You Guessed It: All of this Snow and Cold is Due to Global Warming
… so says Judah Cohen, the director of seasonal forecasting at an unspecified atmospheric and environmental research firm, in an article in today’s New York Times.
Strangely missing from the article – as from so many articles advocating AGW – are some important points:
1.) the paltriness – 6% – of man’s contribution to greenhouse gases;
2.) the state of disarray of the scientific case that man’s generation of greenhouse gas – the 6% – is the cause of global warming; and
3.) in the unlikely event man’s greenhouse activity is causing global warming, what we’re all supposed to use in place of fossil fuels to heat and light our houses, distribute food and goods, get to work, power manufacturing and business, etc., while we wait for a magical, mystery fuel to appear.
I would be remiss if I did not point to the latest, significant addition to item two: an analysis – h/t Watt’s Up With That – which reveals serious weaknesses in the global circulation models relied upon by the IPCC and their pronouncements as to man’s culpability in a 130 year (remind me how old Earth is?) warming trend.
Meanwhile, for the convenience of those of us experiencing the more local manifestation of global warming, here is the Providence radar to track the blizzard and a link to RIDOT highway cameras to check out road conditions.
