This cold weather is caused by global warming

For the record (because I’m sure you’ll have seen similar articles yourself) here is a link to an article in the New York Times that explains quite nicely why the extra-cold, extra-snowy weather we’ve been having is caused by global warming.

Bundle Up, It’s Global Warming

Here’s a second piece in the Independent: Expect more extreme winters thanks to global warming, say scientists

And here’s a third by George Monbiot: Cold Burn

The question is not if, it’s what to do about it, and how fast.

    It’s good to know UK scientists are advising the government of the liklihood of further (super) cold winters, and that it’s being reported in locally, as by The Independent. What bothers me though is that the TV and radio press seem to refuse to believe in Climate Change. As the majority of the population only get their current events from TV and radio it is important that the people in TV-land in particular tell the stories of climate change as they are reported elsewhere.

    Details of the rate, extent of change, effects of change and our contribution are all being debated by scientists the world over. That’s what science does. It does not mean that the theory is wrong, or right. However, given on-the-ground observations, in addition to computer modelling, the climate change theory is being proved by more and more people. It is good that some will always work to disprove the theory. That’s what keeps science pure, honest and objective. What needs to be more widely reported is that whatever the details, the climate is changing and we will all benefit from using less energy, planting more trees and reconnecting with nature.
