Another epic blizzard is bearing down on New England. There is a big part played by human-induced climate change, especially warming-fueled ocean temperatures.

In winter it is cold over the continent. But it is warm over the oceans and the contrast between the cold continent and the warm Gulf Stream and surrounding waters is increasing. At present sea surface temperatures are more the 2F above normal over huge expanses (1000 miles) off the east coast and water vapor in the atmosphere is about 10% higher as a result. About half of this can be attributed to climate change.

Science deniers, please take out a post-it note and write down the following:

Climate and weather are not the same.

All weather is a function of one thing - HEAT.

Now stick the post-it on your bathroom mirror and read it every morning.

Like a baseball player on steroids, our climate system is breaking records at an unnatural pace. And like a baseball player on steroids, it’s the wrong question to ask whether a given home run is “caused” by steroids. As Trenberth wrote in his must-read analysis, “How To Relate Climate Extremes to Climate Change,” the “answer to the oft-asked question of whether an event is caused by climate change is that it is the wrong question. All weather events are affected by climate change because the environment in which they occur is warmer and moister than it used to be.”

One of the most robust scientific findings is the direct connection between global warming and more extreme precipitation or deluges. “Basic physics tells us that a warmer atmosphere is able to hold more moisture — at a rate of approximately 7 per cent increase per degree [Celsius] warming,” as the U.K. Met Office explained in its 2014 update on climate science. “This is expected to lead to similar percentage increases in heavy rainfall, which has generally been borne out by models and observed changes in daily rainfall.”

I predicted there would be many stupid threads this winter for the far-right anti-science folks, so I post this as a public service.

Enjoy!

We would take that advice more seriously if global warming wasn't blamed for everything from Acne to Zits. Climate science is the one using weather to 'prove' its case, not the skeptics.

Is climate change cyclical or peculiar to our "industrial age era?"

Another epic blizzard is bearing down on New England. There is a big part played by human-induced climate change, especially warming-fueled ocean temperatures.

In winter it is cold over the continent. But it is warm over the oceans and the contrast between the cold continent and the warm Gulf Stream and surrounding waters is increasing. At present sea surface temperatures are more the 2F above normal over huge expanses (1000 miles) off the east coast and water vapor in the atmosphere is about 10% higher as a result. About half of this can be attributed to climate change.

Science deniers, please take out a post-it note and write down the following:

Climate and weather are not the same.

All weather is a function of one thing - HEAT.

Now stick the post-it on your bathroom mirror and read it every morning.

Like a baseball player on steroids, our climate system is breaking records at an unnatural pace. And like a baseball player on steroids, it’s the wrong question to ask whether a given home run is “caused” by steroids. As Trenberth wrote in his must-read analysis, “How To Relate Climate Extremes to Climate Change,” the “answer to the oft-asked question of whether an event is caused by climate change is that it is the wrong question. All weather events are affected by climate change because the environment in which they occur is warmer and moister than it used to be.”

One of the most robust scientific findings is the direct connection between global warming and more extreme precipitation or deluges. “Basic physics tells us that a warmer atmosphere is able to hold more moisture — at a rate of approximately 7 per cent increase per degree [Celsius] warming,” as the U.K. Met Office explained in its 2014 update on climate science. “This is expected to lead to similar percentage increases in heavy rainfall, which has generally been borne out by models and observed changes in daily rainfall.”

Give nut a break. He has never picked up a book. We had worse storms in the 1970s. Hell New York didn't even get hit this time. Gotta admit though their desperate local affiliates were pretty hilarious. The Blizzard mobile on CNN was epic.

An explanation of the way that warming can cause persistant cold storms.
certainly! It's so because she says so! Why is it you all can never provide one of these that has actually been tested? the stupid again never takes a day off for you all.

Hey JC, she is a Phd Meteorologist. So we are to take the meandering of a proven ignoramous like you concerning weather over what Dr. Francis has to say?

She is one of the few left who do not believe in the paradoxical presentation of earths systems. IN a truly warming world the arctic jet would never make it to 40 deg lat. Our current polar jet is dipping into the -20 lat region (across the equator) collecting massive amounts of heat and cooling the region. Satellite observed heat loss in our arctic polar region is currently 10 times the amount seen just 15 years ago now averaging 355w/m^2 (During night time hours). The main stream media wont tell you that the equatorial regions are 1-3 deg C cooler than just 20 years ago.

The IPCC and others wont tell you that because it would out them as the liars they are.

nah, but I do want proof, and so far you and yours have provided exactly nothing. please, by all means introduce her experiment that proves what is in that video. You have that? Until then, it is just more of your mumbo jumbo talk. stupid on stupid.

And the last five years have definately given credance to what she has to say.
and no different than the 70's and the 80's so what? NO DIFFERENT!!!!!!!!!! in 40 years NO DIFFERENT. No extremes, nothing unusual. the only thing that is unusual is the lying presented by the liars on the left. manipulating and changing temperature records, while observed temperatures have stayed the same for 40 YEARS....

The Little Ice Age is a documented fact by scientists.
"NASA defines the term as a cold period between AD 1550 and 1850 and notes three particularly cold intervals: one beginning about 1650, another about 1770, and the last in 1850, each separated by intervals of slight warming."
I am quite certain that the facts within the above quote has nothing to do with the cyclical nature of climate. ;)
