Recently, photos of the Egyptian Sphinx covered in snow went viral because it was the first time in 112 years that the landmark had been snowed on. Alas, the widely shared photos were not of the African monument, but were instead of a Sphinx replica from the Tobu World Square Theme Park in Japan. What a letdown. Every time we think that global warming may be coming to a halt, our hopes are dashed.
