Ultra-Warmist Austrian Daily Awed By “Unusual Cold And Snow Amounts” In Middle East

The ultra-warmist online Austrian daily Der Standard here writes about the misery being caused as the Middle East gets walloped by “unusual cold and snow amounts“, especially the refugees of the Syrian conflict.

For many days unusually cold temperatures have gripped North Africa and the Middle East and have at times brought huge amounts of snow. While the snow-blanketed buildings of Jerusalem’s old city provide an almost idyllic picture, the snow and cold are exacerbating an already precarious situation of Syrian refugees in Lebanon near the border.”

See photos of the refugee camps at the above link. Looks like David Viner’s thing of Europe’s past has now become a thing of warm deserts.

Meanwhile the online Neuer Züricher Zeitung (NZZ) of Zurich, Switzerland, also reports on the unusual “winter drama” in the Middle East.

The NZZ writes of pyramids covered by snow for the first time in a 100 years, misery in Syria brought on by extreme cold, and a city of Jerusalem that is covered by “a thick blanket of snow“.

Misery’s common factor: Lack of energy!

The NZZ adds that energy is scarce for many: “Heating oil and cooking gas have become a luxury for many.”

Both dailies describe the misery that people there have to endure. The NZZ writes: “In Israel and in West Jordanland tens of thousands were hit by ongoing power outages.”

The commonality of the winter misery boils down to one thing: insufficient energy. Solar panels and windmills are not what’s going to help these people. They need electricity and fuel to stay warm and to cook with.

    “Rare snowfall has brought disruption to Vietnam. Forecasters say the weather system responsible for the snow has also brought unusual weather to China. Chris Fawkes has more.”

      I just checked on google maps. The areas affected are at the northern border of Vietnam, which has roughly the same latitude as the southern border of Egypt.
      The areas affected are named here:

    It is all that Global Climate Weirding caused by Global Warming.
    It now causes temperatures to drop over at least a 3rd of the World.
    God, that CO2 is powerful stuff. If only we knew how to harness it’s power.

    I wish we could bottle CO2 and sell it. 🙂

    Okay, okay, I know all about CO2 fire extinguishers. And all the snow they have inside!

    Children won’t know what sand castles are.

    See David Rose’s Sunday Mail article explaining (per JoNova) where resources are going.
