The only passenger rail link between Britain and the rest of Europe has been shut down indefinitely, Eurostar said Sunday, promising more travel misery for thousands of stranded passengers just before Christmas.
Services have been suspended since late Friday, when a series of glitches stranded five trains inside the Channel Tunnel and trapped more than 2,000 passengers for hours in stuffy and claustrophobic conditions. More than 55,000 passengers overall have been affected.
Eurostar runs services between England, France and Belgium. The company said Sunday it had traced the problem to "acute weather conditions in northern France," which has seen its worst winter weather in years.

And you (Grade 3 tone intended. Tell me if that's too elevated for you.)
More evidence just in: global warming causes everything. If it gets hotter, it’s global warming. Colder, ditto. Drier, yep. Wetter, same thing. Melting? Global warming did it. Ice and snow? Global warming’s the culprit.
“The glaciers on Mount Shasta in California are growing because of global warming, experts say. ”
” ‘When people look at glaciers around the world, the majority of them are shrinking,’ said Slawek Tulaczyk, a University of California, Santa Cruz, professor who studied the glaciers.”
“But the seven glaciers on Shasta, part of the Cascade mountains in northern California, ’seem to be benefiting from the warming ocean,’ he said.
“As the ocean warms, more moisture evaporates. As moisture moves inland, it falls as snow — enough on Shasta to more than offset a 1 C temperature rise in the past century.”
“The three smallest of the Shasta glaciers are more than twice the length they were in 1950.”
There you have it. More snow, more ice. Thanks to global warming. But if something (global warming) causes everything, does it (global warming) really cause anything? Then there’s the whole CO2 thing. If CO2 causes global warming, does CO2 cause everything? Or nothing? Where’s that climatologist Al Gore when you need him?

Maybe you should research your own thread.
Cant you rebuttle without childish insults? Ohh thats right you cant stand on facts so you try to attack me, im the messenger bud you hate the message, are you listening to yourself?? Is anyone??? Am i crazy??
How can you post a thread on a story dealing with record amounts of Snowfall, and than refute that there is more than average amounts of snow falling?
here ill do your homework since your an "adult" and cant seem to be bothered.
First read the above link
wrap it up with this.
But the big smoking gun here on this mystery of Snow fall, should be THE SNOW FALL!!!!
Maybe im missing your argument, clarify for me, because as it stands now your refuting above than normal historical precipitation in Norhtern France. Theres a tool called google that can answer that for you.

My take on the OP thread is that the trains cant cope with what is winter weather.
It happens every year here in the UK.
Last year the big deal was they ran out of salt/grit for the roads.
This year its the trains are broken.
The amount of snow is not as much as we used to get when I was a kid, that was in the 60's and 70's wehn places were snowed in for weeks at a time.
The current snow might be more than the past few yeras, but is it not exceptional.
What is exceptional is that modern transport systems cant cope with modest amounts of snow.
Its just farcical the way the agw perps jump on anything to prove their point. Anyone who dares to not agree with them is treated like a holocaust denier.

Using the amount of snow as a counter argument against Global Warming is just plain idiotic.
Lets examine where snow comes from, snow is like frozen rain, and rain comes from clouds, clouds are formed by the evaporation of water, HEAT EVAPORATES WATER (grade 6 tone intended).
So yes this is exactly what you would expect from a planet that is warming. I DID NOT SAY MANMADE but increased snowfall is a reaction of global warming. How are we missing this link?
