Study: Sierra snowfall consistent over 130 years
San Francisco Chronicle

Snowfall in the Sierra Nevada has remained consistent for 130 years, with no evidence that anything has changed as a result of climate change, according to a study released Tuesday.

The analysis of snowfall data in the Sierra going back to 1878 found no more or less snow overall – a result that, on the surface, appears to contradict aspects of recent climate change models.

John Christy, the Alabama state climatologist who authored the study, said the amount of snow in the mountains has not decreased in the past 50 years, a period when greenhouse gases were supposed to have increased the effects of global warming.

« The dramatic claims about snow disappearing in the Sierra just are not verified, » said Christy, a climate change skeptic and director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. « It looks like you’re going to have snow for the foreseeable future. »
