‘Zombie’ deer disease is in 24 states and thousands of infected deer are eaten each year, expert warns

Click here: For humans, eating infected deer meat would be the most likely way for it to spread to people, the CDC says.

We Just Had Two Years Of Record-Breaking Global Cooling (But Don’t Tell Anyone)

Click here: NASA data show that global temperatures dropped sharply over the past two years. Not that you’d know it, since that wasn’t deemed news. Does that make NASA a global warming denier? Aaron Brown looked at the official NASA global temperature data and noticed something surprising. From February 2016 to February 2018, “global average temperatures dropped by 0.56 degrees Celsius.” That, he notes, is the biggest two-year drop in the past century. “The 2016-2018 Big Chill,” he writes, “was composed of two Little Chills, the biggest five month drop ever (February to June 2016) and the fourth biggest (February to June 2017). A similar event from February to June 2018 would bring global average temperatures below the 1980s average.”
