« Tourist town relocates temp station to get ‘higher readings’ | Main | Faith-based global warming »


John Boy

While I don't disagree the saying "One swallow does not a summer make" comes to mind. Its one winter, the trend will be the thing to watch for. If it gets colder the GW people will claim the credit for that as well and fudge some more numbers. They will ignore the millions that will die of cold related effects.


Loved all of this. The US had two huge winter storms in as many weeks. The first, unseasonally early, deposited 4.2 m of drifts in some parts and seriously affected air and vehicle travel in the continental US. It was followed a week later by another of similar intensity. Hard on the heels of this came a huge Europe wide wintry blast. 42 froze to death in Poland and there were horrendous disprupts to air and rail travel with large snowfalls and bitter cold. Hard winters over the next few years have been predicted in some quarters as solar activity declines. Ian Pilmer's book tracks some of these declines and the corresponding advance of ice and cold around the world at those times.
Of course it is all just CO2 and on top of that its just humanity's CO2 to blame. If it's warming it's global warming but if it's cooling it's global warming as well. You realise you can't win Ian.

Britain facing one of the coldest winters in 100 years, experts predict

Britain is bracing itself for one of the coldest winters for a century with temperatures hitting minus 16 degrees Celsius, forecasters have warned.

A spokesman for the Met Office said: “It is certainly a while since we had cold weather like this and there isn’t any sign of any milder weather on the way.”

The cold weather comes despite the Met Office’s long range forecast, published, in October, of a mild winter. That followed it’s earlier inaccurate prediction of a “barbecue summer”, which then saw heavy rainfall and the wettest July for almost 100 years.

Paul Michaelwaite, forecaster for, said: “It is looking like this winter could be in the top 20 cold winters in the last 100 years.

It has a gigantic supercomputer, 1,500 staff and a £170m-a-year budget. So why does the Met Office get it so wrong?


>>>So much for the Met Office "mild winter". What does it say for the accuracy of a warm 2010?<<<

Different year, same old cherry-picking.
The answer is nothing.

"However, it is not cold everywhere in the world. North-east America, Canada, North Africa, the Mediterranean, and south-west Asia have all seen temperatures above normal – in many places by more than 5 °C, and in parts of northern Canada, by more than 10 °C."
