I blame die globale Erwärmung.

January 12, 2013

But… wait… aren’t the oceans rising?

A new German island appears to have formed in the North Sea, just 15 miles off the coast of Schleswig-Holstein.

Measuring 37 acres (equivalent to roughly 26 football fields), the landmass was created over the last few years by sandbanks emerging from the sea, and has already proven a hit with its first settlers: an array of (early) birds that have made the island their home.

… The new isle, which boasts sand dunes measuring up to 16ft high, has already prompted optimistic comparisons in the German press to Dubai’s man-made Palm Islands.

Quick, let’s get some people living out there so we can wring our hands over the melting ice caps some more!

An unusual storm brought snow and chaos to the Middle East yesterday (Jan. 10).

The weather system dumped 4-6 inches (10-15 centimeters) of snow on Jerusalem Wednesday night (Jan. 9) and yesterday morning, according to Jason Samenow, chief meteorologist with the Washington Post’s Capital Weather Gang.

Snow is, I take it, highly unusual in that part of the world. You don’t think Al Gore is spending some of that Al-Jazeera money on a pilgrimage, do you?
