The scientific consensus is that humans are contributing to the greenhouse effect, leading to global warming. When you speak to elderly people they often comment that the seasons are different to when they were younger, particularly when it comes to snow. One of the predictions over the coming decade is that snow will become less frequent in the British Isles; we are expecting milder winters.

It doesn’t matter how many predictions they got wrong in the past, some Russian guy wrote a paper last year that was kind of right and redeemed the whole enterprise.
Now hand over your wallet to Al Gore.
Japanese Meteorological Agency. Looks like 2010 is going to turn out to be 2nd warmest year on record:
It is so freakin hot out there.
The warmest year Evaahh! means we all get to freeze our tails off. Color me unimpressed.
so what they are saying is that it’s getting cooler……
2010 is obviously cooler than 1998
Their estimate does not incorporate December yet.
I’m starting to see why they makes predictions for a hundred or two hundred years from now… so that they won’t be there when they get proved wrong.
I’m glad it isn’t me that has to shovel all that global warming off of that car.

Come out, come out, wherever you are Tony Duncan.
2006, that’s about when harsher winters began. The Met Effect?
Global warming causes less snow, global warming causes more snow. Whatever!
Exactly what part of “less frequent” means “never.” Please, do tell.
Exactly what part of less frequent means “much more common?”
