Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Night and Day, “Europe and snow”

In 2000, winter snowfalls were on the way out:

Britain’s winter ends tomorrow with further indications of a striking environmental change: snow is starting to disappear from our lives.

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.

A decade later…

Heathrow airport has closed its runway due to snow … Gatwick Airport has closed its runway until at least 3pm because of heavy snow

Huh.  Go figure.

Kudos to Ed Driscoll for the chronicle.
