FILE - In this Thursday, June 28, 2012 file photo, children play on a stranded car in the flood water as torrential downpours cause flash floods in Jarrow, England. Come rain, wind or sunshine, weather has long been Britain's main topic of conversation. Now it has also become a mystery. Meteorologists and climate scientists are meeting Tuesday to discuss why this country has recently experienced icy winters, washed-out summers and the coldest spring in half a century. Scientist Stephen Belcher, who's chairing the workshop, says its goal is to look at whether the weird weather is the result of "a run of natural variability," or the product of human-driven climate change.(AP Photo/Scott Heppell, File)
