Snowfall in the Sahara Desert:
The world’s hottest desert
briefly turned into a winter wonderland

Indian Express [Mumbai India], by Staff

If you’ve ever been to the desert, you would know that it is a barren piece of land with the scorching sun shining for the larger part of the day with little or no rainfall. However, things took a shocking turn when the world’s hottest desert — The Sahara Desert in Africa — was pictured covered in snow. Unbelievable, right? Well, it’s true. Swirls of white snow in the orange dunes actually looked like some kind of latte art. On January 7, Ain Sefra, a desert town in Algeria, also known as the ‘Gateway to the Sahara’ – where the

Clearly Exxon and Chevron´s fault. Raise taxes on gasoline (but leave jet fuel alone since the G5´s take a lot of that)!

Damned global warming, freezing the heck out of everyone.

Seriously, the sunspot numbers have been steadily decreasing for several decades. Recent sunspot levels have been nil, and if it continues, the info from the Maunder Minimum tells us to expect a serious cooling period. MM led to the Little Ice Age, winter festivals on the thick ice on the Thames and places that haven´t frozen for close to a century. 202 years ago, a volcano popped it´s top and cancelled summer entirely, and millions went hungry. Rivers iced over in Pennsylvania in July and August, crops failed.

Excessively cold temps are far, far more dangerous than a bit of warming, yet the insane leftists scream endlessly about the fantasy MMGW.

This perfectly fits the theory of Gullible Warming.

You see - - when the warmed vortices in the polar extremities infiltrate a lower pressure area in transit from the formerly-warmed nimbi of the water vapor, the result can be a precipitation inversion reversing the normal pattern affected by the abnormally-warmed areas swirling above the heated silicon of the desert.

It´s all so simple - - and strongly reinforces the settled science of Gullible Warming.

Any questions?

Right, #3... and #5, thanks for the hilarity!

The warmists are such children.

As my favorite pre-Socratic philosopher, Heraclitus, said, "Everything is in flux. You step and do not step in the same river."

Change, including extremes, within a certain spectrum is constant. But there are lots of variables.

For example, about 20thousand years ago the advance of the Pleistocene glaciers ceased and then began to retreat. Up until ten thousand years ago, most of the North American continent was covered by massive glaciers, while most of Asia was not.

As #3 says, we could be headed into another mini ice age, as has occurred since the end of the last Ice Age. We could even be in for another "snowball earth" era, if we don´t get some more warming to settle in.

Fake Starbucks coupons have begun circulating on social media in the wake of protests over the arrests of two black men who had asked to use a Starbucks restroom. The coupons, which feature images of Starbucks beverages, the brand´s iconic color green and bar codes, appear to offer "people of color" or "African-American heritage" free drinks. "This is completely false and in no way associated with Starbucks," a Starbucks spokeswoman told CNBC.

Starbucks is closing thousands of stores across the U.S. on the afternoon of May 29 to conduct "racial-bias education geared toward preventing discrimination in our stores," the company said in a statement. The coffee shop chain has been criticized and protested against after two black men were arrested last week at a Starbucks in Philadelphia, where they were quietly waiting to meet someone. Starbucks employees called 911 after one of the men, who had not yet purchased anything, asked to use the bathroom and then remained at the shop. Other customers recorded the arrest and protested that the men hadn´t

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor broke her right shoulder in a fall at her home, but will continue performing her duties as usual, a court spokeswoman said on Tuesday. "She will wear a sling for several weeks and will undergo physical therapy," spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said in a statement. The injury that she sustained on Monday marked the second medical issue that Sotomayor, 63, has faced this year. The life-long diabetic was treated by paramedics for low blood sugar at her home in Washington in January. Sotomayor, one of the nine-member court´s four liberal justices, was named to the court

American Muslims launch political campaigns,

SAN DIEGO - Fayaz Nawabi has never met President Donald Trump. But he credits the president with convincing him to run for office. Nawabi, a 31-year-old candidate for San Diego City Council, supports almost everything that Trump opposes: He is pro-affordable housing, pro-environment, pro-immigrant and pro-refugee. That makes him part of the blue wave of new liberal candidates spurred to run by Trump´s election and policies. But Nawabi is also part of a notable subset: the blue Muslim wave. More than 90 American Muslims, nearly all of them Democrats, are running for public office across the country this year. Many

WASHINGTON — When it comes to James B. Comey’s book-tour crusade against President Trump, the question for hard-core Hillary Clinton fans boils down to this: Curse Mr. Comey, or cheer him? Curse him, mostly. They may be card-carrying members of “the Resistance,” who oppose everything that the president stands for, but Mrs. Clinton’s former aides and advisers are still too angry at Mr. Comey, the former F.B.I. director, to see past what they view as his egregious actions that handed the White House to Mr. Trump. In interviews, Twitter posts, television appearances and private grumblings, Team Hillary is using Mr.

