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?

I asked my dad about this. He said that they did, in fact, launch the missile at Bin Laden's tent, but he had left beforehand. Proof of what lack of true information can do to an argument...my bad! However, this specific does not change my agreement with Dalen nor my sketchy feelings toward the Clintons and most (more than ~75% of politicians) of their "political insanity." Photo forthcoming...
