The New York Times told us that ‘snow is a thing of the past.’
However, data from Rutgers University’s Global Snow Lab shows that The New York Times’s statement is completely backwards.
Winter and Autumn snow cover in the Northern Hemisphere have been increasing since 1967.
Further in the article, the NY Times pushes their global warming nonsense by showing us a graph of Spring Northern Hemisphere snow cover, which is in decline.
However, when it is all averaged together, there is actually an increasing snow extent across the Northern Hemisphere.
The New York Times also stated that Glacier National Park will melt completely by 2050.
However, that claim is the same claim that scientists made 95 years ago, in 1923. They predicted that Glacier National Park would melt by 1948, but obviously, that didn’t happen.
This is what Glacier National Park looked like in 2016. The glacier and the snowpack looked normal. I don’t think it is going to melt by 2050.
