Global Warming Scientist Get Buried in Snow At Davos Conference
Climate scientists have set up a mock Arctic base camp at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland to demonstrate the effects of "man-made" global warming. But mother nature had other plans, dropping six feet of snow along with frigid temperatures on the conference attendees. According to NBC, The snow was so heavy that local authorities had to evacuate some of the neighborhoods due to concerns of possible avalanches.
Many of the global elites are scheduled to attend the conference but ran into many problems making their way through the heavy snow. NBC reports, "the heavy snow had already blocked the rail line through the alps from Zurich, and villages along the route were at the highest level of avalanche alert." The attendees were taken off of the trains and put on "a half-hour bus trip on back roads around the blockage and then loading them onto a crowded re commuter train that ran the rest of the way into Davos."
According to a January 2017 World Economic Forum, the camp was first set up by climate scientists in 2017 to “convey that long-term negative changes in the Arctic pose serious socio-economic risks to the rest of the world."
Scientists hope to convince global leaders to take drastic actions to fight global warming. Climate has been a major topic of past Davos meetings, and even though most of the world signed onto the Paris climate accord, experts fear it’s not enough to stop “dangerous” warming.
Yet, mother nature continues to display to the people of Earth, and more specifically the attendees in Davos, that we only have a limited understanding of all the variables that effect the weather on this planet.
