Turned out nice again....

A few weeks ago, the author Richard Mabey read an essay on Radio 3, spread across 5 nights.
The theme was Changing Climates, but it was more related to the great British weather.

The book is now available. It's a slim volume and beautifully presented, and can be read within an hour, or savoured for longer.
It provides some useful background contexts to teaching about weather.

This from the introduction:
"weather is what happens here and now, to our settlements and landscapes, to us... it changes the way we think and feel, about ourselves and the future..."

You can LISTEN AGAIN to all the five programmes for 'at least a year'...

Also have a discussion about the difference between weather and climate...
