Abnormal weather across the Middle-East has seen snow in some regions for the first time in decades.

Quote

Cairo is traditionally associated with sweltering hot conditions and a sandy desert landscape, but Egyptians waking up in the capital this week were in for a surprise when unusual weather conditions meant that the city had been blanketed in thick snow for the first time in 112 years.

How does this fit into the global warming situation?

Global warming characterizes statistical the increase of temperatures in the atmosphere and the oceans. From a meteorological point of view, dramatic regional climate changes may also be resulted by the same possible causes. Snow in Egypt isn´t an indicator that global warming does not exist.

Does this change to the "Winter of Arab Discontent," versus the "Arab Spring?"

So snow in Cairo is part of the global warming process - why did it snow 112 years ago? Was that global warming too?

  • The age of stupid is upon us. Scientific conclusions are drawn from missing data, resuming to suppositions and guessing.

The  global warming works both ways. It isn' t just warming up in some areas but everywhere globally. The fact that it did snow in Cairo doesn't prove anything. It can very well snow due to change of northen winds.

There is a reason it's called climate change and not global warming.  Avs76 and donteatus.  Please do not comment on something scientific if you have not a clue on how any of this works.  You clearly are not educated in anything involving climate or science.  Reading a random website does not make you educated.  Go sign up for a bunch of classes in your local college and learn.  Then join the discussion.  You just make yourself look stupid otherwise.  Could you teach yourself a very general understanding?  Yes, but you would need too know how too find credible websites.  Which, unless you've gone too college in the internet age.  You do not know how too do that even if you think you do.  Also, you would need too put in a lot of time too find the credible websites that dumb it down too give you a basic understanding.  Most of them assume you have the education when you are reading it.  Ones that are on every day news sites tend too just tell you without truly educating you so it leaves it open for you too reject it because you truly do not understand.  It's common and not your fault.  What is your fault is if you talk out of your butt.

I wonder how you showed your educated side on the topic of the post through your writing above.
Everybody is educated enough to some degree to comment. If anyone cant comprehend  that then it is their uneducated point of view.

I am very glad on behalf of the kids in cairo who could see the snow and play with it.

All this proves is it is possible to have snow in Cairo, which we already knew.  I hope they enjoyed it.

That´s correct so far. But if uneducated points of view are taking the results of scientic research into question by a cheeky reflex, education is required. And the community gave help with a little bit of education here.

The problem I notice is that people who don't comprehend don't comprehend that they don't comprehend, so they go ahead and act the fool completely unaware of the fact, and then argue with those who try to show them.  Best to just abandon them to their foolishness in the knowledge that being that way they will never get any influence anyway.

Climate is always changing, so snow in Israel and Egypt is positively due to climate change.
