Harvard educated US president says lack of Vancouver snow proves catastrophic man made global warming (contradicts evidence)

AFP, HENDERSON, Nevada — "US President Barack Obama on Friday rebuked climate change skeptics who argue that piles of snow dumped on the United States during a frigid winter cast doubt on global warming science."...

"I want to just be clear that the science of climate change doesn't mean that every place is getting warmer;

  • But what it
  • may
  • mean is, for example,

Vancouver, which is supposed to be getting snow during the Olympics,

  • suddenly is at 55 degrees,

and Dallas suddenly is getting seven inches of snow.

The idea is, is that as the planet as a whole gets warmer, you start seeing changing weather patterns, and that creates more violent storm systems, more unpredictable weather. So any single place might end up being warmer; another place might end up being a little bit cooler;

  • there might end up being more precipitation in the air, more monsoons, more hurricanes, more tornadoes, more drought in some places, floods in other places.

So I just -- that's one aspect of

that I think everybody should understand. That's point number one."...

  • Not so. Records show Vancouver's average low temperature in February is 35 degrees. Snow cannot exist above 32 degrees for more than a few moments.

they would not have expected it to be colder and snowier than it was.
