The latest victim is the United States, which until recently was proud of its big, corn-fed families, but discovered last year that the economic crisis and constricted immigration have pushed its average family size down to 1.9 children, below the 2.1 needed for population stability.
Articles: Global Warming Believers March in D.C.
On, February 17th, a very chilly and windy Sunday afternoon, the big guns of global warming activism gathered with their true believer followers in a park adjacent to the Washington Monument. Several speakers estimated the crowd at 35,000 to 40,000, as did the Nation magazine. The Huffington Post mentioned 40,000. I made my own estimate. On the march to the White House the line stretched along Constitution Avenue from 15th street to 17th street, a distance of 1500 feet. I generously estimated 50 people every 20 feet. This totals to less than 4000 people. The organizers of political demonstrations always exaggerate the size of the crowd, but a factor of 10 is extreme inflation.

THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper shows Arctic temperatures were warmer than the present multiple times over past 1357 years
A paper published today in Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology reconstructs temperatures from shells in the North Iceland region of the Arctic Sea over the past 1357 years. The paper demonstrates that temperatures at the end of the record in the year 2000 were not unusual or unprecedented, and were warmer than the present during at least 4 periods over the past 1357 years. Despite claims of climate alarmists that the Arctic should be the first to display a 'fingerprint' of alleged man-made global warming, this new paper adds to many other peer-reviewed papers demonstrating that there is nothing unusual, unnatural, or unprecedented regarding present temperatures in the Arctic.
