Record Cold

Record cold in China.

China is experiencing unusual chills this winter with its national average temperature hitting the lowest in 28 years, and snow and ice have closed highways, canceled flights, stranded tourists and knocked out power in several provinces.

China Meteorological Administration on Friday said the national average was -3.8 degrees Celsius (25 degrees Fahrenheit) since late November, the coldest in nearly three decades.

Record Cold in India.

More than 100 people have died of exposure as northern India deals with historically cold temperatures.

Police spokesman Surendra Srivastava said Thursday that at least 114 people have died from the recent cold in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Many were poor people whose bodies were found on sidewalks or in parks.

The weather department said temperatures were 7 to 18 degrees F below average in the state.

Record cold in Bulgaria.

Four temperature records were registered Thursday morning by Bulgaria’s national weather service, as a cold wave gripped the country.

The coldest location and one of the temperature records is the western city of Kyustendil with -19 degrees Centigrate, said the National Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology.

The other three records were registered at the central town of Kazanlak (-14.8 C), south-western city of Blagoevgrad (-13.5 C), and north-western city of Montana (-11.8 C).

Record cold in Russia.

The coldest ever December has rolled through Russia causing the evacuation of hundreds of people in Siberia, where temperature hit below -50C, and plunging Moscow into its coldest night in the season. Will Christmas lift the frosty spell?

The cold weather that has Russia in its icy embrace has been causing all kinds of havoc. Flights and buses delayed and cancelled, many schools have been closed, and there have been power outages just when power is most needed.

    That’s why Gore sold current tv.
    He knows it’s all BS.
    Figured he’d better get some cash out of it to pay his electric bills

    Eye-on-the-ball, folks!
    Unconfirmed reports from Mexican national truck drivers and deliverers of services (food, etc) have said they saw chinese produced trucks of differing sizes amassed in and around Nuevo Laredo, across the border from Laredo TX.

    With all this Legislative and Administrative Kabuki theatrics and smoke-and-mirrors going on, everything this administration and Congress wants, does and says, merits keeping a watchful eye out for out-and-out prevarications, subterfuges and plain out-and-out lying. Remember, nobody even had heard about Chinese ownership of Long Beach, CA shipyard building purchases by a Chinese consortium…and subsequent sales of AK-47’s to Oakland gangs. Pray. Amen.

    Sorry to keep on hammering upon this matter, but is of major concern because seems to corroborate above story of Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, serving as a staging area for military hardware amassed across from Laredo, TX. Texas’ south western frontier with Mexico.

    About this administration and US Congress = We The Elite People of culture of corruption in Washington DC. One wouldn’t put it past Putin and newly “appointed” Chinese Premier to collude with Obama and cohorts (in corrupt Washington DC) to “if We The Elite People in Washington DC” not being able to do away with the US Constitution, legally, then we’ll do it by force!!!!

    Recall, this American “We The Elite People” in corrupt Washington DC are definitely gearing-up for a civil war. They’re literally shakin’-in-their-boots. Pray. Amen. They’ll make a deal with the Devil to keep their 1)greed, 2) power and 3) corruption.

      Messup – Following the link you provided, and the subsequent links, I found myself at a story which was written in MAR, 2011.

      Two years of staging for invasion, while not impossible, would make it the longest buildup in the history of modern warfare.

      I also feel like there would be alot more people who were aware of such a long-standing preparation for invasion.

      I have a couple Marine friends who come from that part of Mexico. I don’t think their families would see 10,000 APC’s and 100,000 Chinese troops and not say something.

      If I’m wrong, you’re doing a great service by warning folks, but this seems a bit to kooky to me. It smacks of an impossibly stupid plan to me. The Chinese play the long-game. This leaves them open to being discovered.

      Anyway, that’s my tuppence.

        Okay, I can’t let this drop, just yet…

        Why would an enemy spend years building up for an invasion in an area with very small population per square mile or notable strategic value?

        Not only that, but it’s on the border of a state with arguably, the most independent, heavily armed citizens on the planet, and it’s a stone’s throw from CCNAS, and 6 hours from the largest Army Fort in the nation, and 2 hours flight time from the A-10’s & B-52’s of Barksdale AFB. That’s far enough to allow the US to respond with the best-trained, best equipped fighting force on planet earth.

        Such an ill-conceived plan would quickly hand China the loss of 100,000 highly-trained troops and endangering their mainland through the application of our forces in Korea, Japan, Afghanistan, and the rest of the Middle East & SE Asia.

        Not gonna happen.
