Posted on 02/20/2008 7:27:47 PM PST by george76
Record-setting cold weather has killed more than 8,000 cattle and 100,000 hectares of paddy rice in northern Vietnam since mid-January, officials said Tuesday. Most of the cattle have died in northern mountainous provinces, where temperatures during the month-long cold spell have sometimes dropped to below zero Celsius, a rarity in Vietnam.
"We fear that the number of cattle killed by coldness and shortage of food in northern provinces will keep rising in the coming days," ...
The cold spell, which the National Hydrometeorology Forecast Center says is the longest ever in Vietnam, has also killed up to 100,000 hectares of the winter-spring crop of paddy rice throughout the northern provinces.

Longest ever cold snap in Vietnam? Wonder if that includes the last ice age?
Brrrr... Longest Ever Cold Spell Kills Cattle & Rice in Vietnam
The wise old Goracle has been proved correct once again. Who could question the wisdom of the man who invented the internet?
It should be abundantly clear this winter that global cooling is a greater threat to humanity than global warming. Seeds do not sprout and crops do not grow in cooler than normal temperatures. These freezing temperatures could very well lead to severe famines in Viet Nam and China this year. I haven’t heard a peep out of Fat Algore this winter. He must be hibernating until the Dem convention.
How many years of this will we have to put up with before they tell us to burn our leaves and our garbage?
I guess this proves that Hell can freeze over.
0 C isn’t cold enough to harm cattle. Crop failure can result from prolonged cold, and cause starvation, but the cattle would most likely have become burgers and steaks long before that.
the ongoing spell has lasted for 35 days...
Did you every see snow there ?
He’s too busy indulging in his own glory. His Nobel Peace Prize is starting to look embarrassing at this point.
Famine would be just peachy to he likes of Algore- reduces human population, don’cha know... and it would be blamed on GW all the same. Bit by bit, though, Global Warming is morphing into Climate Change and human activity is blamed for all weather and climate. And good weather is more ominous than hurricanes. There is no joy in Liberalland. Ever.There is always a Disaster around the corner and it is always due to Sin, though they don’t call it “sin.” There is no transcendent God thus We are God and Liberals(the left generally) are God’s Mind.
There was no Viet Nam in the last Ice Age. The Vietnamese were all down in the Islands drinking beer and eating barbecue on the sand back then.
There’s a legend that it snowed there once in 580 AD.
I wonder how cold it got during the Year of the Volcano (Tambora—1816).
Al Gore will be deeply disappointed.
Note to Algore: You can come out now - global warming is over, baby!!!!
Not to worry, it will not be the first or last time that liberals deny reality.
Record cold in Fargo this morning: Minus 31 degrees.
Just a record for the date. We’ve had colder.
I remember when it got down to 70 where I was and with the wind coming off the ocean it was field jacket time.
Brrr. Of course, it won’t be that cold there next week, when the temperature here may reach as high as freezing. :’)
I was just going to post that the record cold winter across southern Asia also hit North Korea hard, but the weather/temperature maps shows North Korea escaped with mostly normal temps this winter (dang).
They can never be wrong, or apologetic, on or for anything.
cold here too
A friend, whose liberal do good sister, cut her trip to Nam short due to the cold. The only warm clothes she had were what she wore to LAX, and those weren’t warm enough.
LOL ... my dad was in Vietnam for 2 years (Infantry) (God rest his soul). He would have gotten one hell of a laugh from seeing this.
The more liberals who are impacted and who have personal experiences that do not support AGW, the better. Narcissists always put more stock in whatever they personally experience.

I don’t know about some liberals. Monday I had my quarterly tooth cleaning and told the Dental Hygeniest about how cold it was in Mexico.
She had me tell the office liberal about the record cold temps in Mexico. The office liberal tried to blame it on global warming and try to end the conversation. Her peers just laughed at her, and she wasn’t laughing nor changed from her Green Nazism.
Roger That! In the central highlands we thought of “cold” as temperatures in the low 70’s F.
The area of freezing weather is farther north, but still the whole idea of any part of Vietnam having freezing weather sounds unbelievable.
What short memories you all have. Don’t you remember that when John Kerrey crossed over into Cambodia from Vietnam in his swift boat on Christmas Day, it was snowing!
Well, that’s what he said...
Perhaps not just yet.
From my time on the left, I can tell you that nothing will silence a Progressive like ridicule and embarrasment, especially from their cohorts.
Give it time. A couple of years ago, I had an old friend who now believes wholly in AGW tell me how he was planting live oaks and various nut trees (in Western Wisconsin, where, besides the temperatures and some virulent nut tree diseases, we get pretty constant drying winds from the Plains) because of Climate Change. I just listened and even asked him for recommendations on what to plant. All of this was in front of several other people, some of them quietly skeptical. Recently, I asked someone about Roger’s trees. They just laughed and said he had lost a bunch last winter. He’ll have lost more this year. I will bet that by next Spring, if 2008-09 is cold, he will be back to oak and spruce. Same guy was predicting the end of maple syrup, but it looks like this is going to be a banner year for that.
Sure, some Greenies will continue to parrot the party line, but eventually, they will change the subject and AGW will fall down the memory hole. Even now, whenever I have asked over this winter where my global warming went, I have received glares and silence from the devotees. It is fun and laughing keeps me warm. ;) It is only going to get more difficult for them to keep on with the big scares. A lot hinges on this summer. If it is freaking hot, which I doubt (we didn’t even put in our bedroom a/c last summer and I had to heat the pool almost all the way through July and August), they will be vindicated in their own minds. If it is mild, they will become even quieter.
global warming ping
You may be right about some of them.
MTBE has faded down the memory hole of most of the libs out here in Cali land. They have never admitted that they had a carcenigen put into our gasoline. They just forget about it.
New!!: Dr. John Ray's
Ping me if you find one I've missed.
www.vps.com but it won’t work on FR. It is unicode and easy to use. I have turned on friends in VN to it but had to stop because of the anti-Communist stuff on the site. I used to like to read it but they hardly ever update.
