We see it all the time. Lunatics point to one little cherry picked piece of data and pretend that’s proof of what they conceive as climate change.
But, the fact remains that things have always changed and they continue to do so. Only a couple of years ago, few images were more iconic than this graph as proof of “climate change”.
Well, aside from the obvious conflating of different data sets (we tracked our snow extent in an entirely different manner in 1967 than we do today), it also fails to show the entire picture. I have, in the past, demonstrated this in several different ways. Today I’ll do the same.
Is spring losing snow extent? Yeh, well, it was. Here’s April over the last 30 years.
But, does that mean the northern hemisphere is losing snow extent? Does it mean we’re losing albedo? Not necessarily. In fact, only an imbecilic dolt would assume so without looking for more information. Which, the lunatics have failed to do over the last several years. I’ll try to remember to do this again with October’s extent compared to March, but, for now September’s to April’s will have to suffice. Here’s September’s
Here’s December’s …..
Now, this is important to remember what these graphs are showing. This isn’t saying more snow in the same place, in December, it’s showing a much deeper intrusion of snow in latitudes lower than what we used to have.
Do things change? Yes, of course, they do. Is the total snow extent changing? No, it isn’t.
If you look hard enough you may find a very slight declination in the trend line. It’s actually to the tune of –2685 km2 per month. After probably November or December that trend will be entirely erased. And, likely by February, the trend will be reversed and so on as the seasons progress and change.
There has been no significance to any changes of our snow cover, only seasonal changes which have been documented throughout the history of mankind. Lunatics.
