The global warming scam is beginning to collapse. Even CBS News in Boston is starting to understand.
BOSTON (CBS) — Despite the snow blitz of 2015, many baby boomers still insist that, overall, we don’t get the harsh bitter cold and deep snowy winters like we did in the good ole days.
Weather records prove that just isn’t the case and despite the ongoing claims that snows are becoming rare and hurting winter sports, this millennium has been a blessing to snow lovers and winter sports enthusiasts.
The last decade stands out like a sore thumb! It has had 29 major impact northeast winter storms with NO previous 10-year period with more than 10 storms! In Boston, 7 out of the last 10 years have produced snowfall above the average 43.7 inches.
Additionally, the trend for fall snow across the northern hemisphere has been increasing, defying the forecasts over the last two decades for snows becoming an increasingly rare event. The 10-year running mean of the Boston area snowfall has skyrocketed to the highest level since snow records were kept and that goes back about 145 years!
Note the slam on Michael Mann here :
Interestingly, some scientists have stated that increasing snow is consistent with climate change because warmer air holds more moisture, more water vapor and this can result in more storms with heavy precipitation. The trick, of course, is having sufficient cold air to produce that snow. But note that 93% of the years with more than 60″ of snow in Boston were colder than average years. The reality is cooling, not warming, increases snowfall.
It was a well written article, until this point where the author threw in this global warming BS.
The greatest warming has been happening in the Arctic region and that can produce a weaker, less stable jetstream that allows frigid air to dive farther south to mix with the warmer oceans to trigger more potential snow events.

This is complete nonsense. The identical jet stream pattern occurred during the 1970’s, when Arctic sea ice was at a peak.

It snowed in Miami in 1977, while Alaska was warm.

During the 1970’s, the polar vortex was blamed on global cooling instead of global warming.
Scientists have found other indications of global cooling. For one thing there has been a noticeable expansion of the great belt of dry, high-altitude polar winds —the so-called circumpolar vortex—that sweep from west to east around the top and bottom of the world.

One step at a time. At least they are starting to get the statistics right.
Couldn’t agree more, Tony. I forwarded that article to a friend of mine, with a comment basically saying ‘this will likely be taken offline in the next 24 hours, as a) it is appearing in a major media outlet, and b) it does not agree with The Narrative.’ Your point about the obligatory genuflection to the AGW gods at the end is a good one, though, and that may keep this online. Meanwhile, we can expect the ‘open-minded, always-curious’ (sarc) scientists to call for this guy’s firing…beginning in 3…2…1… I hope I’m wrong.
sometimes (sarc) notation isn’t necessary
Well-the author need to throw in some AGW bullshit,as he is for sure interessted to be paid for further article.
+one even need to do such crap to reach the brains of AGW cultist.
If everything is anti-AGW they will feel personally insulted and claim Kock brothers paid him
(+one must consider an average author has only access to a certain kind of information,and to get untampered data without arctic warming maybe impossible for him/her)
The author had to include the bs otherwise the leftist overlords would sack him without question. No appeals or buts. Leftist overlord: “What kind of nonsense did you spout on our reputable pro-science paper?! I need no explanation for this. You are FIRED!”
Journalism is like TV meteorologist: there is no penalty for being utterly wrong.
At least the TV meteorologist apologizes.
He said “It’s all cyclical. Ocean cycles are driven by solar cycles.“.
Some people are making progress! ;)
First fire of the season in the fire place. Ice from Wednesday night has not melted and so there are still tree limbs coming down here. One fell on my old pickup truck but it’s tough to hurt that thing.
The predictions from the 1970’s seem more accurate than the more recent ones.
I think one problem for media is that there isn’t much of anything to report on weather-wise and climate-wise except for cooling. Because it’s cooling. And snowing. And the eastern US is freezing. Hard to make up BS when this is all going down in real-time. On the phone to some pals in Northern Virginia – 7″ of snow on the ground outside my friend’s house. Tell him it’s because of warm weather.
Not much to report here from Phoenix, Arizona. Just got back from a week in So Cal and actually it’s colder here in Az. Nice weather is Cal. Nice here too!
This is what happens when you no longer believe in snow.
And, as all this goes on, DMI Sea Ice Volume is increasing. Report for Nov 16th:
total 13,554 cu km, up 187 cu km since the prior day, which is 155.87% of the average growth for the day in the 16-year series, and 165.73% of the average growth for the day in the DMI-graphed. 10-year reference period.
The current volume is 97.68% of the 16-year average, and 97.16% of the 10-year reference period average. The current level is 322 cu km below the 16year average, narrowing the gap by 65 cu km since the report for the 15th.
Compared with the Sep 10 low stand, DMI Sea Ice Volume has increased 7,324 cu km, 118.17%. The most recent 1,000 cu km gain period was 7 days.
