  1. Coldest winter in 1,000 years on its way

    After the record heat wave this summer, Russia's weather seems to have acquired a taste for the extreme.

    The change is reportedly connected with the speed of the Gulf Stream, which has shrunk in half in just the last couple of years. Polish scientists say that it means the stream will not be able to compensate for the cold from the Arctic winds. According to them, when the stream is completely stopped, a new Ice Age will begin in Europe.

    So far, the results have been lower temperatures: for example, in Central Russia, they are a couple of degrees below the norm.

    “Although the forecast for the next month is only 70 percent accurate, I find the cold winter scenario quite likely,” Vadim Zavodchenkov, a leading specialist at the Fobos weather center, told RT. “We will be able to judge with more certainty come November. As for last summer's heat, the statistical models that meteorologists use to draw up long-term forecasts aren't able to predict an anomaly like that.”

    In order to meet the harsh winter head on, Moscow authorities are drawing up measures to help Muscovites survive the extreme cold.

    Most of all, the government is concerned with homeless people who risk freezing to death if the forecast of the meteorologists come true. Social services and police are being ordered to take the situation under control even if they have to force the homeless to take help.

    Moscow authorities have also started checking air conditioning systems in all socially important buildings. All the conditioners are being carefully cleaned from the remains of summer smog.

    especially since he said, on losing the election to Pres Bush,
    ''God works in mysterious ways'' What is mysterious about him losing that election??

    Many of the people that count, including the supreme court simply did not want the ''internet inventor LOL'' to be Pres.:cool:

    And now it's warmer than usual. Damn, they should come up with a concept that would help us differentiate between local conditions, and global conditions.

    The most irksome thing though, is... what to drink? With the shortening of days, ordinarily I'd turn to cognac, but with this heat, I think I should be drinking beer. Stressful!

    The fact that he won the popular vote. The fact that more actual voters wanted him to be president than Bush, and given what happened afterwards, their instincts were flawless. The Electoral College is an abomination that should have been thrown out along with slavery. In 2000, Wyoming had one electoral for every 181,000 people, while California had one electoral vote for every 616,000 people. On what planet is that fair representation?
  10. Hello
