North Fife Climate

Here in North Fife this years summer environment was the wettest I have experienced in 28 years. A warm spring yielded abundant blossom and now abundant fruit,though short in sugar, the vegetables are giant and the only down side is that the garden grapes have not matured due to lack of sun.
This title explains what science knows about climate change, how it will affect us, its impact on different areas, and what we can do about it.Most of us are familiar with the terms climate change and global warming, but not too many of us understand the science behind them. We don't really understand how climate change will affect us, and for that reason we might not consider it as pressing a concern as, say, housing prices or the quality of local education. This book explains the scientific knowledge about global climate change clearly and concisely in engaging, nontechnical language, describes how it will affect all of us, and suggests how government, business, and citizens can take action against it.If people don't quite understand the seriousness of climate change, it is partly because politicians and the media have misrepresented the scientific community's strong consensus on it - politicians by selectively parsing the words of mainstream scientists, and the media by presenting "balanced" accounts that give the views of a small number of contrarians equal weight with empirically supported scientific findings. The science is complex, couched in the technical language of sinks.Climate Change What it Means for Us, Our Children, and Our Grandchildren: What It Means for Us, Our Children, and Our Grandchildren (American and Comparative ... and Comparative Environmental Policy) .
