Doublethink - Cold Winters Caused By Global Warming

Orwellian Doublethink is alive and well today with the latest "research" saying cold winters "may" be caused by global warming just as Europe gets set for another horrific winter and on the eve of the  Cancun chatterfest designed to separate gullible politicians from their taxpayer's money. Shortly the sky will be full of carbon-spewing aircraft with their precious cargo of bureacratic fat-cats snug in their first-class cocoons, all headed to Cancun to decide how to control the lifestyle of the their less fortunate proles!

Climate change could lead to colder winters in northern regions, according to a study by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research on Tuesday.
Vladimir Petoukhov, lead author of the study, said a shrinking of sea ice in the eastern Arctic causes some regional warming of lower air levels and may lead to anomalies in atmospheric airstreams, triggering an overall cooling of the northern continents.
"These anomalies could triple the probability of cold winter extremes in Europe and northern Asia," he said. "Recent severe winters like last year's or the one of 2005/06 do not conflict with the global warming picture but rather supplement it."
Petoukhov, whose study is entitled "A link between reduced Barents-Kara sea ice and cold winter extremes over northern continents", said in a statement a warming of the air over the Barents-Kara Sea appeared to bring cold winter winds to Europe.
"This is not what one would expect," Petoukhov said. "Whoever thinks that the shrinking of some far away sea ice won't bother him could be wrong."

A lot of pseudo-scientific claptrap designed to convince Europeans and Americans freezing their bollocks off that Global Warming is to blame. Note all the weasel words such as could,may,appeared to , making this study a transparent attempt to fit extreme winters to a failing global warming theory. 


  1. Actually, they are right- NATURAL climate change will cause colder winters.

    They just don't want people to realize climate is cyclic.

  2. Global warming has a distinct appearance of the winter in North America. The winters are milder and shorter and shorter spring is on average 10 to 14 days earlier than it did 20 years ago.

  3. Easy to check North America - winters have been longer and colder.

  4. Some say that the process of global warming has stopped and even regressed with the world on the brink of a little ice age.
