Warmest April for 140 years and no one is worried

Anyone living in the UK can't of helped notice how warm April has been and this week the Met office confirmed just how warm it has been. The Hadley Centre, which is part of the Met office confirmed that the same trend was now happening all over the world and was in line with their models for global warming.

Yet it seems that very few people are changing their lifestyles to cut down on their carbon footprints. Short haul flights are increasing every year, recycling rates are still the second lowest Europe and people seem to think they have plenty of time to make the change.

My friend Huge Gage had a great idea - at the end of the weather forcast, the presenter should then ask people why they thought it was so much warmer and then suggest that perhaps they should start taking some practical steps to reduce their carbon footprint.
