Snow Doesn’t Lie – But Climate Scientists Do

November snow extent was third highest on record, and has been above normal for ten consecutive years. There has been a huge increase in November snow extent over the past 40 years.

The cause of this increase is cold Arctic air pushing further towards the equator than it used to. Southerly places where it used to rain, precipitation is now falling as snow.

Five of the eight highest autumn snow extents have been in the last five years.

Winter snow extent is also increasing.

Snow extent has increased sharply since CO2 reached 350 PPM in 1988, and has been above normal for several years.

Arctic air is expanding towards the equator. This would not be happening if the planet was warming, so climate scientists respond by doing what they always do – they simply lie about it.

And speaking of liars, there is lots more snow headed to Katharine Hayhoe’s home in Lubbock.

    This is what should be expected, and very consistent with Global Warming theory.


    Do I need (/sarc tags)

      Rational, thinking people saw that tongue implanted firmly in your cheek.


      Any of the sheeple who read it, just got one more piece of evidence that global warming/climate change™ causes more snow (and is, of course, the fault of your SUV and the power plants that heat their homes).

      Sheeple, of course, get their news from facebook and CNN, and do not have the mental capacity to remember back just a few years ago when their warmist high priests were telling them that global warming causes less snow.

    Well Yes/No

    Yes I thought you were serious at first. Then it became obvious when you mentioned sarcasm.

    Looks like the southeast is in for some of the white stuff pretty soon also. Bet we’ll have another year where snow is on the ground in all 50 states again. Possibly multiple times this year.

  4. Anon says:

    When I see the data laid out that way, it does seem to offer an explanation for this:

    Snow covers parts of the SAHARA DESERT for the third time in 40 years as freak storm sees 16 INCHES fall in one day

    This is the third time in 37 years that the town of Ain Sefra in Algeria has seen snow cover the red sand dunes of the desert.

    *Interesting that these observances coincide with Tony’s trend lines and the Sahara is in the Northern Hemisphere.

    But it is warm snow.

  6. Frank K. says:

    More single digit and low teen temperatures for us in New Hampshire. We usually don’t get this cold until January. Well, at least it’s good news for our local skiing industry, which should have been declining by now according to the “climate change scientists”…

  7. Stephen Modzelewski says:

    How should we think about the significantly *declining* Spring snowfall extent? Any reason the Spring graph wasn’t included with the Fall and Winter graphs?

    • tonyheller says:

      Spring snow extent has been well above normal for the past two years, and for four out of the last eight years. But thanks for the BS

    • Gator says:

      So we should only focus on the one graph, and ignore the other two? Is this how post modern climatology works? I wouldn’t really know, as I was a climatology student before it became a religion.

    • Stephen Modzelewski says:

      I actually consider AGW to be vastly over-hyped (though perhaps not a total fraud), and I am often persuaded by skeptical points made here and elsewhere.

      However, the responses to my post are distressing:

      Gator: I never suggested that only one graph should be used and the other two excluded. I *asked* why two graphs were shown and the other one excluded!

      Tony: I asked two questions that any curious and fair minded person might ask, and you accuse me of posting BS. If you look through your records, you can see that I once was a financial supporter. These responses to my questions indicates a continued lack of tolerance for anybody who doesn’t drink every last drop of the Kool-Aid. If the purpose of this blog is to influence the persuadable, this episode counts as a fail.

      • Gator says:

        I *asked* why two graphs were shown and the other one excluded!

        Maybe because the subject of the post was about increasing snow extent, and not decreasing extent? But that’s just an educated guess, Stephen.

        And if you have not yet discovered that AGW is fraud, you have not spent enough time studying it.

      • rah says:

        Tony is countering the lies that are piled on us every day. Not a weekday goes by when there are not one or two new “scientific” papers claiming some BS about how man is changing the weather, or how man is going to change the weather, or how this terrible thing is going to happen in 10 to 100 years from now because of fossil fuel use. It is not hype. It is an all out propaganda campaign using all forms of media with the objective of the expansion of government power over our lives and globalism. In the end this has nothing to do with the environment or weather or climate, and everything to do with politics and forcing social change.

      • tonyheller says:

        There is no indication spring snow is declining. It declined from 1979 to 1989 (when CO2 was below 350 PPM) but over the past decade has been high in four out of the last eight years. Last two years were both top 20.

        • spike55 says:

          Is there any indication if the snow is starting earlier and also finishing slightly earlier?

          I guess we would need say monthly data to see if there has been a slight shift in “when” the snow falls

    • Louis Hooffstetter says:

      Stephen, we’re always glad to have curious and fair minded people like you who consider AGW to be vastly over-hyped. But as you can see, a lot of trolls hang out here and try to threadbomb. When you asked “How should we think about the significantly *declining* Spring snowfall extent?”, you sounded like a troll. You’re welcome here. Pay attention and you’ll learn a lot about real climate science.

    • spike55 says:

      I suspect that if the data went back further, we would see a cyclic pattern in spring snow fall.

      I suspect AMO effects slides the whole lot backwards and forwards.

      Not enough data to be certain though

  8. AndyDC says:

    Every climate expert knows that heat causes more snow. Since the Saraha Desert is a very hot place, why is it surprising that they are getting more snow?
