Madrid airport closed as Europe freezes

______________________________

9 Jan 09 - Look at the spin at the end of the article!

- Nearly 400 km (250 miles) of traffic jams in and around the Spanish capital.

- Several rivers in Germany frozen

- Much of Europe enduring Siberian conditions.

- Days of heavy snow in France's southern Marseille region -- not seen for 20 years -- causing major disruption to travel.

- Germany experiencing one of its coldest winters in 100 years - several rivers frozen over, blocking ship traffic – thermometer plunges to minus 34.6C (minus 30.3F) in the mountains in the south.

- Drift ice covers 80 to 90 percent of the surface of the river Elbe from Doemnitz to  Germany's main port of Hamburg.


                                       And now comes the spin:

“The World Meteorological Organization said Europe's severe cold spell was in part brought on by La Nina, an upsurge of cooler water to the Pacific Ocean surface.

"However, it should be recalled that weather conditions are the result of extremely complex interactions, and, therefore, one particular event cannot be attributed to one specific cause," the UN weather agency said.

                         How about attributing it to the ice-age cycle?
