Sometimes Even Oxford Atmospheric Physicists Get Confused:

chicagotribune.com: Britain this year has had its coldest start to winter in 30 years, with temperatures 5 degrees below average, but "this would have felt like a warm year as recently as the 1980s, and an exceptionally warm year in Victorian times," said Myles Allen, an atmospheric physicist at the University of Oxford.


Unless I'm missing something, thirty years ago was 1978, and 1978 was prior to the 1980s.
