Alarmist Climate Scientists of Two Minds About Snow

Snow020610.jpgClimategate scientists: Global warming theory proved. It’s a travesty that we can’t say why (except we do).

Writing in the Examiner today, Senior Fellow Dana Joel Gattuso says: “It’s too bad we can’t read climate scientist Kevin Trenberth’s emails anymore.”

He’s the climate scientist and lead IPCC report author, Dana reminds readers, who wrote in what are now called the Climategate emails, “we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t.”

(I’m guessing Dr. Trenberth and the other scientists caught up in Climategate write only very, very careful emails these days. Like, “I’ll be home at 5 o’clock.”)

Dana also quotes others in the climate community explaining that recent snowstorms could be caused by global warming:

“In the context of global warming, extreme atmospheric flows are causing extreme climate incidents to appear more frequently.”

“It’s not hard at all to get temperatures cold enough for snow in a world experiencing global warming.”

“There is some evidence that climate change could in fact make such massive snowstorms more common, even as the world continues to warm.”

(Ever notice that skeptics are not supposed to use snowstorms as reason to be skeptical of the global warming theory [see Keith Olbermann, here, for instance], but the global warming alarmists use them to claim support for their theory?)
