#1
Looking out the window at a foot of snow, thinking, terrible thing this global warming.

Aint seen al gore-blimey on telly frightening the kiddies much the last few days.

What a con!

Please find below an extract from today's Australian newspaper. When you've read it, perhaps -- and I admit this is a grossly optimistic assumption -- you may come to realise the world is bigger than your backyard. A concept I candidly admit seems impossible to put over to most Britons. Still, we can but try:-

"WINTER warmth and February and November heatwaves bumped up temperatures across Australia last year, giving the country its second-warmest year in a century of record-keeping.

The Bureau of Meteorology's annual climate statement, released yesterday, shows the mean temperature for the year, 22.7C, was 0.9C above the base 1961-90 average.

The average maximum across the country was 29.64C (1.04C above the base average) and the average minimum was 15.86C (0.76C above the base average).

The hottest year was 2005.

National Climate Centre senior climatologist Dean Collins said the heatwaves were remarkable for the number of records broken and their intensity and duration.

"Having three in a year is clearly a sign there is something going on," Mr Collins said.

The bureau said the year closed off Australia's warmest decade on record. "In Australia, each decade since the 1940s has been warmer than the preceding decade," it said."

Right, so you've got global warming and we've got global freezing. And the reason must be obvious - Oz needs to cut down on its bush fires and plant more trees, UK needs to return to coal fires, rebuild its steel industry and promote an increase in its carbon emissions by reducing the tax levy on petrol and diesel.

Gets my vote. Putteesinmyhands for PM!

Well... the UK Met Office is predicting that the Summer of 2010 will be one of the hottest on record... a bit like 1976...... Any takers..... Wellies... or Bar-Bequeus.... :?

You mean like the "BBQ summer" we would have in 2009? Summer was on a tuesday I think last year between 13:00 and 13:25.

Apparently it was -10 in parts of Farnborough last night. Bloody glad I wasnt there!

Some random bloke from the Met Office on the telly this am.It seems you have to see the "big picture",and that the last decade was the warmest on record.
It also seems that accurate long range weather forecasts,are along way away.

Sorry mate, but "my place gets hotter and it's global warming, and your place gets colder, and it's climate change" isn't a convincing argument.

It's worth noting that climate change doesn't necessarily mean 'everything gets hotter, everywhere'. It really means 'everything gets more extreme'. So we have enormous hurricanes in the US, desertification in Africa and Australia, stupidly hot summers and freezing winters in the temperate zone that the UK is in and rising sea levels from melting artic and antarctic ice.

So, the snow outside your window doesn't really mean anything, in the grand scheme of things.

However the ice levels have actually increased the last 2 years...

Do not question the myth of 'Man Made Global Warming'… all you have to do is believe!

Americas always had enormous hurricanes… and last year was a very mild hurricane seasan.

I'm looking forward to the time when I can gloat "See, I told you climate change was a load of b*llocks". That time will come, I just hope it is sooner rather than later.

I will then be asking for all the bullsh*t "climate change" taxation back...

According to some scientists, the paradox is that 'global warming' is making the earth colder, apparently. So now they refer to 'climate change'. Probably because we all saw through the b0ll0x. Man's impact on the environment is negligible, but nature is taking it's course and the environment is changing as it does every 10,000 years-regardless of our intervention. It's just a way to feed paranoia in order to generate revenue from taxation before the coming ice-age. It's a global goverment scam. And, yes, my tin-foil hat is on.

So now they refer to 'climate change'.
Because they realised that the kind of imbecile who doesn't realise climate isn't the same thing as weather also doesn't realise that global warming isn't the same as 'warmer round my gaff'.

We're on the same latitudes as Kiev, Copenhagen, Nova Scotia and a whole host of countries that are not exactly famed for moderate temperate climates, yet their sort of winter weather is pretty unusual in Britain.

We were protected from that kind of extreme cold weather because, unlike Kiev, Copenhagen and Nova Scotia, we have the Gulf Stream to keep us warm. That's changing path. Because the globe is warming up and changing the circulation patterns. Which means it's not protecting us from the natural cold. Therefore we get colder. Because of global warming.

But far better to have a rant about lefties and a great big conspiracy to stop us using our motors. After all, if it's convenient for us to do something then it must be a good thing, mustn't it?

I can't help feeling that the term 'Global warming' implies that the whole world/globe, if you will is getting warmer, maybe not by equal amounts but it must be 'global' if some parts are getting colder and othewr parts are getting warmer it is not global its local?
