CHARLES ONIANS, March 20, 2000, at UK's The Independent:
Britain's winter ends tomorrow with further indications of a striking environmental change: snow is starting to disappear from our lives.

Sledges, snowmen, snowballs and the excitement of waking to find that the stuff has settled outside are all a rapidly diminishing part of Britain's culture, as warmer winters - which scientists are attributing to global climate change - produce not only fewer white Christmases, but fewer white Januaries and Februaries.
No Nostradamus, he...

Had it been a skeptic blowing it this bad, he'd be already on trial at the Climatic Inquisition. But you can be a ecochondriac, miss if by a thousand miles, and keep on pontificating as if nothing happened.
