Scientists believe that the current freezing winter conditions in Britain and other parts of the world could signal a global warming "pause".
The rammifications could mean we'll be in for some global cooling rather than warming with colder winters expected. The shift is being blamed on a cyclic change in ocean currents.
The Arctic conditions which have brought Britain to a standstill over the past week could be the start of a "pause" in global warming, some scientists believe.
