Credible Climate Science Is Now A Thing Of The Past

Fifteen years ago, Britain’s top climate scientists announced the end of snow.

According to 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.

Today they have a different story.

Since the original forecast was made 15 years ago, Northern Hemisphere winter snow extent has rapidly increased to record levels.

    The term “mass hysteria” comes to mind. They have worked themselves up to a frenzied pitch. Logic and common sense are out the window in the field of climatology.

    Children certainly don’t know what science is. And some of them are now legally adults.

    I wonder how Scotland’s ~ 200 neo-glaciers are doing?

    After all if the world temperature fell from 62.45F in 1997 to 58.24F in 2014 the earth is well on its way to the next glaciation. snicker…

    As soon as the Islamic State is established in Britain, climate change will no longer be a topic of interest, as everyone will just be trying to keep their heads.

    “Calling Dr. Viner…”

  6. Gail Combs says:

    Heck Wunderground can not even predict the high temperature for the day. The nice sunny 70° F | 44° F has barely reached 64° F @ 1:20 PM and they have just down graded the predicted high to 69° F.

    I am turning the space heater back on before my toes and fingers get frostbite… Grumble…

      Lead author Erich Fischer, a climate scientist at ETH Zurich, a Swiss university, and colleague Reto Knutti examined just the hottest of hot days, the hottest one-tenth of one percent. Using 25 different computer models. Fischer and Knutti simulated a world without human-caused greenhouse gas emissions and found those hot days happened once every three years.


      How to Deal with a Dead Horse

      -Buy a heavier whip
      -Change riders
      -Threaten the horse with termination
      -Appoint a committee to study the horse
      -Arrange to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses
      -Appoint a project team to re-animate the dead horse
      -Create training to increase the rider’s load share
      -Change the form to read: “This horse is not dead.”
      -Hire outside contractors to ride the dead horse
      Harness several dead horses together for increased speed
      -Increase funding to help the horses performance
      -Do a time management study to see if lighter riders would improve productivity
      -Purchase an after-market product to make dead horses run faster
      -Declare that a dead horse has lower overhead and therefore performs better
      -Form a quality focus group to find profitable uses for dead horses
      -Rewrite the performance requirements for horses
      -Hire a consulting firm to perform a strategic study of best practices in continuous improvement in utilizing dead horses
      -Promote the dead horse to supervisory position

      I am wordless faced with this masterpiece of arithmetics. Dunning-Kruger by the author.

    • Doug says:

      Why couldn’t they just look at the temperature record and show how many more hot days we have now than, say, 80 years ago. That would clearly show that AGW…

      …oh. Never mind.

  7. I wonder if anyone has called Dr. David Viner to ask him how his prediction has turned out… ???

    Seems nobody is ever held accountable for the spread of FEAR and Hysteria
    .. think I’ll track this guy down and email him… see if he responds like Gavin did…

  8. janets says:

    It’s snowing in the Scottish Borders at the moment, I’m standing in my kitchen waiting for my tea to cook and watching the hills go progressively whiter 😦

  9. David Viner needs to take a peek the f#÷k out the window….

    It’s snowing again David!!…

    Pull yourself off the computer screen for a second …. off the bogus computer model and look f’ing outside dude…quit scaring the children…

  10. smamarver says:

    I agree to your point, but I would also add that scientists are not only open to criticism, but also to funds. If you want them to prove something, even if those things don’t really exist, just give them funds, and you would be surprised about what they could prove. No, I don’t want to say that all of them are like that, but, unfortunately, there are many “dirty” scientists. Otherwise, why didn’t they pay real attention to the climate and how come they ignore, among other things, discussing oceans, when you cannot talk about climate without referring to the oceans?

  11. Most likely …..

    Emailing him NOW… lets see what happens… “Hey David.. I’m drowning in a most unexpected snowfall over here… and my children sure as hell DO know what snow is all about… I was reading your yr 2000 prediction about a snowless UK and wondering how you could have been so wrong?? What went wrong with your prediction and what are your thoughts now about Climate Change… if there is any.. and future snow?”…

    • Hugh says:

      Please don’t mail him – hate mail just offers him an opportunity to be a victim.

      • PeterK says:

        Why not? I did. These guys need to be ridiculed forever when you consider the overall harm this BS science has done.

      • gator69 says:

        Who said hate mail? Do you hate your kids when you correct them? Shame can be a powerful tool, and the worst/best thing my parents could do to correct my behavior, was to make me ashamed of it.

        • Andy DC says:

          When people correctly point out they are wrong, the alarmists consider that hate speech and something that needs to be banished immediately!

        • gator69 says:

          Yes, you are right. When I was a small and petulant child, I thought my parents hated me too. 😆

    • Disillusioned says:

      Phillippe, please post it if he responds.

      Hugh, I think you have that backwards. People like him are the perps. With their junk science propaganda they create victims. They need to be exposed, and held accountable for the things they say. Until this scam ends.

      That is why I like this website so much; Tony/Steve doesn’t give them a break.

      • Gail Combs says:


        They do not deserve a break. They are without honor. They knowingly lie and have the blood of inocents on their hands.

  12. SMS says:

    Considering that we are at a temperature high for the 70 year PDO/AMO cycle, we can only expect more snow for the next 35+ years to come. I do not think Dr. Viner was aware of the cycles that mother Earth moves through on her trip through the cosmos. We still have the 1500 year cycle to contend with and following that, another ice age.

    It seems that some people can’t see the forest for the trees.

    By the time we do get to another ice age, the temperature record will be so polluted with positive corrections that we’ll put on our T-shirts and shorts in preparation.

    • Disillusioned says:


      Natural cycles dominate. The AMO maximum may be with us for another decade. Perhaps super-quiet sun could shorten it.

      When we get past these dark ages, scientists in the future will agree that CO2 forcing is so low, the anthropogenic portion of it is inconsequential and well-hidden in the noise. They’ll shake their heads about this CO2 hysteria of the early 21st century, this insane, noxious fog of propaganda in which we’re living today.

      Today’s skeptical community will some day be looked back on as the heroes who got it right and didn’t go along with the idiotic AGW hyped-pothesis. What is so insane is that they ALL should be skeptics today, because NONE of the data support what they’re pushing as settled science.

      There is none so blind as he who refuses to see.

  13. Honest government-funded science is a thing of the past.

    first year I can remember where, in maine, had flurries on my b-day (4-24) and so far every morning still running around 32-35 deg F.

  15. Menicholas says:

    Anybody have a link to information documenting the $29 billion spent on climate research in the US?
    I do not doubt it, but some do…need proof to shut them up.

  16. IbSnooker says:

    Oh, but this snow is weather, not climate. See how that works?

  17. Menicholas says:

    I think it may not be long before we have a definitive answer to the question of solar influence and variability.
    Or, at the very least, some much needed hard evidence, one way or the other.
