December 13, 2013 – CAIRO — Snow coated domes and minarets Friday as a record Middle East storm compounded the suffering of Syrian refugees, sent the Israeli army scrambling to dig out stranded motorists and gave Egyptians a rare glimpse of snow in their capital.
Nearly three feet of snow closed roads in and out of Jerusalem, which is set in high hills, and thousands in and around the city were left without power. Israeli soldiers and police rescued hundreds trapped in their cars by snow and ice. In the West Bank, the branches of olive trees groaned under the weight of snow.
In Cairo, where local news reports said the last recorded snowfall was more than 100 years ago, children in outlying districts capered in white-covered streets, and adults marveled at the sight, tweeting pictures of snow-dusted parks and squares. In other parts of the city, rain and hail rocketed down.
On social media, some joked that the snowfall was the mystical work of Gen. Abdel Fattah Sisi, the military strongman who is the focus of something of a cult of personality among his followers. Sisi led the coup five months ago against the highly unpopular but democratically elected Islamist president, Mohamed Morsi. Storm-driven waves lashed Egypt’s Mediterranean coast, and fishermen in the ancient port city of Alexandria were warned by authorities against putting out to sea. In the Sinai Peninsula, snow fell on Mt. Sinai and St. Catherine’s monastery at its foot. Sleet washed the dusty fronds of desert palm trees.
Snow continues to fall across Israel Friday morning, reaching new regions of the country and causing major power outages and road closures. Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat released a statement saying "we are battling a storm of rare ferocity." The capital has over 37 centimeters (15 inches) of snow, with deeper snowfall in other areas.
A weather forecaster on public radio described the storm as "historic," as Jerusalem temperatures already dropped to 2 degrees celsius (35.6 Fahrenheit), and are expected to drop below freezing. Snow is anticipated to continue falling through Saturday.
It's a HARP attack! Well planned by the dastardly evil Government. Or it's really really cold. Either way it would be great fun to watch a bunch of Egyptians drive in the snow.
Global Warming was the wrong term, one that is surely regretted. Climate Change or even Climate Re-organization would have been much better to say right from the start of it all. This weather just made the Climate Change Deniers wet their pants........
Calling it Climate Change right from the the start and rather than fight the reasons why it is happening forever we should have just started working on how to adapt to our ever changing world.
Back to your regular programming ( :
The signs of climate change happening at an accelerated rate around the world at the present moment points strongly to a Pole Shift, not simply human intervention.
The melting of the ice caps is a deliberate mechanism within the Earth cycle- a prelude to when the currents of the Earth will stop and allow the Crust to shift position before they start up again and allow ice to increase during a forced mini-ice age thanks to the oceans releasing CO2.
The Impact of this needs to be put into context. Far from the end of the world, a Pole Shift spells new possibilities and exciting climate changes, not seen for thousands of years. Deserts can once again bloom, while areas trapped under years of ice are brought back to life.
"A growing number of scientists are starting to worry the magnetic pole shift, that seems to be underway, is the real culprit behind climate change. Not man made air pollution, not the Sun, not the underground volcanic activity heating up the oceans, but the slow beginning of a pole shift that has been thought to destroy entire civilizations in the past and be one major factor in mass extinctions. NASA recently discovered and released information about a major breach in the Earth's magnetic field."
"This breach in the Earth's magnetic field allows solar winds to enter the Earth's atmosphere and is sufficient to really mess up the weather. Not only is this accelerating magnetic pole shift messing up the weather, it is also having major effects on geopolitics. These magnetic shifts are not only capable of causing massive global super storms, ...."
There's more info below but this seems to make a lot of sense to me. The real problem is that mainstream science hasn't devoted that much time and energy to this subject.
