Has it been that long?

It seems like only yesterday that AlBore jumped on the GlowBull warming express and started getting rich(er) off his carbon trading scam.

But it;s been ten years that we've been hearing the dire warnings of what a hell-hole of heat the earth will become in ten or fifteen years.

According to the U.K. Independent- by now British children should have forgotten what snow was.

However, the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. 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".

"Children just aren't going to know what snow is," he said.

The effects of snow-free winter in Britain are already becoming apparent. This year, for the first time ever, Hamleys, Britain's biggest toyshop, had no sledges on display in its Regent Street store. "It was a bit of a first," a spokesperson said.
