"Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past."

Independent Newspaper March 2000 (experts from the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit).....

"Children just aren't going to know what snow is"

"British children could have only virtual experience of snow. Via the internet, they might wonder at polar scenes - or eventually "feel" virtual cold ".

"Global warming, the heating of the atmosphere by increased amounts of industrial gases, is now accepted as a reality by the international community.

Independent Newspaper January 2013...

"Snow: travel chaos with flights and trains cancelled, roads closed, 36 hours of blizzards and 10,000 without electricity across Britain".

"Strong winds mean blizzards – and the big freeze lingers into next week".

"Motorists were stranded in cars across the UK today as heavy snowfall left thousands of people without power, closed schools and caused widespread disruption across the travel network".

The met office say that by 2017, temperatures will not have risen significantly for nearly 20 years.

But it won't stop the global warming gravy train...


  1. Koch-Funded Study Finds 2.5°F Warming Of Land Since 1750 Is Manmade, ‘Solar Forcing Does Not Appear To Contribute’

    … solar forcing does not appear to contribute to the observed global warming of the past 250 years; the entire change can be modeled by a sum of volcanism and a single anthropogenic [human-made] proxy.

    I know you don't like trading links but since this research was by a previous donor to the sceptic society who cherry pick the data to give their impression of validity. And local climate variations has nothing to discount AGW as the snowfall this winter up here so far is negligible.

  2. hi cynical...I hope you like the windmill picture. Was thinking of you ;)
    I've always accepted that the climate is constantly changing. I don't accept that it has anything to do with us. The met office have admitted that there's been no change in global temps in the last 17 years despite their previous predictions of steady temp rises as CO2 rises due to more fossil fuel use ( mainly in China and India etc). This forecast and belief in the dangers of CO2 has resulted in thousands of industrial jobs lost and a switch to 'green' energy leaving us perilously close to the lights going out. This catastrophe was due to the theory of man made global warming. And now they're seeing it's a fallacy.

    I checked out your link and see it only goes back 250 years so it conveniently misses out the medieval warm period. If they had used this period then the graph would have been different. But like I've said before it's pointless trading links. The met office are cheerleaders for lobbying the govt / BBC etc to change climate policy so they're the one's that will determine how we proceed ( windmill or proper power generation).
    You used to be able to walk across the ice to the continent of Europe but can't do that now. It melted before we invented cars or power stations etc.

    You might not have snow this week but London and Yorkshire and Northumberland and Aviemore have some. Oh and China and Israel and India and Florida ;)
