What does August in Germany look like?


This is shaping up as the first summer since 1989 where there is year-round snow on the Zugspitze (Germany's highest mountain). Sure, this is weather, not climate - but late or missing snows in winter would cause a breathless round of ZOMG Thermageddon!!!one! headlines, so turnaround is air play.

Even more so as this is (once again, yawn) being billed as the "hottest year ever".  No wonder the public no longer listens to "Climate Scientists" - I mean, who you going to believe?  The scientists or your lying eyes?

That's a big region of Europe, four months long - and yet, if you look at the climate sites, they will tell you that all of Europe had record-breaking heat in every single month this year.

The lies are getting a bit desperate...
