Scorchio

Yesterday England beat the West Indies at Headingly by an innings and 283 runs. It was remarkable for three things: the third heaviest win in England's test match history; the heaviest defeat the West Indies have ever suffered and it was also officially the coldest ever day in test match history. 7 degrees celsius. In three and a half weeks it's the longest day. My avatar picture was taken this time last year - I got sunburn. When May's average temperatures are published, what will the headlines be?

I don't understand global warming.

It has been a bit cooler here for spring temps as well. We had a mid April long freeze spell that was cruel to the flowering plants. We are in a serious drought as well about eleven inches down for the year.

I think the big concern is in the unusual patterns of weather, when talking about global warming.

Here is my prophet of the obvious take on it...If it took 100 years to soil up the earth with the industrial boom, it is going to take a much longer time to clean it up.

So, is your contention that global warming is causing record cricket scores?

Well, Dave yes. It appears that our cricketers are more suited to playing in the cold. As the Gulf Stream disappears over the next couple of decades and these islands become more arctic-like, we will have a team capable of beating anybody. That is if there's any flat ground left to play on.
