  1. Kinda puts things in perspective when you realise that the world mouth-piece, the BBC, will only broadcast a news article about 90 people dying if its a mine disaster, tornado, plane crash, tsunami, or terrorist attack. A natural disaster caused by severe cold is hidden from public eyes…and we know why don’t we folks?
    Happy Christmas Robert and everyone else who regularly reads this oasis of evidence, truth and logic called ‘Ice Age Now’.

  2. if America had 02 provable cold/weather related deaths theyd be screaming blue murder
    and still saying it was warming what dun it;-/

  3. What happened? I thought we were told 14 years ago that kids won’t know what cold air and snow will feel like??? And that was for the USA and Europe – not India. These scumbags who said that should be in prison for life.
