Under the "Adopt a Vortex" program, Mini Cooper paid to have a cold front named "Cooper."

But now the cold front has caused many cases of hypothermia and frostbite and at least 100 deaths.

Us silly people! We are so filled with hubris that we think we can taunt Mother Nature by using her for advertising purposes. But Mother Nature taunts back! And she don't mess around...

The possibilities are endless. Ukraine should have named the front Putin.

It is an ad. Paid for by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying death and cold tootsies.

At least this helps point out that cold is a far greater killer than heat. Global cooling is something to fear.

I work in advertising and even I think this is all sorts of stupid.

Everyone knows you put your money into warm fronts and cold SNAPS.

Them minis are death traps!

Seriously though, has anyone else noticed that the CRU, primary source for ALL the data supporting the global warming hoax, is now saying "Never mind. Fooled ya"

(In essence, anyway)

No warming in the past 15 years.

No warming expected in the future.

Global cooling with the Thames freezing for the first time in centuries in the near future.

Colder in London this week than at the South Pole

All this while CO2 continues rise. THE SCIENCE IS IN!!! If CO2 goes up, temps will rise.

Except when they don't.

It would be nice if we could get an apology from the warmenist hoaxers.

I won't hold my breath.

I dunno, causing hundreds of deaths in Poland and Ukraine may not be a bad PR move in Germany...

We think that together we've taken the edge off.

We think that you are less likely to work so hard.

And more ready to just chill your way into the vortex.

Not all marketing is successful.

I remember a hurricane named Hillary too.

I wonder what Anderson has to say about Vortex Cooper.

They should have adopted the Althouse vortex.
