Although our focus here at ClimateYou is on climate change, here is an interesting article from the New York Times about some extreme weather in London.
London was blanketed by up to 10 inches of snow on Monday, February 2, 2009. The heavy snow disrupted all forms of transportation, from cancelled flights at the airport to delays on the Tube, the city’s subway system. In addition, many stores and businesses were either closed or empty since travel on the road’s was hazardous. London’s congestion charge, a policy designed to help fight climate change, was also suspended for the day.
Whether or not climate change has something to do with the rare weather events such as this is still being investigated by scientists.
