The weather's natural variability means it is impossible to draw long-term conclusions about a changing climate from any single episode, be it of hot, or cold.

Over the last decade whenever a major weather event occured it was all over the media 'proving' that manmade global warming was indisputable fact. The floods of 2007? Blame man made global warming. The heatwave of 2003? Blame man made global warming.
The major source of such claims has been the WWF-Meteorological Office. We now know to our detriment that the WWF-MO cannot predict the weather a few days in advance, except in exceptional circumstances as now in which a large static weather system hangs over the UK.
But as with this system, did the WWF-MO predict the current deep freeze? NO!
The WWF-MO forecast a mild winter (which I suppose it had to with the Copenhagen meeting occuring in December), which may have affected the planning of councils and corporations across the UK leading to the state of the nation today; standstill.
The WWF is a green Nazi-fascist organisation with the aim of reducing development and reducing human population.
When the WWF-MO has attempted longer term forecasts, such as last winter, last summer, and this winter it has failed spectacularly!
And the Climategate scandal was a treasure trove of inconvenient truths; climate data had been deleted, sexed-up and manipulated to 'prove' manmade global warming, while opposing theories and scientists were ignored.
Did any of the mainstream media investigate and report on the Climategate data and its implications? NO!
Instead they complained that the UEA CRU was a victim of crime!
When a major (unpredicted) freeze occurs we are told that it is still compatible with manmade global warming, and in some cases supports it.
When a major source of information is released indicating that the theory of manmade global warming has been sexed-up and manipulated as truth (just like Iraqi WMD) it is ignored.
When a major geographical disaster occurs we are told that it is due to manmade global warming.
We are supposed to believe the forecasts of the climate decades in advance from people who can't forecast the weather a week in advance.
