*sigh*

You do know that we've other regions besides deserts, right?

The annual snowfall averages 100.3 inches (255 cm), placing Flagstaff among the snowiest incorporated cities in the United States.

But we follow that with this.

Overall, the city features an average of 276 days without precipitation each year.

So ... yeah. Areas with lots of snow AND little rain.

Considering there's a link in the article to AZ Snowbowl conditions, subby is either trolling or a moron.

Welcome to 7,000 feet, Subby. Catch your breath.

Don't forget pools in Phoenix were freezing over two weeks ago. Extreme weather conditions from climate change? Nah. What that was people throwing ice blocks into their pools to get in on the polar bear club shenanigans.

Anyways, global mean temperature is easily quantifiable. I am taking no sides here so have at it jerkoffs.

I know you are trying to show Arizona as a vast desert wasteland, but you might want to use a picture that doesn't have snowcapped mountains in the background.

Subby, you just don't understand. Global Warming causes colder weather. It's science! If you doubt it you are obviously a moron, a Denier (who needs to spend a few months, possibly years, in an educational camp setting), and anti-Science.

Oh look, subby got an actual bite! I figured even our most gullible farkers would realize that Arizona has mountains. I should know by now to never bet against human stupidity.

Actually, no, I was trying to show the result of what happens when something falls from a high altitude in Arizona. In other words, it was a joke, not a comment pro or con climate change.

Some of the previous comments on my post make sense to me now.

I fail. *hangs head in shame*

Arizona is no desert wasteland. Why, they average over 12 inches of precipitation a year in that tropical paradise down there. Up here in Nevada, however, we and our 7 inches of precipitation a year know a thing or two about desert wastelands.

This is how you do a wasteland.

I bet the flat in your photo is devoid of plant life because of salt, not lack of rain.

Yuma, AZ is in the driest part of Arizona, receiving just under 4 inches of precipitation annually.  Yet the area has some green.

No warming in a dozen years.



This is bit of a lie since you've cherry-picked slightly less than a dozen years. A dozen years looks more like this:

Probably not statistically significant, and definitely not climatologically significant, but showing the opposite of what you wish.

This one of those old standby headline trolls that's guaranteed win, just like the Austria/Australia meme always draws out a couple suckers. I'm honestly surprised so many people took it seriously
