Tropical England

Tropical England“. Steven Goddard returns with some insight into an information campaign by the UK’s National Trust. They warn that predicted temperature rises due to AGW will lead to dramatic changes in England’s vegetation and crops. Think Portugal; drier and without pastureland. Steven says they’ll love it! This is the “what if climate change is good?” approach.

After an obligatory round of weather forecast bashing, he waves away England’s 0.5°C of warming as “likely due to UHI effects” but neglects to offer any statistical basis for his unsubstantiated claim.

So there hasn’t been any warming, but if there is warming it’s going to be nice. Have I got that right Steven?
