When the white smoke goes up, who will lead the Church? My front-runners [among others]: Cardinal George Pell, of Australia: He’d be a great choice for the English-speaking world and would easily become another no-nonsense media star. –Louise Mensch, The Sun, 13 February 2013
Snow - Too much of a good thing? 23 ft
Road and lift closures. Evacuations and residents confined to their homes.

The storms that have brought over 7 meters (23 feet) of snow to the Pyrenees since the New Year don’t seem to be putting a smile on ski resort director’s faces.

Quite the opposite in fact. Some are asking if they were not better off with last season’s snow drought.
Skeptical Science: Lukewarmerism, a.k.a. Ignoring Inconvenient Evidence
Ultimately the "lukewarmers" may be right, climate sensitivity may be on the lower end of the range of possible values, and maybe we will have sufficient time to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions enough to prevent catastrophic climate change.
