Cold is Warm Explained

Holiestofcows | Environment | guardian.co.uk

Working on an Environmental Science journal, I’ve come to the conclusion that most climate scepticism can’t just be ignorance. I do get the feeling it’s more the result of intense lobbying by companies who rely on a relaxed carbon legislation.
By that I mean, the tories are in truth funded by big business. Big business lose a lot of money adhering to low carbon technology, so I’m assuming they expect politicians of the party they’re funding to fight their corner.
I’m not saying there aren’t hugely ignorant people. But the ignorant people are generally led a merry dance by those who should know better.

Most of the planet is covered by ocean. If the planet is hotter, in general, less of the ocean freezes during winters, and more of it evaporates. This creates more humidity. And when humidity is met by Syberian weather fronts, it freezes, and creates abnormally cold periods. Meaning, the UK, from now on will probably be terribly cold for periods, and rather warm for periods, in the winter months, from now on.
Basically, if you live near a coastline (as in within 500 miles of one), you're going to have very extreme seasons.
If you don't live near a coastline, you'll probably be living in a desert in 200 years time
I hope this clears up a lot of myths on the subject

"Meaning, the UK, from now on will probably be terribly cold for periods, and rather warm for periods, in the winter months, from now on."

Ouch! I just fell off my chair I was laughing so much! That line above is priceless.

And it could save the UK billions in taxes too! Just get rid of the entire Met Office outright and replace all its pointless forecasting and monitoring with the line above scrolling across the bottom of all TV programmes throughout the winter.

Then, in the summer, replace it with:

"THE UK, FROM NOW ON WILL PROBABLY BE VERY WARM FOR PERIODS, AND THEN LESS WARM FOR PERIODS, IN THE SUMMER MONTHS, FROM NOW ON."

Brilliant!

(By the way, "Syberian"? Weren't the Syberians the bad guys in some old Star Trek show or something?)

in the year 2000 ,didn't the UK weather bureau claim snow will become rare due to global warming?

Please tell me he is not a scientist. Looking at the Science GCSE this sort of pseudoscientific dross would get an A*. Really? It will be cold in the Winter and warm in the Summer? Is his Nobel prize in the post?

Sorry. PC had probs with the comments. Apparantly it duplicated the thing. TTFN :)
Mucho Apologia.

Since at least 1995 the Warmist response to anybody opposed to their theory is
(a) that he is in the pay of Big Oil and
(b) this is the same trick the tobacco industry used to deny the link between cancer and smoking.

It is very reminiscent of the way Eurosceptics were marginalised after 1975. They only said the things they did (we were told)
(a) because they hated foreigners and
(b) because they wanted the Empire back but were also "Little Englanders" at the same time.

Obviously this sort of thing works for them or they would not keep doing it,

In fact, international finance, the biggest of big business, would love the enforcement of carbon quotas and carbon trading to force the whole world to pay for a totally fictitious asset every time somebody wanted to make or move anything. It is the first time politicians have been able to sell hot air and compel everyone to pay them for it.

Financiers also love the guaranteed profits of "green" industries, underwritten ultimately by the the threat of state force to compel the use of their products.
