    Default Energy and Weather?

    Does anyone else think that the extreme weather conditions are being caused by the Russians invading UK air space and seeding the clouds?

    The have the technology to do this, its been well covered on the history channels, also its putting pressure on the energy supply once all the off shore energy resources are used up unless they reopen the mines, which they wont, the UK will be dependent either on Nuclear Power (a security threat) or foreign suppliers (including Russia, who have a virtual monopoly control of energy supplies to Europe already).

    The U.S has their own weather control paraphenalia (the controversial HAARP is considered to be a weapon), so I doubt that it could be pinned to a singular country.

    Furthermore, the record cold temperatures are very likely all natural. There have been plenty of signs of global temperatures falling and rising naturally.

    The dustbowl phenomenon of the 1930's was bad agricultural systems which were overloaded by a global warming which later subsided. The rapid spread of various famines and plagues could also have been attributed to natural drops in temperature.

    During the 1970's environmentalists were up in a stir about global cooling, now it's global warming.

    Either way, global temperatures fluctuate to geological shifts and varying proximities Earth has to the sun. We have just come off of a warming cycle, so it is natural that we hit a cooling one very soon.

    No, snow is more likely to happen when it's not so bitterly cold because when it gets that cold the air dries out.

    Therefore, it is still global warming.

    Do bear in mind that the OP is referencing England. The British Isles are notorious for its chronic precipitation, so it would naturally recieve more snow, and the air would not dry out so easily as it would elsewhere.

    Where I live, right now, it is bitter cold, best word to describe it. However, the temperature in the mid-eastern seaboard fluctuates. We've had a spell of bitter cold, which is being broken by scattered snow storms.

    And if it is snowing that means the temperature is freezing point maximum, possibly below, which probably counts as cold and less extreme.

    Furthermore, the OP and myself were talking about temperature extremes and direct human manipulation of such weather for various purposes, nowhere did either of us even mention snow, so where did that come from?

    Lol, no, not really possible. I doubt Russians can manipulate low-pressure systems. There's a low pressure system centered on France, attracting cold air from scandinavian and polar region towards the UK and Spain. Russians have little to do with it.

    Global warming?... Maybe,... But I don't think it was induced by people, and it's definitely not the cause from our excessive use of carbon based fuels. Volcanoes are much worse in terms of carbon emissions.

    I don't think it matters much, considering we live on a ball of carbon that is naturally decomposing on its own anyways, without our help.

    The question isn't whether or not we can do something about it to stop it, because that's not going to happen. It's about questioning if we can we can adapt ourselves to the planets evolution quick enough...
