Virtual Snow

Dr David Viner

Sledges, snowmen, snowballs and the excitement of waking to find that the stuff has settled outside are all a rapidly diminishing part of Britain’s culture, as warmer winters – which scientists are attributing to global climate change – produce not only fewer white Christmases, but fewer white Januaries and Februaries.

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.

Professor Jarich Oosten, an anthropologist at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands, says that even if we no longer see snow, it will remain culturally important.

“We don’t really have wolves in Europe any more, but they are still an important part of our culture and everyone knows what they look like,” he said.

David Parker, at the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research in Berkshire, says ultimately, British children could have only virtual experience of snow. Via the internet, they might wonder at polar scenes – or eventually “feel” virtual cold.

Hat tip to EU referendum

UPDATE: Ah, here's the man himself. Now a spokesman for the British Council. He just can't stay away from children it seems.

For those of us who donated merrily to save snow leapords and polar bears and never thought for a moment that somthing as enournmousley important as the CRP , would do somthing as wrong as deleting the origional data leaving only the modded data (no serious science group ever does that it all has to be for peer review raw data and all), all I can say is that I feel gutted.

worst bit was millibands de brief back in london , vid link showing ruin making even more unreasoned statements . questions section was farce , I mean he cant even answer key fact questions .Simply wasnt good enough to waffle on about agreements .

agreements for what ?? But then again I realised before copehagnen that , the wrong questions were being asked .

its an eco question and not a CO2 one , absolute disgrace how it got manipulated into carbon trade tax scenario .

As I have said before , large parts of vibrant nature , unmolested by human design , are needed to support the current population , nature has to do its thing, for us to do ours . Thats whats so annoying if they had agreed to clean up rivers , work to lower world population and re forest what had been cut down since 1990 it would be job done .

In parts of London youngsters will never see a white kid.
They will only be able to imagine what is was like to nick his dinner money and get jiggy with his sister.
Honkys will still be thought of like a big bad wolf though.

How about 'virtual scientists'? A lot cheaper than the current bunch of lying cunts at CRU & thereabouts & they could be 'terminated with extreme prejudice' if they started massaging the results - which might bring some words of mild disapproval if we did it to the CRU lot.

Rogerborg said...

It's always "within a few years" with ecomental cultists, isn't it?

You'll want to Google this 'Dr' David Viner and marvel at the career path of a professional parasite.

As well as leeching from the CRU scam-farm, he's also buried into the bowels of the "British Council", a leading Post Colonial Guilt quango ironically dedicated to destroying British culture in favour of some multi-hued panda-shagging globalisation clap-trap.

For a laugh though, check out his award for "Post-science Personality of the Year 2001". I think it sums him up nicely.

Cameron's a cunt too

DZ said...

Someone just explain to me in a straightforward way why the British Council needs ANYONE to be "actively involved in a range of climate change science, impact, adaptation and mitigation research projects". When did the British Council start doing research?

Don't we have enough unemployable "scientists" already?

Ohhh ........ right. Got it.

I watched that film Kung Fu Panda the other day and was shocked to discover that it actively promotes the slaughter of snow leopards!

"focusing mainly on the younger generations, from schoolchildren to people in their 30s. These are the generations with the most at stake"
Focusing on those most easy to manipulate and with no memories that we've seen it all before, cunts.

Met Office still clinging to their prediction of a 'mild winter' despite todays Telegraph reporting

"Threat to power and transport as snow returns.
Heavy snow has begun to fall in parts of Britain as the Met Office issued several severe weather warnings."

"Meanwhile sales of salt have soared by up to 400 per cent in supermarkets as customers stock up to clear slippery paths and roads. There has been criticism in some areas that the authorities have not cleared pavements quickly enough."
Which is a bit bollox really since councils don't generally do pavements. I have this from the woman at County Highways who sends out the gritters.

Rogerborg said...

Latest legal advice is to not attempt to clear pavements, since you're only making yourself liable by accepting responsibility for doing so.

Yes, it's got that bad.

Rightwinggit said...

Rogerborg;

That one has been about for a while..I heard about it well over 10 years ago.

AngryDave said...

We have already had snow twice this year!
The havoc it causes, and the bullshitting lazy councils mean it is more of a hassle than exciting.

Chalcedon said...

Let's see. Last February the M11 was shut owing to feet of snow and lots of motorists were stranded. This december, similar problems on the M1 and lots of the usual problems in the North of England and Scotland. There are still vestages of ice in our close in a Cambridgshire village. This guy forgets we are a Northern European country. If not for the gulf stream we would be like Norway. e always get snow! It is rarely at Christmas because we use the Gregorian calendar. In Julian calendar times it was much more frequent.

McEgan you scruffy tosser just like your deadbeat old man. At least your mother served some useful purpose keeping shiploads of sailors from rogering themselves silly ashore. Fucking hell could she multi-task and your old man blew most of it on the ponies.
No wonder you turned out a useless piece of shite.

Munchhausen=Martin! said...

Martin you ought to calm down. Do you do anything except troll? No. Are you even any good at trolling? No. take up writing? no you can merely lie, spew forth gay porn and obviously have a proble, jealousy or De Clerambaults?
