Worried about glaciers melting due to the global warmenizing? Well, worry no more! The glaciers aren’t melting; they’re simply moving:

Massive ice sheets will develop on high land across Wales, according to a scientist who predicts our climate will get colder, not warmer.

Previously, scientists have said climate change would lead to higher average temperatures in high latitude areas such as Britain, with rises of up to 8C. Glaciologist Dr Bryn Hubbard believes past experience proves this will not happen.

Can’t we get some consensus here?

The result for Britain and other northern latitude countries will be a dramatic cool down, ultimately leading to the possibility of glaciers forming in the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia and even on comparatively low mountains.

Frankly, Snowdonia had it coming. So, how do we avoid the glacierfication of Britain, assuming anybody would want to?

Dr Hubbard said the process could be reversed by monitoring carbon emissions.

He said, “It’s never too late to change, and you can’t be drawn into a state of apathy. The answer probably lies in money, in a global system of carbon trading in conjunction with a direct tax on carbon dioxide emissions.

“There may need to be consumer-led embargoes on goods from countries which are the worst polluters, and there should be curbs on air travel, which makes such a huge contribution to total emissions of CO2. Aircraft should not be flown with empty seats and there must be cleaner aircraft engines. Sports cars should be heavily taxed and consumers should rebel against things like excess packaging on goods.”

Scientists urged the same things to avoid warming. I advise a system of rewards for carbon emissions, increased air travel, more flights, subsidised sports cars, and packaging to be no less than 150% of the mass of any packaged object. That ought to do it.
