Ain't That Global Warming A Bitch?

I pity those melting ice caps myself.

No Kidding: Snow on Sunday!

Snow could be coming to town as early as this weekend. That’s right, snow. Flurries and flakes.

The forecast says that Saturday night rain will turn into the white stuff early Sunday morning.

If the snow sticks, it would be the earliest recorded measurable snowfall in Chicago. The record was set just three years ago when it snowed on Oct. 12.

Hey, Chicago. Don't even think about heating yourself with anything more than a candle either ... you know it makes sense.

On the day of our first snow I will drive down to the met office and build a snowman just outside their gates. He will carry a learge banner with the words
"Global Warming Bollox "
( not inside mind because it is " A prohibited place under the purposes of The Act ) and I would be liable to arrest by MOD Police.

Candle? Did you say candle? But what about the smoke and the carbon dioxide from the burning oils?

No no no, they must wrap up warm in layers of organic raffia and eat organic nuts and tofu until Mother Nature basks them in her natural warmth.

As a possible UK yardstick... remember this from last October?

First London snow in more than 70 years, Oct 28th 2008

Sorry - should have read "First October snow in London for 70 years"

A possibly significant move at the BBC...

I almost missed it amongst all the Peace prize nonsense (a good day to bury bad news...) but I think that a year ago such an article would have been unthinkable. Yes, this is old news being wrapped up as an "exciting discovery" that could "revolutionize the whole subject", and yes, it's only one article out of many, and may be a token aberration never to be repeated, but there's been talk of a 'tipping point' for months now. Is this a sign?

Anyway, I think the BBC should be congratulated.

Or, given that the snow is forecast for Chicago, maybe St Obama has managed to work a miracle and stopped Global Warming in its tracks.

There is only one way to stop this nasty Global Warming you know and the answer lies with...well Dick knows it's the children.

During a break in Coronation Street they played this:

More propaganda to beat adults into submission.

Ah but its called Climate change now Dick. Come on keep up.
So, now that the sunspot activity has reduced,and global temperatures start to dip, meaning we freeze in autumn, we still get to persecute people for having their gas fires on.
