The original headline called it a “cold snap.”

Police say more than 100 people have died of exposure as northern India deals with historically cold temperatures.

Police spokesman Surendra Srivastava said on Thursday at least 114 people have died from the cold in the state of Uttar Pradesh, at least 23 of them in the previous 24 hours.

The weather department said temperatures in the state were 4 to 10 degrees below normal.

Temperatures in New Delhi, which borders Uttar Pradesh, hit a high on Wednesday of 9.8 degrees Celsius, the lowest maximum temperature in the capital since 1969.

    I wonder if the economy fascist cult and the useless IPCC have temp stations in Delhi, Siberia, Northern china, Korea, or in locales outside of US urban heat sinks…..maybe they can manipulate more tree ring data to ‘prove’ the lie of the hockey stick nonsense…..In the real world cold records are being set every year and mean temps are falling.
