That snow outside is what global warming looks like. Unusually cold winters may make you think scientists have got it all wrong. But the data reveal a chilling truth. There is now strong evidence to suggest that the unusually cold winters of the last two years in the UK are the result of heating elsewhere.

The warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become « a very rare and exciting event ». « Children just aren’t going to know what snow is, » he said.

The effect of increased autumn snow cover is to intensify the seasonal cooling of the Eurasian continent and strengthen the area of high pressure that forms over Siberia in the winter. As a result the Arctic Oscillation, the atmospheric pressure pattern in the mid-to-high latitudes, is more likely to be in the “negative phase” that feeds cold polar air across the eastern half of the US and northern Europe.

In Virginia, the weather also has changed dramatically. Recently arrived residents in the northern suburbs, accustomed to today’s anemic winters, might find it astonishing to learn that there were once ski runs on Ballantrae Hill in McLean, with a rope tow and local ski club. Snow is so scarce today that most Virginia children probably don’t own a sled.

Snow is consistent with global warming, say scientists. Britain may be in the grip of the coldest winter for 30 years and grappling with up to a foot of snow in some places but the extreme weather is entirely consistent with global warming, claim scientists.

Milder winter temperatures will decrease heavy snowstorms but could cause an increase in freezing rain if average daily temperatures fluctuate about the freezing point.

Je résume…

La science est formelle et ses conclusions sont sans appel: le réchauffement climatique signifie plus de neige, moins de neige, des chutes records de neige et pas de chutes de neige.
