The Great Backerganj Cyclone of 1876 (October 29 – November 1, 1876) was one of the deadliest cyclones in history. It hit the coast of Backerganj (near Meghna estuary) in present-day Barisal, Bangladesh, killing about 200,000 people, half of whom were drowned by the storm surge, and the remainder died in the resultant famine.[1][2]

    The cult priests know their time is over and will self destruct, but all the help we can give adds up.
    Next stop, the media.
    A few years with 6′-9″ Gyro Jerry in cell block C will be quite righteous for these twisted criminals.

    Global warming is now over as judged by this current snapshot of global SST’s.
    Notice the cool anomalies surrounding Nova Scotia. In October, when anomalies there were warm, that was global warming’s signal. Now that those anomalies have become negative is that global cooling’s signal?
