Snow = No Global Warming =NOT

If I see one more idiot say that the record snowfall being experienced by the East coast is proof that global climate change isn't happening I think I will scream. So far FAUX News, various and sundry GOP goof balls and other people who should know better have uttered the same wacky conclusion.

People, people, people, go back to sixth grade climate science class and reread the chapter on precipitation and the water cycle. Read the section twice that talks about increasing atmospheric heat and its effects on evaporation and eventually precipitation(rain, snow, sleet for FAUX news people and republicans). Scientists have been predicting for years an increase in snowfall due to increased evaporation. This record snowfall, if anything, confirms the fact that our atmosphere is warming.
