At least 37 people were killed in the prolonged winter storm over the Christmas weekend.
Hundreds of thousands were without power on Christmas Day.
This is more than the number of deaths caused by global warming – climate change combined this past year.
The existential threat of “global warming” is yet to claim a life in the continental United States.
Democrats are using global warming to fundamentally change America into a struggling country with unpredictable power grids and soaring energy prices.
The prolonged winter storm that brought heavy snow, high winds and brutal cold to most of the US this past week has killed at least 37 people and had hundreds of thousands without power on Christmas morning.
Perhaps the worst impact was around Buffalo, New York, where 43 inches of snow fell as of Sunday morning, according to the National Weather Service. The snowfall and blizzard conditions made roads impassable, froze power substations and left more than a dozen people dead, Erie County officials said.
The conditions eased slightly on Sunday, allowing emergency responders to get out and see the extent of the problem.
“I don’t want to say that this is going to be it because that would be a fallacy for me to say that, because we know that there are people who have been stuck in cars for more than two days,” Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz said Sunday. “There are people in homes who are below freezing temperatures.”
