I usually post Northern Hemisphere. But here is North America Snow Water Equivalent.
March 2000: According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.
“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.
Snow seems to be ignoring David Viner.

global warming = more water in the air = more precipitation = more snow in areas affected by cold.
Or it could be just more snow.
More importantly IPCC: “As temperatures rise, the likelihood of precipitation falling as rain rather than snow increases, especially in autumn and spring at the beginning and end of the snow season, and in areas where temperatures are near freezing. ”
Its easy to come with an explanation after a weather event and then claim it was caused by “global warming”.
Climate alarmists always blame everything on global warming except good weather.
I’ve never seen them say “Winter will be shorter and less depressing leading to less deaths by cold and flu.”
SSH: Good points. Notice how the alarmists always put in their own extreme slant rather than referring to the actual science involved in our global climate. Then again, if they don’t know anything about the science and have only media headlines…
So Global Warming can’t produce Droughts then, not with all that extra precip.
very true but that is part of natural climate cycle theory taught before the current push of AGW. In fact one of my reasons for being skeptical is I am watching in front of my eyes what I learned when I was younger. it Snows more so cold hangs on longer in the spring, and starts earlier in the fall in these cold areas, Melt occurs anyway and the Atlantic cools Check out the AMO, its shifting back toward the pre 1995 era. been alot of cooling in the north atlantic and the tropical atlantic, A nice paper to read is the late Dr William Grays on the cyclical nature of the oceans, and how it takes decades to centuries for processes to play out, Here it is if you are interested, http://tropical.atmos.colostate.edu/Includes/Documents/Publications/gray2012.pdf Doesnt exclude AGW ideas, just questions them based on the entire history of the planet which shows that climate swings are natural
I’m waiting for the AMO to switch to the cold phase for 10 years or so.
If nothing happens then I’ll convert. But until then I’m a skeptic.
Jean: What do you suggest would happen if the weather/climate got colder?
I’m only waiting for two consecutive months to pass below the 1981-2010 average. This has not happened since …..
The human is a positive feedback. That’s what causes the problem.
Having now been around long enough to have observed a full ~60 year AMO cycle, up here in the Yorkshire Dales it seems that during the positive phase the weather is warmer and wetter with less temperature extremes, while in the negative phase the weather is somewhat drier, with warmer longer summers and significantly colder winters.

Désolé, j’essaie de réfléchir par moi-même plutôt que mettre facilement des liens issus de la réflexion d’autre cerveaux. Pour la traduction, je vous laisse la réaliser.
Jean: Interesting choice of dates. Well, if we are to extend any credibility to NOAA and NASA, global temperatures have been in free-fall since 1995 (16.83C – NOAA), 1997 (16.92C) [they have an interesting excuse for that]. Within the last 20 years there has been no statistically significant increase at all globally with the Northern Hemisphere (specifically the U.S.) actually cooling.
If we are to believe that an actual global temperature can be determined, within the last five years, we haven’t been able to get above 15C.
Sure, all that snow will melt, but in the meantime it’s going to reflect a lot of incoming solar insolation. And that’s a good thing if you’re a climate alarmist. Best to protect that Arctic tundra from reverting back to its original steppe condition by covering it—and the methane trapped inside of it—under snow and ice.
