Here’s one for conspiracy theorists. The weather recently has been scorching (for an English February) and with very little wind. You would have expected Poole Bay to be like a millpond. But the other day – well, there was a sizeable and very long swell of the sort we’ve never seen in the bay before, no matter what the weather. And strangely enough somebody (Corallian Energy, apparently) just happens to have planted an oil rig out there. Coincidence? Or something more sinister? Just a swell someone’s keeping an eye on what’s going on.
