Warmists Wonder If Global Warming Is Making European Winters Cold
How can you tell this is a cult? Because no matter what happens, globull warming is to blame
Millions of people in northern Europe are still battling snow and ice, wondering why they are being punished with bitter cold when–officially–spring has arrived and Earth is in the grip of global warming.
Yet some scientists, eyeing the fourth year in a row of exceptionally harsh late-winter weather in parts of Europe and North America, suggest warming is precisely the problem. In a complex tango between ocean and atmosphere, warming is causing icy polar air to be displaced southwards, they contend.
This is as stupid as some evangelists blaming Hurricane Katrina and other natural events on God because people are wicked in the areas affected. And just as scientific. Occam’s Razor would say that the most likely explanation would be….it’s getting cold! And that nature does what nature does. Warmists are desperately looking for, and creating, all sorts of fantastical hypotheses in order to continue propping up their dying religion. And boy, do they attempt to create a huge and detailed prognostication where warming because Someone Else drove an SUV is responsible for making it cold and snowy.
But what of Eastern Europe and into the former Soviet republics? They’ve been experiencing the same very cold and snowy winters. And the same in many parts of the Southern Hemisphere, where the Antarctic is now melting. How about Alaska, which has cooled by 2.4F over the past 10 years, and would not be subject to the same forces as Europe? The simplest explanation? Cooling. But that explanation doesn’t bring the government grant money.
BTW, even if the feedback from warming in the Arctic is causing cold Northern European winters, it still wouldn’t prove anthropogenic causation.

That was a headline that ran in England’s Independent newspaper in 2000; this year, snow has been so heavy in England that it’s closed their major airports for long stretches. In early 2010, Time magazine, responding to resurgent snow in America’s capital would take the exact opposite stance: “DC Snowstorm: How Global Warming Makes Blizzards Worse.”
