Green and pleasant land?


This is a satellite image of the UK today, borrowed from an article in the Daily Mail. Even the Mail can't sensationalise this. False colour image perhaps? Well southern Ireland looks the right colour to me. No, it's not rigged. The UK is covered in snow from end to end and there's more on the way.

I would be fascinated to hear how the Green God's acolytes explain this in terms of global warming. I would also be fascinated to hear from anyone who knows of a link to a current picture of the Arctic ice cap and the sea routes around it. You know, the ice cap that's melting because of 4x4's and tumble driers and the sea routes you can apparently now travel in a pedalo. Not the ice cap that's currently growing past your front door. That's not real. The Warmers say so.

Dai Cameroid says he wants to make Britain 'green'. He'll have to thaw it out first.

A quick note to the panic buyers also. Bread is the wrong carbohydrate source to stock up on. It doesn't keep and it's too bulky to store it frozen. Stock up with pasta which is much easier to store and which won't leave you looking like a right drip if this lot manages to thaw before February. Your frozen bread stock will also prove useless if the power to your freezer goes off. Never mind the old 'there's plenty of gas' story. Maybe there is. Maybe the power stations won't close down even though the Greens have been trying hard to sabotage them (no, green folk, we have not forgotten).

Look at the snow and ice building up on the power lines. That's where the problems will be, not at the power stations. Dried food is much easier to store and is not affected by loss of power.

There's more winter to come yet. Before it ends, I'd love to hear from anyone who can look at that picture and say 'Yes, global warming is really happening, and Britain will never see snow again'.

Go on, Greenies. You've been saying it for years. Say it now.

It is cheering to see that wind is presently producing 0.1% of UK electricity.

Somebody going to tell the greenies?

It doesn't matter what the weather is doing, you could have icicles hanging from your nose the scammers and their useful idiots will say that it's indicitive of "climate disruption". Thats one of the latest buzz terms.

"...........how the(y) ......... explain this in terms of global warming."

Simples.

Without Global Warming it would be even more severe.

Went for my usual liquid lunch break at 1pm. Place was full of dossers pissed off their faces on monies from the "Cold Weather" payment DSS.

Ended up freezing my knackers off wondering the streets for an hour before getting back to the shite.

Marvellous country this...

The AGW like to imply that dissidents deny climate change. As far as I know no one disputes climate change its been happening for about 4.5 billion years.Whats in dispute is the man made contribution to it. Just follow the money. Also check out some of Lord Monkton's videos on youtube. He keeps challenging Al Gore to a public debate but it seems Gore is unable to fit a debate with him into his schedule.

Scan said...

OH you know the eco-mentalists will merely claim "weather and climate are not the same thing."

Bunch o' cunts.

bofl said...

if my memory is correct al gore was portrayed as a thick shit in the early nineties........al jabeeba were really on his case..

now he is a billionaire and a guru......

how?

Arctic sea ice satellite images, pretty extenive although the bit north and west of Svalbard is perhaps a little thin. Check the archive to compare to year's past.

"who knows of a link to a current picture of the Arctic ice cap"

If you gave me the courtesy of a visit and click on the globe widget, BINGO!

Vladimir said...

Scan is quite right, that is their answer. Climate isn't weather. Man-made climate change is non-falsifiable, like Creationism, so there is no evidence to disprove it and there never can be.

The sandallists also say "why wouldn't reducing CO2 and pollution be a good thing" when backed into a corner. That is, science and truth don't actually matter in the service of what they want.

I wish I had the guts to put up a sign at work saying "Britain will never see snow again", but I'm surrounded by people who wouldn't appreciate such heresy.

If this climate scam falls flat, they'll just think up some other form of robbery to con us with. Basically, everything they claim we have to stump up for is a con trick. Depend upon it. Lies, lies and more lies.

