Winter snowfall doubled, while summer snowfall increased by 50 percent. Why? Let’s blame humans.
According to pogodaiklimat.ru: scientists drilled two wells in Hunter Mountain in Denali National Park in the state of Alaska (USA). A study of the extracted ice cores shows that, since about 1840, the amount of winter snowfall in the south of central Alaska has increased by 117%. The volume of summer snowfall has increased by almost 50%.
What would cause such an increase in snowfall? This article blames human activity.
“Scientific models show that precipitation – rain or snow – increases due to global warming: warm air keeps more moisture. This is one of the reasons, but not the only one, scientists believe. Increased precipitation also gives a zone of low atmospheric pressure called the Aleutian Low (Aleutian Low) in the Bering Sea, driven by warm tropical oceans. It brings to the north of Alaska a stream of warm moist air.
“The current rate of snowfall in Alaska far exceeds its natural rate before the industrial revolution. The volume of snowfall changed when humanity began to throw greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, thereby heating the planet. This also led to a reduction in precipitation in Hawaii, the document says. At the same time, according to scientists, such a result will not necessarily repeat in other regions with similar conditions.”
Isn’t that the perfect setup? “Such a result will not necessarily repeat in other regions with similar conditions.” In other words, it’s our fault if snowfall increases. It’s also our fault if snowfall decreases.
