We got us an aurora

I hate to send you to the Guardian, but they’ve got the best picture of the aurora borealis over Stonehenge. If double exposures count.

I’ve never seen the aurora here, but it’s not that unusual. Look at the picture and you’ll see why. Our spot in the sunny south of England is directly across from Hudson Bay. The only reason London isn’t Saskatoon is a vigorous gulf stream.

That, by the way, is how the eco-loons are trying to explain why global warming means we’re so goddamned cold in England these days. They say currents of water? air? are pushing down on the gulf stream.

That’s right, global warming is making Britain colder. Is there nothing it can’t do?

I actually had someone tweet at me the other day, “oh, did you think climate change would make it warmer?” And I’m like, yes? So what was all that stuff about no more snow and 1.5°C and penguins bursting into flames?

Anyway, if I can be arsed to go outside, I’ll have a look for them. They’re only this far south for a few days.
