Irony: Blizzard Dumps Snow on "Global Warming" Conference

Dec. 17 (Bloomberg) -- World leaders flying into Copenhagen today to discuss a solution to global warming will first face freezing weather as a blizzard dumped 10 centimeters (4 inches) of snow on the Danish capital overnight.

“Temperatures will stay low at least the next three days,” Henning Gisseloe, an official at Denmark’s Meteorological Institute, said today by telephone, forecasting more snow in coming days. “There’s a good chance of a white Christmas.”

Delegates from 193 countries have been in Copenhagen since Dec. 7 to discuss how to fund global greenhouse gas emission cuts. U.S. President Barack Obama will arrive before the summit is scheduled to end tomorrow.

Denmark has a maritime climate and milder winters than its Scandinavian neighbors. It hasn’t had a white Christmas for 14 years, under the DMI’s definition, and only had seven last century. Temperatures today fell as low as minus 4 Celsius (25 Fahrenheit).

DMI defines a white Christmas as 90 percent of the country being covered by at least 2 centimeters of snow on the afternoon of Dec. 24.

I have always wondered what Americans mean by a "snow job". I gather it means to mislead - especially by words of flattery.

There must be plenty of "snowing" going on in political circles, and plenty of "freezing" over helping developing countries. Maybe they should all look outside the window at REAL snow!

I love stories like this. I wonder if they realize the irony of it all. Probably not.

I was hoping to get in touch with you about an organization I'm involved with: ProLife ProPatria (

Seeing your commitment to understanding and talking about pro-life ethics from the perspective of politics and policy making, I'd be very interested to speak with you about contributing to our site.

My email is: I hope we can be in touch!
