According to a Heatmap Daily piece called “The Last Gasp of Winter Sports”, snow is all but done. “A new study published in Nature this month found that human-driven climate change is responsible for dramatically shrinking the Northern Hemisphere’s seasonal snowpack. While that is grave news for local ecosystems and water reservoirs, it’s also a bummer for people like me, who love to ski.” Which is strange since the Northern Hemisphere is seeing snow cover well above average, and in North America the trend is actually up in many places. But if the theory and the facts conflict, alarmists have a simple solution.
Hence the proliferation of “tipping points”, which amount to saying even though there’s no real evidence of a crisis in the actual data, one looms in the models. And so “Extreme weather threatens world’s biggest carbon store as the rainforest is already close to tipping point”. As John Shewchuk commented, “Funny how climate alarmists claim everything they see is extreme weather, while the vast majority of the rest of the planet is experiencing extreme climatic grandeur.” But it’s only because like fools we’re looking at what is happening not at what models say is going to happen.
