Remember — The Science Has Been Settled And We Should Never Question The Settled Science Of The Experts

Climate Change 2001:
Working Group II: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability

Milder winter temperatures will decrease heavy snowstorms but could cause an increase in freezing rain if average daily temperatures fluctuate about the freezing point.

Climate Change And The Blizzard: Nor’easters More Fierce With Global Warming, Scientists Say

As Trenberth explained, the ideal temperature for a blizzard is just below freezing — just cold enough to crystalize water into snow.

“In the past, temperatures at this time of year would have been a lot below freezing,” Trenberth said. In other words, it’s been too cold to snow heavily.

Michael Oppenheimer, a climate change expert at Princeton University, said global warming is increasing extreme storms. “Storms like this tend to be heavier than they used to be,” he told HuffPost. “That’s a fact.”

Clearly, the science has settled to the climate phenomena of moreless snow.

    How in this world do you weigh a storm?…….heavier
    Talk about a weasel word!

    Freezing rain really has nothing to do with temperatures fluctuating around the freezing point. They occur through a natural occurrence. Warm air is lighter than cold air, so it rises. And if the cold air under it is under 32 degrees F (0 degrees C), then it falls as rain, and freezes when it gets here (unless the cold layer is large enough, in which case it is sleet).

    The only thing settled is that Alarmists do not know science.

    There is only one way to define the meaning of ‘settle’ here, and that is what you would do when making beer or wine – you give it sufficient time to settle out the lees. That is the raw liquid has in it what you need but is contaminated with some other unpalatable sediments. These sediments will make you ill if you drink too much of them. This unpalatable dross, given enough time will clump together and sink to the bottom of the vessel allowing the clear liquor to be extracted, and the nasty sediment thrown out. But clarifier added to the raw cloudy liquid will speed-up the settling process, making the process faster, more repeatable, and most importantly allowing earlier enjoyment of your efforts.

    So in climate matters, as in wine making, a clarifier added at the right time, will swiftly remove the unpalatable, dying, and dangerous dregs, and leave us with a beautiful clear product that will improve with age.

    Now, how to find a good swift clarifier?
