The cold has reason in a deathly grip.

So says the Moonbat article in the  Guardian as it quotes Warmist "scientists" casting about for something to salvage their faulty theories from the assault of the snow and ice. It could be this and it could be that or it might be something else- all avoiding the obvious which is the whole climate change catastrophe scenario is a load of codswollop !

After consultation with the Goebbels-inspired Climate Change Rapid Response team Moonbat says: Unusually cold winters may make you think scientists have got it all wrong. But the data reveal a chilling truth!
 The "truth" is that the snow and ice "seemed" to be caused by a conveniently available  theory which apparently the warmists knew about ( it is settled science, you know) but forgot and only suddenly remembered when the UK and Europe disappeared under a blanket of snow and ice which seemed to negate all the previous predictions of growing bananas along the Thames.
So why wasn't this predicted by climate scientists? Actually it was, and we missed it. Obsessed by possible changes to ocean circulation (the Gulf Stream grinding to a halt), we overlooked the effects on atmospheric circulation.

I can already hear the howls of execration: now you're claiming that this cooling is the result of warming! Well, yes, it could be. A global warming trend doesn't mean that every region becomes warmer every month. That's what averages are for: they put local events in context. The denial of man-made climate change mutated first into a denial of science in general and then into a denial of basic arithmetic. If it's snowing in Britain, a thousand websites and quite a few newspapers tell us, the planet can't be warming.

Ain't climate science lovely - just when you think your main theory is completely screwed someone makes up something new  and you are out of jail.
