Ah, Global Warming is on the march again! This time it is picking on the Islamic world, where a snowstorm carpeted the Sahara Desert, the first snowfall in 37 years.
This follows on the heels of last month's snowfall in Saudi Arabia, a rare occurance. Delighted Saudi citizens went out and built snowmen, and had a fatwa declared against them for their troubles:
"But while the building of snowmen may seem innocent enough, Saudis who took part in the activity during a freak snowfall in January 2015 were condemned by a cleric who called it sinful and "anti-Islamic." He issued a fatwa (religious ruling) forbidding the activity - though clearly his opinion is not shared by everyone in the country."
And Karen cried when Frosty melted...
Fear of being stoned to death by icicles aside, what does this say about thermogeddon and our melting planet?
No doubt Judah Cohen is trying to figure out how global warming is making it snow in Africa and Arabia, but nobody outside of a few desperate climate fakkirs who hope to convince people it's cold because it's hot and if we keep warming the planet we will freeze. (See more on old Jumpin' Judah here.) But rational people know that a. it hasn't warmed since 1995 b.it is not appreciably warmer than it was ten years ago c. people have been warning of a coming mini-ice age, and this is more in line with such claims than with some mystical air conditioning system caused by heat.
Sometimes it's cold because it's cold. I image the Saudi or algerian peoples aren't at all confused by THAT.
