Global warming, the heating of the atmosphere by increased amounts of industrial gases, is now accepted as a reality by the international community.

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.

    Greeting from NSW, Australia 🙂

    No chance of snow down here..

    NICE and WARM !!! Doing it tough 😉 .. day off work tomorrow, just some lecture prep to do.

  4. AndyG55 says:

    Seriously though..

    How the heck do people cope with that sort of snow fall ??

    And some people are scared of a tiny bit of warming… seriously ? !!!!!

    That’s scary. Wake up trapped in your house and hope you didn’t have outer screen doors or day gates that opened out… otherwise they’d have to be turned into kindling.

    Onians and Viner must be sick to the back teeth of being constantly reminded of their article and prediction. Ho ho. Bring it on, again and again and again. 🙂

    If all that white stuff isn’t snow, what is it?

  8. handofgod137 says:

    That town is at an elevation of 1421 metres.

  9. emsnews says:

    The snow storm in Europe has broken the record for the most snowfall in 24 hours.

    Records are being set all over the place this winter. Last summer, nowhere on earth were there any hot records set yet the global warmists announced that was the warmest year evah.

    On a ski trip to Austria, we got nearly that much overnight. We could not open the front door of the hostel, and had to jump out of a second story window with a shovel to dig out the door. By lunch they had the roads clear to the slopes and it was awesome.

  11. stewgreen says:

    Elevation, 1,421 m (4,662 ft) and it’s a ski resort
    so although 2m is impressive I guess if you check the historic weather then you’ll find they normally get a lot of snow.

      “Winter 1956 in Abruzzo” At Capracotta in Molise
      On February 10 – “new, heavy snowfalls … that road snow was over 4 meters (13 ft). But the situation was becoming more dramatic. In the following two nights new, abundant snowfalls blocked almost everything, everywhere.”
      On Sunday, 11 March – “the snow had reached 5 mt (16 ft).”

      • gator69 says:

        Maybe Tony should have included this…

        “In reality, it took only 18 hours. See many, many photos of super-snowfall.

        “It’s official,” says “Capracotta and Pescocostanzo, Italy, are the snowiest places in the world! The data is scary.”

        256cm (8.34 ft) of snow Capracotta (which lies at 1,421 meters in the province of Isernia),

        240cm (7.84 ft) in Pescocostanzo (which lies at 1,395 meters in the province of L’Aquila):

        These are the two new records for snowfall in a span of only 24 hours, that is, in one day, although in reality all this snow fell in about 18 hours on Thursday, March 5, 2015.”

        So yeah, it’s kind of a big deal.

    So where is it? link
    ….is situated in Isernia, Molise, Italy, its geographical coordinates are 41° 50′ 0″ North, 14° 16′ 0″ East and its original name (with diacritics) is Capracotta.

    I thought it would be in the north in the Italian Alps.

    It is a bit south of Rome in the middle of the Italian peninsula.

    They have more snow coming on Thursday.

    I truly admire.

    Man has a way with words. Seriously. I love this!! Keep it up.

      My main worry is that because of the anti-environment propagation of wind turdines and solar cookers….

        Don’t forget THE DEER!

        YUP, Deer!

        Field Cameras Catch Deer Eating Birds—Wait, Why Do Deer Eat Birds?

        …When researchers in North Dakota set up “nest cams” over the nests of song birds, they expected to see a lot of nestlings and eggs get taken by ground squirrels, foxes, and badgers. Squirrels hit thirteen nests, but other meat-eaters made a poor showing. Foxes and weasels only took one nest each. Know what fearsome animal out-did either of those two sleek, resourceful predators?

        White-tailed deer.

        These supposed herbivores placidly ate living nestlings right out of the nest. And if you’re thinking that it must be a mistake, that the deer were chewing their way through some vegetation and happened to get a mouthful of bird, think again. Up in Canada, a group of ornithologists were studying adult birds. In order to examine them closely, the researchers used “mist-nets.” These nets, usually draped between trees, are designed to trap birds or bats gently so they could be collected, studied, and released. When a herd of deer came by, they deer walked up to the struggling birds and ate them alive, right out of the nets.

        This behavior is not limited to one species or one continent. Last year, a farmer in India made a video of a cow eating a recently-hatched chick…..

        I found this comment amusing:

        I spend quite a bit of time on the island of Jura, (which is Diura in Gaelic) the name of which means Island of Deer, so that gives an idea of how many of them there are compared to the people.

        Anyway, one day I was walking toward the Paps (the little mini mountains on the island) and looked up, and all around me, at the top of every ridge, were deer. A ring of them. Just standing, staring at me. Watching me.

        They were quite a bit away, and didn’t come any closer when I was looking at them, but it actually really freaked me out. There was just something seriously creepy in the way they literally had me surrounded in this little valley and were just watching me.

        I have never been so thankful in all my life that I didn’t have the walking stick made of antler with me!

    Just got back from Tonawanda, NY and they have about 3-4 feet of snow cover there. Came down I-190 and the main part of the Niagara was blue and beautiful and ice free. But the branch around Squaw Island that was once a ship channel was frozen solid with snow on it and in a couple places I saw human foot prints in the snow.

    • rah says:

      Going out again. Monroe shocks and struts and brake parts to the Advanced auto parts DC in Kuntztown, PA then pick up in Mechanicsburg, PA to come back. So in and then back out 16 hours later.
