The ‘Global Warming’ that has caused record-breaking blizzards on the East Coast will deliver yet another punch this weekend. According to bloomberg.com, another major winter storm could drop as much as 13 inches of new snow on New York by Saturday evening.
Alarmists have insisted that such heavy snows are the result of global warming or “climate change” (as if the climate were not expected to change naturally). As one commenter put it:
“As the oceans grow warmer, there is more moisture taken into the atmosphere. The resulting weather temperature extremes generate energy causing more violent storms.”
I believe the commenter is referring to the alarmists’ claim that global warming will cause more numerous and more violent hurricanes. If so, that claim has been pretty much debunked. The most likely cause of these bigger snowstorms is the localized increase of ocean temperatures off the West Coast known as “El Nino.” El Nino and the accompanying La Nina are the result of naturally occurring cycles in ocean temperatures over a limited area.

But, for those who believe heavier snowfall is the result of climate change or global warming, I invite you to watch this video.
