Does Schnapps count? :wink
The last interglacial had less ice, higher sea levels, and warmer temperatures than this one. So, according to the evidence so far, human activity must have a COOLING effect.

Thanks for the reminder GD.Also worth considering if you are in regular contact with small children,Whooping cough is on the increase,it's been discovered that immunisation many years ago,has now ceased to protect.A much more serious illness for an adult!

Got mine in late October or early November. As it turned out I didn't need them, never caught a thing.

True, silverhair, we have a queue at my doctor.
They only take 12 patients each day because the doctor must be present when the shots are given.
Apparently, some people have suffered from Anaphylactic shock in the past.
