Cada vez estoy más convencido de que no es una simple casualidad que esto empezara justamente cuando los arrogantes gobernantes del mundo mundial se reunieron en Copenhague para detener un calentamiento global que es una simple excusa para poner en práctica sus soberbios designios.
La nevada caída recientemente en el aeropuerto de Washington ha superado el record histórico del finales del s. XIX: Tormenta de nieve bate récord centenario en Washington. En inglés (It’s only weather):
The latest snowstorm to hit the Mid-Atlantic has made this the snowiest winter on record in Baltimore and Washington.
As of 2 p.m., there were 54.9 inches recorded at Reagan National Airport in Washington. That’s a half-inch above the previous record from the 1898-1899 season.
Bryan Jackson of the National Weather Service says that as of 7 a.m. Wednesday, 5.2 inches of snow had fallen at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. That brings the total snowfall since December to 65.6 inches, the most since record-keeping began in Baltimore in 1893. The previous record, from 1995-96, was 62.5 inches.
El Baron Bodissey nos cuenta aquí la historia de lo que les sucedió a ellos (An End to the Little Ice Age):
What laid us low this time was not the snow — there was significantly less of that than predicted — but rather a deadly combination of mixed climate change, in the following sequence:
1. Five or six inches of wet snow fell in absolute stillness, which allowed it to layer itself beautifully along every branch, twig, electric wire, and pine needle in this part of Central Virginia.
2. Four or five hours of steady rain. It wasn’t freezing rain at first, although towards the end of the rainy period it did start to freeze. But before then it soaked the snow thoroughly, making it heavy. None of the snow dropped off the branches, it just turned into slush where it lay.
3. Over the space of several hours there was a dramatic drop in temperature. The slush froze on all the branches. Several more inches of snow fell. And then came the killer:
4. Blustery winds, lasting through much of the night and into the next day.
Throughout the rest of the night trees crashed onto the roads and power lines. I’m not sure if they made any sound — there may well have been no one there to hear them — but there were electric wires a-plenty beneath them. And so the lights went out.

In 19 out of Mongolia’s 21 provinces, disaster areas had been declared, with then losses amounting to approximately three percent of the country’s roughly 44 million livestock. Many more losses were expected.
More recently, a Sky News team visited the area and came back with a story of «the worst winter in 30 years», with the reported death of one and a half million livestock, the weather driving tens of thousands of nomadic herders into the cities as they struggled to survive. Some 400,000 nomads, or 40 percent the herding population, in a country of 2.3 million people, were severely affected.
Latterly, aid agencies have been warning that up to 20 million farm animals may die before the spring, and in some areas, herds have almost completely been wiped out.
Before the 1999-2002 cycle, previous Dzud cycles have been in 1944-45, 1967-68 and 1978-79. In 1944, 32.2 percent or 8.76 million of domestic livestock were killed. Also, 2.6 million (11.9 percent) livestock died in the 1967-68 Dzud. In the 1999-2002 cycle, more than 25 per cent of the total livestock was lost, but this current weather could be even worse.
