Prediction in 2000:
Winter with strong frosts and lots of snow like 20 years ago will cease to exist at our latitudes,’ said scientist Mojib Latif of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg.
Explanation in 2013:
The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research sees the hard winters as being the result of global warming: Icy Arctic winds will be triggered by it and reach all the way to Europe unhindered due to climate change in the Arctic.
So the prediction was for warmer winters because of global warming, but when it turned out the winters were colder, that was also because of global warming. Aha! One religion maybe fading, two more to go.
