Fight Against Maturity

It may be hard to convince Europeans of global warming

More than 160 people were stranded in their vehicles overnight in Germany after heavy snowfall brought a motorway along the Baltic Coast to a standstill.

Rescue crews had to use snow ploughs to push through 2m (78in) drifts to free the travelers, among them 19 children.

Hundreds more were stranded at airports as dozens of flights were canceled, and rail and ferry services were cut.

Elsewhere in Europe, some 80,000 people were left without electricity in Poland after snow damaged power lines.

Lots more at BBC News – Germany suffers more snow misery.
