AGW/Global Warming DOES NOT CAUSE EXTREME WINTERS!
Another AGW fabrication bites the dust. Hey, hey, hey!
Recall last year and the year before and the year before that one, the cultish adherents of AGW started spinning that warming = cooling. Which made zero sense!
So imagine my absolute non surprise this chilly, below normal temperature, first week of spring gone and done morning, to read this news?
Global Warming/AGW DOES NOT CAUSE extreme winters
Cold snaps like the ones that hit the eastern United States in the past winters are not a consequence of (global warming AGW) climate change. Scientists at ETH Zurich and the California Institute of Technology have shown that global warming actually tends to reduce temperature variability
Repeated cold snaps led to temperatures far below freezing across the eastern (central) United States (and Canada & parts of Europe etc...) in the past two winters. Parts of the Niagara Falls froze, and ice floes formed on Lake Michigan. Pictures of icy, snow-covered cities made their way around the world, raising the question of whether (Global warming/AGW) climate change could be responsible for these extreme events.
Temperature range will decrease
Scientists at ETH Zurich and at the California Institute of Technology, led by Tapio Schneider, professor of climate dynamics at ETH Zurich, have come to a different conclusion. They used climate simulations and theoretical arguments to show that in most places, the range of temperature fluctuations will decrease as the climate warms. So not only will cold snaps become rarer simply because the climate is warming. Additionally, their frequency will be reduced because fluctuations about the warming mean temperature also become smaller, the scientists wrote in the latest issue of the Journal of Climate.
Temperature fluctuations or extremes should lessen. And cold snaps will become more rare because of global temperature equalization according to AGW/Global warming theory. That is not what is happening, at all!
