Here comes the new ice age. Writes the Daily Express:
“BRITAIN is set to suffer a mini ice age that could last for decades and bring with it a series of bitterly cold winters.
Scientists say the anticipated cold blast will be due to the return of a disruptive weather pattern called La Nina. Latest evidence shows La Nina, linked to extreme winter weather in America and with a knock-on effect on Britain, is in force and will gradually strengthen as the year ends.”
I would be the last one to say that London weather is a pleasure, rather it’s a common theme in books and movies. The same goes for the other side of the channel. A walk along the coast around Oostende can be marvelous. A few days per year.
The positive side is that, in this case at least, media is back to recognicing the climate pattern, even making paralelles to the “little ice age”, about 300 years ago.
Are we finally back to talking science, instead of politics and money? At least something to consider in Durban, while we Europeans put on our winter coats.
