Crazy Warmists Continue To Blame Blizzard On “Climate Change”

I mentioned several Warmists yesterday blaming “Juno” on Hotcoldwetdry. Here are more of the unhinged

There are plenty of nutty tweets. Then there’s NY gov Andrew Cuomo

Massive snowstorms such as the one sweeping into the US north-east on Monday are “part of the changing climate”, New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, declared at a press conference announcing a state of emergency.

Cuomo said on Monday that “there is a pattern of extreme weather that we’ve never seen before” – reiterating his comments in the wake of hurricane Sandy, when he said that “anyone who says there’s not a dramatic change in weather patterns is probably denying reality.”

Of course, Bill Nye came unglued

After noting that he “just wants to introduce the idea,” Nye conceded, “Now, proving any one storm is connected, especially cold-weather events is quite difficult.” He added, “But I just want to present that.”

According to Nye, “the very strong winds that will be associated with this storm in the next couple of days, these could be connected to climate change.” Considering that this is a snowstorm in winter, Nye was careful to avoid the term “global warming.” Cycle co-host Toure cheered, “I love you for bringing that in.”

And more lunacy

While the “curator” of the Washington Post’s newly-minted online “Energy and Environment” section Chris Mooney tells us in his article that global warming may make blizzards worse by increasing the temperature of the western Atlantic ocean and thereby increasing the moisture feed into the developing storm, meteorologist Ryan Maue is quick to point out that just the opposite is likely the result—that the elevated sea surface temperatures actually act to make such storms tamer.

Maue goes on to add that it is “easy to make case that global warming weakened this blizzard significantly due to warmer [sea surface temperatures].”

So, one says “climate change” will make snow storms worse, the other says “climate change” reduced the impact. Refer back to facepalm above.

Professor Roger Pielke, Jr., is less than impressed with the pronouncements, noting that no one has been able to attribute any trends in winter storms to a human fingerprint. Of course, that won’t stop warmists. Nothing will. They live in a different world.

I saw there was an article in the New York Times of Feb. 7th, 2014 “The End of Snow?” I know, shocking.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Apologizes For Blizzard Of 2015 Forecast

These climate change people remind me of a game we played as kids. We would take turns inventing an imaginary world where we would be the ones that decided everything and were always right. When one of us did something that did not fit in this imaginary world we would simply change the world to fit. Of course as kids our world soon had no resemblance to the real world.

The climate changers may have started with lots of science type stuff that sounded impressive but their world is starting to resemble the imaginary worlds we invented as kids.

Snowmageddon 2015!

You made a lot of tough decisions expecting us to get it right, and we didn’t. Once again, I’m sorry. – Gary Szatkowski

Must’ve been that dreaded climate change which turned the six to nine inches of snow forecast for here to 1¼ inches instead.

How am I supposed to have faith in what scientists say will happen in a hundred years when they can’t get the forecast right twelve hours before it happens?

John- Why is it a “historic storm” for NYC?

nice to see the climate change abusers are immortal … they seem to know history from the big bang forward
