Good afternoon from a very damp Surrey.
Damp as in we are experiencing garden flooding after a prolonged spell of rain, commencing around 11pm yesterday evening. Waterlogged mains drains, unable to cope with the excess rainfall, finally failed this afternoon. We are becoming particularly accustomed to these damp winters and have adjusted our lives accordingly – keeping good stock of chemical toilet solutions on hand, permanently charged torches, keeping Wellington Boots close at hand by our front door.
As you are all aware, I am a keen 0bserver of the incredible work of the remarkable Ben Davidson, also known as Suspicious 0bservers. And as we face another waterlogged yet humid winter, his latest video relating to the next phase in our ever-changing climate’s cycle has piqued my interest. Along with the genius that is Billy Yelverton (also known as Mr2Tuff2 on You Tube), the Sun’s role and its relationship to our climate is examined closely. Are we standing on the precipice of a Mini Ice-Age? That question is also subject to studious examination.
My Sister has also spoken at length about the climate changes we face during our lifetime and I have touched upon some of those points in earlier blogs. Given I have now gathered all of the material necessary for Book 3 (which has, for some reason, decided it wishes to become Book 2), I should be able to blog about her revelations in a separate posting very soon.
In the meantime, please find Ben’s and Billy’s video below. Wishing you all a peaceful Sunday.
