January Through April Had The Fifth Largest Snow Extent In North America

It has been the snowiest year since 1985, when CO2 was below 350 ppm. In 1985, snow was caused by cold, but modern snow is caused by heat.

You can see how dramatically snow cover has declined.

    Is there any way to calculate snow volume? I think they convert snowpack to runoff volume in the west.Even more interesting than the extent is the current record snow depth in the west. Is it possible to tie the recent sea level drop with world wide snow volume?

    But, but! You didn’t plot it correctly. You need to start at 14 M and end at 15.5 M with a very tall Y axis. Then you need to make the x axis (years) very short. Then force a linear regression through the whole mess. (:

    But its warm snow, Mr. Goddard.

    Since snow is a thing of the past, this must be something else.. Dandruff?

    I don’t see any change in what the graph generally shows. The dramatic loss of snow must be an optical illusion in the graph.

    ;O)
