I might have well have labelled this thread " King Canute" but given I have a brother very senior in the Met Office, I decided he did not deserve that title. The summit cannot guarantee any results, and it is just big business, and perhaps a global distraction on a " fond" issue, whilst in fact have you heard much about the global economy recentl?. A few persons in suits cannot dictate the weather, and when we have floods, they are not "evidence" of anything except it has rained a lot. England certainly cannot support solar power, maybe some wave, but it's trifling. Here at bat towers, I am re-assured by my massive fireplace, but if you think a meeting in Paris is going to stop the Maldives from flooding, you may need to think again, whilst lapping up this propaganda. I have had the conversations and looked up the data.
