The New Zealand Centre for Political Research invited Nigella's old dad down to say a few words and this is the result. He included this piece of folk wisdom:
... The average annual temperature in Helsinki is less than 5ºC. That in Singapore is in excess of 27ºC – a difference of more than 22ºC. If man can successfully cope with that, it is not immediately apparent why he should not be able to adapt to a change of 3ºC, when he is given a hundred years in which to do so.Say no more! It's a great read, Jack.
On a similar topic, a recent Sp!ked article talks of the notion of "peak oil" and how it may (or may not) affect us.
