Global Warming and David Attenborough africa series

You may have seen comments about this weeks TV programme presented by David Attenborough on the Wildlife of Africa. In it he said that in parts of Africa temperatures had risen by as much as 3.5 degrees C.  His comments were criticised in the press for being not entirely substantiated.
I have used the Guardian climate change feature to find more evidence on the subject.

Here is a link to the web page I found which gives a broader and more balanced analysis of Global Warming;

Woods and Trees in England

Here are some quotes from the Woodland Trust views on their web site about the report on Woodlands.

"A strong future for England's woods and trees..?

It's critical that the aspirations in the Forests Report can be turned into reality.

It's been almost exactly two years since the Government launched a consultation around plans to sell the public forest estate in England en masse.
What the Government says - and does - about the Independent Panel on Forestry's final report to Government (the 'Forests Report') and the 32 recommendations it makes is a big deal for England's forests, woods and trees."

Visit the Woodland Trust site to see what they think about the report.
