Adapting to the heatwave

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:02 am by aleksan

The heatwave grinds on all over the Northern Hemisphere with deaths in many countries, and major tragedies in Greece and Japan. We are to expect this trend to continue and worsen over the next few decades even if we all agree to slow down Global Warming and Climate Change. Us old people find it harder to personally adapt to continuous heat and there are increasing deaths. The garden and farm need a good dose of rain and here at Terstan we have been exploring drought resistant planting. My brother David and my sisters Isobel and Jane are growing long rooted grasses and Lucerne on the farm with some success – we will all have to adapt to survive, or become extinct a bit earlier than predicted
