Global Warming Freezes the Sea off Southern England

Too bad CO2 doesn’t really cause global warming. Then we could warm things up by cranking out more of it. But then, that might ruin the ice skating off the southern coast of England:

Temperatures plunged so low today that the sea actually began to freeze as Arctic conditions continued to grip the UK.

In the exclusive enclave of Sandbanks in Poole, Dorset the surf had frozen solid as the waves lapping the shore began to frost over.

A half-mile stretch along the shoreline reaching about 20 yards out to sea is covered in ice on the expensive peninsula.

In southern England, normally immune to the worst of the cold weather in winter, temperatures fell as low as -12C — and the chill will go on for several days according to forecasters.

I’ll save the trolls some trouble by noting that cold is weather, which is different from climate, and besides it’s caused by global warming.
