CAIRO -- Snow coated domes and minarets Friday as a record Mideast storm compounded the suffering of Syrian refugees, sent the Israeli army scrambling to dig out stranded motorists and gave Egyptians a rare glimpse of snow in their capital.

Quick, Mama, throw some more wood in that stove! We need to generate more CO2 to help warm things up or we’re all gonna die in another ice age!

So, as things Politically heat up over there...

The Climate cools.

The “peace process” brings war,

The Arab Spring brings snow.

Well it’s obvious that the increase of warm air in the arctic has forced the cold air to the south. In fact, the more global warming we have, the farther south it pushes the snow.

It’s more incontrovertible proof of climate change. All scientists and environmental activists agree.

Israel is one thing- but snow in Muslim hell-holes? Does this qualify as a ‘cold day in hell’?

“Well it’s obvious that the increase of warm air in the arctic has forced the cold air to the south. In fact, the more global warming we have, the farther south it pushes the snow.”

Did you forget the sarcasm tag? I mean, that was really dumb considering where did that cold air come from if the artic is warmer. That and the artic ice sheet has grown to a very large size and that takes cold, not warm, air.

Liberals are some of the dumbest creatures. They take a photograph of the artic ice sheet at its smallest, which shrinks and grows routinely, and claim the ice sheet is melting. Albore said the ice sheet would be gone this summer. Funny thing, it’s at its largest size right now.

Time to put tis to bed ala Saul Alinsky.

The democrats won. Global warming is fixed. Now, how do they fix global cooling now that they broke the climate?

LOLOL!!!!

I never saw the film, but I’ll conjecture that it had a school teacher and her students who tried to tell everyone that the global cooling phenomenon was brought upon them by the AGW phenomenon and that THEY WERE ALL GONNA DIE if they didn’t allow the Global Warmist high priests to dictate how to live their lives.

Some sarc tags speak for themselves. And satirical parody or not, I would not be surprised to see an Algore clone make exactly that statement, with a straight face.

Winter came early in Indiana. The asphalt plants closed in early November. Usually they will stay open until December. The stormwater retention ponds have frozen over; that is about three weeks ahead of normal. We’ve had snow cover for about 10 days since the last snowfall, and are expecting more tonight. It may get into the low 40’s next week for a day or two, but that’s the normal high temperature this time of year.

All in all, we are 3-4 weeks early this year, and have been trending that way since October. It’s going to be a brutal winter. Isn’t it great that under 0bama’s plan, electricity rates have skyrocketed, as he promised?

You would think so but with all the liberal trolls appearing on FR lately we almost need the tag as stupid comments by liberals are things they actually support. That’s why I posted my comments as a question because there was a hint of sarcasm there but if the poster was a liberal they could actually be serious.

If anyone wants to revive the 70s environmental theme - which was that we are facing a new ice age - then I will join up to their cause. I see signs of cold weather everywhere - seriously I do. Cairo blanketed in snow is just another example.

And just to think it only takes 100 years to grow a glacial ice sheet 2 km high. If and when one does start to form, it won’t go unnoticed at 60 plus feet a year.

Well, it's bright sunny and clear and will be about 67 today in southern California.

They are calling for 71 degrees tomorrow..

Near perfect in my book!

Well it’s obvious that the increase of warm air in the arctic has forced the cold air to the south. In fact, the more global warming we have, the farther south it pushes the snow.

Actually, the cause is easy to understand. Too many people are living in northern latitudes... too many heavy buildings, big cars, gold hoarders, etc. This extra weight is pushing down on the tectonic plates, raising them in the more southern latitudes, causing them to cool more than normal.

The only real solution of course is more taxes to allow for the proper redistribution of wealth to try and balance things back out again.

Close, but actually more humorous than that. A band of people survive the deep freeze at the New York City library led by a homeless man who teaches them how to jimmy the vending machine for food and burn books for fuel. At least they start with the IRS Tax Code.

Nah, these frauds already have their excuse figured out — you see, you climate change deniers, the snow in the Middle East only shows how volatile the global weather patterns have become due to evils of man. Now, pay your carbon tax and shut up.
