Nothing like a cover on a cold winter’s night. And this year, that cover is a heavy one.
More than half the continental United States was covered by snow this month, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which looks at these things by satellite.
Seems normal enough — it is winter after all. But this year’s snow over is the greatest amount in the last 11 years.
It’s all the more remarkable considering that the Global Warming Lobby has been trying since 2000 to sell the idea that snowfall is going the way of the dodo.
“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” Dr. David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, told The Independent in London way back then.
Unsubstantiated word is that Viner has a new job telling the Obama administration that its health care law is working really, really well…
More to the point, though, sounds to Cheap Seats as though some inconvenient truths are piling up, like a giant snowdrift across North America.
