Looks like Al Gore needs to find a new scam. Nice to see that the global warming hucksters are trying to redirect the conversation to “extreme weather” and “climate change” in a desperate bid to keep their ponzi scheme afloat. Ain’t going to work though.


The first, on May 21, headed “Climate change threat to Alpine ski resorts” , reported that the entire Alpine “winter sports industry” could soon “grind to a halt for lack of snow”. The second, on December 19, headed “The Alps have best snow conditions in a generation” , reported that this winter’s Alpine snowfalls “look set to beat all records by New Year’s Day”.
