Global warming – 2nd winter

Winter 2011/2012 ago I remember a usual February with its -30 even -35 Celsium. 1 meter of snow. It was always normal. Snow in Aluksne usually melts only in April. Snow covers the earh here for 5 months from November until April.

It began last winter, when there was no decent snow layer until even end of January. Then came usual weather with quite permament -20 until end of February, when all the snow melted.

This year we have a bit more snow, but there was no -20 C. This is notable exception. Yesterday atmosphere temperature in Latvia hit February records with +4 C.

This is not normal. Something is going on.

I must admit, that it is quite comfortable for us latvians. Country inhabitants save on heating and animal feed. I wonder, if such weather abnormalities later lead to unpleasant consequences. So I hold on to my plans to lessen consumption. Consumption, I suppose, is the root cause of the so called “Global Warming”. The more I buy, the more I support industry with it’s emissions, erosions, depletions, corruptions etc.
