What Anthony Watts puts in the “weather is not climate department”, I’ll just put in the “sad but true” – (and hysterical) department.
Yes, boys and girls…God does have a sense of humor, Cancun has enjoyed new record low temperatures for three straight days….
Dr. Roy Spencer, who is in Cancun representing climate skepticism on behalf of CFACT writes on his blog:
Today’s my first full day in Cancun at COP-16, and as I emerged from my hotel room I was greeted by a brisk, dry, cool Canadian breeze.
It was 54 deg. F in Cancun this morning — a record low for the date. (BTW, Cancun is nowhere near Canada).
Al Gore is not supposed to be here…but it could be that the Gore Effect has announced his secret arrival. We will check into this.
No, if Al Gore were there, they’d be under five feet of snow by now.
As demonstrated by the dramatic reading of his magnum opus, “Our Choice” for the gushingly appreciative Harry Smith on The Early Show, last December:
One thin September soon
A floating continent disappears
In midnight sun
Vapors rise as
Fever settles on an acid sea
Neptune’s bones dissolve
Snow glides from the mountain
Ice fathers floods for a season
A hard rain comes quickly
Then dirt is parched
Kindling is placed in the forest
For the lightning’s celebration
Take their leave, unmourned
Horsemen ready their stirrups
Passion seeks heroes and friends
The bell of the city
On the hill is rung
The shepherd cries
The hour of choosing has arrived
Here are your tools
