The AGW Farce Continues: It Now Causes Snow

But not just any snow. Snow when it is really, really cold

Britain may be in the grip of the coldest winter for 30 years and grappling with up to a foot of snow in some places but the extreme weather is entirely consistent with global warming, claim scientists.

Temperatures for December and January were consistently 1.8 F ( 1 C) lower than the average of 41 F (5 C)and 37 F (3C) respectively and more snow fell in London this week than since the 1960s.

But despite this extreme weather, scientists say that the current cold snap does not mean that climate change is going into reverse. In fact, the surprise with which we have greeted the extreme conditions only reinforces how our climate has changed over the years.

If you want, head on over to the story to read the “reasoning” for this, I don’t like to excerpt that much from one story, and I would have to excerpt quite a bit for the explanation. But it just goes to show that AGW supporters will go to any length to buck up their theories that global warming is man made.

And the snow and ice is so bad in England that they are running out of gritting salt to treat the roads.

Their shouldn’t be any disagreement that the Earth’s overall climate warmed since the end of the Little Ice age, but, seriously, being mostly or solely caused by Mankind is absurd. And, anyhow, a rise of 1.7F in over 150 years? Big woop. But when they speak of global warming and/or climate change in the news, they mostly man made. Somehow, something that has happened again and again and again, and happened before the invention of the SUV, can’t be happening now. Gotta be Man. And then the Believers wail “someone(else) should Do Something!”

Oh, in related news, Is Punxsutawney Phil responding to global warming? Natural, sure. But, he’s an overgrown rat. Don’t read too much in to it.

    Of course it can and that’s why it’s important we understand what caused past climate changes so we can see if those causes are responsible for the most recent warming trend. It turns out climate scientists do have a good understanding of climate change in the past. There’s an entire chapter on it in the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment report (Chapter 6: Palaeoclimate).

    http://www.ipcc.ch/pdf/assessment-report/ar4/wg1/ar4-wg1-chapter6.pdf

    Climate scientists readily admit the climate has changed on all times scales throughout Earth’s history. And different climate changes had different causes (volcanic eruptions, solar output, etc.). But those natural causes cannot account for the current warming trend.

    The fact that natural factors caused climate changes in the past does not mean that the current climate change is natural. By analogy, the fact that forest fires have long been caused naturally by lightning strikes does not mean that fires cannot also be caused by a careless camper.

    Why do you keep ignoring this?

    Another sign of global climate change. Thanks for posting it. Teach London located in the southern part of the U.K. is located about how may miles north of Montreal Canada ? The only reason the U.K. is warm is because of the Gulf Stream. If that currwnt lessens then London will freeze

    LOL! Once again, Teach, you completely missed the point of the article. It’s not that AGW causes snow. The main point was that global warming is the reason that this snowfall is so extraordinary:

    If it wasn’t for global warming this cold snap would happen much more regularly. What is interesting is that we are now surprised by this kind of weather. I doubt we would have been in the 1950s because it was much more common.

    Teach, you really ought to try to just sit back and think about what you’re posting on before you write it up. You get so worked up about some new “ridiculous” item, and you seem to skim over some very important pieces of information, which would have negated your point.

    You’re making a fool of yourself. Please stop.

    You may want to do that in the future to save yourself the embarrassment.
