Governments are working on the wrong problem.
Internationally the governments are trying to solve the problem of climate control. How can we control the temperature of the world? Annually we see many weather related deaths. A very high percentage of these death come from exposure or extreme cold. The problems noted in the Northeast illustrate that cold has many unique ways of causing death. One of the major problems associated with heavy snow is the difficulty in obtaining treatment for health problems that if promptly treated would not cause death but when they occur during a period of time where transportation is not available or transportation is very delayed death can occur.
Step back from the obvious health issues and look only at the weather related economic impact and I would suggest that we are spending our money on the wrong problems. We should be attempting to learn how to live in our environment rather than trying to control it.
