Bummer: Sierra Nevada Snow Consistent With Past 130 Years

I’m sure this will be waved away as an “anomaly”, or perhaps we’ll hear that the study authors are in the pay of Big Oil or something

(SF Gate) Snowfall in the Sierra Nevada has remained consistent for 130 years, with no evidence that anything has changed as a result of climate change, according to a study released Tuesday.

The analysis of snowfall data in the Sierra going back to 1878 found no more or less snow overall – a result that, on the surface, appears to contradict aspects of recent climate change models.

John Christy, the Alabama state climatologist who authored the study, said the amount of snow in the mountains has not decreased in the past 50 years, a period when greenhouse gases were supposed to have increased the effects of global warming.

The heaping piles of snow that fell in the Sierra last winter and the paltry amounts this year fall within the realm of normal weather variability, he concluded.

“The dramatic claims about snow disappearing in the Sierra just are not verified,” said Christy, a climate change skeptic and director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. “It looks like you’re going to have snow for the foreseeable future.”

Interesting that they used the word “skeptic”. I don’t recall alarmists being called “alarmists” or “True Believers”, do you?

Anyhow, the Warmists end the story stating that this is entirely compatible with their conjectures, that it won’t get warm everywhere due to um, global warming.
