England Will Never Have Snow---Ever Again

[T]he warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become "a very rare and exciting event".

"Children just aren't going to know what snow is," he said.

A shame. Oh, wait, that was said in the year 2000, as in thirteen years ago. Well, his predictions might have been right. What's the weather like in Britain in 2013? Hot, humid, steamy?


Well, it's not the first time climate scientists have failed miserably at predicting the effects of global climate change. Do a Google search for the others---they're great fun.

In any case, when climatologists state that man-made climate change has irrevocably triggered a massive rise in sea levels that will one day swamp the coastal cities of modern civilization...well, I get a little suspicious. Not because it's an unfathomable scenario---I think it's plausible---but because in the past they have been so aggressively wrong with their doomsday predictions. I'm fairly certain manmade global warming is real, but I think we've got a bit more time before things really get bad.
