ZenTiger Early predictions are its going to be a long cold winter

You want a prediction about the weather, you're asking the wrong Phil. I'll give you a winter prediction: It's gonna be cold, it's gonna be grey, and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life. - Phil, Groundhog Day.

The current Global Warming line is "climate change means extreme weather events, this was always predicted" as snow closes airports and causes chaos around England.

But was that the prediction before the words "Global Warming" morphed into "Climate Change"?

Well, here's a prediction from the Climate Scientists at the University of East Anglia, the University at the centre of the Climategate controversy, where they have used the sum of many, many years of thorough and precise research to confidently predict the end of snow in Britain. Because of Man-made Global Warming.

..snow is starting to disappear from our lives.

Sledges, snowmen, snowballs and the excitement of waking to find that the stuff has settled outside are all a rapidly diminishing part of Britain's culture, as warmer winters - which scientists are attributing to global climate change - produce not only fewer white Christmases, but fewer white Januaries and Februaries.

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.

Yes, I made this post a year ago. Seems a cold winter in the UK back then wasn't a one-off event. The point of the original post was to take on board the predictions, and then check them out 9 years later. Well, that's what we've done. So why exactly am I supposed to have confidence in the latest "scientific" predictions?

Groundhog Day - a long cold hard winter.
