Monbiot's dodgy forecast

With heavy snow affecting the east of the UK in particular, we recall the words of George Monbiot's Guardian column last week, advising us that climate change had fundamentally altered the timing of Britain's seasons:

'It is now mid-February, and already I have sown 11 species of vegetable. I know, though the seed packets tell me otherwise, that they will flourish. Everything in this country - daffodils, primroses, almond trees, bumblebees, nesting birds - is a month ahead of schedule.'

Hope you're not relying on those veggies, George.

Mocking our dreams, Guardian, 15 February 2005
