David Viner – March 2000

“Within a few years winter snowfall will become "a very rare and exciting event"”.

“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is," 



As the saying goes, “Pictures speak louder than words”.

    I wonder if that senior research scientist was counted as one of the supposed “95% consensus”?

    Well done! It is time for the chickens to come home to roost.

    Great stuff Paul. One for TallBloke’s TalkShop recent request post for famously stupid climate sayings perhaps?

    The only thing that Viner can qualify as is a senior fantasist

      Or for throwing in the snow, au naturel

    The worst part of this is the fact that he still makes a very good living out of telling people that he knows the future climate.

    I guess he’s still at the UEA?

      I wonder if he’s moved back then?

      His last job was at Mott McDonald, joining in 2013.

        McDonald’s? Flipping burgers?

        Still a bio for him at Mott McDonald, Principal Advisor Climate Change.
        ” chance to work in a global company that sees climate change as one of the most, if not the most important of issues that we are having to deal with and ‘build resilience’ to”
        Sounds like hes in on the “monetising” of climate change

    According to the bbc, It was rain, sleet and a dusting snow.

    The BBC has lots more good pictures, with forecasts of lots more snow and ice to come.

    Here is another possible blast from the past. There is an article on page 34 of the Daily Mail dated Tuesday, August 10, 2010. The author is Michael Hanlon writing from Greenland. The title is:

    The crack in the roof of the world.

    Beside a gaping hole in the ice cap, the Mail’s science editor watches millions of gallons from melting glaciers flood into the Arctic Ocean and admits: Yes, global warming IS real – and deeply worrying

    A couple of sub-headings…

    Greenland could end up just a lump of bare rock

    The lake vanished with a sound like an atom bomb

    Boom boom!

    Reblogged this on the WeatherAction News Blog and commented:
    And has there been an apology for this? No because the models were not wrong as when they said less snow, they meant more snow and this was well within the model ranges which included the possibility of it snowing bananas (a programmer got bored). We now know for example that the polar vortex could not possibly move to lower latitudes like it did in the 70s without co2. Jennifer Francis said so.

    Viner has that “village idiot” look
    And he is at UEA.
    See this;
    The UEA piece starts at 2.45 mins.
