Maine broke an all-time record today for low temperatures but that's not the end of it. It is just the beginning. Chances are during the next ten years there will be temperatures in Maine that make that reading look like tee-shirt weather.
As Robert Felix pointed out, people will be fighting in the streets over food long before their primary worry is freezing to death. By the time it is so cold that acquiring fuel for heating oil through warfare is the only thing standing between your population and a million deaths from hypothermia each winter, many billions will die in horrific famine.
Human agencies are taking what would have been a bad situation to begin with and turning it into a genocidal extinction cycle for almost all of mankind. Bad enough it will be almost impossible to grow anything ... if Monsanto has their way there will be no seeds to grow anything with.
