Test your geo-climate knowledge …

What is this a picture of?

OK, let’s make the question easier – a multiple choice:

(A)  A portion of the Arctic where global warming has melted parts of the Polar Icecap.

(B)  A part of the Sahara Desert where snow has fallen for the 2nd time in 40 years?

And, the answer is …

========

Of course, (B) is the correct answer.

The Washington Post – hardly a bastion of climate change skepticism – reports:

The freak snow shower coated the giant sandy dunes of the Sahara, known first and foremost for its deadly, suffocating heat.

The area hadn’t seen snow in nearly 40 years until it happened for the first time this century in 2017.

Even more odd, now, is the fact that it snowed two years in a row.

Meteo Algerie reported about four to six inches of snow in the Sahara provinces of Naama and El Bayadh.

Are 2 consecutive years “weather” or “climate”?

A set-back for global warming zealots?

Nope.

Led by front-man Al Gore, the global warmists are re-branding still again … from “global warming “ to “climate change” to “climate crisis” … and arguing that the recent numbing cold spell and consecutive years of snow in deserts is “exactly what to expect” from global warming.

Say what?

Their case: warming air in the Arctic is occasionally forcing some of that’s area’s cold air down to the southern areas.

The logical extension of the argument: In a couple of decades, we should expect polar-like icecaps in the Sahara … and see polar bears high-tailing it to the cool confines previously known as the deserts.

And this is “settled science”?

C’mon man …

    Not everyone is able to reconsider strongly held beliefs. And that is most unfortunate.
