Media blames 'climate change'

31 Jul 11 - As sub-zero weather swept across South Africa this week stranding hundreds of motorists on the N3 highway and bringing light snow to Joburg, this article ever so subtly tries to pin the blame on humans.

"Speculation was rife that we are starting to feel the effects of climate change," wrote Journalist Mokgaetji Shadung.

This even though an expert climatologist said this was not necessarily the case.

“Yes, it is unusual but not unprecedented,” said climatologist Dr Willem Landman.

“People always get worked up about climate change, but it is predicted that we will only be able to see its real effects decades from now.”

He added that weather science has not even developed sufficiently to accurately predict weather patterns over the next five to 10 years.

If weather science cannot accurately predict weather patterns over the next five to ten years, then how come the IPCC is trying to con us into thinking they know what's going to happen a hundred years from now?

“It’s still early to predict when the snow will end,” said Mkhushulwa Msimanga, a senior forecaster at the South African Weather Service. South Africans should brace themselves for more cold weather and snowfall over certain parts of the country.
