How strange to find "0" comments under this article and I can only assume that some are hidden somewhere. Trudy Mitic has so perfectly caught the feelings of so many I talk with in her article "The perplexing willingness to ignore reality". It feels like some sort of affirmation that we are not mad - perhaps the masses who ignore this elephant are! How do we get their attention? The connection between rampant consumption, unbridled air travel and total disregard for all carbon-saving aspects of lifestyle and climate change must be made by each of us since governments have little but lip service to offer. We can lead the way! Thank you, Trudy, for providing the feeling that we are not alone and as a longstanding grower I appreciated the references to the gardener's world and the climate change effects there.
