A Snowless Autumn On Some European Ski Slopes

How soon they forget.

Of course, it must be "global warming," not just natural variability in weather conditions:

Ski resorts across the European Alps are becoming increasingly worried as current bad snow conditions threaten the all important Christmas holiday period.

This autumn has been one of the worst on record with high temperatures and little snowfall.

Many resorts have had to postpone their openings and the main ski races have been cancelled because of a lack of snow.

With millions of skiers heading to the resorts over the next week there are concerns that the open runs will be very busy and people could be put off from booking again at Christmas and the New Year, costing the multi-million pound industry heavily in lost revenue, and threatening jobs.

Climate change

Many believe global warming is to blame for the lack of snow.

If, next December, people are freezing in lower than average temperatures again, will anyone in the news media remind people of this silliness about global warming's effect on the ski slopes in the autumn of 2006? No, of course not. The "climate change" propaganda only goes in one direction.
