Apocalypse (s)now?

While all of the papers have been devoting plenty of column inches to the snow and icy temperatures outside our doors, only one has given serious front-page coverage to the really significant weather-related story to have emerged in the last few days. The Guardian's piece on the record warmth recorded in the Arctic in February makes for deeply unsettling reading. Suffice to say that if it proves to be more than merely a freak event, then we're in big trouble - and certainly have more to worry about than a few cancelled trains and empty shelves in Tesco.
