CNN : Overheated Atmosphere Causes Colder Than Normal Air

(CNN) OK, go ahead and get the “Where’s my global warming?” jokes out of your system. With the U.S. Midwest trudging through its second blizzard in a week, it’s understandable.

But while it may seem contradictory at first, scientists say bigger blizzards fit the pattern they expect to see from a changing climate.

The immediate meteorological cause of the back-to-back snowstorms is a colder-than-normal mass of air that’s been hovering over the central United States, combined with an amped-up jet stream that’s been dipping south from Canada. That makes conditions ripe for major snowstorms after a warmer-than-normal January for most of the Lower 48.

How exactly do January temperatures cause end of February snowfall? Are these people complete morons? No need to answer that.

    Speaking of morons, is it just a coincidence, or is the cold weather shutting up that windbag Appell?

    “…combined with an amped-up jet stream that’s been dipping south from Canada.”

    I just read an explanation that this extreme weather was caused by WEAK jet streams, not amped-up jet streams…

    These guys should stick to one explanation.

    Are we wearing out the word “MORONS” ?

    I wish — just once — for the benefit of all the stuipid people — that they would explain just where this colder-than-normal mass of air actually comes from — in a Globally Warmed world, that is.

  4. The ice age scare in the 70’s with very cold winters and heavy snow storms was actually caused by ………………………………….wait a minute …………………………………….. global warming.

  5. Keitho says:

    They really are beyond parody now. Absolutely everything is caused by Global Warming. That’s it.

  6. ralphcramdo says:

    “because warmer air holds more moisture, a cold snap is likely to leave more snow on the ground”.

    Why don’t we have more snow in Florida than anywhere else if the above is true? We have moisture all around us, and plenty of heat before a cold snap.

  7. Justa Joe says:

    Basically they’re telling us that in a world suffering from global warming we’re all going to die from being buried under ice and snow.

    The Warmist fanatics and eco-loons have reached a new level of desperation. it’s amusing to watch them as they scramble to resurrect their moribund global warming theory. The fact that anyone still takes them seriously is an indictment of the educational system in this country. Instead embarrassing themselves repeatedly with wacky tales of a global warming Armageddon, they should be pitching sexual enhancement supplements on late-night TV. That would suit them perfectly.
