BOSSES at East Yorkshire’s two authorities say they are ready to tackle whatever the predicted "horror winter" throws at them. As Britain braces itself for what is expected to be the coldest and longest winter in modern history, Hull City Council and East Riding Council have been preparing for it since the summer.
Long-range weather forecaster Exacta Weather has predicted above-average snowfall and plummeting temperatures in the north of England, with the first of the Arctic-like weather arriving next week – and lasting until February. An Exacta Weather spokesperson told the Mail: “The northern half of the country is likely to experience a run of well-below average temperatures for the vast majority of December and multiple major snow events. These will include some potentially dangerous blizzard conditions at times.”
HEAVY SNOW WARNING: Shock long range UK weather forecast for winter 2013
BRITAIN faces months of freezing winds and heavy snow as long-range forecasters predict a “horror winter” ahead.
One post on Felix’s website is about Victor Emanuel Velasco Herrera, a geophysicist at the University of Mexico, who predicts that the “Earth will enter a ‘Little Ice Age’ which will last from 60 to 80 years and may be caused by the decrease in solar activity.” You don’t have to be a geophysicist to figure out that less solar activity adds up to a colder Earth.
2014 is the year many scientists believe an ice age, “mini” or full-scale will begin. Herrera hedged his prediction saying that “with the mass production of current carbon dioxide (CO2) it is unlikely that we will see a major ice age like the one experienced 12,000 years ago.” Carbon Dioxide plays no role in warming the Earth. It is a very minor element of the Earth’s atmosphere.
The implications of an ice age, no matter how long or short, is its impact on the growing of crops to feed everyone. Dr. Tim Patterson of Canada’s Carleton University’s Department of Earth Sciences, in a May 18, 2007 article in the Calgary Times, wrote that satellite data “shows that by the year 2020 the next solar cycle is going to be solar cycle 25—the weakest one since the Little Ice Age (that started in the 13th century and ended around 1860)…
some " Inconvenient Truths,”, if global colding is in the works!
"FACT: The Express extreme weather headlines have no reliability value when quoting the gentlemen and organisations in this article. Whereas they have been reliable when quoting our, WeatherAction, long range forecasts - eg for Dec 2010 coldest for 100 years [Heathrow pic above], which no-one else forecast and was confirmed; or the stupendous floods of summer 2012. "It is irresponsible for any newspaper to quote any "Forecasters" without also stating an independent measure of their skill or success rate. For information none of the gentlemen or organisations quoted above have long range forecasting skill and indeed the Met Office's efforts in that direction have been to make "forecasts" which were usually the opposite to what took place. The floods in the Met office "BBQ summers" of 2007, 2008 and 2009 bear this out. Wisely, therefore, in this article the MO are very circumspect because they now know that they actually know nothing about long range forecasts. Thank you, Piers Corbyn, WeatherAction"
I wish that would happen in the U.S. Kill off all the insects.
