Here we have a prediction that it’s going to be so cold in Britain this winter that’s it will freeze the balls of pool tables. Based upon this, I’m making the prediction that long underwear sales in the UK will increase during the 2010-2011 winter. Sorry I don’t have any charts for you from GISS showing that this intense cold will be the result of global warming. You’ll just have to wait until James Hansen gets out of jail.
Per the Telegraph we have an article titled “Britain ‘in for another big freeze winter'” we get this……
Jonathan Powell of Positive Weather Solutions said the country should prepare itself for “back-to-back” harsh winters.
Uh-ohhh!!! Going to be colder than a well digger’s ass folks. Better stock up on long underwear, gloves, snowmobile suits, electric boots, down sleeping bags, snow shovels and other accouterments normally found in Siberia.
So what does the MET Office have to say about this? Evidently not much. If you remember the winter of 2009-2010 they predicted the warmest winter since records were kept. A prediction they had to eat when it turned out to be the coldest winter in 31 years. Now they have gone chicken.
The Met Office now limits its public predictions to 30 days.
It is predicting an “unsettled period” for October, with mild, wet and windy weather giving way mid-month to calmer conditions and near-normal temperatures – which will mean frosts for parts of the country – for the remainder.
Kind of sounds like the “safe” predictions I hear about the weather on some local radio and TV. Partly sunny, partly cloudy, chance of rain, chance of sun, chance of hot, chance of cold, chance of snow. A prediction you can’t go wrong with.
Sounds like Prince Charles better get Camilla a fur bra for Christmas. I wonder if Harrod’s has them in stock?
More CO2 Insanity.
