There's a great round-up today on the web site called RealScience (written by Steven Goddard) titled Settled Science Update: Global Warming Means More Snow, Less Snow, Record Snow And No Snow.
Back in the heyday of the global warming scare, many warmists made the obvious prediction that warming would mean less snow. Many of them went even further and predicted the disappearance of meaningful snowfall in places like England within not many years. Then, of course, the last few years have seen above normal and even record snowfall in these very places. Obviously, that must be caused by global warming too! If you think I must be kidding, I followed some of the links at Goddard's site to come up with a few of the best quotes.
From Charles Onians in the Independent, March 20, 2000:
Britain's winter ends tomorrow with further indications of a striking environmental change: snow is starting to disappear from our lives. . . . .Global warming, the heating of the atmosphere by increased amounts of industrial gases, is now accepted as a reality by the international community. . . . . However, the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall will become "a very rare and exciting event. Children just aren't going to know what snow is," he said.
CRU, of course, is not nowhere in the climate wars, but rather home of Hockey Team leader Phil Jones, the CRU temperature series, and the Climategate e-mails.
Well, it seems that recent winters have turned out to be unusually cold and snowy in England and, for that matter, over the Eurasian continent. To find the explanation, you'll have to go to Clive Cookson in FT Magazine on January 20, 2012, summarizing a recent scholarly article in Environmental Research Letters by lead author Judah Cohen and others.
