Is Global Warming a Lie ?

After several years of fevered speculation and dire warnings about climate change how come it’s so bloody cold ?
The Polar ice caps are supposed to be melting and will be flooding half of Britain yet every summer we have a hosepipe ban !
If the temperature is rising then why is this the coldest start to a winter in 26 years ?

The needle on my gas meter is spinning like a fan as the central heating runs continuously in order to keep your host roasty and toasty - yet I am still being warned of rising temperatures !
With the next weeks being forecast as “Siberian” :(

Because every agency and government in the world keeps banging on about this, and spending billions on it, I suspect most presume it to be true and that the planet is actually getting significantly hotter thanks to mankind.
It seems though that temperatures have flat lined for years and now the global temperature is actually going to drop ?

Whatever the answer it’s bloody freezing !

I’m proud to be British but not so proud when it snows, as is predicted again soon, we are an embarrassment !
The slightest smattering of snow seems to grind the country to a halt - look how other countries manage to cope !
I’m a failure in this department as well, it was only a few weeks ago after this brief excursion that I went straight out and had 4 new tyres fitted to my car - despite the fact they were still OK :oops:

How come some countries cope with drifts and our roads descend into chaos with a mere inch or less of snow ?
The motoring agencies immediately issue warnings not to travel or leave the house as though there’s been a massive radiation leak !
We must look pathetic to some people.

It looks as though we’ll have to prepare to weather the storm here at Goldeneye Towers and throw yet more hard earned shillings to the gas company - roll on summer !
All the best
Not So Hot Rod

    Rod,

    Could you have a log burning fire installed? Some people we know never seem to pay for their wood, it’s who you know and you strike us as a tight old b person who might have contacts in the shady world of wooden crate distribution? :)

    We find that the modern day fleecy top is all one needs to keep out the British winter chills… don’t tell us you wouldn’t dream of wearing one, instead go out and buy a really thick plumptious one…. just think, it’d make you look big and beefy too so a double winner :)

    WoE

    WoE
    I think I’ll get a book-burning stove - books are far cheaper than wood and there’s an inexhaustable supply of them !
    Best

    Rod,
    Just spent twenty minutes in the garden but had to give it up. I couldn’t feel anything in my fingers anymore. Sod this, I’m off to Singapore!

    I was going to say - ‘very wise’ but on second thoughts perhaps it’s best not to …
    You might not want to come back !
    Cheers
    Rod - just back from a frozen walk !
