Nearly 1,000 people have died in heavy snowstorms and severe cold during the harshest winter to hit Afghanistan in 30 years, the disaster authority said Saturday.
More 130,000 livestock have also died and hundreds of homes destroyed or damaged by the heavy snowfalls, an official at the National Disaster Management Authorities said.
“Now we know that 926 people have been killed. Over 200 other people have been wounded in cold and other related incidents such as avalanches and snowstorms,” said Ahmad Shkeb Hamraz.
If Al Gore can point to a single event like the Myanmar cyclone to support his case that the planet is warming, why can’t I point to an entire winter weather pattern as evidence that the planet is cooling?
