Scots express their fear of winter

According to a survey for the Scottish government reported by heraldscotland, Scotland has seen a marked increase in concerns about extreme weather.

Extreme weather is a bigger concern for people than terrorism, a survey says.

Weather emergencies topped a list, with about half of those questioned saying they are very or quite concerned (49%).

The proportion is up from the 38% recorded last year and is higher than power cuts (46%), health emergencies (37%) and terrorism (31%).

The research was published as the Scottish Government unveiled its "ready for winter" campaign.

Is the age balance of those responding a factor here? I assume the government will now be regulating the weather.

Demetrius - maybe independence means an independent climate too?

Is this "extreme weather" as in winter, or is it "extreme weather" as in they've swallowed the warmist nonsense hook line and sinker and are panicking about hurricanes or something?

WY - I think it's mainly winter.
