New Delhi: More than 100 people have died of exposure to severe cold weather and carbon monoxide poisoning over the past two weeks in Afghanistan. According to a report in Tolo News, the State Ministry for Disaster Management said on Sunday that the deaths have happened in 15 provinces. The report further added, “At least 104 people have died in various provinces. At least 50 houses have been damaged or destroyed,” said Shafay Rahimi, a spokesman for the ministry. CORRECTIONS*

Comments:

Is there a global cold wave on the way? Did IPCC misunderstand climate? Those investing in global warming have a billion-dollar reason to lie about it and plenty of blankets in case it happens. But. Many others would like the question examined.

Easy solution to the freezing Afghans crisis - - fly them all to Davos - - on private jets. The only place where it's cold in Davos - - is the ice cubes under the shrimp and lobster buffet.

This could become a reality in the good 'ol USA in the next 5-10 years as the sun continues to sink into a decade or three slumber, or a Grand Solar Minimum (GSM). Apparently the Solar Constant used in calculations ain't constant enough to prevent general cooling, if not a sudden drop in temperatures over most of the planet. The deaths that will happen with this cooling will likely be many times more than what they would've been without the meddling of the greenie-weenie cabal (bedwetters all), the globalists swine, grand solar idiots like alboor, lurch and the "eminent" James Hansen (who has been wrong more often?) with their grandly delusional machinations consisting of wind turbines and electric everything, not to mention fairy dust and unicorn farts. Hopefully everyone will remember the folks listed above, amongst others, if this cooling does come about, and they receive their just deserts.

I'm always skeptical of weather deaths. So many have died in the flood, that many in the hurricane, and there are deaths in the cold. Well, news media gotta have drama.

Can we lose the carbon monoxide deaths from weather related? They are invariably ignorance and poorly designed and executed combustion. Don't run the generator in the living room.

The solution to this is to get off fossil fuels entirely. Problem solved! In all seriousness, if they follow through on the elimination of fossil fuels, there would be millions of deaths in poor countries.

Carbon monoxide poisoning. When we lived in the CA high desert decades ago, there were multiple casualties almost every winter. Using BBQs etc for heat, windows taped shut.

Kevin McCarthy came up short once again on Thursday as he lost the seventh House vote to elect a new speaker. The outcome will only increase pressure on McCarthy to end the impasse over his imperiled speakership bid, but it is unclear whether he will be able to pull it off as the situation grows increasingly dire for his future political prospects. The House is moving to hold an eighth vote.

Two police officers were killed, two more wounded and prison guards taken hostage Tuesday in the latest wave of attacks in a deadly gang war consuming Ecuador, authorities said. Officials said "organized crime" groups responded to the transfer of detainees from the Guayas 1 prison with nine attacks using explosives and firearms. The prison, in the southwestern port city of Guayaquil, is one of the main scenes of a series of bloody prison massacres that have left about 400 inmates dead since February 2021.

Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk, says he plans a “content moderation council” and will not reinstate any accounts or make major content decisions before it is convened. In May 2022, after Musk agreed to buy Twitter at $54.20 per share, he said he would reverse Twitter’s lifetime ban on former President Donald Trump if the acquisition went through. Today, Trump praised Musk for taking over Twitter. The former president previously said he would not return to the platform, but it remains to be seen if he will now that the company is run by Musk.

The world’s richest man wants the West to more seriously consider the risk of nuclear conflict and World War III breaking out over Ukraine, as Russia’s hold over Crimea—illegally annexed by Russia in 2014—is thrown into question. “If Russia is faced with the choice of losing Crimea or using battlefield nukes, they will choose the latter,” Elon Musk wrote in a tweet on Monday. He continued: “We’ve already sanctioned/cutoff Russia in every possible way, so what more do they have left to lose? If we nuke Russia back, they will nuke us and then we have WW3.”

When Dashi Ergys was shot to death in an upscale Guayaquil restaurant in January, the media provided little information about him other than that he was Albanian. Despite the fact that he appeared to be specially targeted, many people assumed he was a tourist who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. It was more than a month later that a National Police commander revealed in comments during a radio interview that Ergys was under investigation for drug trafficking and that he was probably part of an Albanian mafia operating in Guayaquil, Manta and Esmeraldas, involved in shipping illegal drugs to Europe.

Biden will get backlash from Republicans whether he does a little or a lot – so you might as well do a lot olitics is not like regular life; it’s worse. Things that are held as treasured virtues in the normal world are often political liabilities. We’ve all just been served with a shining example of how reflexive moderation – which is good when estimating measurements for recipes, or having drinks at a work party – becomes the tendency of a political fool. The wellbeing of countless Americans has long been sacrificed on the altar of moderation by the Democratic party, and all the Democrats win for it is maximal disgust.

Billions of dollars worth of U.S. weapons are on the negotiating table between Russian strongman Vladimir Putin and Afghanistan’s Taliban government, according to at least one insider. Presidentish Joe Biden’s bungled bugout from Afghanistan resulted in a windfall for the new radical Islamic government, including artillery, attack helicopters, and thousands of HUMVEES, machine guns, radios — all left behind as our orderly withdrawal degenerated into a rout. The Department of Defense estimates the total value of the gear Biden left behind at a whopping $7.12 billion, and now Putin is reportedly offering to buy whatever he and the battered Russian Army need.

When Joe Biden was a US senator he referred to himself as “one of the poorest members” of Congress. But his fortunes rose precipitously following his years as vice-president, thanks to a flurry of cash from book deals and speeches — as well as regular kickbacks from his brother and youngest son, according to text messages from Hunter Biden’s laptop and a congressional probe. In 2016, his last year as vice-president, “middle class Joe” reported between $291,000 and about $1 million in assets and income outside his vice-presidential salary of $230,700.
