As inevitable as night follows day, scientists have claimed that the worst winter snow in London for thirty years is consistent with climate change. The UK's Telegraph newspaper reports this under the faintly amusing headline:
Snow is consistent with global warming, say scientists
Meanwhile, at the same time, our own dearly beloved Ms Penny Wong has said that the heatwave gripping south-east Australia is part of what scientists predicted would happen.
At the time that she said that (28/1/09) ,the BOM issued a chart that showed the more than two thirds of Australia was experiencing lower than normal temperatures. Most of the Northern Hemisphere was also experiencing record lows.
Can it be - honto kana - that record low temperatures indicate global warming?
When will these clowns apologise?
