Phil, a bit more research on what Professor John Christy is actually saying might help to temper your seemingly unshakeable belief in what people like him are coming out with. You choose to base an entire and sceptical post on a selective quote from someone who isn't averse to making misleading comments.

Just a few minutes of research produced this illuminating post featuring Christy on the US climate change blog climateprogress.org:

This blog is a fantastic, searchable resource for anyone willing to put what they would like to believe up for scrutiny alongside some science-based facts. I highly recommend it.

The blog also has plenty of science-based information on why one cold winter does not debunk global warming theory with a single snowflake. It's simple: global warming does not mean and end to cold winters.

If, in your opinion, you think the head of the Met Office, Dr Vicky Pope is somehow "ignoring" our recent cold winter here in the UK (even though she doesn't say she is in the Times piece) why don't you ask her for an explanation? I'm sure Landscape Juice readers would be keen to read her response. Or does the science-based explanation risk drawing you too far out of your sceptic comfort zone?

"You thought last winter was bad? Wait until this winter,"

"Expect global cooling for the next 2-3 decades that will be far more damaging than global warming would have been," says Easterbrook. "Twice as many people are killed by extreme cold than by extreme heat."
