Surprise: Heavy Erie Snow Is Totally ‘Climate Change’

Snowpocalypse Brings Wild 2017 Weather to a Fitting End

Record-breaking snowfall in Pennsylvania earlier this week turns out to be another symptom of the earth heating up at record-breaking speeds, according to government scientists, while President Donald Trump thinks global warming could help eradicate the current cold snap.

The city of Erie was pummeled with 34 inches of snow on Christmas Day — an all-time daily snowfall record, beating the previous mark of 20 inches that had stood for over 60 years. Another 24.5 inches had fallen by Tuesday night, bringing the total since December 23 to more than 63 inches.

Why did so much snow fall?

Here it comes

“The Erie snow was driven by a lake-effect event,” said Jake Crouch, scientist at NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information. “It’s been fairly warm there and the lake was not yet frozen.”

Normally, when air this cold arrives, much of Lake Erie is frozen solid, so the cold air would pass across the lake surface without gathering up much moisture. This year, the air drew up moisture from the warmer water — which then fell as masses of snow.

“If the lake had been frozen” — as it usually is at this time of year — “this weather event wouldn’t have occurred,” said Crouch.

Obviously, before you were born and decided to take up the Evil habit of driving a fossil fueled vehicle to work and taking showers longer than 2 minutes, Erie never ever got lake effect snow.

    The claim that ““If the lake had been frozen” — as it usually is at this time of year — “this weather event wouldn’t have occurred,” said Crouch” is entirely untrue, at least the ‘as it usually is at this time of year’ part of it. First, the lake rarely freezes over entirely, the last time being in 2010 and the time before that in 1996, and both times that took place in February, not December. In 2011 about 90% of Erie was frozen over which shut down the lake effect snow.

    A quick check on the ‘Net would have sent him the links to various websites, NOAA and USCG included, that showed when Erie was frozen over, or not.

    I guess anythuiing that supports the narrative is kosher, even if it is a blatant lie.
