When Winter Feels Like Summer

Winter in Manchester

EVERY MORNING I wake up to an unknown weather; I do get my forecast from the command line, but it’s not always reliable. There’s also reliably-aggregated (historical) data; or data points that, no matter one’s views on the subject of global warming, speak for themselves.

Extreme weather is becoming more frequent. Sometimes the poles ‘travel’ down south and the poles themselves can heat up like never before; there’s a lot more to it than melting icecaps (media likes to focus on sea levels) because unpredictable weather and erratic seasonal patterns harm farmers and crops, threatening famine (or soaring food prices); this makes mass migration and war more likely. Probably more likely than rising sea levels (this can cause floods and stronger storms, like the ones just experienced in the US south, notable for their fatalities).

War, suffice to say, further contributes to warming, especially if and when nuclear weapon are used, not just produced.

The above photo was taken in February back when the temperature reached nearly 20 here. Yes, 20 in Manchester. In February. That’s winter.

I’ve lived in this city for nearly 20 years. Last month was the first time I bought fans.

Manchester City is Now Very Well Positioned to Break More Records

Manchester City's Pep

Yesterday, for the first time in months, Manchester City returned to the top of the league’s table (and not because it had played an extra game). The team is now in a good position to secure a third trophy, the most prestigious of all (league/PL), and is well positioned to advance further in the Champions League too. What remains other than those two prestigious cups is the FA Cup, which has no major teams left it in except Manchester United and Manchester City. So this can be another interesting year with Manchester taking all the trophies (Community Shield included) and maybe Manchester City alone will net them. It also seems increasingly likely that the northwest (England) will secure the top 3 spots in the league for the second year in a row.

At the start of the season it seemed highly improbable that Manchester City would break yet more important records; it never won a Champions League either; didn’t even reach the final. Time will tell what can happen (over the next 3 months)…

It is a good time to be a Manchester City fan and Manchester United too seems to have found solid new leadership.

The Man Who Burned Chelsea Manning is Bossed by Chelsea Clinton. Nowadays His Articles Are Anti-Wikileaks Tripe.

Poulsen made a name for himself by burning Bradley (now Chelsea) Manning. How can this conflict in media be overlooked? Unless it is a political apparatus.
