    NRO has a post that might be worth reporting on, headlined:
    Global warming strikes the Olympics….. it’s might be too cold!
    For the female volleyball players to wear bikinis…
    We have to do something, before it’s too late!!
    Right, lets start massive CO2 dumping if that’s possible; lets run our cars and air conditioners and waffle makers night and day to make sure it warms up quick… Oh, wait, that’s not going to do any good: (click my name for -the- key video on CO2).

    1921 was pretty grim in Italy as well:
    DROUGHT IN ITALY. WORST FOR CENTURIES.
    LONDON, Jan. 1.
    A message from Rome states that the drought in Northern Italy is the worst for three centuries. It is affecting undertakings dependent on water power, compelling them to restrict their output. In Milan electric lighting has been reduced, and the theatres are closing two nights each week to economise light.”
