  1. I think, that such weather events reflect weakening of the Gulf Stream. The mass media tries to assure the public, that this wave of cold is the last of the season. But today we had -28C in the location, where I work, – not far from the town of Chekhov, Moscow Region. It looked like typical January!

  2. I keep seeing these articles claiming the Gulf Stream is moving more slowly than it has in the past 1000 years and how the slow down will create “global warming.” So where is it? It will NOT create warming but drastic cooling! How can people believe it will create warming? I actually know a few people who are buying the warming hype and I just laugh and walk away. Poor souls just don’t have a clue of the stark reality that is dawning.
