Mother Nature Confounds Forecasts of Global Warming
Last week, Cairo, Egypt, saw the first recorded snowfall in 100 years. Jerusalem was hit by a rare December snow storm called the “fiercest in 20 years.”
Here in the United States, on Thursday of last week, 59 percent of the country was covered in snow, the highest level in at least a decade, according to the National Weather Service.

This is not what environmentalists have been telling us to expect. Five years ago, Al Gore predicted the North Pole could be ice-free by now. In fact, this summer and fall were marked by the thickest ice packs in years. Arctic ice coverage is up 50 percent from 2012 levels. Antarctic ice is breaking all-time records.

Please enjoy these pictures of people enjoying the record snowfall in the Middle East, taken over the weekend.
