Your links says nothing of what you state. Weather changes all the time, but that storm was for warned days in advanced. We even got reports about it in Europe that it was developing.This is a lie. I live here in NJ. it was predicted to skirt the coast until 6 hours before it hit. feel free to prove me other wise with links or another poster here from jersey who disagrees.... try CC.

almost every year d00d...... we get a storm like this. /facepalm
24 inches of snow in a day or two is massive. Plus in areas it was much more, and with the wind factor then it gets really bad. So dont play dumb.so you are comparing 24" of snow, to a hurricane, levee break and a huge oil spill?
Plus if it was "normal" snow fall, does that not mean that your state and your leader was incompetent to even deal with that? At least with an unexpected snow fall he has an excuse, but if as you claim it is "normal" then what excuse does he have then for not doing his freaking job? Why did it take so long to clear roads? Why did the state ground to a near halt if it was "normal" snow fall? Why did airlines cancel every flight if it was "normal" snowfall?
And as your own link stated.. a record heat wave.. aka out of the ordinary.. And you statedSeriously?
Plan B Updates - 29: Record Heat Wave in Europe Takes 35,000 Lives - Far Greater Losses May Lie Ahead | EPI
"A record heat wave scorched Europe in August 2003, claiming an estimated 35,000 lives. In France alone"
which clearly says... A French heat wave where 30k people died. That is false. 14802 died in France. Across Europe, from Portugal to Russia, 35k died in the worst heat wave seen for over a century. And again you avoided the fact that the normal summer temperature does not require homes be cooled down by air conditioners and hence most European countries do not have them.i mean it wasn't like a french heat wave where 30k people die because europe is basically a third world nation.
And again, I can not state this enough, we were seeing 100F+ temperatures across Europe in areas that had never seen such high temperatures and these temperatures lasted for weeks. In the Netherlands it reached almost 38 degrees (98ish F) for a considerable amount of time, in a country that barely gets above 30c (86F) during the summer.
So are you telling me that on the off chance that the temperatures once in several centuries may reach insane levels that European houses have to be equipped with air condition? Why dont you answer that? Or will you as usual ignore the obvious?
Actually you were caught out yet again. Your own comments doomed you.I have proven you wrong on both accounts.
