No prizes for guessing the age group of these climate deniers. Their lack of attention/interest is probably down to the fact they'll be dead when the sh*t hits the rest of us. What a selfish generation!

Not that we've noticed....we have been in the Algarve over 20 years.....and visited for 20 years before that. My husband has always kept a rain guage, there are wet and dry years yes, but it seems to maintain an average.
