 "Japan Snowstorm Kills 12, Strands Thousands of Motorists"

This follows on my comment about people wanting to stop global warming, but not stopping to think what the alternative is. Probably a good time to head over there to ski though.

A severe snowstorm sweeping across Japan has killed 12 people and left more than 1,650 injured, Japanese media reported, as the extreme weather sparked widespread transport chaos.

At least a dozen people have died in snow-related incidents in seven prefectures after the storm broke records, with Tokyo blanketed in 27 centimetres of snow, according to the Kyodo news agency.

A further 2,150 people have been evacuated from their homes over fears the weight of the snow would cause their houses to collapse, public broadcaster NHK said.

    Jim-Good write up, but posting about solitary events does little for objectively gauging the “big picture” what about the terrible drought in California? One data point does not a trend make.

    Take care,

    The typical projection for global warming scenario is more volatile weather, not uniformly warmer.
