    Deadly cold weather continues in Europe - MarketWatch

    Vehicles drive through blizzards near the Lehliu railway station, 45 miles east of Bucharest.The storm, which swept in from Siberia, has killed more than 200 people..

    NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — Unusually cold weather, plunging temperatures to 31 degrees below zero in some areas, is expected to continue sweeping across Europe in coming days after causing hundreds of deaths in Eastern Europe and air-traffic delays in London and elsewhere.

    January has been the ninth-snowiest month since 1966 for Europe and Asia, though for the entire northern hemisphere, it’s been about average for snow this season, according to Associated Press.

    London’s Heathrow Airport, Europe’s busiest, cancelled half its flights Sunday, officials said. London’s Gatwick Airport received less snow and as of Sunday planned to run all scheduled flights.

    In Ukraine, freezing temperatures have killed at least 131 people during the nine-day cold spell, many of them homeless, while the death toll in Poland reached 53, reports said.

    Gee it was only two weeks ago that the unseasonably warm weather was proof positive of global warming.

    European death toll in the 2003 heat wave, 35,000+.

    One of the primary predictions of global warming, coming true in spades for the last few years, "Weather swings that are wider and wilder, with an overall warming trend".

    Yeah Ray......but alot of other predictions fell on their face taking all credibility away on the "wilder weather swing" claims. Seen now as just a talking point for those pushing the alarmist view.
