THEY WERE AS WRONG ABOUT THAT AS EVERYTHING ELSE. WALES WILL GET 12 INCHES TODAY.
Richard North from the EU Referendum writes of a curious juxtaposition of forecasts, then and now. I thought it worth sharing here since it highlights the chutzpah with which CRU botched their forecast in March of 2000. At least they didn’t claim that UK snowfall was in a “death spiral”.
From The Independent on 20 March 2000 we got the headline: “Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past”. 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”.
WUWT THAT HAS LOT MORE ON THE ISSUE - INCLUDING HILARIOUS SCREE-GRABS OF THE 2000 CRU PREDICTIONS.
AGW = BS.
