It’s cold out there … [update 2]

With the UK enduring its coldest winter for thirteen years, looks like another ten inches of global warming is on the way.

    It is the first time that such extensive snowfall has been forecast in one night across Britain since the night of Feb 7 1991, when almost the entire country was blanketed in white.
    The last time the south east saw similar depths of snow was in December 1996…

It’s cold out there.  Colder than a ticket-taker’s smile at a Super 14 game. Colder than charity.  Colder than a politician’s heart.  A hell of a lot colder than the warmists ever said it would be.

UPDATE 1:  The facts continue to debunk global warming alarmism says Professor Bob Carter in The Australian [hat tip Climate Science Coalition]:

    THE National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported that October in the US was marked by 63 record snowfalls and 115 lowest-ever temperatures.
    Over the past few years, similar signs of colder than usual weather have been recorded all over the world, causing many people to question the still fashionable, but now long outdated, global warming alarmism…
    The present global financial crisis should be inducing politicians not to squander money on non-solutions to non-problems. Yet to support their plans for emissions taxation Western governments, including ours, are still propagating scientifically juvenile greenhouse propaganda underpinned only by circumstantial evidence and GCM computer gamesmanship." 

UPDATE 2: Crampton points out “you can still go to iPredict and short sell real-money stocks that pay off at $1 if 2009 is the warmest year on record. Those stocks currently trade at $0.17 (17% chance of it being the warmest year on record); my best analysis suggests the real probability is about 5%.... Easy money, if you think that it's fairly unlikely that 2009 will be the warmest year on record...”

I just posted on a British website about this; pointing out how global warming clearly seems to have missed the UK lately...and...(unsurprisingly?)...have been hit with a barrage of left wingers attacking my comments! ha ha!

Despite my suggestion they may care to...ummmm...take a look outside their window and then explain to me where the 'warming' actually is, still it has no effect on the irrational and socialist! ha ha!

(They will 'literally' refuse to believe what their eyes are seeing in order to hold to ideology...bizarre!)

Of course, you can still go to iPredict and short sell, real money, stocks that pay off at $1 if 2009 is the warmest year on record. Those stocks currently trade at $0.17 (17% chance of it being the warmest year on record); my best analysis suggests the real probability is about 5%.... Easy money, if you think that it's fairly unlikely that 2009 will be the warmest year on record...
