Unfortunately the "yeah, it's called winter" is exactly how global warming denialists respond in the United States (in fact, I thought I could safely assert that English speaking global warming denialists almost universally respond using this statement, but perhaps not).

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."

One of my daughters was born in Trowbridge at the old cottage hospital. Funny old town then, grim now though.

That's a shame.
Haven't been through there for years. My grandfather was a railwayman and they lived by the canal.
