By using the keywords nieve and neve (instead of snow) many interesting articles can be found on the Internet
Guest essay by Argiris Diamantis
Snowfall, like the present snowfall in South America, can be considered to be weather rather than to be climate. However there is a danger to this approach. Heavy snowfall can disrupt normal daily life and cause lots of victims. Unusual and heavy snowfall are certainly items of the news. But the Main Stream Media (MSM) are warm bias, they report almost every heat wave, and pay little or no attention to what many call “cold snaps”. In this way people reading the big newspapers and watching the television news get a distorted view of the world.
They are inclined to believe that global warming is happening because this message is repeated over and over again in the MSM. All news items about heat waves are considered to be proof or evidence of global warming.
By not reporting (or underreporting) about “cold snaps” the public is being brainwashed into believing that the world is warming, while it in reality is cooling.
At the moment it is very cold in many places in South America. Sure, the heaviest snow in 30 years has fallen in the Atacama desert and some media have paid attention to that. WUWT has of course has reported about it. But I am afraid that was not enough. Heavy snow in the Chilean Atacama desert seems like a piece of “weird news”, if you keep silent about all that is happening now in South America. The big problem is that you hardly find any news Google-searching with the keyword snow. If you use the words nieve (Spanish) or neve (Portuguese) instead, you will find lots of articles about what is not just a normal winter in South America. We need climate realists who speak the Spanish language (and a bit of Portuguese) more than ever to inform the world about the present snow disruption of life in South America.
Peru has declared the national emergency status because of heavy snowfall. Did you know that? Is that not news? Thousands of lives are in danger because of heavy snowfall in Bolivia. I think that is news.
I will give some links to recent news items in Spanish and Portuguese language to illustrate what I mean.
