Climate change warning: Killer winter storms for next THIRTY years
Daily Star ^ | 12/8/2013 | Matthew Young

Posted on 12/08/2013 6:11:53 AM PST by IbJensen

KILLER freezes, floods and heatwaves will devastate Britain during the next 30 years, climate ­experts have warned.

Many people could die as extreme weather becomes common.

There will be more freak winds like the October storm, which killed four people.

Heatwaves will be lethal and the sea level will rise, leaving coastal towns at risk of being swamped by storm surges.

Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council, said he felt “obliged” to issue the warning after a new study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

It comes on the back of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, which has killed more than 5,000 people.

Sir Brian said: “Given the tragic events this year in the rest of the world and the recent IPCC report, EASAC feels obliged to draw attention to the growing impact of extreme weather in Europe.”

The continent’s leading experts had made a detailed study of likely extreme weather, he said.

Sir Brian warned: “From the major loss of lives in heatwaves to the economic and human costs of floods and storms, the implications are worrying.

“They present the European Union and Member States with significant challenges in preparing Europe for a future with greater frequency of extreme weather.”

Extreme weather is on the decline. Fewer hurricanes, fewer tornadoes, fewer droughts. Ice caps are growing at both poles too. Funny how that warming is freezing so many places. That's because history tells us we're due for a cold spell. It happens like clockwork...Look it up.

Junk science like this 'Gorebal Warming' nonsense would be mildly amusing if so many 'scientists' weren't trying to ram this down our throats!

Yup. We got to shovel about another 7 inches of globull warming off the driveway yesterday(thanks Mr. Snow plow driver for the HUGE pile of snow at the end of it) and right now it’s about 3 degrees out. Don’t think it’s hit bottom yet since the sun isn’t up for another 30 minutes.

KILLER freezes

Just a decade or so ago these same pinheads said British children would grow up never seeing snow.

And since then, Britain has had some truly severe winter weather events.

So now it's on to claiming the weather is somehow more extreme, even though each event has precedents in human history (let along geological history).

I guess that's your fallback position when the globe refuses to keep warming.

Forty years ago it was "global cooling" according to Time Magazine.Five years ago it was "global warming" according to algore,a recently minted billionaire.Now we're back to cooling.

These watermelons just can't seem to get it right.But,nevertheless,they're convinced that we in the West should commute by roller skates,do without refrigerators and shiver in the dark.

There was a book that came out a couple of years ago, title was “Not By Fire But By Ice”. I read excerpts at the time and I think the author had a website. It made a LOT more sense to me than globull ‘warming’. Whatever the ‘theory’, the earth/weather will cycle as it will and mankind is along for the ride.

I hate when that happens. Most of the time I just wish they didn't plow and save tax dollars.

Better be prepared for the Rapture then. For rumors of wars, and weather issues will be front and center of it.

But it depends if you are pre or post Rapture people.

LOL! Yup. My neighbor somehow managed to make him avoid my driveway last year after my back surgery. Guess he forgot or thinks I must be all better now. As you probably know the snow he piles up is more compacted and tougher to move than the nice dry powder in the drive itself. Where’s the enterprising youngsters that used to shovel you driveway for $10? Oh, that was us. Why go out in the cold when you can be immersed in a video game killing zombies with a chain saw?

The terrible effects of Global Cooling can be mitigated:

De-industrialize
Raise taxes
Expand government
Redistribute wealth

These four steps are pretty much guaranteed to fix whatever problem you may run across in life.

Global cooling, then global warming, and now it is cooling again. In timing that is in diametric opposition to what the atheistic chicken little libtards are trying to predict and profit from at each time.

This is proof that not only does god exist, but he loves watching libs fail and has a sense of humor.

I remember back towards the Spring. The lefty Weather Channel predicted like 17 storms and 10 Hurricanes in the Gulf area. Didn’t get close to that. Most turned out to the Atlantic before they got to the USA.

The ONLY prediction about future weather patterns worth publishing is: long term weather patterns are unpredictable. Unfortunately, that statement doesn't sell newspapers. It also doesn't lend itself to providing material for fear producing congressional speeches nor can any academic charlatan line his pockets with a consistent stream of taxpayer funded grant dollars.

Are these the same “experts” who not too long ago were claiming man caused global warming would melt the polar ice and we would all be swimming by now? Do that didn’t work for them, climate change was DOA... So what, they looked at a calendar, noticed winter was almost upon us, and decided to try to sell a cold weather scare? These guys are no better than carnival hucksters. Maybe worse.

“Everyone talks about the weather but nobody does anything.”

That joke used to be real common but not anymore.

Liberals were too stupid to know it was a joke and took it serious.

What everyone knew was a joke is now reality to the left.

That is the power of propaganda.

“...Junk science like this ‘Gorebal Warming’ nonsense would be mildly amusing if so many ‘scientists’ weren’t trying to ram this down our throats! “

Just as those with marshmallow degrees and no talent go into “public service” , science majors who really should be majoring in English go into “climate research”.

Prius drivers are useful idiots. To the GLOBALISTS, the environmental movement(global warming, climate change or extreme weather) is just a tool to provide revenue for the United Nations to become a true world government. Carbon tax, carbon credits, redistribution of wealth. COMMUNISM.
