ncredible photos capture freak snowfall in the Sahara Desert, believed to be first time it has fallen on the unforgiving red dunes in almost 40 years.

The largest hot desert on the planet, spanning 3,600,000 sq. mi. and many North Africa countries, is not the first place many would associate with a snow during the festive period, with the rare occurrence leaving the man who captured the event stunned.



Snow in desert = unusual weather

Unusual weather = climate change

Climate change = global warming

Global warming = Al Gore was right

Don’t be a science denier

In 40 years.

It's happened before.

So it's not unusual weather.

It's not climate change.

It's not global warming.

Al Gore wasn't right.

Because it was snowing in the Sahara before Al Gore made his millions selling ice water to eskimos.

Was the Sahara ever a lush area?

The Sahara desert was once a lush Savanna.




"The climate change at [10,500 years ago] which turned most of the [3.8 million square mile] large Sahara into a savannah-type environment happened within a few hundred years only, certainly within less than 500 years," said study team member Stefan Kroepelin of the University of Cologne in Germany.

Deserts by their nature are cold places at night. During WW2 troops reported snowfalls in the North African deserts and sleet was a fairly common occurrence during Gulf War 1

Science denier here,

Is this the first time it has ever snowed in the Sahara? No.

Snow fall in the desert does not prove there is climate change, just as it can't prove there is no climate change.

Deserts hit freezing temps quite a bit annual because of lack of humidity. That also means it rarely ever snows.

FL also gets freezing conditions rather far down the penninsula each winter, but it goes sometimes months without a cloud during fall/winter so the conditions for snow only come few and far between (like every 40 years kind of frequency) in any given locale. Even that year that every county in the entire state was declared federal disaster area, frost in Miami, it just didnt really snow anywhere.

I'm just trying to keep up with which sciences we're denying and which we are accepting.

The science is settled.

97% of scientists agree.

Al Gore says so

He took two science courses in college – he knows

The pope says so too — most Popes have great science knowledge

And how about Obama?

Al Gore, the Pope, and OBama, are well known as:
The Three Stooges of Climate Change
