Rural wisdom

Urban sophisticates like to portray us country dwellers as ignoramuses who, among our other failings, don’t “get” climate change.

This is nonsense. It’s people closest to the land who have the best appreciation of the changing climate. In this week’s Cambridge Edition, we hear from local sheep farmer Edward Dinger, “who regularly monitors weather patterns”:
Mr Dinger said typically June July and August were cold months and then gradually it started getting warmer.
Fred Dagg couldn’t have put it better.
