Twelve years ago, leading Met Office climate scientists explained that this is just a virtual cold.

Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past

20 MARCH 2000

David Parker, at the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research in Berkshire, says ultimately, British children could have only virtual experience of snow. Via the internet, they might wonder at polar scenes – or eventually “feel” virtual cold.

    The meltdown that our children face is not “virtual”, is not related to climate, and will most definitely reduce their standard of living.

    Could be some ‘cold’ reality for the children to learn that they have been lied to all their lives about the planet heating up, only to figure out that its stupid cold….oh and 1 hurricane is not climate!

    The mountains that I live beside have been Ice capped on and off for the past week!

    Has there been any virtual snow to go along with the virtual cold? Sorry, my mistake. Leading climate experts now tell us that it’s warmth, not cold brings more snow.

  6. Stephen Richards says:

    I thought it was viner that said ” in ten years children won’t know what snow looks like “. Parker must have followed up with this crap.

    A headline from today’s Daily Telegraph : “Snow across Britain brings early start of ski season”
    and from the article itself : “Cairngorm, recently ranked 15th in a list of best-value ski resorts in Europe, is opening to skiers and snowboarders ten days earlier than last year, while the Lecht is opening for business nine days earlier, raising hopes of a good season.”

      The BBC on it’s rolling news channel this morning put out a spoiler through clenched teeth by drawing attention to a snow blowing machine that is being trialled at Aviemore to “fill in the the gaps”.
      Another gambit was the ” man on the slopes” who opined that last season was not as good as previous seasons – this despite the fact that the resort was regularly closed through the considerably lower access road being blocked by drifting snow and some of the actual runs also often closed due to avalanche danger!
