Ottawa is the second coldest capital city in the world. Winter brings ferocious downfalls of knee-deep snow. Being raised in the Ottawa area, I was accustomed to having the federal government close down for a day or two in winter because of “bad weather.” Later on, as an anarchist, I used to joke about achieving anarchism through climate manipulation. Imagine my surprise when I found out that the federal offices in the District of Columbia were closed on February 8 by a heavy snowfall. Clearly, what we need is global cooling.
