D.C. Approves Fines for People Who Don't Shovel Snow

Here is what is on Mann’s facebook:


Let’s just remind ourselves what we were told fourteen years ago by the likes of Mann:

20 March 2000: Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past 

According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.

“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.

And in other news in the District of Columbia

Nov 19, 2014: District of Columbia approve bill to fine homeowners & businesses who don’t shovel walks within eight daylight hours after a storm.

Democratic Council member Mary Cheh who sponsored the bill, said it will prevent senior citizens and disabled people “from being stranded in their homes.”
