IS IT just me? A report says that nasty global warming is to blame for. . . wait for it. . . making yellow-bellied marmots bigger.
Seeing as these critters live in America, I'm surprised it's not all BP's fault.
According to Dr Arpat Ozgul, a biologist at London's Imperial College, the wee furry beasts are larger because extra hot weather means they've more time to grow.
That's all very well, except I remember that, only last year, we were warned that Scottish sheep on remote St Kilda were getting smaller.
Because of global warming.
