Global Warming Will Kill Hopes Of A White Christmas In Ireland Or Something

From the Department Of Give It A Rest comes more scaremongering which will surely mean historic levels of snow in Ireland over the next few years (via Watts Up With That?)

Global warming melts hopes of a white Christmas in Ireland
A leading climatologist has some bad news for snow-lovers

The prospect of Ireland waking up to a white Christmas is becoming more and more unlikely every year, according to a leading climatologist.

Prof John Sweeney said that Ireland can expect increasingly warmer winters due to global warming, resulting in less snowfall in the traditionally coldest months of the year. (snip)

He said: “The projections are for Ireland to warm by 1C by mid-Century, and we’re looking at both warmer summers and winters.

“We’ll always get snow in the uplands and mountains, but we’ll start to see less snow in the lowland areas in the coming years, and that means we’ll get fewer and fewer white Christmases. Let’s put it this way, if I were a betting man I wouldn’t be putting any money on there being snowfall on Christmas Day. It’s getting less likely each year.”

Can you guess what is missing? Proof of anthropogenic causation. And, again, that is the debate. Not warming, but causation.

And, as Eric Worrell points out

Of course, climate scientists can trot out predictions that global warming will cause heavier snowfalls when the inevitable blockbuster winter hits, to demonstrate they were right all along.

We all know that they’ll blame cold, snow, and ice on greenhouse gases, too boot.

    Christmas is only four days after the beginning of winter, so white Christmases are rare anyway outside of the full of snow areas. January and February are the snow months.

    Alas! I did have to suffer through a white Christmas in 2002! We got 14½ inches of heavy, wet snow on Christmas Day, and the power went out at 11:30 AM, not being restored until about 6:00 PM on the 26th. It got into the 50s in the house, and what we had of Christmas dinner was cooked on the charcoal grill out back.

    I am not a fan of snow.

    Not to worry-even if they have more snow than normal, it will still be blamed on global warming

    Again with the “our children won’t know what snow looks like”? How well did that work out the last time?

    As the Earth continues to warm we will continue to see changing regional climates.
