The polar vortex that descended over Brooklyn on Tuesday pushed temperatures down to a record-breaking 2 degrees, according to the iconic Watchtower sign. It was the coldest day in the borough in 118 years, shattering the 1896 record of 6 degrees like an icicle.

Reasonable discourse

John Wasserman from Prospect Heights says:
Pardon me for suggesting, but is it wise to trust those folks running the Watchtower to report on the "weather?"

After all, and I do believe I am correct in saying this, they are the ones who predict the end of the world will come and only 144,000 folks will be "saved." Again, and excuse me for saying so, they might not be the best with "numbers."

Steven Rosenberg from Park Slope says:
Mr. Wasserman, you are a moron. And separately, I am sure this non-august publication's editors and writers are immune to the possibility that "climate change" is a fraud and a sham that snowballed due to it's ability to extract money from taxpayers and other sources.

John Wasserman from Prospect Heights says:
Mr. Steven Rosenberg, I believe you misspelled in your last post. Perhaps, and you'll excuse me for suggesting this, you meant to type Mormon.

Alas, I am not, as you suggested with perhaps too quick a finger and failure to spell check, a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints, but I do thank you for your continued reading.

However, if I were a Mormon, I might add, I would likely not be one of the favored 144,000. But, and you'll forgive me for pondering this deep thought further, but since you suggested it, perhaps I'd be so lucky. I guess we'll have to wait patiently to see.

Yes, Steven Rosenberg...
What other possibilities would you like to bring to our attention? How the illuminati/freemasons are pulling all of the strings? How the HAARP ionospheric research station run by the University of Alaska is a secret weapon to control the weather and control society? What about chemtrails?

Chicken Little from Atlantic says:
"It is now pretty clearly agreed that the C02 content will rise 25% by 2000. This could increase the average temperature near the earth' s surface by 7 degrees Fahrenheit. This in turn could raise the level of the sea by 10 feet. Goodbye New York.
Goodbye Washington, for that matter. We have no data on Seattle."
