What would you classify a normal winter as?
Ask any European

While I have been noticing a rather alarming trend in our climate as of late, I believe it goes deeper then the BP oil disaster. You can't blame the Russian heatwave, nor the Pakistan flooding on that. Yet each is as disastrous as the deep freeze...it was -40 in Calgary in November, people were stuck on a highway in Ontario due to a snowsquall. I think we'll be seeing a lot more phenomenon in the future, and it could all be a natural shift to a future cooler global period. Or it could be nothing but el Nina, or manmade climate change. It's too soon to tell, but you have an interesting theory, s&f.

I don't know about the UK, but I live in US North Carolina and the temps this year are definitely cold but far from the coldest I have experienced in 34 yrs on this little blue planet. I highly doubt that a oil spill in the Atlantic could affect global weather this much considering there was a similar oil spill in China around the same time of the BP spill. Also this is far from the first time there has ever been a oil spill. I mean I am not sure volume wise nor do I know what counter measures were done compared to previous spills, but just saying it's not like this is the first big oil spill ever.
And this is the 20th time Ive said this
Please do some damn research.....wow you people stun me
