    too bad it's not REALLY "climate" change.........

    if you dont know the real cause, then you have not been paying attention to world events for the last 60 years or so :eek:

    You can't use a single year as proof of climate change, it will only show over a period of time.

    Nothing will convince the critics of global warming. Even if snow disappeared from the planet. They would say it is normal.

    I was woken up by an earthquake early last year. I then went back to sleep.

    As this has never happened to me before, I'm in total agreement with Munich Re's assessment that 2008 was a particularly bad year for this sort of thing. Given that climate change is mooted as a possible cause, if I recycle my carrier bags and don't print out unnecessary emails will it stop this happening again?
