Climate Change, Then and Now
In February, 2014, in asking "The End of Snow?", the NY Times noted that Europe would lose ski resorts if the warming continue. It then warned…
The same could happen in the United States, where in the Northeast, more than half of the 103 ski resorts may no longer be viable in 30 years because of warmer winters.
That was then. This is USA Today.
Last month, Siberia experienced record snowfall and the worst blizzard in a decade.
Above-average snow cover in Siberia is believed to affect the now-famous polar vortex and send bitterly cold temperatures to the Northeast. This happens when the Arctic Oscillation, a climate pattern, shifts.
The headline on the article reads, "Record Siberian snow could bode ill for Northeast". So it’s bad news for New England if it doesn’t snow, and it’s bad news if it does. That’s why it’s impossible to argue with the Climate Change crows; no matter the news, it’s bad.
Yes, yes, climate vs. weather they tell us. But they don’t listen to suggestions that last years temps were just weather, and that the Arctic wind pattern that may bring all that cold to the northeast US may be the planet’s way of adjusting.
Oh, and predictions of global cooling are not off the table, either.
