Global Warming Update

This just in from the Cheat-Seeking Missiles Global Warming Debate Is Over Desk:
More than 750 people have perished as a result of severe cold and heavy snowfalls this winter across Afghanistan, a government official said on Saturday.

The cold spell, the worst in decades in the impoverished and mountainous central Asian country, has also killed nearly 230,000 cattle, said Noor Padshah Kohistani of the National Disaster Management Commission. (source)

More than 500 homes have been destroyed, roads have been closed, and authorities say the livestock loss will have longstanding economic repercussions on rural villages.

This story, like so many others, will be filed under "the debate is over."
