So what exactly is your position on climate change, Mr Boro Boy? You keep posting stories or images that snipe about the subject without expressing your own view.

Tell us what you think and why. Then we can debate the subject properly rather than going down rabbit holes like a picture that was misinterpreted.

It's very difficult to show climate change in a single fraction of a second photograph. All you can really capture is unusual weather, as an example of the impact of climate change.

It's like trying to show the impact of increasing tariffs on say polluting vehicles entering London. You could take a picture of an angry man in a van turning his vehicle round before he crosses the line. But what would that show? - one driver turning round does not prove there's a problem, and without further context could be caused by many other factors (his job was cancelled, his satnav destination is wrong, he wanted to park outside Greggs on the other side of the road).

This image shows the effect of an unusually warm start to the summer. Maybe it's a blip, maybe it's part of a trend. From the picture alone we can't tell.

I agree with you that the media do over-dramatise a powerful image, and hold it up as evidence of a wider issue. To some extent they remove the picture from its correct and immediate context. Some publishers are worse than others, to the point of deliberately twisting the facts to suit their own agenda. Chinese whispers plays a role too as the picture goes around the social networks.

I agree with you that the media tends to make one image work far beyond its original purpose, but not that you can then deduce that the big issue (global warming/climate change) is also similarly exaggerated.

The first is a conspiracy site, the second is largely paraphrasing Wikipedia. You could just read the source article:
