The (Australian) ABC reports:
Pshaw, we're told. This is mere weather, not climate which is increasingly hot on a global scale. Like in Antarctica where there is record ice:Rare at any time, there has been October snow across some southern areas of South Australia.The weather bureau in Adelaide said the last reports of snowfall in the Adelaide and neighbouring Mount Lofty Ranges region in October were a century ago.
The ice goes on seemingly forever in a white pancake-flat landscape, stretching farther than ever before. And yet in this confounding region of the world, that spreading ice may be a cockeyed signal of man-made climate change, scientists say.And why would scientists say that record ice is evidence of global warming? Simple. Everything is evidence of global warming.
And this concludes your Sunday lesson in Faith.
FAITH, n. Belief without evidence in what is told by one who speaks without knowledge, of things without parallel.
