Climate change 'could be a fashion disaster' - Telegraph
Climate change could be about to claim a new victim – the fashion industry.

Beppe Modenese, the founder of Milan Fashion Week, has predicted that the "whole fashion system will have to change" ...

Surely, if you don't know if there is going to be a heatwave one minute, a blizzard the next, a cyclone soon after, all topped off with your high street being submerged by rising seas, then everyone will need a bigger wardrobe? If I believed in anthropogenic climate cataclysms I might even be tempted to buy shares in the fashion industry.

We can only hope that they and their ridiculous fabric fantasies get stuffed in the steamy footlocker of Climatology. Around here they've already been meaningless and out-of-sync for ages.
