Is global warming affecting Islay?

As global warming makes the temperatures rise in some parts of the world it looks like Islay has got its fair share as well. According to a reliable source the temperatures were so high in the last week of May and beginning of June that everyone was walking around in shorts getting a tan. They even considered starting up coconut farming.. I wonder how the climate on Islay will look like in 50 years or so when global warming really sets off. One thing is sure though, it wont hurt the tourist industry on Islay.
