UK enjoys the extremes of global warming

Global Warming is kicking the UK in the shins with temperatures lower than the Antarctic and Alaska.

  • Man died after his Land Rover Defender skidded off road and crashed into tree near Horam, East Sussex
  • Temperatures dropped to -8.8C overnight in Northern Ireland as Britain suffered its coldest night of the year
  • This compares to -8C in Alaska and -5C at the Antarctica Belgrano II research centre – 800 miles from South Pole
  • A severe weather warning has been issued as forecasters predict a sheet of ice will blanket the country
  • Met Office issued ice warning for Yorkshire and Humber, East Midlands and East of England yesterday morning
  • Comes after a sudden dump of snow over Christmas hindered motorists and wreaked travel chaos across the UK
  • Thousands of homes were left without electricity and scores forced to abandon their cars as a result of the weather
  • No more snow is likely to fall this week with conditions set to stay dry, cold and windy throughout the country
  • New Year’s Eve will bring wet and windy weather, with heavy downpour expected in some parts of the north

Man, that global warming is nasty.

The fountain in Trafalgar Square iced over near boiling point.

One thing Global Warming does produce is some great photographs:

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
