UK: article blames CO2 for "dramatic cold snaps"

UK local government is under a relentless barrage of propaganda from the Local Government Association's weekly magazine "First". The latest issue contains more alarmist scaremongering, listing all weather related costs incurred by a council in the past five years. The article then implies that these are all caused by "climate change". There is no attempt to compare the last five years with any other five year periods in the past, so we have no evidence to show that our weather is any more "extreme" than in the past.

The article then makes the even bigger assumption that reducing CO2 would prevent further damaging weather events occurring. It would be laughable if it wasn't for the fact that massive costs are being incurred on the basis of this empty-headed nonsense!
