7th February - Today's News: Floods Follow Freeze in Eastern Europe

Greece declares emergency in flood hit north whilst there are floods in Bulgaria: evacuation of district in Svilengrad after dam bursts in Bulgaria, 8 killed in floods. So far, the European cold snap toll tops 360.

And, signifiantly, it would appear that "no attempt is made to quantify the potential benefits or the risks involved in the likely disruption of weather patterns on earth."
