A decade ago the global warming alarmists were arguing that children are likely to never see snow again. This article from 2000 in the UK Independent, featured the headline ?Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past.? It reported that:
“According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit(CRU) of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall willbecome “a very rare and exciting event”? “Children just aren’tgoing to know what snow is,” he said?The effects of snow-free winter in Britain are already becoming apparent. This year, for the first time ever, Hamleys, Britain’s biggest toyshop, had no sledges on display in its Regent Street store. “It was a bit of a first,” a spokesperson said?Fen skating, once a popular sport on the fields of East Anglia, now takes place on indoor artificial rinks?Michael Jeacock, a Cambridgeshire local historian, added that a generation was growing up “without experiencing one of the greatest joys and privileges of living in this part of the world, open-air-skating.”
