I was looking up information for a school project I was doing an I came across this article. Is the information in this article accurate or just made up science?

Hi PeteTPP


Yep... what this site says is true


I live in the southeast of England and it has been on the news. They are basically saying that North Atlantic Oscillation could give us the coldest winter in Britain since 1964. The 1964 winter froze the river Thames and ice floes drifted down the English Channel. Many people (mainly old) died due to the extreme cold.

They have also warned us that the gas supply could run out and to check on any elderly neighbours we may have.

As a precaution i have removed my gas fire and replaced it with a natural coal burning fire. I have also stocked up on food and winter clothes

I personally think they are trying to play it down a bit so as not to alarm people to much. A cold cold winter is definitely overdue.

Hope this helps

The only thing I think you should be wary about in referencing this article is that it is a commentary and it does not provide you with references for the comments made in it. Now, undercoverchef has provided you some references reporting on the oscillation and the warnings of an extremely cold winter, and you should be able to use them to work back to say the foundational scientific study or model that is predicting that. But there are many other statements in the FCN commentary that you need to verify. For instance - the statement that Britain's North Sea production has now fell to the point they may not be able to support domestic needs. You need to verify that. It may very well be true, but you need to make sure of it first.

Multiple sources and as close to the primary sources as possible for the facts, and you'll be in good shape. Good luck on your paper!

Most of the stuff in the article you can research on the news websites.

Hope this helps.
