High Priestess of Global Warming Snowbound!

Beautiful irony! The Guardian reports that Vicky Pope from the Met Office ( who incidentally predicted a mild winter) was prevented from flying to the Warmist talk-fest at Cancun because her plane was grounded.

Vicky Pope, head of the climate predictions programme at the Met Office's Hadley Centre, was stuck at Gatwick airport this week, a victim of Britain's brutal cold snap. Ironically, she was on her way to CancĂșn to announce, together with the UN's World Meteorological Organisation, that 2010 had provisionally tied with 1998 as the hottest year on record. Scientists from the Noaaa and Nasa, the two other institutes that provide data on global temperatures were wisely staying put in the US, having already stated that it looked like being the hottest year ever.

Cancun attendees unfortunately will have to miss out on more of her accurate predictions for the future!
