“The Taklamakan Desert in China is often called The Desert of Death because it has very little water; therefore it is hazardous to cross,” says Argiris.

  1. Apparently the desert was completely covered in snow for the first time in 2008. This happened during what they called ‘the Chinese winter storms episode’. There were snow storms which lasted about 6 weeks – China’s worst weather in half a century. About seven million people were affected. They blamed it on El Nino, not climate change. Couldn’t have anything to do with the LIA, could it? Never. 🙂
