Cli­mate change

Lennox Herald - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

I re­mem­ber one fort­night in May,

Wall to wall sun­shine ev­ery day, This I found hard to be­lieve, As this weather flat­tered to de­ceive. Why should we show sur­prise,

Our norm is con­tin­ual grey skies,

Sum­mers days when cold winds blow,

Fol­lowed by rain, hail and snow. In our town which built the Cutty Sark,

Maybe it should have been Noah’s Ark,

How of­ten has the River Leven been in flood?

Leav­ing shop floors cov­ered in mud. Weather fore­cast­ers Dumb and Dumber,

Al­ways promised is bar­be­cue sum­mer,

Sadly and with last­ing re­gret,

We don’t en­joy bar­be­cues in the wet. We should not find all this strange,

Green peo­ple tell us it’s cli­mate change,

My ques­tion for the wise and sage,

How did we emerge from the Ice Age? Is it just money mak­ing schemes,

Can man con­trol the gulf and jet­streams? No, my name is not Michael, I think weather cli­mate moves in a cy­cle.
