Peru’s mountain people face fight for survival in a bitter winter, says the Guardian.
Never mind that Peru is in the Southern Hemisphere and is not winter there now, the world is freezing and the Guardian is spinning:
In a world growing ever hotter, Huancavelica is an anomaly. These communities, living at the edge of what is possible, face extinction because of increasingly cold conditions in their own microclimate, which may have been altered by the rapid melting of the glaciers.
The glaciers melted because of global warming and that made it too cold in Peru?
As Don puts it,
Earlier and colder winters are now defined as global warming.
The Guardian would do better to realize that what is endangering the lives of the poor people in the Andes is not global warming, but factors that the Guardian mentions in its own article:
a lack of basic health services, animal diseases, rising food prices and a declining availability of water.
All of these factors are man-made. “Global warming” is not.
