Global Warning

A graphic report appeared in yesterday's Independent newspaper
about Australia possibly being the first developed country fundamentally
to be hit by global warming.

If their 6 year drought
does not end within the next few weeks, crop
irrigation will be banned as the remaining water
will be for drinking only. Crops, trees and cattle will
die and food supplies hit

Thursday's Independent newspaper had a more light hearted comment:

[quote] The flowering of the hawthorn bush has, for centuries, been an infallible sign in England that the month of May has arrived. But, this year, in our warm spring, its scented creamy-white flowers are appearing in many places a good three weeks earlier than normal [/quote]

Since my "maytrees" pseudonym is based
on the hawthorn trees maybe it needs to be changed to
"apriltrees".
