More than half the U.S. is covered with snow this November, the most in ten years.
The certainty of climate scientists:
Kevin Trenberth, of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, agreed the surprising amount of snowfall is a separate issue from climate change. “If you warm up the atmosphere, you can actually get heavier snowfalls in winter,” Trenberth said. “That’s one of the ironic things about global warming. Maybe we can say that without climate change, it would be colder still. [emphasis mine]
In other words, according to Trenberth the increased snow cover and cold temperatures are evidence of global warming.
