The Voice of Russia today has a report titled Scottish in fear of bad weather more than terrorism. At first I thought it was about just another twisted survey to give the impression that people fear global warming climate change and the extremes it’s supposedly brings.
But when you actually read the report, you quickly discover what Scots are really far more worried about: brutal winters!
The Voice of Russia writes (my emphasis):
Nearly half of Scottish people are afraid of being clobbered by an ‘extreme weather’ emergency this winter season… . Concern has been mounting over power and water cuts, and Scots are in fear of being stuck in vehicles or trains in blizzard-like conditions.”
Here we see that the report is talking about ice-age-like winter conditions! The kind that climate scientists, like David Viner, said we’d rarely ever see again in the future.
Today 49% of Scots fear the coming winter this year. Last year the figure was 38%. Alarm over cold winters is rising rapidly.
So why are Scots getting ever more scared of brutal winters in times of purported warming?
The answer is because it hasn’t been warming at all in Europe over the last years. If anything winters have been getting harsher, more dangerous and are completely the opposite of what Europeans were told to prepare for a few years ago.
The Voice of Russia writes that Scots have fresh memories of brutal, life-threatening winter conditions (again my emphasis):
‘Severe weather can strike quickly and at any time of year. In March, we saw the impact of severe snowstorms on communities in Arran, Kintyre and Dumfries and Galloway,’ Transport minister Keith Brown said and added, ‘So whether it is making your home energy efficient, protecting your pipes, packing an emergency kit for the car or looking out for vulnerable neighbors, we can all play our part in helping Scotland get ready for winter.'”
Does this sound like people getting ready for global warming?
It also appears that Scottish citizens are losing faith in their energy supply.
It has been estimated that 28 percent experienced some delay in their gas, water, or electricity in the past year. In rural areas the percentage was much higher, at 41 percent.”
