Northern Hemisphere Winter Snow Cover In A Hockey Stick

The amount of winter (Dec-Feb) snow cover in the Northern Hemisphere has increased dramatically since 1990 to record levels. This is because Arctic air is pushing further south in the winter.

    Global warming causes more snow.

    My GOSH, that hockey stick means I can use a hockey stick down here in NC sometime in the near future….. No where did I store my skates….

    Looking at the plot it is obvious why the IPCC did not say such a thing in their 2007 or 2013 assessment. This tells you the most important thing you need to know about the IPCC – It’s not a scientific organization! Politicians pretend that they didn’t say something when the statement clearly turns out to be wrong. Scientists, to the contrary, try to find out why they were wrong and emphasize their uncertainty.

      You don’t understand, climate change is very complicated, “if I have to explain it to you, you won’t understand it” . (you’re not a scientist. Where have you been published?) And we are 95 % certain the warming is caused by humans. Never heard those arguments before have you?

  4. Bob says:

    Winter snow has started early. There is now about 6 inches of snow cover in my yard. The trees are suffering with the heavy load and the power was out for over three hours this morning.
    This is southern Alberta. Welcome to winter!

    • Gail Combs says:

      Hope the home generator is working OK.

      • Bob says:

        Beautiful sunshine today, but at least 8 or more inches of heavy wet snow on the ground. It was -9C overnight at a time when the first frost doesn’t usually hit until Sept 15. You can hardly imagine what all this snow has done to the crops of wheat, canola, barley etc. in the area. This will be devastating to farmers.

        Now I agree weather is not climate. And I suspect the snow of the last few days will be more than we get in January (if only because January is generally our driest month!). But in all my years on this planet, and in all the places I have lived, the vagaries of weather and climate are no more unusual now than they ever were. Just the other I was commenting on how fortunate we were this year not to have hail damage our plants and shrubs. Most years we do. This year it was something else. All in all, I don’t find that the climate in Canada has changed much over the years (though my impression is that winters are warmer, but it could be that I just spend more time indoors now).

        The climate is not a problem. If there is anything to fear, it is the exhortations of man.

      Bob, before the Warmists rush in to say that “weather is not climate”, I want to say how much these “live” updates are appreciated. Especially since the cold is headed this way….

      • mjc says:

        Climate = (weather x 365.25) + (weather x 365.25)…(for 30 yrs)/30 or so ‘they’ say…

        So, any climate trend needs to start some ‘when’ with weather…

  5. daveandrews723 says:

    to Bob… Early snow with leaves still on the trees are just like California droughts. They both cause problems… not because they are unusual but because, in northern climates, man-made power lines are affected in the snow case, and in California’s droughts because California’s population of nearly 40 million people puts too much of a drain on the state’s historically-limited supplies of water. Neither, as you realize, has anything to do with “climate change.” They both have happened often in the past and will happen often again in the future.

  6. Gail Combs says:

    And it starts…

    Alerts for: City of Calgary

    First snowfall of the season possible on Monday, which everybody else in Canada will rightly make fun of you for, especially Edmonton.

    Summer will stick around for one more day in Southern Alberta before an intense cold front moves through on Monday, thereby ruining everything….

    The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.
    Perhaps it will snow every day from now on. Hard to say really…

    • rishrac says:

      I couldn’t get back to Convection cooling. I think it’s a worse case scenario for them, the incoming has dropped and the outgoing has increased. I think they are hoping no one remembers or paid much attention. Only time could properly refute that argument on the numbers, and it has.

  7. Rosco says:

    Surely a decrease in cold related mortality in many temperate countries is a good thing especially as it is the cause of a lot more mortality than heat. Besides look at the CO2 emissions saved when you don’t need to heat your home.

    You can tolerate hot humid conditions far better than freezing cold.

    • mjc says:

      The problem is that many, if not most of the Warmers, also believe that there are way too many people already on the planet. So anything that lowers the death rate of the evil, unnatural humans, is by and large a Bad Thing…
