As world leaders at the UN Climate Summit reached an agreement to tighten the shackles of oppressive global warming regulations late November, God laughed, and the moisture from his breath touched the earth, painting the place where the Christmas story began, the Holy Land, white with snow December 13.

The same day, the Arab Spring region witnessed an Arab winter, when dusty desert streets were dusted with the first snowfall in 112 years. And last week, Australia's summer landscape became a winter wonderland.

Be it hot, cold, or in between, disciples of the pseudo-religion of global warming, will cite these natural occurrences as proof of man-caused climate change, forgetting the One who created it all did not forget to make allowances for man's existence on this planet.

All is not lost, for Australians have seen the light; given their new government was elected by a landslide running on an anti-global warming, anti-carbon tax platform. The new leadership unapologetically opposes further carbon tax and climate change contributions to the UN regulations they perceive as "socialism masquerading as environmentalism."

And what else could it be, considering the cold-hard facts pointing to a cooling planet? NASA recently confirmed East Antarctica registered the lowest temperature ever recorded on planet Earth, at minus 135.8 degrees. Besides the Lower 48 having been pummeled with record cold weather, Climate Depot reported by the end of November there were nearly 1000 record low maximum temperatures, 205 snowfall records, including blizzards and heavy snowfalls in Italy, Greece, the South Pole, Bulgaria, Macedonia, the Balkans, Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, Alaska, and Russia. In addition, the global sea ice area is the largest it has been in 25 years and the Arctic ice mass is the largest in 10 years.

With evidence piling up inch-by-snowy-inch that the planet's temperature is headed south, activists had no choice but to rebrand the name of their scheme to transfer huge bundles of Western wealth to Third World tyrants from global warming to "climate change."

Facts matter little to those like Greenpeace, who recorded a video to terrify kids wherein Santa laments, "Dear children, regrettably I bring bad tidings. For some time now melting ice here at the North Pole has made life intolerable...and there may be no alternative but to cancel Christmas... My home in the Arctic is vast disappearing and unless we all act urgently, I have to warn you of the possibility of an empty stocking forevermore..."
