Climate change is happening again. Spring to summer, summer to fall, and fall to winter. Global freezing temperatures has put global warming on ice – literally. February 14, 2021 President Biden issued a Federal Emergency Declaration for Texas. Extreme cold weather, ice and snow resulted in all 254 counties being put under a Winter Storm Warning. Even the southern most counties along the Mexico border. We may be under a global cooling or Little Ice Age period as the military is now being called on in the hot state of Texas to deal with global freezing.
Power grids are out in many U. S. cities adding to the death and destruction of vehicular accidents. Over 3 million people have been out of power in Texas alone. On February 16, 2021 several cities saw record low temps with many more on the way.
