UAE sees snow for first time ever
Reminds me of something that one of my more brainiac professors in GIS school said about global warming: "It's like we are fleas on the butt of a dog trying to figure out which way the dog is going." He scoffed at the idea that we could know for sure that global warming was real or that it was really due to human activities, etc. We also had record cold temps here in Fairfield recently. Brrrr. I really don't like being cold.
Perhaps what we have is some lesser version of "Nuclear Winter" -- like the cold summer after Krakatoa when Shelly wrote Frankenstein because it was too cold to go outside so her and her friends got together and had a fiction writing contest/club type thing. Perhaps all the fossil fuels we are burning is lower temperatures due to all the crap in the air blocking sunlight, the way the soot and ash from Krakatoa lowered world temperatures for a time.
