Last November Greensburg, Kansas, best known until this month for the size of its well, held its annual clean-up day. High school students cleared rubbish, washed windows and raked leaves. 83 year old Lois Coberly had asked for help with a 'big lot of leaves' that had fallen in her yard She rewarded the students who helped pile them up, and the city staff who took them away, with cups of hot chocolate. After they had finished they moved across the street to a neighbour's yard and cleared her leaves away too.
On 4 May 2007 Greensburg was destroyed by a tornado nearly two miles wide. The buildings worth saving can be counted on your fingers.
Poor Greensburg. Anyone who still questions the reality of global warming must have their head in a Bush.
