If the globe is getting so warm that James Hansen has issued yet another “game-over” warning, then why is Europe’s temperature falling faster than bank accounts in Cyprus?
Weathermen in Great Britain must be be feeling a little nervous when they try to explain why England is bracing for the coldest Easter on record.
It’s colder in England this spring than it has been in half a century as heavy snows clog roads, weigh down power lines and keep the schools from opening.
Britain is braced for the coldest Easter on record with the bitter Arctic blast showing no signs of easing. Another week of freezing temperatures, gales and snow is forecast as the UK shivers in the chilliest spring for 50 years. Heavy snow showers and strong winds have swept through the country causing mayhem on the roads, closing schools and downing power lines according to The Daily Express.
Christopher Booker of The Sunday Telegraph learned that the nation had enough natural gas in storage to heat the country for two days and that one of the largest electricity companies was warning that power cuts could begin at any time.
“It seems the perfect storm is upon us,” Booker wrote. “The grotesque mishandling of Britain’s energy policy by the politicians of all parties, as they chase their childish chimeras of CO2-induced global warming and windmills, has been arguably the greatest act of political irresponsibility in our history.”
It’s cold comfort indeed that it’s taken this long for Europeans to figure out that global warming is so much claptrap, but if the people who brought us the Stamp Act, haggis and boiled beef can figure it out, then there might yet be hope.
