Surber: Global warming causes snow and volcanoes

“This must be a parody.”

Don Surber writes at the Charleston Daily Mail:

Everything proves global warming to the true believers.

If it floods, that proves global warming.

If it doesn’t rain, that proves global warming.

If it is warm, that proves global warming.

If it is cold, that proves global warming.

And if everything proves it — nothing does really.

Now we have this nonsense from the Telegraph:

“Climate change means autumn levels of sea ice have dropped by almost 30 percent since 1979 – but this is likely to trigger more frequent cold snaps such as those that brought blizzards to the UK earlier this month. And Arctic sea ice could be to blame. Dr Jiping Liu and colleagues studied the extensive retreat of the ice in the summer and its slow recovery focusing on the impacts of this phenomenon on weather in the Northern Hemisphere. Information about snow cover, sea level pressure, surface air temperature and humidity was used to generate model simulations for the years 1979-2010. The researchers say dramatic loss of ice may alter atmospheric circulation patterns and weaken the westerly winds that blow across the North Atlantic Ocean from Canada to Europe.”

It is inane…
