Climate Chaos Is Here Pt. 4

You're right Newfie, The cold is not unusual. The big swings are. -2 is the coldest I have seen here and is close to a record. We have been having swings of 25 degrees in the low temp from one day to the next. A change from a low of -2 to a high in the 70's in a few days is not typical for NC.

In 1986 when I moved to VA I saw the Potomac river frozen over all the way to the Chesapeake bay. The guys I worked with, who grew up there, said they used to drive on the river when it froze (in a VW :)) I lived there for 13 years and never saw it again. I don't think it has happened since then.

And I'm not complaining, just observing. But I can't say that about my wife :)

Sydney swelters on hottest day since 1939 as mercury hits 47.3C

The Australian city of Sydney has experienced its hottest weather in 79 years with temperatures in the region hitting as high as 47.3C (117F).
“There are three classes of people: those who see. Those who see when they are shown. Those who do not see.” ― Leonardo da Vinci

Insensible before the wave so soon released by callous fate. Affected most, they understand the least, and understanding, when it comes, invariably arrives too late.

But some sharks died from the cold in the US north-east, so global warming must be a hoax:

It's like the story about a man who fell off the Empire State Building. Around the 30th floor someone shouts out, "How's it going?" To which the man replied, "Alright, so far."
"For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and provide for it." - Patrick Henry

The level of injustice and wrong you endure is directly determined by how much you quietly submit to. Even to the point of extinction.
