This winter has seen a surfeit of heavy snowfall and harsh winter storms, drawing the conclusion in some corners that concern about climate change is overstated. However, extreme weather of the sort battering America this season is actually a predictable result of global warming, according to a panel of scientists in Washington. The climatologists argued on Tuesday that excess moisture is absorbed into the atmosphere when ocean water evaporates in warmer weather. This, in turn, causes more intense storms.
Snow and cold was predictable, but they just forgot to predict it – and accidentally predicted the opposite. When they said “snow is a thing of the past” they were completely FOS, but now they are reliable and we can trust everything they say to keep funding coming in.
