‘Children Aren’t Going to Know What Snow Is’: A Global Warming Classic Flashback

Ed Driscoll features this gem of a global warming story from March of 2000 that appeared in The Independent:


Among the horrors the “settled science” declared imminent was the disappearance of snow:

Global warming, the heating of the atmosphere by increased amounts of industrial gases, is now accepted as a reality by the international community. Average temperatures in Britain were nearly 0.6°C higher in the Nineties than in 1960-90, and it is estimated that they will increase by 0.2C every decade over the coming century. Eight of the 10 hottest years on record occurred in the Nineties.

However, the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. 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.

Fast forward the scare tactics just over ten years and glance at today’s headlines:


Al Gore’s globull warming SWAT team must have gotten wind that this decade-old story had been unearthed and is making the rounds, because here’s a return salvo via a headline in today’s Telegraph:


Maybe at some point an enterprising reporter will ask one of these “scientists” what would be an indication that there’s not man-made global warming. I mean, if everything is a symptom of global warming, it’ll be kind of hard to tell when we’ve fixed the problem, won’t it?
