Global warming.


Hello?

Bueller? Bueller?
it has long been argued that as a result of global warming the gulf stream would reduce its influence over western europe thereby ironically leading to colder winters in europe

This article doesn't even say who's making the 1000 year claim! Vadim Zavodchenkov is quoted but he makes no quote that supports such a thing. The Gulf Stream is mentioned but again without reference to who made these measurements or where they were published.

So global warming will lead to an ice age.

M'kay. Totally clear now.

This should rattle a few cages. I can hear the violent crass clicking of keyboard buttons as we speak.

Boy if only there was some way to understand that the planet could warm overall while particular regions experience a range of different effects including localised cooling. That's just far too complicated though.

It's long been argued that if it is hot it is dangerous and man's fault, if it is cold it is dangerous and it is man's fault, if it rains too much it is dangerous and it is man's fault, if it rains too little it is dangerous and it is man's fault, etc. ad nauseum.

The alarmist Warmy Hypothesis is the ultimate unfalsifiable hypothesis. You name it and it is still exactly what the hypothesis would predict.

The mind boggles at how many people are so devoid of the logical capacity to even stop and think about the absudity of it all.

If it turns out to be true, we'll be told it's all down to global warming..or is it climate change now?
And when it turns out to not be the coldest winter in a squillion years, we'll be told it's because of global warming/climate change.
And if it turns out to be an average winter, we'll all be told it's because of climate change.

No matter what happens.....it's all global warming's fault.
That's why we're in a recession don't you know! The good thing though, climate change will get us out of the recession.

ha ha ha
the reason they now call it 'climate change' is because the 'global warming' theory/scam is shown to be false when the world is NOT getting warmer

There are reports that the Gulf Steam is shutting down because of the Gulf oil disaster. If that's true get out the winter woolies!

should the govt be preparing for this now ?

Coldest winter in 1,000 years on its way - RT

This ties in with numerous reports of a very negative NAO which is known to tie in with cold winters in western europe
Europe has had plenty of prolonged Cold Spells over the centuries far worse than anything we here have experienced in living memory.

So a very cold winter every so often is still a different kettle of fish from other times when it was the norm.

That being said after last Winter its quite possible we will get a run of them now.

If the Gulf Stream fizzled out then we might as well man the kayaks and head south:eek:

I hear Nigeria is nice at this time of year!:D

Dont worry lads, the boys in Anglo and the Dail will not go cold, you can be sure that regardelss of how hard you get hit in the busget Cowen and Co will have very warm tootsies this winter along with non frozen running water and lots of coal for the fire.

Arent ye glad the Greens put up the cost of electricity just in time for the big freeze!

We could always do this,
