‘Climate Change’ Could Mean 50 Feet Of Snow Or Something

From the department of

comes this bit of unhinged climate (scam) alarmism

50 feet of snow? POSSIBLE! Thank Climate Change

(starts out blabbering about weather events, linking them to Hotcoldwetdry)

Generally speaking, Illinois is warmer than it was a century ago by a yearly average of more than 1 degree. (Early projections indicate 2017’s average will be 2 degrees above normal for the year.) And, more importantly, Illinois is wetter than it used to be a century ago, by a yearly average of 4 inches of precipitation.

That happens during a typical Holocene warm period.

Worse is water. Compared to 100 years ago, Illinois now gets roughly an extra month’s precipitation annually, 40 inches vs. 36 inches. But rain doesn’t fall evenly.

“It’s extreme,” Angel said. “It’s not that every rain event is 10 to 15 percent more. We’re getting more of the heavy rain events.”

Wait, I thought the world was turning to desert? No?

So the state is now preparing to chart “once-in-a-hundred year” storms, those with 7 to 8 inches of precipitation. Such storms are coming to Illinois a lot more than once a century. Still, we are indeed a little bit lucky. (snip)

What if a monster storm hit during winter? Angel is more about preparing for bad weather than prognosticating it. But an inch of rain can be 10-12 inches of snow. Fifty feet of snow is not a pretty picture. The average temperature here may be warming, but there’s no guarantee for any given January.

“We can still have things that go against the grain. We can still have cold winters with lots of snow. They will just be fewer. That doesn’t mean there’s no climate change,” Angel said. “You kind of take the long view with climate change.”

The article seriously considered what would happen if a storm like Hurricane Harvey hit Illinois. Right. OK. Sure thing, cupcake.

Remember, these are the same people who were proclaiming the end of snow, but, when that didn’t happen, they decided to find ways to link their cult to the heavy snow and cold.

    Really? Do your readers a favor and identify these so-called typical Holocene warm period(s) and cite the data showing that what is now Illinois warmed by 2 degrees over a century or so. You’re part of science denier cult.

    TEACH typed: Wait, I thought the world was turning to desert? No?

    Now you’re just being churlishly disingenuous. You know that the predictions (and observations) are for greater variability in time and region. Some regions drier, some regions wetter. You’re part of science denier cult.

    TEACH typed: these are the same people who were proclaiming the end of snow,

    Did the author proclaim the end of snow?

    You’re the same people proclaimung that climate is controlled by an old man in the sky. You’re part of science denier cult.

      Another fine example of Ultracrepidarianism from the little guy.

      Well done.

        DP,
        Imagine how hard it is for poor Jeff. All of his treasured concepts of climate change are being debunked and shown to be fraud. Then Trump clearly lives in his brain and jeff can not seem to see how great the US is becoming in addition to the destruction of the new world order. It can’t be good for the little jerk.

        • Jeffery says:

          dave,

          Good. You want to talk about global warming. Please tell us all about the debunking of global warming and how it’s a fraud. LOL.

          Please tell us how much greater the US is now that a white nationalist is the temp president.

    Define “normal”.

    “Some regions dryer, some regions wetter….”. Perfect-so as to make it unfalsifiable. “You kind of take the long view on climate change.” Now that’s funny-said right after they looked at 100yrs, which is anyway but a long view on climate change.

    IPCC, 2001. “Climate change will decrease heavy snowstorms..” Settled Science. http://www.ipcc.ch/ipccreports/tar/wg2/index.php?idp=569

  5. Dana says:

    No snow here, but it was -1ºF when I arose this morning.

    I’ve decided that it sounds warmer to refer to it as 255 Kelvin.

  6. zock says:

    A 100-year storm can dump 8″ of rain – or in the right conditions that can be 8 feet of snow – where did the 50 feet of snow come from? Innumeracy!

    Mind blowing. Complaining of 4 extra inches of rain in a year. Only the AGW crowd.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      And little guy is an Ultracrepidarian who proclaims that climate is controlled by man.

      You’re a retard who refuses to give your employees a Trump bonus, you cheap ltitle whiney bastard.