We had snow on Sunday and none since then.
What did arrive, 1/2-1 inch depending on the altitude of the streets, has now been a melted by the sun, melted by over zealous spreading of rock salt by the County Council which has now run out of rock salt so is resorting to, spreading 'sea washed pebbles', and sadly I am not kidding, because the council followed government/met office AGW lies and had run down its rock salt store, wait for it... to save money!
Where there has been no sun or now rock salt spreading there is now just ice. It isn't white!

I've just been looking at WUWT and found some links.

This is the NSIDC press page:
http://nsidc.org/news/press/20091005_minimumpr.html - which runs the usual "sea ice is declining" story.

Then check out this post at WUWT:
http://wattsupwiththat.com/2009/09/17/nsidc-still-pushing-ice-free-arctic-summers/#more-10921 - and read some of the comments. These point out that the satellite data only goes back 30 years, and there is very little information before that. So natural variability could easily explain it.

This animation shows the yearly change, and the passage opening up:

I'm loving my log burner and big pile of logs right now. If someone turns off the gas (Vladimir Putin must be eyeing us up right about now) then I'll be just as warm and toasty as I am now. I can even cook on it, and it heats my water too. Get off grid people, you know it makes sense!

Anonymous said...

Run your lap top off yer burner whilst you're at it.

Actually I have one, they're the bollox. I also have a sine-wave genny that'll give me 3kw.

Back to topic, some MMGW apologist twat denied it all in the paper the other morning. They switch their lies to suit.

Now then, where would they have got an idea like that?

hourzoo said...

Uncle Vladimir freezes the Bosch if he turns the gas off. Ours in our own, and Norway's, and Qatar's. But those guys in the privatised gas companies will no doubt in a show of pan European solidarity, flog our stuff off to the Bosch at higher prices than we can afford if Vlad does flex his muscles.

I wonder if Canadians are as pissed off as us?

J Demetriou said...

The Independent newspaper argued just that, Holby. That paper and its climate change zealot pals are certain that, despite the big freeze, global warming is very, very real a threat.

I'm yet to be convinced.

Wearily hauls on his anorak and lets all you woodburner folk know that combusting tree corpses isn't incompatible with running your broaband /laptop.

Roy G Davis said...

Apparently, it's still MMGW. The cold spell is simply explained as an "extreme" winter. Oh, and when the Sun returns later in the year - that's "extreme" too. Perhaps the Sun Gods are angry that no-one has been praying to them for some time.

Wrinkled Weasel said...

My log man is lives in the hills and is snowed in! In reply to my question as to when he could deliver some logs, he said, "It's difficult, it's seasonal"

Hardly wartime spirit, but that's the tradesmen class for you.

pitigar said...

Roy G Davis,

Colder = AGW, Warmer = AGW.
More varialble = AGW, Less variable = AGW.
More ice = AGW, Less ice = AGW.
More desert = AGW, Less desert = AGW.

If whatever happens always gets ascribed to man the theory of AGW is non-falsifiable, and therefore not science at all.

My grandma used to keep an emergency stash for this sort of occasion - baked beans, pilchards, oxtail soup, chocolate biscuits, cocoa, condensed milk. It wasn't very nice, but if you're hungry you'll eat anything.

Mr A said...

Well, all of this has certainly enforced my belief in God.

Only three months ago it all seemed hopeless - lies foisted on us every day. The truth easy to find but ignored by media, politicians, seemingly everyone. There seemed no way out - they'd stitched us all up good and proper.

Then came the CRU emails, ripping a hole in the entire thing just before the fiasco at Copenahegen showed them all up for what they were. But it still wasn't quite enough.... Ah, but then we get the coldest winter in years so we have a break from their incessant brainwashing and their every argument is made to look utterly foolish and so the whole thing starts to collapse.

Yes, the last few months have proved one thing. There really is a God.

You fool, that's not climate, it's just weather.

Feeling pretty smug right now ! - saw the forecast of a 'balmy' winter and immediately ordered 2 "favn" (2 'cords') of firewood in late November ...

I'm Scottish, living and working in Norway - 2 wood-burning stoves in my house (in addition to the electrical heating) and a portable generator and lots of petrol stored in my Garage ! ...
