The coldest winter in five years has been forecast for Britain, with “widespread snow” and brutal lows of -17C across Christmas expected to be a “shock to the system”.
During the first two weeks of winter, the UK was crippled by an onslaught of cold snaps that brought heavy snow, hazardous ice and sub-zero temperatures virtually everywhere.
Speaking to Daily Star Online, climate and weather experts predict one cold spell a week until the end of winter in the UK, warning “you have been cool and it will get colder”.
In the coming years, David Dilley, CEO of Global Weather Oscillations, believes winters will only become “more intense” in the UK due to a combination of “dangerous” climate factors.
His research shows that by 2019, Earth will enter a natural 120-year cooling cycle that happens roughly every 230 years, bucking the warming trend.
Predictions of low solar activity for 33 years between 2020 and 2053 are also predicted to send thermometers plummeting, according to his research.
The vast majority of scientists are of the view that global average temperatures have been rising steeply in the past century, with evidence showing human influence is the dominant cause.
In order to prevent catastrophic global warming, almost every country has signed up to a United Nations climate pact, whose aim is to keep global temperatures below 2C.
But Dilley, a former NOAA meteorologist, argues that Earth is “coming off” a 230-year global warming cycle and moving on to a 120-year cooling period.
Can we find some central authority to be in charge of the world’s money and use it to fight global cooling?
Merry Christmas, all!
Here in the North we are unafraid
I still want to see Greenpeace getting their ships trapped in the Ice of the Arctic Circle and leave them marooned there so they have to eat their shoes and burn their Save the Whales banners
Al Gore hardest hit.
Its -33 degrees with wind chill today they have closed all the sledding sites cause some parents dont know its too friggen cold to take the kids out to try the new sleds and saucers they found under the tree. If this keeps up we will see fewer trucks being pulled out of the lake during the sturgeon season. It is forecast to continue for the next week, plenty of left overs and hot cocoa.
