The Finnish Meteorological Institute ("climate theologians") have their headquarters in Kumpula (Helsinki). One of their favorite mantra has been "no more snowy winters". And the snowiest place in Finland is... Kumpula (27.6"), almost the local record of recorded snow-history.

Safer to talk about "global climate change". Then no one can't argue about
uncalibrated thermometers or messy Fortran code.
