More Snow Hits the Fan this Week: Climate Change Alarmists Still Want it Both Ways

January 31st, 2022 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

As I predicted, climate change has been blamed for the recent New England blizzard (e.g. from Bloomberg here). During that storm, Boston tied its 24-hr snowfall record at 23.6 inches.

Yet, as recently as January 6, we were told by USAToday that Boston’s lengthy 316-day streak *without* one inch of snowfall as of January 1st was caused by global warming.

So, which is it? Global warming causes less snow, or more snow?

When science produces contradictory claims, is it really science?

What’s coming up next is a snow and ice storm that will stretch all the way from the southern Rockies to northern New England. Here are NAM model forecast totals of snow, ice pellets, and freezing rain (respectively) from Tuesday evening through Thursday evening. All of the forecast models I follow (ECMWF, GFS, NAM, and Canadian) are in general agreement, with some variation in the north-south positioning:

Not shown is the westward extension of this into NW Texas, Colorado, and New Mexico. Also not shown is the eastward spreading of this mess into northern New England through Friday.

If anything like this forecast verifies, it’s going to cause huge disruptions.

    You’re not aware that you’re contradicting yourself, in this comment? Warming cannot cause less snow & also cause more snow, which is what the MSM regularly claims.
    Less or More, which is it?

    Its also quite possible that you have no scientific verifiable data to prove its quite possible which as you well know isnt a verifiable claim.

    First of all, at the start of each round both teams will get a certain amount of money based on whether they won or lost the previous round. Sometimes teams will have enough to buy everything they need to best execute their gameplan. When they dont have enough for that, they will need to use tricks and different tactics in order to make the best of what they have. This can lead to extremely exciting gameplay to watch, especially in competitive environments.
