  1. But you have to remember, all this fits the possibilities shown by the global warming computer models, so this definitely isn’t an indication of global cooling. Well, that’s what they say. Did you know their model also predicts that 14% of all humans will wear soiled underwear at sometime during the next 12 months? Maybe.

  2. sales of winter clothing and emergency supplies will pick up after this early warning I hope. even tiny 1 litre of kerosine and a few lamps is easy enough to keep handy, being cold is bad enough, cold and dark is worse.
