Why blame the weather men? and Volcanoes

I just cannot see the point of it. They seem to get it about right round here though they did forecast some rain today and it hasn't materialised yet. However the night is still young. It isn't an exact science and I can't imagine it's likely to be in the near future.

Being interested in volcanoes I was intrigued to see the volcano which replaced Krakatoa when it blew itself to bits in 1883 is active again and looks like following in father's footsteps. Let's hope there is no loss of life this time. Some extremely strange people are saying it's mankind's fault and this is down to global warming. So presumably man made global warming was alive and well and living near Java in 1883? Sometimes comments on newspaper stories are just as interesting as the article itself.
