There's No Business Like No-Snow Business

Al Gore parlayed Katrina and some Powerpoint slides into a multi-million dollar apocalyptic we-in-the-West-are-so-bad-we-must-be-punished-by-Nature climate scam scare.

Drudge reminds us of the predicted no-snow apocalypse via this, circa 2000:
Britain's winter ends tomorrow with further indications of a striking environmental change: snow is starting to disappear from our lives....
... 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.
Fast-forward to 2010, and the photo of a single, solitary polar bear dog freezing in the snow, along with this Daily Mail headline: Coldest December since records began as temperatures plummet to minus 10C  bringing travel chaos across Britain. It's fairly safe to say that Britain's children have a pretty good idea of what snow is.

In the Bible, Christ says that a good God makes his sun to shine on the just and the unjust. He also apparently makes his snow fall on global warming deniers and believers alike.

Merry Christmas!
