Snow in...Saudi Arabia????

Iraq, Jerusalem, and Iraq too! Must be all that CO2 in the air:

Snow in Saudi Arabia, Greece, Jerusalem, China, Iraq — maybe the polar bears will get a larger habitat.

I posted on that snow in Athens on Monday. Now, the London Daily Mail has pictures of that as well as a roundup of all the places that have experienced snow for the first time in a while.

“So far,” the Daily Mail wryly noted, “the leading advocates of the global warming thesis have remained fairly quiet about the 2008 freeze, although some may explain that ‘freak weather events’ such as we are now witnessing are just what we should expect to see as Planet Earth hots up — even if this produces the paradox that warming may sometimes lead to cooling.”

Bloggers notice.

The “Watts Up With That?” site has a chart from NASA’s own James “Global Warming” Hansen that show a significant drop in temperatures in the past 12 months at the NASA center he heads.

In fact, Watts Up has four such charts.

Scientific consensus, my eye.

Here is what comes to mind whenever I hear about "consensus science":

To me, consensus seems to be the process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values and policies. So it is something in which no one believes and to which no one objects.
