No Correlation Between Arctic Ice And Northern Hemisphere Snow Extent

http://climate.rutgers.edu/snowcover/table_area.php?ui_set=0&ui_sort=1

There has been amazing amounts of noise from the climate science community claiming that the extensive snow cover this year is due to a lack of Arctic ice. But as you can see in the graph above, there is no correlation between Arctic ice extent and snow cover. Some years have more snow, some years have less snow. Arctic ice has nothing to do with it.

    Did they specifically say it was due to the lack of Arctic ice extent or just lack of Arctic ice? I genuinely don’t know but the difference between both is very significant.

  2. Just think, if it gets hot enough from “global warming” Indians in the Amazon will be living in igloos.

  3. MikeTheDenier says:

    I guess this is another case of warm(cold) causing all the snow.

    Berlin sees most snow in December since 1900s

    BERLIN, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) — German capital Berlin has experienced more snow this month than any other December of past 110 years, as more bitter cold is expected in the country’s east, the German Weather Service (DWD) said Tuesday.

  4. They insult our intelligence when we don’t believe them that warming causes snow and cold, but they were just saying something different. I can’t keep up with the latest theories.

    • Mike Davis says:

      They can not keep up with their latest theories either. That is why they keep changing the end results. Thirty Thousand years ago the Globe was experiencing Catastrophic Global Warming that wiped out many species and reduced humanity to a small number in temperate regions and it is all because of our using Fossil Fuels today. It was the Global Warming that caused the Glacial Maximum! You See!

  5. Latitude says:

    Since it’s supposedly been gradually getting warmer, Arctic ice has gradually become less…
    You would think, according to them, that snow would have gradually increased.

    Must have hit a tipping point this year……………………………..LOL

  6. Curious says:

    Why is it that every time the snow cover figures are plotted a trend line is never drawn?

    Saying “Some years have more snow, some years have less snow. Arctic ice has nothing to do with it.” is not very useful because the ice does the same and frankly to my eye it looks like since 1980 the snow has been increasing.

    Wouldn’t it be easier to see if there is a correlation with a trend line and also only use snow cover data from 1980, not 1968, to match the ice data?

    Is the recent drop in global temps on UAH Ch 4 real?. It shows .8 degrees less than last year. http://discover.itsc.uah.edu/amsutemps/execute.csh?amsutemps
    Its worst than we thought.

    • I’m starting to suspect that UAH has calibration problems.

      • Mike Davis says:

        UAH or if you will the MSU is measuring the troposphere at a distance above the ground and not surface temperature. With a long enough history we will have a better understanding of global temperatures after the “Bugs” are worked out of the System. You need to keep in mind that there have been different measuring devises and the results have been patched together to arrive at the current record. Now it is little better than anecdotal evidence that something is going on as the record is not long enough. Maybe in a couple of hundred years!

  8. Andy Weiss says:

    Maybe they can find a connection between snowcover and the number of times Al Gore picks his nose!

  9. J. Craig says:

    Correlation is not causation. Its one of the first things a person learns in beginners statistics. “Move along folks. Nothing to see here.” Charles Manson eats carrots therefore eating carrots causes a person to become a homicidal maniac. The presence or absence of snow or ice are not dependent on each other.