DENVER – The City of Denver wants to double the amount of money it spends on affordable housing every year and part of that plan involves raising taxes on marijuana sales. The city announced on Monday a new partnership with the Denver Housing Authority that would involve boosting Denver’s affordable housing fund to $30 million annually and issuing more than $100 million in bonds to support more affordable housing over the next five years. “We can all agree – more resources are key to addressing this challenge,” Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said. “The Housing Authority has been a trusted partner

Former vice president Joe Biden said in an interview broadcast Sunday that he has not ruled out a presidential run in 2020 and that he expects to make a decision by the end of the year. Biden has previously left the door open to a 2020 presidential run but gave a newly expansive account of his thinking to the Rev. Al Sharpton on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation.” “I’m really hoping that some other folks step up,” Biden said. “I think we have some really good people. … I got to walk away knowing that it is — there’s somebody who can do

President Donald Trump’s outrage over another apparent chemical weapons attack by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was clear. And for the second time in his presidency, the U.S. commander-in-chief demanded retaliation. As images of sick or dying children flooded global media all week, the U.S. guided-missile destroyer USS Winston Churchill churned toward the Mediterranean to join a flotilla of allied warships, including another U.S. destroyer, the USS Donald Cook. It was a ruse. While both vessels carry as many as 90 Tomahawk missiles -- the main weapon used in the Friday evening strike on Syria -- neither ship in the end fired

President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen on Saturday responded to a report that special counsel Robert Mueller has evidence that Cohen went to Prague during the 2016 election, slamming it as “bad reporting.” “Bad reporting, bad information and bad story,” Cohen tweeted, calling out the reporter behind the story by name. “No matter how many times or ways they write it, I have never been to Prague.

In a symbolic milestone, Sears will soon close its last store in Chicago — the city the iconic retailer has called home or been closely connected to for 120 years. The store, at 4730 W. Irving Park Road, will go out of business in mid-July with the liquidation sale of its merchandise starting on April 27. The Chicago storefront is part of a batch of 265 Sears and Kmart locations that were purchased by the real estate investment trust Seritage Growth Properties in 2015, then leased back by the retailer.

In a state consumed by conservation and environmental issues, one highly endangered species has long gone unnoticed and unprotected – the California Conservative. Is it still possible to rescue them from the brink of extinction? Can their numbers be revived? And can they thrive here once again? While the nation continues to view California as a homogeneous voting block of individuals in lock step with an increasingly progressive liberal agenda, for Common Sense Californians up and down the left coast state, there’s a sense that a different tide is rising. The ripple began in Los Alamitos where the city council

The White Sox (3-6) and the Rays (2-8) aren´t exactly must-see attractions this season. That is very clear by the number of people who showed up to watch the two teams play Monday. According to the Tampa Bay Times, the official number of people who used their tickets to enter the game was 974. It´s hard to believe that many actually entered the ballpark based on pictures from Guaranteed Rate Field. The actual paid attendance for the game was 10,377.

Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama are building a swimming pool at their home in an exclusive neighborhood of Washington DC. The 44th president and his family purchased the the 8,200 sq ft mansion in the Kalorama area of the capital in 2017 for $8.1million having initially rented the property.

“If the Trumps were Democrats,” conservative actor James Woods tweeted earlier this month, “Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” Woods may be exaggerating a little bit — only Oprah can put herself on the cover of a magazine every month, and it’s her own magazine — but he does make an interesting point. First Lady Melania Trump has not graced the cover of a single magazine in the United States since her husband took office over a year ago.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

The past 12 hours brought two very big revelations involving former FBI director James B. Comey, President Trump and the Russia investigation, and they must be looked at side by side to fully grasp their collective importance. Comey’s memos of his conversations with Trump have leaked in full. This came after Republicans threatened to subpoena them from Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, leading him to release them to Congress. Comey confirmed to Rachel Maddow that before getting fired, he ordered an internal investigation into whether Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani had been privately tipped off by people in the FBI two weeks

New York set aside $10 million for the legal defense of immigrants targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement just days after ICE announced the arrest of hundreds of people in the state. The Liberty Defense Project will ensure legal rights are being represented, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. It was launched last year, but it needs the additional funds in light of what state officials described as “overly aggressive tactics” from ICE. “ICE’s hyper-aggressive raids on hardworking New Yorkers are immoral and un-New York, and we stand more determined than ever to support the rights of all immigrants in the Empire State
