Copenhagen Undone by a Simply Inconvenient Truth


Much of Europe continues to face transport problems because of freezing weather but some services have resumed.

More than 90 people have died across the Continent, 10 of them in a single day in Poland, where the winter death toll now stands at 79.

Air, rail and road transport has been severely disrupted.

But Eurostar resumed a limited service and flights restarted from Frankfurt airport - Europe's third-biggest - after it was closed overnight.

The disruption has come during the busy Christmas holiday season, affecting many people's travel plans.

(snip)

Road traffic in the UK was severely disrupted, including the south-east where roads were gridlocked late on Monday after numerous crashes in heavy snowfall.

Major roads elsewhere in Europe were blocked after some regions had snowfall of up to 50cm (20in).

I'll say it again: Snow and cold? In December?? I'm SHOCKED!! I guess Algore isn't the green messiah Copenhagen thinks he is?

I've seen this type of post a great deal recently.

From my own research, I understand that warming, whether anthropogenic or not, will lead to increased winter precipitation in northern Europe. Where I live it has been cold (-2 C) but nowhere near as cold as some of the winters we experienced in the 70s and 80s where a cold winter would mean temperatures closer to -10 C. What we are definitely seeing is more rain, which combined with low (but not that low) temperatures equals lots and lots of snow.
