Told you so

I wonder if the AGW crowd will still be trying to punish us all with their visions of doom and eco-guilt when it starts to get really cold. All through the media, we are being told that the temperature is going up, Polar Bears are falling through the ice and WE'RE ALL DOOMED!

Then why is it so cold, with global average temperature (Satellite measurement) down? This is official. Also official is the increase in Antarctica's ice sheet, snow in the Mediterranean, Middle East and China. I quote from Christopher Bookers column in England's Daily Telegraph;
"Temperatures were lower than their 20th century average for the first time since 1982. Snow cover in the northern hemisphere was at its greatest extent since 1966. At the other end of the world, Antarctic ice-cover was at its most extensive since satellite records began in 1979, 30 per cent above the January average"

As I reported in December, Vancouver Island is suffering more snow than in the past twenty years, and Winter still has a couple of months before it's really over. Funnily enough, this goes completely against the AGW dogma that is still being peddled as fact, and fits in with a Solar sunspot minimum. As I have written before, 'Climate change' is a political phenomenon, not an actual phenomenon.

To quote the last lines of 'Bagpipe Music' by Louis MacNiece;
"The glass is falling hour by hour, the glass will fall forever,
But if you break the bloody glass, You won't hold up the weather."
