As world leaders meet to discuss global warming, Copenhagen is getting really cold. The Copenhagen Post reports:
More snow could be on the way tomorrow as temperatures are set to drop even further. Bitter cold and steady snowfall has paralyzed the country’s roads and public transport since yesterday, and the icy cold weather is expected to get even worse over the next couple days. On the island of Funen up to a metre of snow fell in some places, while in mid-Jutland several snow plows were reported to be stuck. National train service DSB had delays on nearly all its lines, with delays of up to an hour on some routes. The S-train system and Metro trains serving the Greater Copenhagen area have also experienced considerable delays.
The New York Times reports on a Welsh demonstrator in Copenhagen: “With one bare hand, she clutched the corner of a “Save Our Climate” quilt she had made, and held her coat closed against the cold wind with the other. When a fellow protester walked by and offered her a pair of gloves, she gladly accepted.”
