In 1995, the world’s leading climate scientists at the IPCC predicted the demise of skiing.
Five years later, the University of East Anglia said children just won’t know what snow is.
And it has been almost six years since the New York Times announced the end of snow.
Meanwhile, ski areas are having record snowfall.
October snow cover has been above normal for eight consecutive years.
Autumn snow cover has been increasing for 50 years.
The IPCC predicted the exact opposite.
For the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA) model mean, at the end of the 21st century the projected reduction in the annual mean NH snow cover is 13% under the B2 scenario (ACIA, 2004). The individual model projections range from reductions of 9 to 17%. The actual reductions are greatest in spring and late autumn/early winter, indicating a shortened snow cover season (ACIA, 2004).
Winter snow cover has been increasing for 50 years.
For the entire year, snow cover has been increasing for thirty years, and above normal for most of the past decade.
We just had our coldest Halloween on record in Colorado, with temperatures 36 degrees below normal, and no place in the state above freezing.
This was how I spent the first day of summer west of Boulder.
This is what happens when climate scientists base their theory around superstition rather than science.
