At last…

…The first, on May 21, headed “Climate change threat to Alpine ski resorts” , reported that the entire Alpine “winter sports industry” could soon “grind to a halt for lack of snow”. The second, on December 19, headed “The Alps have best snow conditions in a generation” , reported that this winter’s Alpine snowfalls “look set to beat all records by New Year’s Day”.

Well I dunno about the Alps but it’s fucking Baltic round Manchester* and I’m off up to Gateshead tomorrow which is gonna be even worse. Oh and regular commentator Sunfish is off up the hills in the USA for a bit of winter sports.

2008 was the year man-made global warming was disproved.

Thank God for that. we got ‘em on the run Cats! I have been saying this for years to anyone who would listen. And now they are.

The Telegraph has fallen to our camp. The Times will be next. Then the rest will fall for good or ill. And by 2158 even the Indy will be calling Monbiot and Gore for the alarmist loons they ruly are.

2009 is going to be the year reality starts again. Have a good one folks. Have a remarkable one. I know I will.

*I had to return a bra to Selfridges today. I almost couldn’t use the car door my hands were so cold which was abysmal because of course the car was where heat was. I had that once in Memphis, TN and that was the coldest I have ever been. I literally came within seconds of looking like Jack Nicholson at the end of “The Shining” slumped by the passenger side door of a Honda Accord just opposite Graceland. As far as the bra was concerned I had to exchange a 32C for a 32D so, as they say, every cloud has silver lining…

    No, The Telegraph hasn’t fallen. That piece was by Christopher Booker, the telegraphs resident contrarian, and does not constitute a statement of the newspapers formal position. Booker has been in the climatically sane camp for years.

    Still, nice to see.

    I like Booker. He is what I call a proper journalist.
    One who does his own research and not just rewrites press releases like most of the rest of them.

    It’s bloody cold here in Bristol too.
    I have just been playing frisbee with the dog.
    My left hand (my best throwing one) got so cold and wet I lost feeling in it.
    Oh bugger, the pain, when the feeling starts to come back!

    Have a lovely knees up in gateshead Nick.
    You meeting up with RobtE?
    And a happy New Year to you all.
    Bit fatuous really.
    We all know that 2009 is going to be absolutely bloody hell!

    I just had minus 11 degrees C in Holland.
    Over there they know what to do with ice – they skate on it.
