They’re depressed in France
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, August 25, 2007

It's official: France's rainy, grey and generally cold summer has been the worst for the past 30 years, the weather service said Friday.

July and August were wet across two-thirds of the country while the Mediterranean region was too dry, said Frederic Nathan, meteorologist at Meteo France.


Temperatures on the Atlantic coast have been on average two or three degrees below seasonal averages, said Jean-Marc Le Gallic from Meteo France.

French chat shows have featured experts who are predicting a spike in the number of cases of depression due to a lack of sun exposure.
Huh. Me, I see it as a sort of blessing in disguise. At least 15,000 old folks didn't die of heat exposure this year.

It sounds kind of silly, but extended periods of weather can affect people’s mood. I remember a few years ago, my area (DC) had a couple months with nothing but rain, and I swear, nearly everybody was in some kind of funk.

Scott, you should know by now: all climate anomalies are caused by Global Warming. If it’s too hot, that’s because the world is warming. If it’s too cold, that’s because GW caused more water to evaporate, which means more clouds, which means less sunlight, which means colder weather. According to the GW camp, the world is going to get so hot it’ll freeze!
