Miller pokes fun at 'bad guy' Gore - Patrick Gavin -
“He’s a bad guy,” said Miller. “Ethically speaking, he makes John Edwards look like Sir Thomas Moore, at least Edwards was just a horndog. This guy is an absolutely genius at rationalization. Imagine — the Rube Goldbergian contraption he has put up inside — that thin little pea pod he calls his brain casing to be allowed to think that he, at the vanguard of the green movement, can do business with Big Oil like this. How does Gore sleep at night, other than, you know, eating a bag of donuts and hooking himself up to an I.V. of Yoohoo and nodding off in a sugar coma.”

[What with all this talk of sickness linked with cold weather, are we still really sure that increased sickness should be linked with slightly warmer weather?] The country is in the grip of three emerging flu or flulike epidemics: an early start to the annual flu season with an unusually aggressive virus; a surge in a new type of norovirus; and the worst whooping cough outbreak in 60 years — all against the backdrop of the normal winter highs for the many viruses that cause symptoms on the “colds and flu" spectrum.
That outbreak is worst in cold-weather states, including Colorado, Washington, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Vermont.

Isn’t the inescapable suspicion that our national forecaster was anxious not to shake confidence in its Messianic belief that we are destroying our own planet?
Cold in China kills about 180,000 cattle, threatens power
The weather has also exposed a decades-old debate about the lack of heating in south China. A line drawn in the 1950s split China into a northern half that built and still enjoys heavily subsidized public heating, and a southern half that shivers through winter without a public heating network and must make do with private, often less effective, heating devices.
