Next Victim of Global Warming: Japan

What is cold, white, flaky and missing in Japan this winter?


According to Japan's Meteorological Agency, for the first time since records began in 1867, downtown Tokyo has had a winter with no snow. In fact, this is Japan's warmest winter ever.

And it is not only Tokyo that is suffering. Winter festivals across Japan have been canceled due to insufficient snow.

And a few time zones to the west, the UK has experienced its warmest year-long period ever, from March 2006 to February 2007. That is since 1659, when temperature records began being officially collected in England.

But I'm sure it has nothing to do with the global warming myth.

Not that I am unsympathetic to global warming, but our friend Jason is over here talking cheese-steak trash about your fellows in Queens.
