Strange changes are being seen in the weather over the last five months, which may have major implications for farmers and insomniacs.
Scientists have warned that every morning, dawn is breaking a little earlier. And every evening, the sun is setting a little later. Some are suggesting that this is related to the warming trend seen since February.
"In fact," says Dr Grant Cheque, "if the days continue to get longer, at current rates it will be light all the time by March 2015. Governments must act. Please can I have a grant?"
The radical and unprecedented changes to solar availability are also being noticed by hardworking people and pensioners. A woman we picked at random in a Bletchley bus queue said,
"It's terrible. It's even light at 10 o'clock. Makes my Arnold awful frisky. I've started buying the hay fever tablets that make him drowsy. And he doesn't even have hay fever."
Meanwhile, in Australia, scientists are warning that it's getting increasingly dark. They are asking for funding to look into whether the two phenomena are related.
