Last winter brought record snow and cold to much of Europe, Asia and Alaska. But because it was warm in Washington D.C. US climate experts determined that it was proof of global warming. The could see Russia from the window of their house.
This winter is forecast to be cold in the eastern US, and US climate scientists are already sandbagging by claiming that it will be due to low Arctic ice extent. This despite the fact that the coldest US winters occurred in the late 1970s – when Arctic ice was at its peak.
There seems to be no limit to how much nonsense US climate scientists are willing to produce to protect their jobs and funding.
