The coldest winter half-year in over a century!! It’s climate change all right. More CO2, please!!
I am sitting in my office in Boalsburg, Pa. looking at the bird feeder. The birds are as busy as ever feeding. It is 15 degrees F so they need the food. Some song birds have come, the Robins are bobbing, but where is the spring? Last night the report on the satellite data came out via CFACT and it showed we had the coldest winter half-year (equinox to equinox) in over a century! Only two years ago we had the warmest winter ever. This was well publicized. Will this be equally treated?
The other figure is the maximum snow cover for the season in the Northern Hemisphere. It has been growing in the last 50 years. This year was no exception with total snow well above the trend line.
I take more stock in snow totals than temperature measurements. The freezing point of water doesn’t change. Many temperature stations are placed in airports near the runways. This is fine and good for the pilots that must rely on the micro climate of the runways to make proper take-off and landing calculations, but they do not show the true temperature away from the airport.
I maintain we are more likely to have a new little ice-age than a temperature run-away because of CO2 rise.
The Great lakes had the greatest ice cover in over 35 years:
CO2 is not “Carbon Pollution”?
The storms and other extreme weather are at new lows!!
The Antarctic ice cover hit new records two years in a row!!
Summarized in “eleven sgns we are entering a new little ice age.
