The coldest bit was when we hit around negative -17 celsius in Dec.
Typically Jan is the coldest month - though I have to admit it has been consistently cooler. - 0 Celsius.
Quite frankly with global warming, I believe if politicians really cared they wouldnt have allowed the corporate deforestation of the Amazon rainforest. - Even more they would stop what is still happening and start replanting instead of coming up with the new extreme... carbon footprint this and that - regardless of how true it is.
Most politicians really do care what you think. But if you think, they care. Good example with the rainforest. Non-global warming related example: the Clinton administration, as I understand, had Bin Laden in its sights, but chose not to launch the tomahawk missile that would have destroyed him well before 9/11. I'm not looking at this with 20/20 hindsight bias, but rather that they knew he was deep trouble. He had already done some nasty things, I believe. Some Americans may have thought it murder, so Clinton decided not to launch. As you can tell, I haven't looked too deeply into this, but I would like to. Does someone know where to start?
