Climate change is certainly causing more powerful storms

From the moment a powerful blizzard hit the northeastern United States — only a few weeks after comfortable, spring-like weather — the questions about climate change’s impact have been asked.

According to leading scientists, we bear some responsibility for the storm, which covered much of the inland areas with up to two feet of snow. And President Donald Trump is definitely not helping matters.

“There is a connection between global warming and the increased frequency of heavy snowstorms,” said James Hansen, a professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Columbia University. “One factor is the increased amount of water vapor that the atmosphere holds in a warmer world.” In the late 1980s, Hansen testified that climate change — and the warming of the atmosphere — leads to “greater heat waves and stronger droughts” but more rain and floods in areas.

“The ‘100-year flood’ now occurs more often than once a century,” Hansen said.

Michael E. Mann, Director of the Earth System Science Center and Distinguished Professor of Meteorology at Penn State University, observed that the warming climate is actually causing more snow. “The oceans have been at record levels of warm the past two years (and climate change is a key contributor to that),” Mann said. “That record warmth means that there is more moisture in the atmosphere that is available both to help strengthen the storm and produce record snowfalls as the warm oceanic air is entrained in toward the eastern U.S. by the cyclonic winds of the storm. Climate model simulations indicate a likelihood for stronger, more snow-making storms, and that’s what we’re seeing.”

More snow is what you get just before and during an ice age

Oh yeah, you prognosticators don't do history - I forgot
everyone would spot you as frauds if you did

More snow equals a higher and longer albedo effect.

Ugh. What I'm seeing is a return to the kind of winters we had prior to the '80s. Less cold, more snow. Bring it on, bytches.
Although it's also entirely possible that we're headed for a Heinrich Event.

We loved them as kids while we were playing little league baseball. We'd run for cover, wait it out and return to playing when it was over. The rain cooled it off and the air smelled so good. We loved it.

I don't know where you lived, but here we had both more snow and more cold prior to the 1980s.

They just pretend to be deniers.

The truth is that petros and Das actually agree with me and that's why they bump my threads.

Of course it's warming and it's because of the Russian weather machine.

A good way to look at it. Personally, I think they lack the cognitive ability to understand the implications of climate change.

Those dust storms are a direct result of the oilsands.

Or maybe it's the complete understanding of the causation and realization mankind is almost clear of the coldest point in the 8000 years and we will thrive as he always have or will suffer another glaciation without any warning.

Life as you see around you is unique to the interglacical and will be forced to adapt when Mama Gaia goes to sleep for 100,000yrs into her normal state of being.

She doesn't love you.

Don't know. We've always had them during the monsoon season. No idea what oil sands are.
