If you listen to Al Gore, King of the Global Warming Moonbats and Master of His Own Second Chakra, all this snow we’ve been getting this winter is caused by man made global warming.
“In fact, scientists have been warning for at least two decades that global warming could make snowstorms more severe. Snow has two simple ingredients: cold and moisture. Warmer air collects moisture like a sponge until it hits a patch of cold air. When temperatures dip below freezing, a lot of moisture creates a lot of snow.”
The NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), part of the US Department of Commerce and believers of the global warming hoax, say that the snowy offered by the former Vice President and inventor of the internet are pure nonsense.
After last years snow-filled winter the NOAA issued a report in March 2010 which said:
They [NOAA investigators] found no evidence — no human “fingerprints” — to implicate our involvement in the snowstorms. If global warming was the culprit, the team would have expected to find a gradual increase in heavy snowstorms in the mid-Atlantic region as temperatures rose during the past century. But historical analysis revealed no such increase in snowfall. Nor did the CSI team find any indication of an upward trend in winter precipitation along the eastern seaboard…..
….The CSI Team found abundant historical evidence of heavy mid-Atlantic snowstorms whenever an El Niño and a negative NAO acted in concert, further supporting their conclusion that the record-setting snowstorms were the result of natural causes. But could global warming have elevated the potency of this dynamic duo? Again, the CSI Team didn’t find a connection.
Some of you may be thinking “well that was last year,” and you would be totally justified except for the fact that two weeks ago the NOAA said, just like last year, this year’s snow has nothing to do with man:
This is the second consecutive very wintry winter in the eastern United States. Last year, NOAA climate scientists concluded the record-breaking snowstorms most likely resulted from the combination of two natural climate patterns: El Niño and the Arctic Oscillation.
So what about this year? Last winter’s El Niño has flipped to La Niña, as temperatures in the eastern tropical Pacific have been cooler than normal. But the Arctic Oscillation seems to be in a repeat pattern, with conditions this December and January very similar to last winter, according to Deke Arndt, Chief of the Climate Monitoring Branch at NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center.
Sorry Al, but just like other your bogus claims about man-made global warming this one does not hold water. Maybe you can contemplate on your second chakra for a while and come up with a new hoax to peddle.
