Heat Trapping Gases Could Totally Cause More Spring Snow Storms

I see you eating your breakfast sandwich with its horrible sausage from evil carbon pollution pigs, that you picked up while commuting to work in your evil fossil fueled vehicle: this is all your fault, and you should be forced to pay a tax to solve this whole thing, according to the people that use vast amounts of energy and fossil fuels to distribute their dead tree edition newspapers (this originally appeared in the Washington Post, and reprinted at Syracuse.com)

Climate change may mean more spring snowstorms (Commentary)

Another week, another nor’easter — the fourth powerful coastal storm of March 2018 has the big Northeast cities in its crosshairs. The region is notorious for vicious winter tempests, but four bomb cyclones in one month seems a bit much, especially when one comes on the first day of spring. March roared in like a lion. What happened to the lamb?

My New England neighborhood is usually peaceful this time of year; the quiet interrupted only by honks of Canada geese, wind in the towering white pines and the occasional hoot of a great horned owl. Not so much this winter. Rumbling generators, whining chain saws and rattling snowplows lasted many days after each pasting by Mother Nature.

We New Englanders love to talk about weather, and we revel in our toughness, but even that is different this year. After comparing stories of fallen trees and property damage, the conversation increasingly shifts to “Why?” Is there an explanation for this relentless, persistent parade of destructive cyclones, storms so strong that if you didn’t check the calendar you’d easily mistake them for hurricanes on the weather map? Perhaps.

Some climate-change skeptics always use snowstorms to argue that the planet is not actually warming. President Donald Trump, during a sharp December cold snap on the East Coast, suggested that“perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming,” which he has called a hoax. Last April, conservative news outlets rejoiced when snow canceled a march in Colorado to protest Trump’s climate policies. But rather than being evidence that climate change isn’t happening, the extreme weather the United States has seen this month should be viewed as a sign that it is.

Although the atmosphere is a complex beast, researchers are fingerprinting a variety of ways that those increasing greenhouse gases are making winter storms more powerful and more likely. It’s clear that this spate of nor’easters is being juiced by inordinately warm ocean temperatures along the East Coast, one of the key ingredients in the recipe for a good bomb cyclone. Less intuitive, though, is the increasingly clear role being played by the rapidly warming and melting Arctic.

Of course they’re finding ways to link cold, snow, and ice from storms that have always happened to the beliefs of their cult, because this is what cultists do. And when we have a mild spring, they’ll blame that on ‘climate change’. In their world, everything is linked to/caused by ‘climate change’, and this can all be solved with a tax on Other People.
