    Wait, after a blistering summer in the north, you're saying one snowstorm in WINTER in South Africa on the highest mountain in the region that go up to 2,000 meters is proof there's no global warming.

    What the fuck?

    Cederberg - Wikipedia
    "The higher peaks receive a dusting of snow in winter."

    Snow is actually normal there IN WINTER.

    To my surprise I found the same story in the left wing "Der Spiegel" of all places.
    Wintereinbruch in Südafrika Giraffen im Schnee
    In Südafrika hat ein ungewöhnlich heftiger Wintereinbruch Giraffen und Elefanten überrascht. Auf Bildern wirken die Wildtiere wie Fremdkörper.

    You beat me to it because I was scanning the internet & cable channels to see who else reported it. As usual the same media which hyped heat waves ignored it. Like the BBC, their top news were:
    Furor at racist Serena Williams cartoon, Woman shoots husband dead in front of kids etc
    They will report it only after their spin doctors found some global warming experts who are going to point out that this is yet more proof of AGW. That`s easy after global warming was renamed to "climate change" , using cold weather events as further "proof" that we are causing extreme weather events.

    Nice try googling and posting Cedarberg, "the higher peaks receive a dusting of snow in the winter."
    you're saying one snowstorm in WINTER in South Africa on the highest mountain in the region that go up to 2,000 meters is proof there's no global warming.
    You should have googled if middle of September is winter in South Africa before you did your victory lap.
    Also this (South African) Spring time it`s been snowing at low elevations in KwaZulu-Natal Province and Lesotho.

    One of the major effects of global warming that the there will be wider and wilder swings in weather. And that is exactly what we are seeing. Storms of My Grandchildren are not waiting for our grandchildren, they have already started.

    Stories like this lead to wtf? moments for the public who 2 decades ago were told snow would be gone by now. But they are seeing giraffes freeze their nut sacks off.

    Progressives keep telling us it's all about the science. No it's not.....assholes.....its about what the people think.:backpedal:

    All you have to do is turn on the Weather Channel for "proof" right?

    Warming = global warming
    cooling = climate change
