The White House claims that Great Lakes ice is disappearing, and that US seasonal snow cover is decreasing.
Rising temperatures across the U.S. have reduced lake ice, sea ice, glaciers, and seasonal snow cover over the last few decades. In the Great Lakes, for example, total winter ice coverage has decreased by 63% since the early 1970s.
In fact, there has been no change in Great Lakes ice cover, with five out of the last nine years normal or above normal cover.
Ships were getting stuck in the ice in March.
There was record ice cover this winter within view of Barack Obama’s window.
But the White House climate fraud is much worse than it seems. North American snow coverage is not decreasing. It has been steadily increasing and at record levels in recent years.
There was snow on the ground in 48 states on February 23.
At the same time the White House is claiming that snow and ice is disappearing due to global warming, they are also saying that snow and ice is increasing due to global warming.
Holdren says, “If you’ve been hearing that extreme cold spells like the one that we’ve been having in the United States now disprove global warming, don’t believe it.”
In fact, the U.S. should expect more instances of Arctic-like weather in the future as the polar vortex — known typically to circulate around the Arctic — weakens its centralized hold due to global warming, Holdren says.
The Obama White House is attempting to perpetrate the biggest scam in history, and Republicans are too timid to call him out on it. Thomas Jefferson must be rolling in his grave.
