    Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past March 20, 2000
    Britain's winter ends tomorrow with further indications of a striking environmental change: snow is starting to disappear from our lives.

    Global warming, the heating of the atmosphere by increased amounts of industrial gases, is now accepted as a reality by the international community. Average temperatures in Britain were nearly 0.6°C higher in the Nineties than in 1960-90, and it is estimated that they will increase by 0.2C every decade over the coming century. Eight of the 10 hottest years on record occurred in the Nineties.


    Heavy Snow Causes Disruptions in Britain January 6, 2010
    London, a city known for its low tolerance for snow, was buffeted by an unusually thick snowfall on Wednesday, the heaviest in more than 20 years. The snow and ice shut down railroad services, airports and schools across southern England and brought travel nearly to a halt on major highways.

    As deep as eighteen inches in some areas, the snowfall on Wednesday was the biggest in southern England since 1987. Two of London’s three airports, Gatwick and Luton, shut down entirely, and delays were reported at the largest, Heathrow.

    I just had a scary thought.....Carbon dioxide is one of the things the left blames our global warming climate changing situation on.....people exhale carbon dioxide when they breathe...but plants use this to grow and produce food and in so doing they release oxygen into the air.

    Let's see if Al Gore's new science will push for all humans to cut back on the amount of carbon dioxide each one of us emits during our life time.

    Will this be part of Obama's cap and tax program.Is this part of the death panels in Obama care?

    In their prefect world, they will be able to buy "carbon credits".
    Indeed, the future will be like a new "feudal" state.

    We the people will be living in grass huts or small houses while the politically connected and rich will have their "special Dispensation" to make as much carbon as they want....

    But of course, the bright side- We will all be equal (well some will be more equal than others)

    Didn't you get the memo? Increased temperatures are causing the record cold.
