Global warming or hot air?

Scotland's recent weird weather is caused, say some, by global warming. Others disagree.

The director of the PA Weather Centre dismissed the suggestion that global warming was responsible. The Met Office says :

The weather this year has been a bit of a mixed bag but that's just one of those things.....It's not what we would call freak weather.
But professor of environmental change at Edinburgh University, Sarah Metcalfe, proclaims:
The patterns of weather have been consistent with those predicted by global warming

I'd go along with the weather professionals, not the "environmental change" professors.

Today, there's no rain, no clouds but thousands and thousands of tourists.
