Heavy Snow Fall In South Africa Blamed On Global Warming
Phantom warming still cited as NASA sounds alarm bells on greatly reduced solar activity

Unexpected snowfall and freezing temperatures in the KwaZulu-Natal region of South Africa has been described by so called climate experts as a feature of global warming.

The country experienced its coldest night on record two nights ago ó in the spring time.

The adverse weather has shocked and surprised many locals, with forecasters warning that worse conditions could follow.

The snow is part of a continuing pattern of cold snaps across the continent that has also seen unprecedented ice storms in Kenya, resulting in 4 inch deep hail covering the ground.

Watch an ITN news item on the snowfall:

The cold snap arrives on the back of the Sun reaching a milestone not observed in nearly 100 years - the entire month of August passed without a single sunspot being noted.

NASA will today hold a media teleconference at 12:30 p.m. EDT, to discuss data from the joint NASA and European Space Agency Ulysses mission that reveals the sunís solar wind is at a 50-year low. A statement already released by the space agency has stressed that "the sunís current state could result in changing conditions in the solar system."

Lack of solar activity in 2008 has coincided with evidence of a cooling trend across the world.

Earlier this year, China experienced its coldest winter in 100 years while northeast America was hit by record snow levels, Sydney experienced its coldest August for 60 years and Britain suffered its coldest April in decades.

Rapid decrease in solar activity is an event that has always preceded so called mini-ice age periods throughout history, no wonder then that many scientists are predicting prolonged global cooling.

Not those at the South African department of environmental affairs, however.

In a South African Independent article titled "Warming has a hand in recent wild weather", Joanne Yawitch, the deputy director general in the department of environmental affairs and tourism, noted that "climate change", as in man made climate change, was playing a role in the adverse weather patterns: "What it raises for South Africa is the ability to develop a [resilience] to weather changes and how to deal with these," she said.

The comments echo those of World Wildlife Fund development and sustainability program manager Paul Toni, who recently told reporters in Australia that "The freezing temperatures are proof of the urgent need to cut carbon pollution."

Thatís right - in case you werenít aware of the new climate change catch-all explanation, man made CO2 emissions now cause global cooling as well as global warming.

Indeed, all weather events, be it snow, rainfall, storms, hurricanes, typhoons or earthquakes are also now caused by CO2 emissions. This is because none of the current weather trends fit in with the notion that has been pushed for the best part of a decade now that an overall heating of the Earth mandates the poor and middle classes be hit with multiple forms of lifestyle restriction and CO2 taxation in order to save the planet.

I'm glad you're getting your science analysis from Alex Jones. That's sure to be reliable.

What science would that be exactly? There are only four different sciences. Some would argue 3. So which science is being displayed here?

global warming will surely result in an ice age.

Well that's pretty ass backwards.

It is winter. And Global Warming increases the energy in the atmosphere. That means when it does rain or snow it tends to be heavier and longer. However if you wish to put forth that sunspot low will help lower solar flux and effect weather than I agree. The question is what happens when the 11 year cycle starts building toward a high. We can only hope the sun god helps us out in the short run.

What will happen if this Global Warming/Cooling-Manmade Climate Change puts us in an ice age until the end of time?

Environmental affairs and tourism are a couple things I think of as being peas in a pod.

I would never go to South Africa. I am weird that way. I would consider it now that it is snowing. I have always wanted to have a snowball fight with a spider monkey.

Proabably the day after tomorrow too.
