A Short History Of Climate Change Conferences #history

Geoff has excelled himself this time with a topical tale. (Or is it topical, being so far in the past.)

‘Where’s dad?’

‘Watching the clouds.’

‘It’s verging on paranoia, you know.’

‘I know that but try telling him. The Big Guy says this, the Big Guy says that. You know what he’s like when he’s had one of those apocalyptical tablets. Sits by the letter box waiting for the post to update him.’

‘Has he said what the Big Guy was danging on about this time?’

‘Nope, only it’s about the weather and we’ll need a bigger boat. Oh and Ham’s been sent to talk to the chap who runs the circus to see if he can source two lions, two tigers and a couple of mandolins.’
