Over on the top left you see this Tagline:

“Pull up a polar bear and pop a Cresta”

So, what does it mean?

Polar Bear =  Chair – Cockney rhyming slang, innit. 🙂

Cresta = Co2 injected beverage popular in global cooling period of the 1970’s

    Happy New Year to everyone.
    Recently I was invited by ‘tallbloke’ to visit his blog.
    It is New Year day after all, so no long comments, just to say that during the last year or two, I have compiled number of graphs, some self-explanatory, some not.
    They can be found here:
    all the best for 20-10

    From this chart

    is clear that majority of the CE temperature rise is a slow recovery from LIA, and mainly by the rise in winters’ temperatures. Last 5-6 years shows stabilisation of the winter temps , while during last 10 years summer’s have actually fallen.
    Even if GW is due to CO2 (which I believe it is not) any further warming in winters could be only beneficial to the population of UK (lower heating bills and less carbon consumed for heating).
