Warm air holds more moisture.

Film at eleven.

yeah it ain't global warming when that much moisture is evaporated off of the ocean and then rains down as snow! ony a fool would think that rising ocean temperatures would cause more precipitation! and non of this climate change would cause more hurricains rising seas, shell loss, and such. boo ya look at all that snow

My sister just moved there and she is a southern California girl through and through. This should be hilarious.

And Ms Shasta is going to receive 240 inches of my global warming this weekend.

/Lots of pounding, driving warming.

Then why do I wake up with a sore throat when running the heater at night. You can't explain that.

I'm an evil semi-denier, but apart from being a great opportunity to make a joke, this means nothing.

Warming may mean some place evaporate more, followed by some places receiving more precipitation.

cameroncrazy1984: RobertBruce: Also has a glacier which has been "inexplicably" growing the past few years.

It's not inexplicable. Warmer air causes more moisture in the atmosphere which then freezes at altitude. Bam, growing glacier.


I live about 30 miles from Mt Shasta and the growth of the glacier has to do with the fact that said glacier is in a very large valley created by one of its eruptions. This valley is positioned in such as way that it receives very little direct sunlight yearlong. That, the altitude (and the cool air provided by such) and the fact it receives a prodigious amount of snowfall because of the topography contributes to the growth of the glacier.

From Dr. Masters at Wunderground

The old adage, "it's too cold to snow", has some truth to it, and there is research supporting the idea that the average climate in the U.S. is colder than optimal to support the heaviest snowstorms. For example, Changnon et al. (2006) found that for the contiguous U.S. between 1900 - 2001, 61% - 80% of all heavy snowstorms of 6+ inches occurred during winters with above normal temperatures. The authors also found that 61% - 85% of all heavy snowstorms of 6+ inches occurred during winters that were wetter than average. The authors conclude, "a future with wetter and warmer winters, which is one outcome expected (National Assessment Synthesis Team 2001), will bring more heavy snowstorms of 6+ inches than in 1901 - 2000." The authors found that over the U.S. as a whole, there had been a slight but significant increase in heavy snowstorms of 6+ inches than in 1901 - 2000. If the climate continues to warm, we should expect an increase in heavy snow events for a few decades, until the climate grows so warm that we pass the point where winter temperatures are at the optimum for heavy snow events.

wee: If only "climate" had anything whatsoever to do with "weather"...


But as the climate scientist have been telling us for years, we will not necessarily see noticeable temperature changes over most of North America, but we will see shorter winter temperature regimes and a significant increase in extreme weather events. So far their predictions are dead-on. But what do they know? Farkers certainly know more about this incredibly complex collection of scientific disciplines. Amirite?

And it's why it snows exactly the same amount every year; no more, no less. That's how we know it's all God's Plan, and how there cannot possibly be climate change.
It's always amusing watching you bigots going full hurp-a-derp when nobody has mentioned a god at all.

No, what you claimed was fact has been proven to be junk science yet again, so all you have is ad hominem.

Glaciers warmers claimed would be gone by now (and drown millions as a result... are actually growing, not shrinking.

Don't let the facts get in the way of your religion.

If I remember correctly, while there is a consensus amongst scientists that global warming is real, and likely the results of the actions of man, there is no similar consensus on the effects of said warming. A lot of very smart people will argue about various effects. That's one of the big issues with "An Inconvenient Truth", is that it starts by saying "scientists agree on this..." (being climate change), and then goes on to cite studies by scientists that aren't as agreed-upon (specifically, the ones that argue that global warming is increasing the amount of hurricanes we experience).

Hey, isn't that mountain just south of a major weather convergence zone too? Who'd a thunk it would be notably different... huh...

I remember this when forecasters predicted more hurricanes every year for the same reason.

Damn those reduced numbers per year.


And look what report comes out today. Link

"There were 19 named storms in what meteorologists consider an above-average year that tied as being the third most-active season since 1851."

Damn those reduced numbers indeed.

Moisture? Atmosphere? Stupid lib. It snows because Jesus dropping his dandruff on us. Any true conservative who knows the REAL facts knows that.


Most of my family are fundie crazy jesus people.

I have literally never heard anything like that stuff from actual religious nuts, it always comes from the people trying to mock them.

Leave the mocking to those of us who actually have to mingle with them, thanks.

Also they all voted for Obama, so that kills the "conservative" jab. They bought in to the "republican war on women" stuff, so that just scared the hell out of them.

Its obviously the government weather machine. They want heavy winters so we stay inside and make more babies to be workers. Damn Obammunism!

The first laws of thermodynamics is, you cannot make energy out of nothing; has to come from someplace.

The second law of thermodynamics is, entropy always increases, which for those of you Farkers who never passed 12th grade Physics means everything is always running down.

The third law of thermodynamics is, when energy is changed in form, it always loses value.

The First Law of Causality is, if two things happen in sequence, it is not proven that one causes the other. The roosters do not cause the sunrise.

And maybe you've heard that crap that other Teahadists have said about rape not really being a good reason to get an abortion, etc... yeah, that was no "war on women" that was religious fundamentalism at its worst. I suppose you also laugh when you hear the term "Feminazi". All that has nothing to do with Republicans. Got it.
