Rhodri Morgan should be careful about what he wishes for

Rhodri Morgan is continuing to stand by his claims that climate change would not be ‘entirely unhelpful’ to the Welsh tourism industry, spurred on by John Redwood’s endorsement.

I suggest he reads the Guardian’s interview with Jim Lovelock today (I have to admit I was rather annoyed by the cheeky way Stuart Jeffries treated Lovelock in comparison to the revential way in which he treated a real nutjob like Azzim Tamimi in his article on secularism a couple of weeks ago). You may regard Lovelock as a bit of a Cassandra, but if Morgan’s right about the improving Welsh climate, then Lovelock is right about the resultant population drift. I don’t think that’s quite the ‘tourism’ that Morgan was thinking about.
