December Snow Cover Continues Its 50 Year Rise

After the most extensive autumn snow cover on record, December snow cover also continued its 60 year rise.  This is caused by Arctic air pushing further south than it used to.

    “..within a few years, winter snowfall will become a very rare and exciting event. Children just aren’t going to know what snow is. – Dr David Viner, CRU 2000”

    Hahaaa.. Has this pleb still got a job or has he gone full troglodyte? Haven’t heard much from him since.

      Mott MacDonald appoints Dr David Viner as principal advisor for climate change
      Mott MacDonald has appointed Dr David Viner as principal advisor for climate change. An internationally recognised expert, David brings with him 20 years of experience working in the area of climate change.

      David worked for 17 years at the University of East Anglia’s (UEA) Climatic Research Unit, where he developed a worldwide reputation working across all areas of climate change. He led UK public engagement on climate change adaptation and advised both the UK government and international agencies. During this time he was also director of the UEA’s innovative climate change masters course.

      In 2007 David took up a new position as Natural England’s principal climate change specialist where he developed an adaptation framework and indicators for climate change. In 2008 David was appointed global director at The British Council where he developed a ground breaking cultural relations strategy and programme that was delivered through 250 offices in 109 countries. Working across UK government departments and in collaboration with international agencies, businesses and national governments, the programme was publicly endorsed by the UK government, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and other leading agencies…..

      Gag, I can read any more.

      So that is what happens when you are a Climastrologist with repeated failures as a record.

        Innovative indeed, they keep innovating away the past, etc.

        … David also brings with him almost 15 years of ridicule of his year 2000 pronouncement on the future of winter snowfall in the UK …

    You know, even if it were true that the Arctic ice cap shrank simultaneously to a growing snow donut around it on land masses and lower ocean regions, that’s still consistent with global cooling. Increased Arctic cooling would cause decreased humidity and more ice sublimation on the cap, while the polar region expands.
    It’s quite possible the ice cap shrank to even less area during the past ice ages, but no humans traveled to the North Pole then, and no satellites either.

    And the Inuit DID travel around the Arctic during the last Ice Age, too. The West Coast also wasn’t ice locked which is how humans from Eurasia came into the New World which had no humans back then.

    What about the spring extent?
