The NY Times Thinks It Is The ‘End Of Snow’ For the Olympics: Reality Check: ‘Snow is doing just fine in the Northern Hemisphere’


The NY Times Thinks It Is The “End Of Snow” For the Olympics

Some guy at NY Times Thinks It Is The “End Of Snow” For the Olympics.
“In the last 47 years, a million square miles of spring snow cover has disappeared from the Northern Hemisphere”
I suspect the “author” used 47 years because the Rutgers Snow Lab’s data for the Northern Hemisphere starts in 1967  (2014 – 47).
Now the Olympics usually runs in February, so lets look at snow cover data for February.

2013 in February certainly had less snow than 1967 (47 years ago).
But 2013 had a lot more than 1968. About 3.5 million sq km more in fact according the Rutgers snow lab.
And 2010-2013 were the probably snowiest 4 years ever. The late 1970s would be the snowiest 3 years (but that was the coldest winter in US history)
1989 to 2002 looked bad for snow. But that was a long time ago. Warmists do tend to live in the past.
Looking at that graph I would have to conclude that there is no end of snow. Snow is doing just fine in the Northern Hemisphere.
However, the lack of snow does somewhat coincide with the AMO in February being very low. But it has nothing to do with CO2.
