Major Snowstorms Are Cause For “Climate Change” Concern

I’d wonder if Warmists are trolling Skeptics with this kind of insanity, but, no, they really do believe this

Major snowstorms in B.C. prompt climate-change worries

Warm weather and rain linked to the Pineapple Express weather system is forcing Mount Washington Alpine Resort on Vancouver Island to shut down its winter operations as of Monday, a rare situation that comes as industry operators fear the impact of climate change.

While too little snow put the brakes on ski season in one region of the province, Kitimat Village – a First Nations settlement near the town of Kitimat in northern British Columbia – was reeling from a major snowstorm that compelled Haisla First Nation to order the evacuation of the community’s 800 residents on Sunday. Kitimat and Terrace have received nearly two metres of snow this week from that same Pineapple Express system, which knocked out power for days and required at least one person to be airlifted to hospital.

The so-called Pineapple Express is something that has been going on for a long time, and has nothing to do with Hotcoldwetdry, much like El Nino’s, mentioned later in the article.

He added he thinks climate change is a factor in the industry’s woes, though the resort’s business director, Mr. Sharpe, said things are not that clear cut. The resort, he points out, had its deepest snowfall on record two years ago.

“It’s all over the map,” he said. “For us, it doesn’t appear that there’s an ongoing trend. It just so happened that we had a warm spell that wiped out all the snow that we did have.”

So, maybe yes, maybe no?

The Canada West Ski Areas Association, representing 135 ski areas and 153 industry suppliers, has a sharply different view, with plans at its annual convention in April to have five presentations on climate change and the environment. Part of the association’s posted climate-change policy includes diversifying into summer businesses such as ziplines, gondola rides and mountain biking.

“Climate change and adapting to climate change is a big issue for the industry,” David Lynn, association president and chief executive officer, said in an interview on Sunday.

Interesting: an industry that relies on people taking fossil fueled trips, along with vast amounts of energy to run the business, has an issue with “climate change”. So they want to diversity and make sure people use more fossil fuels and industry uses more energy during other times of the year.

Anyway, despite the hysterical headline, there really is no attempt to specifically blame “Climate Change” for big snow storms, beyond hinting. But, good news, USA Today gives it a shot with a bit of quibbling

Buried in Boston? Blame it on climate change — maybe

What’s going on? Although no individual storm can be directly linked to climate change, Boston’s snowy winter could point to weather patterns affected by global warming.

“The environment in which all storms form is now different than it was just 30 or 40 years ago because of global warming,” said Kevin Trenberth, a senior scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo.

Higher temperatures warm the oceans and allow the atmosphere to hold a greater amount of water vapor, said Brad Johnson, a meteorologist with the University of Georgia. “Both of these factors, among others, contribute to stronger storms in general,” he said.

Johnson also said scientists are not able to attribute just a single storm or series of storms directly to climate change.

So “zoMyGod we’re doomed!!!!” with a splash of ass covering. The Washington Post gives it a shot, too. Climate Crocks digs deep into the idiocy.

Just to wrap up, here’s insanity from the Detroit Free Press

    Teach snow is precipitation
    The temps in the northeast are normal not especially low
    Snow tends to be heaviest at temps close to 32f
    Pls remember that the driest large dessert is Antarctica
    Where less than 10″ rain equivalent falls each year
    It is just too cold for the air to hold much moisture warm water holds much more

  2. Jeffery says:

    Record highs this weekend here in the Midwest. We have record highs every couple of years now, it seems.

  3. John says:

    Haha those crazy warmists over at Apple just announced that they are going to build a solar power plant at a cost if almost a billion dollars
    They even said they know climate change is real
    Teach have you considered shooting them an email and telling them about your hoax ,fraud and conspiracy theories ?

  4. jl says:

    Most of the record highs were set in the 1930’s. And John, because Apple is supposedly doing this proves what?

  5. Jeffery says:

    The record highs here were set in 2009 and broken this past weekend.

  6. drowningpuppies says:

    Global warming is caused by computers.

  7. Nighthawk says:

    I also live in the Midwest and the record high was set waaaay back in 1932 at temps almost 3 times higher than they are now.

    Of course, local weather doesn’t prove or disprove climate change unless you are a warmist trying to boost your argument.

    As for Apple going to solar power? Another company playing on people’s fears to boost sales.

  8. Kevin says:

    I am not an alarmist, but I feel I have to share this with you. I set the thermostat in my fridge to 40 degrees about 5 years ago. But I noticed today that it read forty ONE degrees! That’s a one degree increase in five years. It’s clearly global warming.

    As I said, I’m not an alarmist in general. But we’re all going to die soon. I mean, at this rate, refrigerators will be 70 degrees in only 150 years. You can’t store food long-term at that temp!

    Oh, if only we’d listened to Jeff and Jeffrey, we could have taxed ourselves into the poorhouse and servitude instead.

  9. Jeffery says:

    All those whiners in Canada, Boston, New England, California, Texas, Australia, Europe, Africa, the Andes, the Philipines complaining that their climates are changing. Too much snow! Too little snow! Too hot! Too cold! Too little rain! Too much rain! Shrinking glaciers! Hurricanes! Mudslides!

    It’s their fault for building their lives and infrastructure expecting a stable climate. Didn’t they know the climate had only been stable for about 12,000 years? Didn’t they know the Earth could rapidly warm at any time?

  10. Jeffery says:

    Oh, if only we’d listened to Jeff and Jeffrey, we could have taxed ourselves into the poorhouse and servitude instead.

    Nonsense. Just another fossilist myth. I’ve noticed that fossilists repeat talking points often, but rarely support their claims with evidence.

    Can you direct me to a reasonable, scholarly discussion of the economics of transitioning to a non-fossil fuel based energy system that supports your claim?

    The conservative idea (proposed before conservatives abandoned reason) of a carbon cap and trade system assigned a responsible cost to the environmental damages associated with the dumping of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

    google helps push the fraud … solar is not the answer nor is it a real solution .. learn about the CALISO duck curve and the $$$$$ issues concerning solar integration … users get burned to subsidize politically connected greenie abusers
