Ain't That Global Warming A Bitch? (2)

Last month Chicago, now Beijing.

Cloud-seeding by Chinese meteorologists has led to the earliest snow blizzard in Beijing for two decades.

Snow has not fallen so early in the season in Beijing since 1987, officials said. The earliest recorded snowfall in the city was on October 26, 1960. Beijing is accustomed to freezing winters, but snow rarely falls more than three or four times each winter.

Yes, cloud-seeding was used, but only to increase the snowfall that was expected anyway.

Imagine how very cold it would be over there if they weren't hugely raising temperatures with gazillions of new power plants.

Beijing must be the first time that the environ mentalists could say that the weather was the result of man made climate change!

snow joke intended.

Bloody Global Cooling.

I used to make jokes about GC just for light relief from all the GW nonsense, but it turns it is might well happen.

I hate the cold.
