"Lunar Gardening Calendar"

Does that mean you only garden at night..? :-)

For most believers I'd sentence them to at least 6 months with no remission, rather than a paltry 24hours. Still better some than none.

Tomorrow 9pm the BBC are doing a what would Britain be like in a low energy future programme... oopse sorry it's called 24hrs in the past. It should be compulsory viewing for those who see the past with rose coloured glasses. They'd have to go back another 100 years for the CO2 footprint to be the right size.

One of my sources for weather news not on the BBC, reports some impressive late April snowfalls on the Turkey/Iran border, 1600 metres altitude; and in Saskatoon where the record fall for the date was well and truly broken.

What is interesting for me about the current colder spell is that my free Lunar Gardening Calendar which I got in January says to watch out for a cold spell from today; the weather started to get wetter yesterday. and colder on Saturday afternoon If only the MO were as precise as a free lunar gardening calendar.

I think in some regions, for instance Scotland and East Midlands is where the warmer/colder urban/rural message gets through fairly often for a little while now. Perhaps it's because these regions have some pretty rural areas such as the Peak District and some fairly large urban areas like Derby-Nottingham (which are linked by built up areas all along the old A52). Anyone commuting from the north into Derby/Nottingham doesn't really need to be told that there is a difference.

It's always been a good question to ultra warmists why weather forecasters say "a few degrees" and climate models use a fraction of a degree.

@Harry my guess is you get paid at Feed In Tariff rate of say 24p/KWh for the electricity you generate, you are then billed at retail rate of say 13p/KWh for electric you use connect your solar panel to daylights and then you will make say 11p/KWh.. not accounting for exports.

Last year guy from the reef eco charity said "wow it's strange my mum's solar panels in the UK make good money, yet here on our island (where its's very sunny) our solar system doesn't save us money, we run the diesel generators all night to power the sleeping room fans, cos our project island is not connected to the grid. We do just about manage to power the freezer on solar, but can only risk opening it once a day."
We discussed the biggest problems to the reef and environment, which as I suspected is past dynamite fishing, todays Chinese tourist who can't swim so walk over the coral, and locals disrespect for the environment re rubbish and over exploitative seahorse fishing etc. Seems to me a guy like him loves his project and needs every dollar for it so of course he will a accept money from global warming charities and he'snot going to do anything to rock the boat with them. And it's the same for thousands of other NGOs/researchers all over the developing world. well actually anywhere in the world I guess.

I notice that the BBC weather presenters now occasionally point out that urban temperatures are higher than rural ones. Is this a tacit admission that they've been misleading us for years..?

Further to my earlier post about the number of comments on Booker today...The post I was trying to remember was this one:

Ironically, it was another piece about temperature fiddling...

It has - at this moment - 31818 comments

I see that Chris Booker's post in the DT about the GWPF's investigation is heading to 5k+ comments. Is this a repeat of the 25k for a previous blog (memory fails - even though I commented on it!!!)

I haven't noticed the Guardian welcoming this GWPF initiative. Perhaps they are busy digging up the dirt on the experts who will conduct the investigation.
