2010 joint warmest on record

The two most respected national weather services in the US, Nasa and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), agreed that 2010 tied with 2005 as the hottest since records began in 1880.

Overall 2010 and 2005 were 1.12F (0.62C) above the 20th century average when taking a combination of land and water surface temperatures across the world.




Despite this important news it appears that many UK media have decided not to report this story . Maybe they feel that after the freezing UK temperatures in December, it is difficult to talk about the warming of the planet ?

Yet another confusion about weather and climate?

When will they understand what is going on – floods in Australia and Brazil, record low winter temperatures in UK and USA – all a result of a climate that is changing.

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and who is keen to "manage" the effects of shifting weather patterns on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and it has evolved over 12 years to inspire engagement with climate change outside our back doors, in our personal gardens and green spaces. My mission is to fertilise and expand this platform to grow a community of global gardeners communicating about the effects of climate change on our plants and exploring how each individual can make small changes in our lives to become more sustainable. The future of our gardens and #OurPlanet is in our hands - please plant your own seeds for our collective sustainable future.
