  • Description

    As Canada's emergency snow-clearing services swung into operation this week-wend to tackle blocked roads and traffic pile-ups, America's first major blizzard of the winter was sweeping down into the United States bringing record snowfalls as far south as Virginia and Kentucky.

    The weather in North America looks like conforming with the pattern in Western Europe, which is currently in the grip of one of the worst winters on record.

    Some meteorologists claim to see the beginnings of a trend in the increasing deterioration of the weather -- and there are suggestions that we may even be at the beginning of a new Ice Age.

    A British scientist has suggested that there is evidence that the Earth has entered a new cooling down period. Glaciers, which have been retreating since the beginning of the century, are now beginning to grow again.

    Many scientists tend to relate the fluctuations of climate with increases and decreases in the activity of the sun. But an American scientist has recently claimed that man's interference with the climate is substantial. So far, however, this interference has only resulted in local change, and not in any world-wide weather alterations.
