an 5 (Reuters) - Temperatures in China have plunged to their lowest in almost three decades, cold enough to freeze coastal waters and trap 1,000 ships in ice, official media said at the weekend.
Since late November the country has shivered at an average of minus 3.8 degrees Celsius, 1.3 degrees colder than the previous average, and the chilliest in 28 years, state news agency Xinhua said on Saturday, citing the China Meteorological Administration.

What do you call the major shift in climate and the drastic extremes Jeff?
I know its your story and you're sticking to it.

Perhaps the flow of Chinese junk products to the USA will slow down for at least the next couple months.

No this can't be. The climate is warming not getting colder. The eco terrorists will explain this as an effect of "climate change" and that the reason for colder is due to man. The reason for warmer is also due to man. I guess nature is just sitting on the sidelines as man does all the work.

Global warming strikes again. No, wait. Another "inconvenient truth" of scientific evidence against global warming, but that won't stop the movement because it is all political.

This is good news, right? The "greenies" can now close up shop, since the planet is not warming as they have been predicting.

Those are tough conditions for shipping. However, that also means China needs more energy for heating. As an emerging economy, this can place an added burden on their growing power industry. That's more gas, coal, etc. from the worldwide supply..

sillywagon, part of global warming theory predicts higher highs AND lower lows, as well as larger storms,melting ice caps and higher sea levels.. this climate behavior is another affirmation of global warming theory concurred by over 98% of climatologists including those funded by the koch brothers
