The Pineapple Apocalypse

4 0 0

From The Hutch

The rain has stopped, and the sun is out so it’s a good time to have a serious discussion about the future.

And I’m talking about climate change.

The best scientists in the land have declared that Napier’s recent flooding is a sign of climate change.

To me this is not a particularly bold statement. Quite obviously the climate changed. Last week it was sunny. This week it was raining. Now it’s sunny again.

That clearly represents a change in the climate.

What I am looking for is a more definitive answer as to what is going to happen to the weather, particularly this summer. We will delve a little deeper into our apocalyptic future in a moment.

Bold Predictions

The problem is, if you are looking for bold predictions from weather forecasters, then don’t. They don’t do them. For example, this is Niwa’s rainfall predictions for November-January 2021.

“Rainfall is most likely to be near normal in the north of the North Island and about equally likely to be near normal or below normal for all remaining regions.”

Ah, thanks. We live in a country where variable weather is........
