A thought for the past

There are two interesting articles which I’m listing together here, even though they have nothing really in common beyond being published – ahem – yesterday.

The first is from The National Trust. Daylight savings time has always struck me as a ridiculous nuisance, and this is a timely reminder that our ancestors were spared such foolishness.

On the other hand, it now seems possible that they did have other, rather more serious problems to contend with, according to this paper published by Nature, which highlights a perhaps unexpected likely consequence of global warming.
