Not sure who you’re indicating are the blind here Bonce?

You won’t hear it from the BBC, Sky or the climate nut jobs but having claimed just 5 years ago that the Great Barrier Reef had been destroyed beyond repair, according to the Australian sea and Ocean scientists, the coral has now recovered to the highest level it’s been since records began and oh yes the ozone layer is quickly recovering all on its own. Isn’t nature wonderful? It’s going to be hot and sunny again later this week, but then it is summer. 😎
I can't see any quote.
However, climate change is real, and whether you believe it or not, I care not a jot. I honestly think we've passed the point of no return.
These people aren't 'nut jobs'.

The study on the Great Barrier Reef is a constant measure by the Australian Institute of Marine Science and nobody knows more about the reef than they do. Of course the nay sayers try to find reasons to still be negative but considering that only five years ago these same “experts” concluded that the reef was beyond recovery it’s no surprise that they just can’t admit to being wrong without undermining the rest of the garbage they come out with. I’ve never denied climate change Bonce, it’s been happening since the planet was formed but I 100% disagree that it’s human caused. The planets been hotter, colder and had levels of carbon dioxide much higher and lower than we have today and none of it was human caused. It’s no different now but if you want to believe it is that’s up to you.

The same country is experiencing catastrophic floods and wildfires beyond the norm.

It may be that the unusually high temperatures and warming of the seas around the Great Barrier Reef are contributing to its recovery.

With another heatwave coming, me and the missus had a serious chat about looking into desert plants for the garden. Big cacti are a helluva expensive though.

The link I've provided is by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority - I believe you to be talking about the same report as I am!

I have to say, things are looking very serious where I live. Smile

Funnily enough I’m thinking the same way Lusty. My soil is extra fee draining so it holds virtually no moisture and this year my perennials have been a disaster. About the only plants that have produced are the Salvias and herb types like Lavender and Rosemary. I’ve got two compost heaps so I’m going to mulch heavily this autumn and hope that the winter and Spring are wetter but either way I’m going to look towards more drought tolerant plants for next year, including in tubs which I can at least control. I never have to worry about plants sitting in wet clay soil over winter so I’m also planning to leave the dahlias where they are and hope they survive.

I have a sandy soil too and climate change is definitely affecting the wildlife in my garden...
