The hundreds of scientists from 100 countries meeting in this Japanese port city are putting finishing touches on a massive report emphasizing the gravity of the threat the changing climate poses for communities from the polar regions to the tropics.
Japan's awareness of the severity of climate change has been driven home by record temperatures of over 40 C (104 F), and in Yokohama, by unusually heavy snows this winter, said the environment minister, Nobuteru Ishihara.

Ah...... you mean like in Washington state around the 48th parallel, 13 arcdeg further north than Tokyo, where Seattle hit 103degF in 2009. & temperatures inland from the cool Salish Sea(Puget Sound), went as high as 111degF.
Unusually heavy snowfalls? Mt. Rainier had some World record yearly snowfalls, altho Mt. Baker, now has the record at 1140 inches(95 feet). & in the middle between Rainier & Baker, 11 feet of snow in backyards of residents of Skykomish, WA., higher than the roofs people were clearing, so their homes didn't collapse.
Those kind of temperatures & snowfalls?
