More Global Warming News

“Snowfalls are just a thing of the past.” Some booger eatin’ moh-ron (I think it was one of the Kennedys) said that about fifteen to twenty years ago.

Meanwhile in Realityville.

The two powerhouse storms that swept across the nation over the last week have left behind the most extensive early December snow cover in at least 16 years.

Snow covered the ground on nearly half of the real estate in the Lower 48 states (46.2 percent of land area) on Monday morning, the largest area on Dec. 2 since snow cover records from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration began in 2003. Normally, a little more than a quarter of the nation has snow on the ground at this time of year.

Wow! Think how bad this would be if it weren’t for global warming climate change.

The back-to-back storms instigated miserable pre- and post-Thanksgiving travel conditions, resulting in hundreds of flight cancellations and delays, and scores of highway accidents.

Last Monday and Tuesday, the first of the two storms dumped double digit snowfall totals from the Rockies to the northern Great Lakes, including 22.3 inches of snow in Boulder, Colo. and 9.2 inches in Minneapolis.

But wait! There’s more.

Mountain communities are still digging out from a powerful Thanksgiving storm that caused road closures and power outages.

The heaviest November storm to hit Big Bear in more than 50 years led to road closures, stuck cars and power outages through Saturday.

The area saw 42 to 48 inches of snow fall in two days, according to the Big Bear Mountain Resort.

The resort said the last time even close to that much snow fell in November was in 1964, when 38 inches fell over two days.

  1. On March 20, 2000, The Independent, a British newspaper, reported that “Snowfalls are just a thing of the past.” Global warming was simply making the UK too warm for heavy snowfalls. The column quotes Dr. David Viner of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia — yes, the epicenter of what would become the Climategate scandal — as saying that within a few years snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event.” Indeed, Viner opined, “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.”

  2. I too, remember the lamentations that by 2020 their grandchildren will never know the innocent joy of playing in the snow. Well, it’s late 2019 and I need two shovels: one for all the snow and another for all their bullshit.

  3. That’s the beauty of a lie. It can be whatever it needs to be. No snow? Climate change. Blizzard? Climate change. Drought? Climate change. Flood? Climate change. Scorching temperatures? Climate change. Sub-zero temps? Climate change. Tornado outbreak? Climate change. No tornadoes? Climate change. Etc, etc, etc…

  4. The UN will still issue a news release that 2019 was the hottest year on record.
    It’s on a preprinted form where they just add the year.

    • That’s kind of like my situation: being self-employed, every month I give myself the “Employee of the Month” award.

      • The warmist nuts do not even factor solar variability
        in the computer models. They also hide the roll of
        oceans as heat sinks. Veeshir at Doubleplusundead
        nailed it with this:

        “A trace gas (less than .04% or under 4 parts in 10,000) is driving the climate more than that great glowing orb of nukular fire whose effects (noon in a desert), or lack thereof (northern cold areas), can kill you in a matter of hours from 93,000,000 miles.”

  5. I am reminded of all the times that Al Gore predicted that the Earth would
    be doomed in x years if we did not take action. Most times, within a few
    weeks to a month, we were getting record snowfalls.

    Newsflash for the High Priest of Global Warming: It is best not to make your
    proclamations in Winter!

    Here is a classic by Minnesotans For Global Warming:

  6. Condensing earth’s history into a 24-hour day, we humans appeared about 2358 or so, about a minute and a half before the end of that day.

    Mankind’s entire impact on the planet has occurred in about the last 1.5 seconds, and our use of fossil fuels began in about the last few milliseconds.

    What I have trouble following is how SUVs are causing global warming on Mars and some of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn.

    • I could do the math, but I have had too much to drink
      tonight. Of that 1.5 seconds, the industrial revolution
      as it pertains to the use of so-called “fossil” fuels started
      less than 200 years ago. I read a 30+ page essay on this
      issue a few decades ago. The author’s theory is that carbon
      compounds coalesced as the planet was formed, giving us
      carbon-based fuels. The problem with the dead dinosaur
      theory is how can decomposing flora and fauna seep into
      the ground when oil deposits require geological domes
      to contain the pressure?

      The dead dinosaur theory is based on the presence of
      organisms in the oil. In their minds, organisms imply
      an organic mechanism. The other theory makes a lot
      more sense!

  7. Snowfall a thing of the past ???????? Two years ago the weather bureau at Erie Airport recorded a total of 199 inches of snowfall , 17 feet 4 inches! They tallied each days accumulations to arrive at the final total which matched what other weather observer had found .
    After the winter was over the people from the weather bureau in Cleveland said their Erie personal made a slight error of some 33 inches & Erie only received 166 inches of snow ! Gee whiz only about 14 feet of snow.
    Anyway ….Snowfall a thing of the past !………Prior to 1950 there were were only two years when snowfall totals reached 100 inches ……since then we are receiving about 110 inches of snow each winter some 9 feet. on average.
    The weather bureau is worse then the NFL referees as for accuracy!
