He doesn't even know about the real drought of 1975-6 in the U.K. He doesn't know about the real droughts in the U.S. in the 1930s and the 1960s.He is unaware that temperatures thus far in 2011 are cooler worldwide than most of the last ten years. He does not know that climate scientists state that a warmer climate will mean less extreme weather.
