You should learn about global climate system...
Global warming itself is a fact, the temperature of Earth has risen in the last century significantly. What is not determined fully is the man´s part
in it, although vast majority of scientists from amateurs to professionals from every part of the world believe man plays a significant part in it.
The crazy weather happening recently clearly demonstrates that something is changing in the global weather system. Snowstorms are not dependent on the
earth´s temperature, but different air masses colliding. The fact that it snows in Middle East means somehow cold air masses managed to reach areas
it does not usually and collide with hot air mass there leading to a snowstorm. The Earth´s climate is dependent on all regions, being affected by
ocean temperatures, different streams (like Gulf), winds (like El Nino) etc. Changes in the patterns in any of these in any region, can lead to crazy
weather elsewhere, including snowstorms. The trend is clear and it is getting warmer in Arctic, although compared to the rest of the world, it is
still incredibly cold there and majority of the cold air masses come from polar regions. This year for whatever reason these used a "different" route
