Global Cooling?

Everybody is talking about global warming – but in Germany and also in many other countries around the world people are currently fighting with the adversities of extreme cold. And indeed: “The year 2010 will be the coldest for ten years in Germany,” said Thomas Globig from the weather service Meteo Media...

And it might even get worse: “It is quite possible that we are at the beginning of a Little Ice Age,” the meteorologist said. Even the Arctic ice could spread further to the south.


But why is it so cold just now? Might it have anything to do with climate change? “I’m very sceptical”, replied Globig. A few years ago when we had a period of mild winters many climate scientists warned that winter sport in Germany’s low mountain ranges would soon no longer be possible anymore because of global warming. “Now they are saying: the cold winters are a consequence of global warming – a questionable implication,” according to Globig.

“New Little Ice Age Cannot Be Ruled Out”

  1. Not sure that we really want a "New Little Ice Age"...the last one was...well not great!!! Being currently half buried under snowdrifts and wondering when the next food delivery lorries are going to get through to the supermarkets I for one am not convinced I'm going to like the next Little Ice Age ;)
