'no warmth could warm' to show that Scrooge is cold-hearted and no level of kindness could make him a better person

Pathetic fallacy is when you give an inanimate object a human emotion to convey a mood/theme throughout the text. In A Christmas Carol, (and a lot of other literature!) this is commonly done through the weather. If you look in stave 1, the weather is quite harsh, bitter, cold, much like Scrooge's unforgiving and selfish attitude. In stave 3 when it's Christmas Day, the weather is described much more nicely which reflects Scrooge's new, benevolent personality. I can't remember exact quotes but my advice is to scan through stave 1 and 3 and pay special attention to the weather, and get your quotes from that!
