It’s Not Snow: It’s Gaia’s Dandruff To Reflect The Sun

by | 28th, November 2010

BRRRR! It’s bloody cold. In case you, kids, are unable to recognise that white stuff, it used to be called snow. Ask grandma.

As the Indy told is in 2000:

Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past

It went on:

Sledges, snowmen, snowballs and the excitement of waking to find that the stuff has settled outside are all a rapidly diminishing part of Britain’s culture, as warmer winters – which scientists are attributing to global climate change – produce not only fewer white Christmases, but fewer white Januaries and Februaries.

To say nothing of white Novembers:

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 will become “a very rare and exciting event”.

“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.

So, mummy, what is that white stuff all over the house and fields and roads? Has it been put there by Gaia to reflect the sun’s heat..?
