The Cloud God Has Eaten The Sun

Falling Snow in Australia At The Summer
Posted on December 21, 2010 by Hot News
NewSecond – In recent days, residents in parts of eastern Australia experienced a rare weather. Usually the air remains hot, but the territory they now actually very cold and snowy.

According to media circles, this is a weird weather phenomenon, considering the number of regions in Australia, such as areas of New South Wales and Victoria, are still experiencing summer at the end of the year.

The Lies Of Global Warming pt 1


Maybe before ClimateGate, Roger.

Roger Highfield is one who thinks he can ask questions like the one below and be protected from ridicule because he’s so scary smart–or something.

Are we freezing because of global warming?

As a blanket of snow settles across the country, Airports, and train services grind to a halt and roads become impassable, you could be forgiven for thinking that global warming seems more remote than ever. But the World Meteorological Organisation announced that 2010 is almost certain to rank among the three warmest years since records began in 1850 – and it has long been accepted that one of the effects of climate change could be an increase in the frequency of harsher, Continental-style winters.

This is what passes for “reporting” these days: acknowledge that the hard data is against you: i.e., the snow and record cold temperatures–but then re-announce some climate change pimpinghouse’s announcement of “forget all of the freezing cold–these past years has really been a scorcher–really!”

Why not just write that the Cloud God has eaten the Sun and crapped out snow?

That makes just as good an argument–while being as logical.

Advice for Staying Warm and Safe in a Freezing World.

To avoid cold-related injuries, here is a simple way to remember four basic steps to staying warm. Think of COLD -- C.O.L.D

The C stands for cover. Wear a hat and scarf to keep heat from escaping through the head, neck and ears. And wear mittens instead of gloves. In gloves, the fingers are separated, so the hands might not stay as warm as they would in mittens.

The O stands for overexertion. Avoid activities that will make you sweaty. Wet clothes and cold weather are a dangerous combination.

L is for layers. Wearing loose, lightweight clothes, one layer on top of another, is better than wearing a single heavy layer of clothing. Make sure outerwear is made of material that is water-resistant and tightly knit.

D is for dry. In other words, stay as dry as possible. Pay attention to the places where snow can enter clothing. These include the tops of boots, the necks of coats and the wrist areas of mittens or gloves.

And here are two other things to keep in mind -- one for children and the other for adults. Eating snow might be fun but it lowers the body's temperature. And drinking alcohol might make a person feel warm. But what it really does is weaken the body's ability to hold heat.

It was Cold that killed my father, and it will be Cold that will one day reclaim the earth. I pray that it will be a longtime in coming.

I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit. Kahlil Gibran
