Al Gore: Warming Causes Snowstorms

From Al Gore’s blog:

Last week on his show Bill O’Reilly asked, “Why has southern New York turned into the tundra?” and then said he had a call into me. I appreciate the question.

As it turns out, the scientific community has been addressing this particular question for some time now and they say that increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what they have been predicting as a consequence of man-made global warming:

“In fact, scientists have been warning for at least two decades that global warming could make snowstorms more severe. Snow has two simple ingredients: cold and moisture. Warmer air collects moisture like a sponge until it hits a patch of cold air. When temperatures dip below freezing, a lot of moisture creates a lot of snow.”

“A rise in global temperature can create all sorts of havoc, ranging from hotter dry spells to colder winters, along with increasingly violent storms, flooding, forest fires and loss of endangered species.”

At least he didn’t blame the weather on George Bush.

  1. Southern New York is not tundra, tundra is cold and treeless. Some scientists believe the last Ice Age had warmer than normal climate (for then anyway). We are so shortsighted, one or two cold winters and really hot summers are not climate change. Look at the longer term trends (30 – 50 years).

  2. Or perhaps we should look at trends that are more than the blink of an eye in terms of earth’s history, say trends of thousands of years.

    What we are seeing from the recorded history of the last century is a very minor variation on which no conclusions can be drawn–nor even COULD BE if we had suffered a fifty year drought. Statistics of past climate events, even if the falsified ones as have been presented to us were true, over the period of a few decades mean squat in terms of predicting what is coming.

    Tax-sucking, politically biased scientists are playing God and so far their “Book Revelations” is showing what absolute fools they really are.
