Global Cooling Anyone?

This northern hemisphere winter has done nothing to help confirm the global warming scenarios that have so quickly captivated the political classes.

Last week Jerusalem had its second snowfall in a month and the Acropolis was sheathed in snow in Athens for the first time in living memory.

Extremely heavy snowfalls have destroyed 10% of China's forest and wreaked havoc with their economy, not to mention made the lives of millions miserable.

Snow also fell on the deserts of Iran and in Saudi Arabia. Sights not seen for many decades.

Snow has returned to crown Mt Kilimanjaro - remember Al Bore said the loss of snow from the peak of Kilimanjaro was evidence of global warming.

Meanwhile four leading climate institutes have published reports - all using different methodologies and data sets - that show the earth's temperature cooled in the past year; January 2007 - January 2008. See here for the four reports.

Talk about An Inconvenient Truth.... I think we'd all agree.
