Arizona researchers say that a fungal disease killing off frogs in the state probably isn't being triggered by global warming.

Two herpetologists and a state Game and Fish Department biologist agree rising temperatures in Arizona aren't acting in the same way as they are in Central and South America, where according to a new study warming is the underlying cause for the disease killing frogs there. [...]

The Arizona scientists said global warming could threaten Arizona frog species for other reasons.

When the facts don't favor global warming "science" just fall back on faith.

Well, it hasn't rained in Arizona for three months. That might have something to do with it. And we've been in a drought for ten years.

Brandon: After ten years, isn't it "climate" rather than "drought?"

I seem to remember big rainstorms in March.

It's desert, it's supposed to rain?

How's the snowfall this year?

Last year was a biggie, IIRC.

Arizona = Arid Zone!!! = It doesn't rain much.

There was a lot of rain and snow last winter. Snowfall this winter up to yesterday was 0.1 inches, which is 0.1 inches more rain that we've had since October 17th. Yesterday was the 101st day without rain. A new record.
