Mainstream media doesn't seem to be covering this as much as I thought, as it goes against their Global Warming agenda. But, how about we mix up our tech-related news, with some real-world news, shall we?
For the past fortnight or so, Europe has been stopped in its tracks. A cold snap is responsible for this, stranding people at home, in their cars, resulting in hundreds of deaths, and thousands upon thousands affected. Venice's canals have frozen over, Amsterdam's canals have people ice skating on them, people sledding in Slovenia, and cross-country skiing in Pamplona.
The sad results of this is that the Ukraine has been hit quite hard, resulting in more than 135 deaths, many more have been sent to hospital with hypothermia, massive traffic havoc and have left several Bosnia-based villages completely cut off from the outside world. These things are not reported on your TV as much as they should be.
Ukraine's Ministry of Emergencies announced the death toll this week (135), and temperatures of minus 33-degrees Celcius (minus 27-degrees Fahrenheit). Neighbouring countries Russia and Poland have reported 64 and 9 deaths, respectively.
