Lots of alarmists are falling all over themselves claiming that this most recent snowmageddon is proof positive that climate change is occuring. They consistently ignore the weather extremes of the past and call them "irrelevent" because now we have GHG's in higher abundance etc. etc. etc. They are the definition of anti science. Science says that before you can search for something out of the ordinary as a cause of any particular observed phenomena you must first eliminate all possible "normal" explanations. Here is a wonderful example from 1921. We have had a few areas in this latest blizzard hit 20+ inches of snow. Yet those don't hold a candle to the blast of '21 when one particular are recieved 75.8 inches of snow...in a single day. It fell in Silver Lake CO. There are many more examples of extreme weather from the past and some are quite amazing. "At Mt Shasta Ski Bowl, California, 4.8 meters (or 15.75 feet) of snow fell in a single snowstorm between February 13 and 19, 1959 making it the snowiest snowstorm in the United States." "A total of 451 inches of snow were found on the ground at Tamarack, California on March 11, 1911, which was deemed a record for the deepest snow depth. The snow accumulated over time and did not come from a single storm." " The biggest piece of ice recorded on earth was an ice block that measured 6 meters (20 ft) across, which fell in Scotland on August 13, 1849." There are many more if you just choose to look for them.
