You got a Big Question and have no idea how to google? Just ask Sir Howard and get the low down on everything
Question from Bob in Runcorn: Why are we here in the UK experiencing such strange meteorological phenomena these days when it comes to the weather, what with the snow, freezing rain and hard cold winds? Is it global changes in our fragile environment caused by fracking, carbon poisoning and the North Koreans loonies?
Sir Howard writes: No, you dummy. It’s winter. Get over it.
(Sir Howard Elston DOA, CBE, will respond to all queries using his research skills and in-depth knowledge of the natural world)
