Fifteen years ago, Britain’s top climate scientists announced the end of snow.
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.
Today they have a different story.
Since the original forecast was made 15 years ago, Northern Hemisphere winter snow extent has rapidly increased to record levels.
