Heavy summer rain in the UK was inconsistent with global warming predictions, as George Monbiot noted:
It wasn’t meant to happen like this. The climate scientists told us that our winters would become wetter and our summers drier. So I can’t claim that these floods were caused by climate change, or are even consistent with the models.
Not a problem, Georgie. Those predictions have just been revised:
According to the Marine Conservation Society, this year’s heavy rain was a result of global warming and could soon be the annual norm. “If you look at long-term predictions for climate change, it’s a situation that we may have to get used to,” said coastal pollution officer Thomas Bell.
Getting used to rain? In the UK? This could take centuries.
