    Default The extreme winters

    Coldest weather in 30 years marks the start of a series of extreme winters

    Seems the cooling was related to the sun's activity, and theres more to come.

    yeh, the assessment seems a ton more rational vs. some of the other theories out there.

    Don't count global warming out. At least its still melting the arctic, dumping all the fresh water into ocean....slowly the windcurrents should be changing.

    Experts observing this week’s volcanic eruption at Eyjafjallajökull (pronounced AY-ya-fyat-la-yo-kult) say that while the scale of crisis may not be the same, continued eruptions at the spot could cool temperatures in Northern Europe. Richard Wunderman, a volcanologist with the Smithsonian Institution’s Global Volcanism Program said the volcanic plume contains a lot of sulfur “that can become an aerosol up there that hangs around a long time reflecting sunlight” [The New York Times], creating a regional “volcano weather” effect.

    But a bigger concern lurks nearby. Just a few kilometers to the east of the erupting vent is a much bigger and potentially more dangerous volcano called Katla. In the past, when Eyjafjallajökull erupted, Katla did too. So scientists are closely monitoring Katla to see if it, too, might go

    We just finished up a short and "warm" winter in central Canada this year.

    I'd like a few more decades of that please.

    According to my env. sci. professor, I believe we've had seven of the highest recorded temps in the past decade.

    In my area (southern-ish ontario) we did, too. It was absolutely fantastic. About a month ahead of normal temperatures for Jan-Mar (now I think it's closer to normal), and no big snowfalls since Dec.

    Can't say if there are negative effects on plants, etc though. I heard the maple syrup season was awful.
