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.

Pete’s relatives were given extra blankets to keep them cool in the stifling global warming heat.

The fountain in Trafalgar Square iced over near boiling point.

One thing Global Warming does produce is some great photographs:

    What lovely global warming, damn shame the retarded and crocked aren’t having one of their yearly junkets in the middle of it.

      They will be in front of their electric heat pumps powered by fossil fuel electricity generation , with the dial turned up to high.

      Don’t they hire ocean liners in the South Pacific?
      Oh..no..wait..that’s our…errr…oh my head!

    Hence the reason the IPCC changed their catch call from ‘global warming’ to ‘climate change’…
    Cause’ funnily enough, the climate, you know, changes.

    Would it surprise anyone that the director of the the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative, the organisation that works on a number of global initiatives to mitigate the effects of climate change, is the ex boss of Sovereign Insurance, Charles Anderson. http://www.unepfi.org/about/structure/secretariat/

      So, he used to bang on about selling insurance, now bangs on about selling climate change. Once a salesman, always a salesman.

      I was actually a pretty good salesman for a time. Retaining profit? Not quite so good.

    Well, we were warned the Himalayas would shortly be snow free, so the stuff has to fall somewhere – why not old Blighty?

    Yes as some other person just said Global Warming is yesterday’s news now it is Climate Change! BUT they don’t say whether or not it is Warming or Cooling. They can have a bob each way then! Just a big money making charade.

  • The Accountant

    But didn’t you know? Global warming is causing these decreased temperatures [extreme sarcasm]. Crikey.

  • Pete

    My home town..covered in global warming, about about 18 hours ago.!

    I guess this means I’m not the only one that didn’t watch the doco on Maori TV last night called “Hot Air” (apt title but I don’t think they meant it the way I am thinking of it) so we could understand how global warming leads to snow and ice (sarcasm). According to the TV guide it was about the politics of climate change in NZ from 1988 to 2009. I read the review and thought, no I’m in a good mood. Don’t need to listen to some idiot tell me we are all going to melt away because we are not paying enough carbon tax. Why get myself all riled up at the stupid box and therefore ditched any idea of maybe taking a gander at the show.

    The CEO of AirAsia has already blamed climate change for his plane crash. Might have been better off keeping his gob shut for now.

    The sad irony of the trolling headline is that extreme weather is predicted from climate change, including the current cold snap. The jet stream moved south to drag polar air down. This has happened once or twice per year for the last several years.
