"The overwhelming sensation..."

The Union:
Sunny, warm week ahead - Forecasters are calling for clear skies and warm temperatures this week. Highs in the mid-60s are expected today and tomorrow... (link)

George Monbiot:
...Winter is no longer the great grey longing of my childhood. ... Across most of the upper northern hemisphere, climate change, so far, has been kind to us. And this is surely one of the reasons why we find it so hard to accept what the climatologists are now telling us. In our mythologies, an early spring is a reward for virtue.
If climate change is to introduce horror into our lives, we would expect - because throughout our evolutionary history we survived by finding patterns in nature - to see that horror beginning to unfold....But the overwhelming sensation, experienced by all of us, almost every day, is that of being blessed by our pollution.
