BEIJING – A northern China port that is one of the world's largest was facing the worst ice conditions in 30 years Saturday, and icebreaking ships were working to keep the path to it open.

Some ships were having trouble reaching the port at Tianjin — the port for China's capital, Beijing, and the third largest in the country, China Central Television said. Footage showed ships on the Bohai Gulf working to keep shipping lanes open.

About 40 people had already been saved from ships in danger from the ice, the state-run Xinhua News Agency cited maritime officials as saying.

The region has been hit by its worst winter weather in decades over the past week, including Beijing's coldest morning in almost 40 years and its biggest snowfall since 1951.

Temperatures over the next week in Beijing are forecast to remain below freezing.

The sea ice along the coast of the Bohai Gulf was the most serious in 30 years, China National Radio reported Saturday afternoon.

China's transport minister, Li Shenglin, urged authorities to work to prevent accidents, Xinhua reported.

In 2008, the Tianjin port was among the top 15 in the world in container handling, according to the Web site of its operator, Tianjin Port Development Holdings Ltd. The port 60 miles southeast of Beijing has a sprawling export zone designed to spur the region's growth.

The past week of bitter cold already has hit China's power companies, with officials ordering rotating shutdowns of hundreds of factories in central provinces to ensure sufficient power to heat homes.

Not necessarily...as with their argument, one event or even several events don't make it so. Climate has occurred forever...we have only been tracking it for a very short time. Us saying this and several other events, like this winter does not really support shit...which is the point. But, it's still nice to see these stories being reported isn't it? It makes liberals go nuts and that is always a good thing to see!!!

Our atmosphere is a fluid with weather conditions floating, pushed by pressure systems. Pressure systems are at best impossible to predict more than a week in advance. The northern and southern "jet streams" tend to make boundries between higher and lower temperatures but the jet streams meander around pressure systems with warmer and colder air masses following.
Computer models are the product of someones imagination, just like the computer games kids play. They can make the computer model produce any results they want, just like the outcome of a kid's game.
As long as the fanatic warmists have unfettered access to the news outlets they will continue to propagandize weather news.

Let's see

the worlds climate has been in a constant flux for 100's of billions of years and it's estimated that the human population contributes around .01% to this. Yea let's all panic now. The science is horse shit on this.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!

It's about control, by the government...it's straight out of Saul Alinsky's book...how liberals will take over.
