The global warming crew would have had at least a little more credibility if they had predicted this before the events rather than after the fact. They've been big on predicting warmer weather for so long that they are in damage control mode now that those predictions have not proven valid. So the best they can come up with is that "OK, so its now going to be colder with more blizzards, but there will still be less snow." Next year it will be, "OK, so there's now more snow. But there will be less blizzards." Basically you have alarmists predicting that we are going to have weather if we don't do something about it.

The United States has been “WALLOPED” by twice as many of the most extreme snowstorms in the past 50 years than in the previous 60 years, according to an upcoming study on extreme weather by leading federal and university climate scientists. This also fits with a dramatic upward trend in extreme winter precipitation -- both rain and snow -- in the Northeastern U.S. charted by the National Climatic Data Center.

-- And an upcoming study in the Journal of Climate says computer models "predict"
annual global snowfall to shrink by more than a foot in the next 50 years. The study's author said most people live in parts of the United States that are
"likely to"
see annual snowfall drop between 30 percent and 70 percent by the end of the century.
"It fits the pattern that we expect to unfold," Oppenheimer said.

Her study used new computer models to
the climate in 60 years to 100 years as carbon dioxide levels soar. She found large reductions in snowfall throughout much of the world, especially parts of Canada and the Andes Mountains. In the United States, her models
about a 50 percent or more drop in annual snowfall amounts along a giant swath of the nation from Maine to Texas and the Pacific Northwest and California's Sierra Nevada mountains.

Gee more walloped,likely to,simulate, and predict.
