As for climate change itself, I believe it's happening but I don't think the human factor is as big as some believe, and I certainly don't agree with a lot of the government action that has been taken as a result of it.
I think you'll find only England got the snow this year… Scotland and Ireland was clear of any 'Bad Snow' but we encountered the snow in 2010 and '11.

So yeah, England.

Lancashire area wasn't affected at all, we got snow in mid February. That was all.

There have been several examples of serious climate changes happening as suddenly as during a timespan of a few decades in the past. So I wouldn't be too sure of that.

This weather is quite weird here. October was like January without snow, and then December and January was like a cool Spring, followed by a drastic cold wave in February. And now March is as hot as May. Although I think these change automatically, and humans doesn't have as much to do with it as some people think.
The ozone layer on the one hand and global warming and CO2 on the other hand have nothing, nothing to do with each other! They are (almost) completely unrelated effects.

I worded that a little bad, but both of them has something to do with global warming, don't they?

Might not be because of Global Warming, these types of occurances happen all the time.

However... I am more afraid of Global Cooling more than anything. D:
And yet just last year we had a bitterly cold winter. I woke up one morning and it was 11 degrees... In HOUSTON! This warm spell doesn't prove a thing.

Really?

Snow hit southern Scotland and parts of Wales
England is part of the UK anyway, so I don't really see what you're getting at here. Seems like pointless nitpicking.

So no, UK.

No, UK = Collective

If not everywhere got the snow, it's not UK? It's where the bloody snow fell and that's England!
