Is There Anything AGW Can Not Do?

After Climategate, Glaciergate, Amazongate and every Gate problem found in the IPCC report dealing with the consequences of “Global Warming”, you would think scientists would take a step back, and reign in trying to tie everything to AGW. If you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn for sale.

Seems these scientists still think everything will just blow over and go back to business as usual. So they continue to conduct studies that says X might  in some unknown way be  caused by Global Warming.

Here is the latest example, we have scientists from UC Berkeley claiming that the famous fog of San Francisco is thinning out because of Global Warming:

However less then a year ago scientists were telling us the fog in San Fran was getting THICKER due to Global Warming:

Then there is the whole snow thing in the UK and the US.

 From 2000 we get this from Scientists at the CRU:

According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.

“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.

Then in Dec 2009 the snow started falling and except for a short two week break it kept falling in the eastern US and the UK. So of course we get that the heavy snowfall is caused by Global Warming:

What’s interesting about this story is the claim that the reason that there will be more snow is because there will be more moisture in the air due to the Great Lakes not being frozen over. Well a couple things fell through for the alarmists there.

For starters Lake Erie as an example froze over this year, something it hasn’t done in the last 14 years:

Now the reason to focus on Lake Erie is that it is the Great Lake with the most influence for putting moisture in the air for the Mid Atlantic region of the US. So no moisture from there.

Now the next problem is that this is an El Nino year and storms typically take a southerly track and get their moisture from the Gulf of Mexico which we saw all winter long.

The final point is that besides having more moisture in the air you need one other ingredient for snow: COLD.

See the normal average temperatures for February in the Washington DC area is 38 deg F ( http://www.accuweather.com/us/dc/washington/20500/forecast-normals.asp?partner=accuweather&traveler=0&zipChg=1&metric=0 ) but during these past big storms they were averaging 34 deg F. Hmm that looks cooler and not warmer to me and also goes back to the first point of Lake Erie freezing.

Then there is the Antarctic Ice which seems to be increasing and decreasing at the same time and both caused by AGW:

April 6th 2009

UP TO one-third of all Antarctic sea ice is likely to melt by the end of the century, seriously contributing to dangerous sea level rises, updated scientific modelling on global warming shows.

From Apr 23rd 2009

It seems that global warming may actually be leading to an increase in sea ice in parts of the Antarctic. Scientists in the United Kingdom have produced a study which shows ice has grown by 100,000 square kilometers each decade in the past 30 years. And perversely the increase is being put down to the hole in the ozone layer.

However that is nothing compared to the ever collapsing and reforming ice shelf all due to CO2:

I swear the next Ice Age could start with the Glaciers on the march south and some alarmist would spin it that AGW caused it.
