This photo taken from our back garden in February, could soon be a thing of the past if rising temperatures continue to spiral at its unprecedented rate. April in England and Wales will be the warmest on record. The CET (Central England Temperature) is the oldest recorded measure of weather in the world with data going back more than 348 years.
The average temperature from May 2006-April 2007 is 11.6c beating the previous record of 11.1c 12 month period ending October 1995. The effects of temperature rise are being experienced on a global scale. Here in the Uk and especially in the South East we have just had the mildest and wettest winter for over a hundred years and now at the moment we are suffering a major drought, as there has be no appreciable rain for 9 weeks.
