 Hurricane Lorenzo
Topic Originator: Scottn4312  
Date:   Sun 29 Sep 08:57

Declared as a Cat 5 hurricane. Officially the strongest hurricane that far North/East of the Atlantic basin. Obviously by the time it hits the UK the Hurricane status will no longer apply. But it's a very clear and obvious sign of our oceans warming. Those who deny climate change sit along side flat earthers in my eyes as absolute lunatics. Will this see middle aged men in suits divert their attention from a 16 year old activist and start to face up to reality? Doubt it.

Just to answer your bold statement!

Some of us have been around during a UK hurricane!

This won't even be one and you are citing climate change. Us older ones remember all these weather spikes!

2012 caused a lot more damage than 87 up here, only reason 87 is though to be worse is it hit London.

I remember chimneys getting blown off houses in the 60s.

The 1968 January storm is the one my parents remember.

Climate change? Back in the 70s there were hurricanes every Saturday morning, just after Swap Shop. Small boys in the park, jumpers for goalposts. Rush goalie. Two at the back, three in the middle, four up front, one's been sucked up in a tornado. Off to the land of Oz? Possibly, don't quote me on that. Marvellous.

It would be completely foolish to dismiss claims that human activity is responsible for climate change.

Equally, records relating to weather patterns have only been reliably kept for just over a century, so it's impossible to claim with any scientific certainty that the changes we are seeing now are not just another shift in the Earth's ever-changing climate, something that we have evidence of over many millions of years. e.g. it has experienced a number of ice ages with much warmer interludes in between.

Far better, in my humble one, to assume that humans are contributing to climate change and do something about it, rather than sitting around complacently, like 7.5 billion Neros, watching our planet burn.

Sorry GG but I'm not having that. Despite the belief that the Roman emperor fiddled while the fire raged the fact was he wasn't even in the city at the time. He actually promptly returned to head the relief efforts and allowed the homeless to stay in the imperial palaces.

Turn on, Tune in, Drop out.

Is he an ancestor of yours, by any chance, TOWK?

I've disowned the cad. 😉
