I'm really starting to recheck the peer reviewed data. We may be off in our calculations.
==========
Last week, snow covered more than half of the continental United States, the highest this measure has reached by this date in a decade, according to government scientists.
As of Dec. 15, snow covered 53 percent of the Lower 48, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reported. That’s a significantly higher portion than in recent years. In 2006, for example, snow covered just 12 percent of those states on the same date, according to Climate Central, a climate news Web site.
November and early December have also been quite chilly for much of the country, below the 20th-century average, Climate Central noted.“With the noteworthy exception of Alaska, nearly every state was affected by the unusually cold air at some point during the November-to-December timeframe,” Climate Central reported.
Your ignorance of climate science shows you are no climate scientist.

You should be respectful to the famed & venerated Climate Change Scientist.......... NOT!
Did you note the famed & venerated Climate Change Scientist was from Irvine, CA! There's a lot of toxic topix AGW deniers in Irvine......or one who can change its name continually.

My credentials are impeccable. I publish in many journals. I am constantly requested to speak at conferences. My teaching assistants are the best. Research grants from major organizations fund my life's work. I coined the term "climate change".

We are honored to have you, Climate Change Scientist! Surely you can straighten some people out here.

We just need your name, so we can tell that you're not some idiot masquerading as a credentialed, published, educating bonafide climate scientist.

Small mistakes and typos don't make the overall science wrong.

The Earth is still warming, we are causing it, and there are things we can do about it.

On the subject of mistakes, along with right wing lies...

Fox Business Reporter: Germany's Solar Industry Better Than U.S.'s Because "They've Got A Lot More Sun Than We Do."

WSJ Editorial Board Member: New York City's Bike Share Program Part Of "Totalitarian" Plot.

Fox News: Wind Turbines May Cause "Devastating" Health Effects.

Fox News: Solar Power "Might Be Tanking Our Economy."

When Fox Couldn't Point To Actual Facts To Smear Tesla, They Made Some Up.
