New Year Brings Deadly COLD Worldwide

The empirical evidence associated with GLOBAL COOLING has piled on over the past several years, even while alarmists refuse to acknowledge it, or--laughably and ironically--they chalk all the cold weather up TO global warming (i.e., climate change revisionism). Here, the DEADLY cold weather is attacking AROUND THE WORLD, including India (again)!

Yep. In warmer periods of our history--like the Medieval Warm Period (which alarmists want you to forget about)--humans have prospered, while cold is far more deadly.
