The header says it all – shit comes around…and climate change is making it more severe and more visible to us all. No swimming anymore in mid-july in the gulf of Finland due to cyanobacteria bloom. I have never before experienced blue cheese as topping on the water – the sea felt really repellent by all means! We all humans have to actively fight global warming by small individual steps – if the small individual goes first, we can only hope that big corporations and governments follow! Whishing you all a colourful and bright autumn!
