Global Warming Hits South America

June 29th, 2011

Five of South America’s major fruit-producing countries have witnessed an historic cold snap over the last week, including a snowstorm in the Argentine citrus region of Tucumán.

Low temperatures were registered in Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, Peru and Bolivia.

The blizzard hit Tucumán on Friday in conditions not seen since 1920, while the Brazilian state of Santa Caterina recorded a wind chill of -25°C (-13°F), website Infobae.com reported.

    Kevin Trenberth can’t find missing heat but he calls the scientists over at NOAA idiots for disagreeing with him that extreme weather is not a figment of his imagination.

    The southern hemisphere doesn’t count….don’t you know?
    No matter what goes on down there, it’s not global warming, it does not conflict with global warming………………………….
    The entire Amazon basin could be covered in snow……don’t matter

    If the first paragraph had read:

    Five of South America’s major fruit-producing countries have witnessed an historic heatwave over the last week, including a sandstorm in the Argentine citrus region of Tucumán.

    Warmists would be all over it as a sign of global warming. ;) In reality it’s just the weather, for now.

    Cold winter & spring in the Northern hemisphere, developing Cold winter in the southern hemisphere, CCX dead, Copenhagen DOA, Kyoto dead, Bonn DOA, Federal Cap & Trade legislation DEAD, Solar activity at a low period

    What’s a inveterate die hard warmist to do? Lash out in all directions, blame the Koch Bros, Palin, Limbaugh, Beck, and tea partiers. Call everybody names. React hysterically.

    Lots of nice pictures of the recent snow in tropical Brazil here. The capybara sitting on frosty grass is existentially weird.

    Is this caused by the open Artic, too? If so, there’s an asymmetry here that’s crying out for explanation. (Where’s Ill Wind when you need him?)
