Circle of life

So it's the 'summer' again, and Irish people in their thousands are trying to escape from the country the Romans wouldn't colonise, because it was too miserable.

Trying to escape is proving difficult enough, though, between raised airfares and radar malfunctions.

I don't know if anyone else has noticed the weird circularity of this summer.

People are trying to fly away to escape the bad weather;

Flying causes pollution;

Pollution causes global warming;

Global warming causes droughts, floods and a need for renewable fuels, as well as bad weather;

Droughts, floods and the loss of land to renewable fuel crops cause food and fuel price rises;

Fuel prices rises cause air travel prices to rise;

Ergo, people trying to escape the bad weather a) can't get away from it because they can't afford it, or, b) contribute to the bad weather by escaping.
