It wasn't just that temperatures went crazy. It was also a year of yet ever more weather extremes. From disappearing snow in America to unprecedented flooding in the UK, things are already getting undeniably crazy. Is it possible for politicians to remain silent in the face of this accelerating chaos?
Notice how climate change is on the lips of every government minister these days. It's as if they haven't been in denial for the last 30 years. The seas warm and rise, houses are flooded, good agricultural land is ruined, and the government limps reluctantly to the rescue - blaming everyone else for the problem.
