      More weather freakiness in the Middle East.I just saw this tidbit on Raw Story.

      A Beirut international airport weather expert said the storm is the worst ever to have hit Lebanon while other met officials in the region said it was the worst in 10 years.

      Media reports said the cold weather originated in Russia, with one daily dubbing the storm “Olga”.

      At least 11 people have reportedly been killed in the region, including a man who froze to death after he fell asleep drunk in his car in Lebanon’s eastern Bekaa Valley and a baby swept away in a flash flood in the centre of the country.

      In the Palestinian territories, officials reported four fatalities since Tuesday, one of them a woman in the southern West Bank village of Jabaa who died from a fire she started in her home to keep warm.

      The storm also took a heavy toll on regional economies.

    •  Humans Are Smart Enough; Traditional Cultures Are (1+ / 0-)

      smart enough. Humans have evolved for several million years through many many times of extreme shortages and hard limitations.

      Our advanced democracies and their systems of rights are far too stupid. They've evolved over the last 1,000 years in the New World age where space, resources and waste capacity only had great surpluses (overall).
