Reuters ^ | Jan 5, 2013

Temperatures in China have plunged to their lowest in almost three decades, cold enough to freeze coastal waters and trap 1,000 ships in ice...

Since late November the country has shivered at an average of minus 3.8 degrees Celsius, 1.3 degrees colder than the previous average, and the chilliest in 28 years... Bitter cold has even frozen the sea in Laizhou Bay on the coast of Shandong province in the east, stranding nearly 1,000 ships, the China Daily newspaper reported.

You must understand that global warming causes global temperatures to plummet when they aren’t skyrocketing.

Could be just some sort of climate change or whatever the latest reason for fleecing the public for things that just happen naturally.

The important thing is that we find some excuse for terminating 5 or 6 billion human beings.

Duh, the Global Cooling that was predicted in the 1970’s has FINALLY reached China.

BTW, has the CO2 level in China gone up or down in the last 40 years?

Unusually cold temperatures = weather
Unusually warm temperatures = climate

Just repeat that over and over and you’ll qualify as an official “climate expert”.

Joking aside, if you anticipate an upcoming need for merchandise of any kind (from underwear to appliances, computers, cameras and television sets, etc, etc, no really: ETC!) be aware that supply chains will experience interruption, shortage will occur, affecting price points, so better hurry tomorrow to the stores (if shopping on Sundays isn’t considered sinful and forbidden by your particular religious sect) and replenish PDQ!

Here’s one link: http://investmentwatchblog.com/magnetic-north-pole-rapidly-moving-towards-russia/#uhFR1SOdIuQbHc6P.99

The Alaska one I don’t buy as much, as they can still get bad winters. The other presentations are interesting and show the progression of the polar shift toward Russia, sucks to be them.

Apparently, all that CO2 in the atmosphere has turned to dry ice.
