    Yes I agree, Teresa.
    But please make a proposal to the Brazilians how they can better expand their economic system than by deforestation and the expansion of agriculture.

    I like the German initiative. Given all the twisted rhetoric from the new Brazilian pres, I bet it hurt his pocket

    Germany is known worldwide for giving good advice to other countries.
    The German government wanted to send 26 million dollars to Brazil to reduce the deforestation of the Brazilian forest.
    But the Brazilian president has refused and has recommended Angela Merkel (German Chancellor) reforest Germany instead of Brazil. :)

    Brazil accelerated deforestation rate under current president. The way I heard it Germany didn't give the money due to blatant non-compliance likely misuse of funds and witheld this year's incentive. The fund was witheld not refused.

    Yes, Teresa, but main reason to keep back the money is that Brazilian president doesn't want to stop deforestation due to increase Brazilian economy.
    German government wants to save nature in foreign countries. In Germany it is very difficult due to industrialization of Germany

    We got back from our family vacation on Saturday evening. We were sitting, enjoying a glass of wine while watching TV and a HUGE thunderstorm rolled through (we got over 5" of rain in 48 hours, all told).

    FLASH/BOOM - then we had a large spark jump across our fireplace, 6 feet from us. WOW!

    It’s been raining steadily here in deming nm since about noon yesterday. My mother’s friend says it’s the longest sustained rain since he’s been here. The day I arrived, it was very windy in Texas and New Mexico and the dust was blowing everywhere.

    We have been getting very mild weather and received lots of rain instead of snow. But west and north in pa they received more snow. A few days ago it was 56 first thing in the morning while in New Mexico it was 26 near the us/Mexico border and 6 up north in Albuquerque

    I don't know what to think of weather anymore. This is the first truly snow-less winter in southern Japan since 2002, when I first arrived here. Even the local mountains, which are up to 3500 feet high, have had basically no snow all winter long. In a typical year you'll see snow on the higher ridge lines for up to a week's time, and in some years 2 or 3 weeks. This year, none. At my home, a mere 195 feet above sea level, snow falls several times in a normal year, and accumulations can range from a dusting to nearly a foot deep (rarely). It doesn't persist more than a day or two on average at this elevation, but it does happen regularly. I haven't seen ONE flake fall from the sky so far, and after February, winter is all but over in these parts.

    In terms of frost, locally it got down to 30 F one morning in late December, and since then there have been a sprinkling of mornings near or around the freezing mark. Typically there are around 14 days or so of below freezing mornings around my place, and this year maybe we've only had that one day in December, plus a couple that have been close. As for average temperature, January is the coldest month here. The most recent 30 year average (1981-2010) for the month is around 43.7 F (that includes highs and lows), but this year came in the warmest, at 49.1 F (it has been tracked the past 120 years). February, historically a bit warmer than January, has to date been colder than January so far, but according to the forecast we will have temperatures up into mid 60's by mid week! Hmm...

    Upshot, it hasn't been "warm" this winter, but sure ain't cold neither, not by a country mile.
