WHY WINTER NO LONGER EXISTS
by Polly Buchanan Feb 8th, 2008
....in 2009 global warming alarmists hadn't thought up a way to blame global warming yet. However, George Monbiot believes he has it figured out, which means that blaming individual weather events is back en vogue....Monbiot tells us that "there is now strong evidence to suggest that the unusually cold winters of the last two years in the UK are the result of heating elsewhere." That's right! It's very cold because it's very hot somewhere else.
Some scientists do not agree with this:-
Dr Roger Pielke Sr:
This failure to skillfully predict any of the extreme weather patterns we have seen in the past should be a wake-up call to policymakers and the public that the climate science community is overselling the prediction skill that is possible
Unfortunately, they also continue to miss the significance that it is the regional circulations that matter much more, not a global average anomaly, as I discussed on my post
