Global Warming Strikes Again: Sahara Desert covered in 15 inches of Snow!

Al Gore’s climate crisis, formerly known as global warming and more recently climate change (what do you know, climate changes, we needed Al Gore, the inventor of the internet to tell us) just shocked the environmentalists again, as world’s biggest and sometimes hottest desert, the Sahara respectively, was covered in fifteen inches of snow (38+ centimeters if you’re more familiar with the metric system).

Obviously, the freak weather is to be blamed by eco-nazis on anthropogenic global warming, climate change or whatever, even if the unusual winter storm that hit Sahara near the small town of Ain Sefra, in Algeria is nothing new, really. The thing is, a similar phenomenon took place last year, when it snowed in December, 2016 that is, and then back in 1979. All due to you know what, obviously. Yesterday’s snowfall is a rare occurrence in this tiny city founded by the French as a garrison town back in 1881,  which is dubbed “the gateway to the Sahara desert”. The scientific explanation for this freak weather event is:

“Cold air was pulled down south in to North Africa over the weekend as a result of high pressure over Europe.The high pressure meant the cold weather extended further south than normal.”

Speaking of Global Warming/Climate Change and CO2 as a pollutant, could you spend 20 seconds looking for Nobel Physics laureates on YouTube, who will explain why your belief in this pseudo-science should be ditched? Then you will see events such as fuel price rises and CO2 charges are totally consistent with a scam by a group of people who bought shares in every company that would benefit from said scam.

The real “Inconvenient Truth” Gore forgot to mention is that in the fossil record, CO2 rises have always lagged temperature rises by around 800 years. When the world had ten times as much CO2 in the atmosphere as we have today, it was a lush paradise with huge production of biomass. The earth has nothing to fear from a runaway greenhouse.
