Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger

Climate Change ? – Yes No , Maybe


Climate Change ? Yes No  Maybe

If you live in Britain, depending where you are and at any one time, the climate changes.

If you stay in one place in Britain and you work on the land you will know that the climate has changed over the last 50 years or less.

For example on the West of Scotland, on less favoured land, cereals were grown until 25 years ago, but not anymore because the growing season is now not long enough and it has become too wet too often to risk it.

Then we know that in the South of England and moving North continental crops are possible, because the season is long enough to allow it and has got warmer.

Then farmers will remind you that the seasons appear to be all rolling into each other.

Winter into Spring, What Spring ? Summer into Autumn and Autumn into Winter.

So we have snow in June, but mild Christmasses.

Of course this plays havoc with wild life too.

But the most serious of problems for us all are the extremes of climate change

Heavy rains leading to flooding or long periods of drought both affecting crop yields

It makes planning a nightmare for all sorts of services and souls but for nature too.

From Strawberries for Wimbledon to Turkeys for Christmas.

From Bees and Blossom to Hares and Hibernation

There is not much we can do about the immediate problems of the weather though long term we can influence it.

What we need to remember better though is an old saying told to me by a 90 year old farmworker 45 years ago.

“Whatever, Its all according to the Weather”

Look how often we forget that when short or long term planning

“Be Prepared”
