In North and Central China, to almost down to the subtropical east coast, ice and snow, the west appears virtually ice-free only the Takla Makan, which, however, has a unique special climate.
Consider that we write only the beginning of the month of February, such ice extent in the northern hemisphere - the so from the fortieth degree of latitude relatively much more land mass measured at sea over the higher latitudes of the Southern Hemisphere brings - readily to be breakout due for a while could result in self-reinforcing seasonal slowdown, with more ice and snow and low temperatures.
In particularly unfavorable case could, what would be the most fatal, result in an extremely late, but then huge, accompanied by rain snow melt not only to violent floods, but mainly to the fact that millions of square kilometers of the best arable land are so long under water, that in this year can not be managed.
Then the food is really expensive, because for clarification: On this Eisschiene There are the major grain exporters in the world.
But let's not equal black or even Al Gore see: The Winter 83/84/85 I still icy in memory. (more ...)
