Your Fault: Britain May Never Experience A Dickensian White Christmas Again

‘Dickensian’ White Christmas may never be seen in Britain again due to climate change

Bing Crosby famously dreamt of a White Christmas, but Britain may never see a proper snowy scene on December 25 again, according to experts.

A ‘Dickensian’ scene of widespread snow on the ground on Christmas Day could be consigned to British history due to climate change, the Met Office says.

It’s not impossible that generous blankets of snow will cover British ground at Christmas again some point in the future, it told MailOnline.

But the effects of climate change mean the required conditions for snow in the UK will occur less frequently, and chances could keep getting smaller as this century progresses.

In other words, when it happens they will either say this is the exception or it’s actually caused by ‘climate change’.

The Met Office’s official definition of a White Christmas is just one snowflake to be observed falling in the 24 hours of December 25 somewhere in the UK.

Under this definition, 2020 was technically the last White Christmas in the UK, with six per cent of weather stations recording snow falling.

But the more generous Dickensian scene worthy of ‘A Christmas Carol’ – consisting of thick blankets of snow covering the ground up and down the country – has proved to be somewhat more elusive.

The story, which is actually entitled “A Christmas Carol. In Prose. Being a Ghost Story of Christmas”, was published in 1843, as the Little Ice Age was coming to an end. Dickens would have seen many a white Christmas during his years, but, he would have been only 2 when the River Thames really, truly froze over and they held an Ice Fair. But, see, the climate flips, going between warm and cool periods. Even during the cool and warm periods you can get the other, such as the period around 1945-1978, where the global temperatures were dipping. You even had a good freeze of the Thames in 1962-1963. Not like during the Little Ice Age, but, it was there.

This is a doomsday cult, though, so, they have to see witchcraft, er, carbon pollution, in everything, hence, because of things Other People do (not themselves, of course. They’re exempt because they Believe), things are Horrible and Doomy and we should all pay Penance.

    All my fault that the poor and elderly in Britain will no longer freeze to death in the winter. OK. I’ll take that.

  2. John Dowling says:

    The Met Office, better known as the Wet Orifice, have an unerring ability to make a total dogs dinner of any weather forecast. Earlier this week they were giving a 60% chance of a white Christmas. Christmas Day, 8c (46 Fahrenheit) and drizzle. It would be cheaper to buy everyone in Britain a home weather station and it would give better results. Treat their prattling with the contempt it deserves.

  3. alanstorm says:

    They made this prediction 10 – 15 years ago.

    It didn’t happen.

    On the plus side, they’re consistent – 0 out of who knows how many predictions have come true.

    There’s a term for a belief system that is not questioned even when their predictions fail to materialize… and it’s not “science”.

    • L.G.Brandon says:

      No, it’s voodoo.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      alanstorm: They made this prediction…

      Who are ‘They’? The anti-science crowd relies on selecting a random headline and assigning it to ‘They’, implying that it is a scientific prediction.

      The headline: Will we ever see another proper White Christmas? Climate change could spell the end of the festive ‘Dickensian’ scene of widespread snow on the ground in Britain… somewhat overstated the scientists’ position (but headline writers are trying to draw you in).

      In this case it was a spokesperson from the UK Met Office saying, in part:

      ‘As temperatures rise in line with climate change, we would expect the conditions for snowfall and lying snow in the UK to occur with decreasing frequency,’ Met Office spokesperson Richard Miles told MailOnline.

      ‘According to our modelling the effects of climate change would mean that statistically the UK would be less likely to see a White Christmas this year than in previous decades.

      How can you argue with this: The chances of blanketing snows in the UK are likely to be less frequent.

  4. formwiz says:

    We can argue because

    A) It’s more global wahoo based on lies.

    B) The UK Met Office is just another deep state outfit loaded with Lefty apparatchiks.

    You’re spreading yourself too thin, Jeffery, and it’s showing.
