Ice Ice Baby

BBC NEWS | World | Asia-Pacific | Warming fears for China ice show

A famous ice festival in China, that attracts tens of thousands of tourists, appears to be the latest victim of rising global temperatures. ...But higher local temperatures mean that even in January the midday sun starts to melt many of the sculptures.

Global or local? Harbin's population is officially 10 million with about 4 million living in the city proper, making Harbin China's 8th largest city. Couldn't be local could it, must be us here not using low wattage flicker bulbs..


I have been to Harbin & it was certain cold enough when I was there. About -30 I seem to recall. I am delighted to read the Family FM's Landrovers are helping the good citizens enjoy a better climate
