Climate changers shocked and puzzled by snow in January

So, how are the settled science climate changers, global warmers, global coolers going to explain last weekend's "snowmageddon" "snowcalypse" (not my words), where several more inches than normal of the white stuff temporarily buried a large section of the eastern United States?  But...but...snow in January, snow in winter wasn't supposed to happen anymore, according to the Great Minds of Science who have built a nice money-making racket on denying reality.  

For instance, take Nobel Peace Prize winner (read, and try not to laugh, his climate change acceptance speech here and old male white Oscar winner (listen to his acceptance speech here and Grammy winner and former vice president and president wannabe Al Gore (D)'s past definitive climate warning gurgles.  Please!

Speaking to an audience in Germany five years ago, Gore — sometimes ridiculed as "The Goracle" — alleged that "the entire North Polarized [sic] cap will disappear in five years." "Five years," Gore said again, in case anybody missed it the first time, is "the period of time during which it is now expected to disappear."

The following year, Gore made similar claims at a UN "climate" summit in Copenhagen. "Some of the models … suggest that there is a 75 percent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during some of the summer months, could be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years," Gore claimed in 2009. "We will find out."

Yes, we have found out. Contrary to the predictions by Gore and fellow alarmists, satellite data showed that Arctic ice volume as of summer of 2013 had actually expanded more than 50 percent over 2012 levels. In fact, during October 2013, sea-ice levels grew at the fastest pace since records began in 1979. Many experts now predict the ongoing expansion of Arctic ice to continue in the years to come, leaving global-warming alarmists scrambling for explanations to save face — and to revive the rapidly melting climate hysteria.

A few days before the latest Big Snow That Wasn't Supposed to Happen, Gore tweeted, "Don't let climate denial go unchallenged" and invited one and all to become – and no, I'm not making this up – a Climate Reality Leader in the Philippines.  Perhaps he thinks these Climate Change Reality Leaders will walk or swim there so as not to sully the atmosphere by traveling on carbon-emitting planes or even boats.  

Washington, D.C. politicos, especially President Barack Hussein Obama (D), took Gore's pronunciamentos as Settled Science, and so, in typical government fashion, they were totally unprepared when a mere inch of snow and ice shut down D.C. ten days earlier. 

In "shut down" I include the U.S. government, which shuts down regularly at the mere mention of snowflakes. 

The ill-timing of the snowfall, salt trucks stuck in traffic, and a lack of pretreating all contributed to the mess.

The National Weather Service and Storm Team 4 forecast a dusting to 1 inch of snowfall to begin about 6 p.m., which is just about exactly what fell. Roads lightly covered in snow quickly turned to ice-covered roads under the heavy crush of a D.C. rush hour and hourslong commutes were the result.

And we're supposed to trust them on the Iran deal?  The economy?  Anything?

The sacred (to some!) New York Times gave credence to snowlessness in our future almost two years to the day before this latest major blizzard.  On February 7, 2014, they actually turned over their precious pages/website to a Porter Fox, who pontificated on "The End of Snow?" with dire predictions and how it would affect the all-important ski industry.  Just two years later, he has been proven wrong!  Imagine that!  

And then there is eminent non-scientist, environmental lawyer, husband, and lover to many a wealthy heir, Robert F. Kennedy, Junior, who seven and a half years ago fulminated over the following:

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. But neighbors came to our home at Hickory Hill nearly every winter weekend to ride saucers and Flexible Flyers.

In those days, I recall my uncle, President Kennedy, standing erect as he rode a toboggan in his top coat, never faltering until he slid into the boxwood at the bottom of the hill. Once, my father, Atty. Gen. Robert Kennedy, brought a delegation of visiting Eskimos home from the Justice Department for lunch at our house. They spent the afternoon building a great igloo in the deep snow in our backyard. My brothers and sisters played in the structure for several weeks before it began to melt. On weekend afternoons, we commonly joined hundreds of Georgetown residents for ice skating on Washington's C&O Canal, which these days rarely freezes enough to safely skate.

Meanwhile, Exxon Mobil and its carbon cronies continue to pour money into think tanks whose purpose is to deceive the American public into believing that global warming is a fantasy. 

Undaunted by his smashed snow globe's failure, Kennedy flies around the world, spewing gas and phoniness wherever he lands.

Of course, the climatistas, never willing to give up their profitable gig as doomsayers, will explain this as mere weather, or as the result of global warming, global cooling, or humanity or something.  

But millions of students have a snow day.  No school.  Enjoy!  You'll have to make it up in global warming spring or global cooling summer.
