Meteorologists Urge Caution as Iguanas Fall from Sky in Florida

No, this isn’t one of the lesser-known precursors to the rapture.

We have certainly heard our fair share of climate alarmism in recent decades.

Back in the 1970’s, carbon emissions from the burning of fossil fuels was going to insulate the planet from the sun and bring on yet another ice age.  Then, in the 80’s, aerosol from hairspray and spray paint can was the culprit, as science warned about those pesky fluorocarbons poking a hole in the atmosphere.

Of course, today we have Chicken Littles of climate change, shouting “the ice caps are melting” at the tops of their lungs.

As if to put them all to shame, often-kooky Florida has upped the ante on strange weather phenomenon with a warning about green, scaly precipitation.

The National Weather Service routinely warns people about falling rain, snow and hail, but temperatures are dropping so low in South Florida the forecasters warned residents Tuesday about falling iguanas.

“This isn’t something we usually forecast, but don’t be surprised if you see Iguanas falling from the trees tonight as lows drop into the 30s and 40s. Brrrr!” NWS Miami tweeted.

The low temperatures stun the invasive reptiles, but the iguanas won’t necessarily die. That means many will wake up as temperatures rise Wednesday.

Iguanas aren’t dangerous or aggressive to humans, but they damage seawalls, sidewalks, landscape foliage and can dig lengthy tunnels. The males can grow to at least 5 feet (1.5 meters) long and weigh nearly 20 pounds (9 kilograms).
