The NYT continues its leftist lie campaign with a story on snow disappearing called ”The End of Snow” by Porter Fox, a reporter for Powder magazine.
It includes this claim:
In the last 47 years, a million square miles of spring snow cover has disappeared from the Northern Hemisphere.
Yes but skiers ski in winter. Lets check the facts.
Since 2000, claims have been made by warmists that snow would become a rare commodity. Not only would this disappoint children but would endanger the ski industry (and in New England Maple Sugar industry as the maple trees would pack their bag and move north to Canada). This claim was made to ski areas and the maple sugar industry at a summit on top of Mt. Washington by the Union of Concerned Scientists (an environmental advocacy group - not real scientists) in the summer of 2007.
That winter that followed, record snows fell from Alaska to Colorado and northeast to northern and central New England. Michael Berry, President of the National Ski Area Association said it was likely the best season ever.
Snow has been increasing in thee fall and winter the last 48 years.
4 of the top 5 snowiest winters for the northern hemisphere have occurred in the last 6 years.
Last November to April had a record snowcover for the hemisphere.
The number major impact east cost storms this decade just 4 years in is up to 13 (3 already this year), makes this the snowiest decade on record.
The snowcover today for the hemisphere is extensive even with a gap in Europe (after 5 snowy years).
The snowcover for the first week of February is 6th greatest for North America and 9th greatest for the Northern Hemisphere (out of the 48 years the NYT article claims).
Another few winters like those of recent years and maybe the psuedo-scientists and their adoring fact-less feckless media may be preserved in ice for future generation’s amusement.
