Either: people think, Oh, that's alright, a bit of extra sunshine and higher temperatures.
Or: on the other hand, where is Global Warming on days like these, when you can't venture out on your bike?
youre right. May seem a bit pedantic and insignificant, but for a cool-to-moderate climate, the term global warming signifies improvement, not threat. Therefore, its easy to welcome it.
It could also mean much colder winters and much wetter summers for us. Not that great then is it?
Trouble is we don't know what it means which in my book simply highlights the stupidity of our actions. Bit like shutting your eyes, stepping out into the road and hoping for the best.
