Shocked
I'm not sure whether your are responding to my cynical view of Lydia's implied state .... or the topic question: Q: what measurement is calibrated by use of grass, leaves and trees?

In the case of the latter, there is a connection with climate, in that it reflects the effects of climate change but the environmental connection is purely incidental.

As it turned out, the turkey didn't come to any harm - well, beyond that which was expected. Plenty of red wine with dinner - steady drinking......

No idea about the question btw.

Off to Bruges in the morning for New Year - which will, incidentally, take place an hour earlier. Proof if it were needed that the real new year is the solstice.

Q: what measurement is calibrated by use of grass, leaves and trees :?

Noooooooooooooooooooo! I have no idea what that is (and I don't need to know!).

The metric I'm after is far more prosaic .... even "mainstream" (well, it's often mentioned on Radio 4).

Shocked didn't know it was measurable, so not that, either.

No, but an interestingly wrong interpretation of the hint.

Maybe another (clearer) hint would be in order?

Recap.

Question: what measurement is calibrated by use of grass, leaves and trees :?

Hints:
  • Where this is most applicable, there is precious little vegetation.

  • The regular reporting of these measurements is considered vital.

No, sorry.

Another hint - there are thirteen gradations on the scale.

OOPS! Missed your reply, Susie.

Getting cold, again. I hadn't noticed you taking two bites of the cherry .....

Susie wrote:Wind speed?
was the answer I was looking at; wind=yes, speed=no. So, who came up with the idea (and gave their name to it)?
