The PETA-FemoNazi recipe to stop floods and hot weekends is to demand men give up meat or live without sex. There's no more persuasion for civilization — according to PETA it's their way or the highway, and most men must be too stupid to realize the PETA powers of climate prophesy are unquestionable. After all, there's no chance that animal activists could be fooled by emotional soppy propaganda pushed by Global bankers, billionaires and UN industrial cartels, right? PETA can tell those moist adiabatic lapse rates from the missing tropospheric hot spots. If only men could too!

PETA strays so far out their lane they end up in orbit. They alternately blame bad weather on meat-eating, then on men, on toxic masculinity and then they blame the babies too. It's breathtaking in grandiose, overbearing, imperious intolerance. Apparently omnivorous men don't deserve to have babies. A ban on procreation for meat-eating-men would be... purposeful. They actually say that. Your value to the world is measured in tons of carbon. A bit like a farm animal really? Except PETA select for small and obedient.

Bottom line: It's noble to treat your significant other as a cheap political toy, but remember, be nice to animals. That's ethics the PETA way.

Snow in September after temperatures drop to -2C in Scotland

First snow in the Cairngorms.

First snow in the Cairngorms.
Britain has seen its first snow of the season as temperatures fell across the country.

A dusting was said to have settled on the High Cairngorms mountain range on Friday morning with patches reported on the mountains of Ben Macdui and Braeriach in the eastern highlands.

After a summer of heatwaves many snow patches in Scotland have melted away. In previous years long lying snow patches can persist all summer and sometimes have even lasted through to the next winter.

Snowy weather is historically unlikely in Cairngorm in the middle of September but on average there are three days during this week each year when it rains. It was a jet stream of cool air ran over
