Don’t panic, children

Children especially might enjoy this update…

_Quote_Idiot INDEPENDENT, UK (March, 2000):  “Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past
Britain's winter ends tomorrow with further indications of a striking environmental change: snow is starting to disappear from our lives …
    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

Don’t worry children. Fast forward to today:

And don’t worry. Several feet of global warming over Britain is just one of those signs that global warming is definitely still happening.

Here’s Mahalia Jackson. Still dreaming…


  1. And this is the second year in a row that the UK have had a "one off" snow event.

  2. Ah yes, global warming, the latest in a series of 'the end is nigh' by the lunatic brigade.

  3. Maybe it's warm snow?


  4. And Australia was drying out completely, yet it has had record rainfall years in a row. Still, it's all the effects of global warming if you believe the doomsayers.

  5. It's snowing in Montenegro for the first time in the memory of a 38 year old friend.

    Spokane, WA had four times the average this November. (Over 24 inches.)

    In this La Nina year, we're expected to get 50% more than average and so far that's already been beat.

    Isolated data points? True, but add up enough of them and eventually you have a good statistical sample or trend.

    Worse than being wrong on the data, though, is the method AGW advocates employ. It's simply unempirical, based on dubious assumptions that are adjusted adhoc, and they invariably draw only one conclusion that favors their preference. Completely biased.
