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.

    English ‘know-how’. Not. (Not to mention government)

    The satellite period with no warming now exceeds the satellite period with warming!!
    What does it mean? It means Gore, Hansen, Mann et al should recant their new religion as there is no carbon messiah and no carbon dioxide devil.

      Those Charlatans won’t recant. They’d end up in the poorhouse if they did. Been telling too much BS for too long to change now.

      Once a BS Artist always a BS Artist.

    • Mark Urbo says:

      I’ve said that for years. The uptick in the curve (what you’re calling the warming satellite period) would soon be eclipsed by and equally significant downtick in temps…

      The especially ironic part is that the alarmists built their whole case on and during the uptick, yet won’t acknowledge that the downtick has any significance.

    Maybe it’s some kind of “Viner effect” in action.
    We should call this guy to make a guest post here with lots and lots of predictions, say, for the next 6 years.
    We’d probably end this decade with climate temps at LIA levels.
    I imagine how interesting would be if NP Al Gore himself would pay us a visit here…
    well, THAT would be funny!!:-)

    Excessive precipitation (snow, rain, sleet) is caused by increased moisture in the atmosphere. Excessive moisture in the atmosphere is caused by increased evaporation from large bodies of water. Increased evaporation is caused by increased heat absorption by those bodies of water.
    This is not all that difficult. Warming of the oceans can cause increased snowfall under the right conditions.

    • I see, so what you are saying is that it doesn’t normally snow in Louisiana because it just isn’t humid enough along the Gulf Coast. How is the lobotomy working out for you?

    • Sunsettommy says:

      Then why does it only rain in Manila where the humidity there is always around 90% level?

    • gofer says:

      This analysis from NOAA’s Climate Scene Investigators (CSI) shows that there’s no historical signature which would implicate a human fingerprint, or as they say:

      “Specifically, they wanted to know if human-induced global warming could have caused the snowstorms due to the fact that a warmer atmosphere holds more water vapor. The CSI Team’s analysis indicates that’s not likely. They 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.” —WUWT

      Sorry Roland, but the facts are not on your side…

      Abstract
      U.S. hourly surface observations are examined at 145 stations to identify annual and seasonal changes in temperature, dewpoint, relative humidity and specific humidity since 1930. Due to numerous systematic instrument changes that have occurred, a homogeneity assessment was performed on temperatures and dewpoints. Dewpoints contained higher breakpoint detection rates associated with instrumentation changes than temperatures. Temperature trends were tempered by adjusting the data, while dewpoints were unaffected. The effects were the same whether the adjustments were based on statistically-detected or fixed-year breakpoints. Average long-term trends (1930 – 2010) indicate that temperature has warmed, but little change has occurred in dewpoint and specific humidity. Warming is strongest in spring. There is evidence of inhomogeneity in the relative humidity record that primarily affects data prior to 1950. Therefore long-term decreases in relative humidity, that are strongest in winter, need to be viewed with caution.

      Trends since 1947 indicate that the warming of temperatures has coincided with increases in dewpoints and a moistening of specific humidity. This moistening is especially pronounced during the summer in the Midwest. Nationally, trends in relative humidity show little change for the period 1947 – 2010 during which these data are more homogeneous. However, moistening has occurred throughout the central U.S. while other regions have seen drying. Urban-related warming and drying trends are present in the data but their effect is minimal. Regional changes in landuse and moisture availability are likely influencing trends in atmospheric moisture.”

      The empirical evidence says contrary.

      According to esrl.noaa satellite radiosonde measurements show global humidity has been decreasing since the 50′s.
