pushmi-pullyu award nominee

'Get your barbie ready - we're in for a sizzler', headlines the Independent. The Met Office's chief meteorologist, Ewen McCallum, says the period from June to August is likely to see prolonged spells of hot weather. It's 'odds-on for a barbecue summer'.

50% of barbecues are fed on wood charcoal and most of that charcoal comes from the world's tropical forests. Today's Independent also devotes pages 1, 4 and 5 to saving rainforests. Headline this time: 'How Britons fuel destruction of the rainforest'.

Previous nominees for heading in two directions at the same time here and here.
