Record Cold

From the BBC: “Almost 250 children under the age of five have died in a wave of intensely cold weather in Peru.” “This year, freezing temperatures have arrived almost 3 months earlier than usual.” From CBS news: “Temperatures dropped to a record low in Prince Edward Island overnight Tuesday (July 7-8) with reports of frost throughout the province.” In Cincinnati:   The month of July is already running around 135 degrees below normal and based on my (Rich Apuzzo, Cincinnati Weather Examiner) forecast through the weekend, we’ll be more than 200 degrees below normal by Sunday and heading for an all-time record cold July! New Zealand had the coldest May on record.

The Potato Famine disease (Late Blight) is striking potato and tomato plants from Maine to Ohio and it’s threatening commercial and organic farms according to Reuters news, and according to Meg McGrath, a plant pathologist at Cornell University’s extension center in New York, “Late Blight has never occurred this early and this widespread in the United States.”  The destructive disease can spread rapidly in cool, moist weather, infecting an entire field within days.  The bottom line, which is causing me increasing concern every day, is that we’re seeing much colder weather in both hemispheres and its effects on humans and agriculture.

All this from an article by Rich Apuzzo of the examiner,com. Algore had a fifty-fifty chance when he picked global warming for the scare to fuel his evil plot to rule the world, and he screwed it up.
