But it has been very mild here in SW England. I have a rose in bloom in my garden. It has been in flower continuously since the summer...

I saw snow in the desert of Arizona several times. Didn't last long.

Book Description
Publication Date: December 12, 2011
With its soaring azure sky and stark landscapes, the American Southwest is one of the most hauntingly beautiful regions on earth. Yet staggering population growth, combined with the intensifying effects of climate change, is driving the oasis-based society close to the brink of a Dust-Bowl-scale catastrophe.

In A Great Aridness, William deBuys paints a compelling picture of what the Southwest might look like when the heat turns up and the water runs out. This semi-arid land, vulnerable to water shortages, rising temperatures, wildfires, and a host of other environmental challenges, is poised to bear the heaviest consequences of global environmental change in the United States. Examining interrelated factors such as vanishing wildlife, forest die backs, and the over-allocation of the already stressed Colorado River--upon which nearly 30 million people depend--the author narrates the landscape's history--and future. He tells the inspiring stories of the climatologists and others who are helping untangle the complex, interlocking causes and effects of global warming. And while the fate of this region may seem at first blush to be of merely local interest, what happens in the Southwest, deBuys suggests, will provide a glimpse of what other mid-latitude arid lands worldwide--the Mediterranean Basin, southern Africa, and the Middle East--will experience in the coming years.

Written with an elegance that recalls the prose of John McPhee and Wallace Stegner, A Great Aridness offers an unflinching look at the dramatic effects of climate change occurring right now in our own backyard.

One of the first effects of AGW is climate fluctuation beyond historic, meaning in the past from the 1800s to when AGW started its real effects 30 years ago. Eventually many records will be broken yearly. Everything is progressing at well beyond the worst case scenarios envisioned 20 years ago, yet there are still the majority who are in denial and want to continue with business as usual and growth. Until they go off cliffs or hit brick walls of reality, or get eaten by cannibal gangs. :lol: 8) :-$ =P~ :twisted:
