Hmm, Greenland sure looks different in this picture right?
My prediction around the global warming debate is this: A series of mea-culpa statements will start to flow with increasing frequency and these will basically say that ‘global warming’ actually means ‘global unpredictability’ and that means many very important areas in the globe will get colder, not warmer. Furthermore, even though the ‘anthropogenic climate change’ label will continue to be used, the focus on CO2 increase will decrease and other factors will start to be thrown in the mix – including ‘freaky natural variation’, as you can see in this Daily Kos article.
The fact is that the current models did not forecast this… Actually, UK’s Met Office predicted a ‘very mild winter’.
Oh by the way folks, it is always good to remember the obvious: winter kills. I know these deaths are mostly happening in rich countries, which doesn’t play well in the media, but dead white people count too. Or at least they should…
