Time to plan for changing weather
Forecasters tell us that the weather is about to improve. High time, too, many might say, just one month short of the summer solstice.
The same forecasters, and others very like them, have been telling us for a decade and more about global warming. Ireland, they say, will not suffer the worst effects of the phenomenon.
We will not turn into a desert. On the contrary, Ireland will grow wetter and windier.
