One of the many things I’m proud of in what Suyts brought to the table of the climate wars was a pretty regular and realistic discussion of the snow extent.
Sure, some blogs would make regular posts mocking the “thing of the past”, but, it didn’t seem to me that they showed or discussed much beyond that. I don’t know why. This is one of the easiest things to point to which entirely discredits the alarmists memes. I write “memes” because it dissolves many of their faux babbling points.
The above is a graph of the North Hemisphere snow extent. The average snow line, month to month, year to year, has not changed in over 30 years.
It is impossible for the global climate, as a whole, to have significantly changed over the past 30 years without changing the snow line of the Northern Hemisphere. Neither the precipitation of snow nor the average temperatures have changed with any significance. It is impossible to have without altering, in some way, the average snow cover. Our snow cover hasn’t changed.
Now, there has been slight changes as to the timing, but, that’s indicative of our climate being cyclical (as most skeptics believe) than anything else. There’s no getting around the remarkable sameness the snow cover has presented over the last 30 years.
I think one day, someone will pick up on this and give a coup de gras to the climatards babbling points.
