Flooding

I’m sure no one on the right side of the pond can have missed the stories of flooding and misery that have been in the headlines for the past few weeks. Just before the main holiday season, thousands of homes and businesses have been swept away by flood waters which have left a trail of […]

Climate change in 12 minutes

Opinions

People often say to me: “Illusive Man, you callipygian super-being, what are your thoughts on X?” where X can be any topical issue of the moment. Well, I thought it was about time I got it all down in a post for everyone to read. If I’ve missed something important, feel free to let me […]
