“Ireland records coldest June and July in 50 years”

Global cooling as Ireland records coldest June and July in 50 years
Summer missing in action as cold temperatures dominate
By CATHAL DERVAN, IrishCentral.com Staff Writer

So much for global warming! Ireland’s summer heatwave is still missing in action – and there’s no sign of it turning up anytime soon.

Experts at Met Eireann, the Irish state weather service, have confirmed the country has just experienced the coldest July in 50 years — this after a similar finding for June.

And there’s little sign of August being much better after the month began with widespread rain across the 32 counties.

    Every summer is forecast by the MET to be a BBQ summer and instead it ends up cool and wet.

    “Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.
    “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said. (Mar 2000)

    Should that now read “Children just aren’t going to know what a glorious warm summer is ?”

    Ah well, the Arctic’s beginning to cool down already ! Soon be snow-time !

      No, sadly it should read, “Children, when they grow up, just aren’t going to trust scientists.”

    Seems like the Brits ought to save some of the people’s money by inactivating the Met Office, selling it’s pretty headquarters building and assundry super-dupper computer equipment, and contract with the Irish to give UK forecasts. Save a penny, earn a penny! The Met Office only seems to know how to “spend a penny”.

    I don’t know much about the British, but one would think that they would be making fun of their MET after 3 years of horrible forecasts. Are they?

    That region of the earth has nothing to do with global warming. It is hot in the United States. That is the region of the earth that is pertinent for global warming. The US is proof of global warming. Global warming is happening and man is certainly the cause.

    ;^)

    I’m amused that they had the temerity to use the phrase “global cooling”. Hopefully, it was an ironic touch rather than a memic prion reflective of our times.
