Why do the mountains of Ecuador have snow on them?

Duh?  Because it is cold.  But haven't you wondered, just a little, why is it so cold up there on the mountain, when that mountain is on the Equator?  Ecuador is Spanish for Equator, for those of you who have graduated from our high priced educational system.

 The air is thin up there, no?  Rather thin.  When mountain climbers go up there, to the highest of the peaks, they have to take oxygen along, don't they?  Maybe not in Ecuador, but the principle still applies.  High altitudes means less pressure which means colder temperatures.

Novel concept, huh?  The idea that higher pressures retain heat better.  These man made global warming bullshitters will have you believe that the carbon dioxide emitted by the burning of fossil fuels will make the global temperatures rise.  However, the amount of atmopsheric pressure added by a couple hundred parts per million is hardly measurable.  There may be more difference in pressure from your head to your feet than what has been added in atmospheric pressure from carbon dioxide added to the atmosphere since the beginning of the industrial revolution.

Yet they want you to believe that.

They got the Pope to believe it.  But the Pope is a Dope is he believes such nonsense.  Call him the Dope Pope.
