On this day

in 1895, the lowest ever UK temperature of -27.2°C was recorded at Braemar in Aberdeenshire. This record was equalled, also at Braemar on 10th January 1982. Minus 27°C was also recorded at Altnaharra (Highland) on 30th December 1995.

Not very well worded but I think we get the gist.

I suppose if we are to beleive the climat alarmists this will be a record never to be broken. On the other hand, if we beleive some of the new forecasts it may become common place:

Interestingly, in Canada, we are told that, back in 1991 before Al Gore first shouted that the Earth was in the balance, the Danish Meteorological Institute released a study using data that went back centuries that showed that global temperatures closely tracked solar cycles. To many, those data were convincing.

Now, Canadian scientists are seeking additional funding for more and better "eyes" with which to observe our sun, which has a bigger impact on Earth's climate than all the tailpipes and smokestacks on our planet combined. And they're worried about global cooling, not warming

I've said it before and I'll say it again, global cooling is the new global warming. Like we are simultaneously supposed to be worried about the population explosion in the Third World and also that they are all starving to death or dying of AIDS, I mean, I can worry about one or t'other (or neither) but not both simultaneously!!!

Even if we do get global cooling, as they were worried all the evidence pointed to in the late 70s, it will be ages before the climate gravey train has to acknowledge it.

Then they will probably blame it on carbon emissions...
