I am working on the template of this blog today in order to chase down some problems that have developed with my template and widgets.

The Earth Continues Cooling Trend With Snow in the United Arab Emirates

White blanket of snow covers the Jees Mountain in the Gulf emirate of Ras Al-Khaimah on January 25. Residents in the most northerly Gulf emirate of Ras Al-Khaimah woke up to a rare covering of snow reaching up to 20 centimetres in depth with temperatures falling to -3 degrees Celsius.

Snow is so rare in the region that 
one lifelong resident said the local dialect had no word for it.
Certainly, this can all be explained by global climate change due to man(?)

In related news, Power Line reported that recent scientific work has thoroughly debunked the Mann "hockey stick" global warming analysis cited by Al Gore in his junk science documentary.Andrew Bostom has more on the debunking.

Now remember...
sea ice growth finished the year in 2008 at the same level as 1979.
oceans have been cooling since 2003.
Sea ice is 
growing at the fastest pace on record.
rare 50 year arctic blast is cooling the west coast.
glaciers are stabilizing.
There are 
growing fears of a coming freeze worse than the ice age.
Alaskan Sea Glaciers are advancing for the first time in 250 years.
And, for the second straight year the Earth is, in fact, cooling... not warming.

One thing that lefties keep forgetting...we are at the end of a warming trend, and temperatures will be declining for at least the next generation.
