“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.”
Remember that pronouncement from Dr David Viner, senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia? Back in the year 2000, Viner announced that within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.
“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” said Viner.
David Parker, at the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research in Berkshire, echoed Viner’s warning. Ultimately, children “could have only virtual experience of snow,” said Parker.”Via the internet, they might wonder at polar scenes – or eventually “feel” virtual cold.”
Interesting, isn’t it, that the CRU at the University of East Anglia and the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research were both involved in the Climategate scandal?
