Liberal Website Blames Killer Snowstorms on Global Warming

By    |   Wednesday, 19 Nov 2014 05:37 PM

A liberal website is blaming global warming for the killer snowstorms gripping the Northeast United States.

"In the aftermath of a massive lake-effect snowfall event in western New York state on Tuesday, it's worth asking: Is climate change playing a role here?" Eric Holthaus wrote Wednesday at Slate.com.

"The short answer is: yes. Global warming is probably juicing lake-effect snows, and we've had the data to prove it for quite some time."

Slate ditched the catch-all phrase "climate change" in a 40-point headline: "Global Warming Is Probably Boosting Lake-Effect Snows."

Holthaus, a meteorologist, wrote that the massive lake-effect storm that killed six people and dumped about six feet of snow around Buffalo, N.Y., was caused by a gradual heating of the Great Lakes over decades.

In a tweet, he added:
His article sparked a Twitter backlash from global-warming skeptics, Twitchy reports.

Kennedy Maize, who says he has written about energy issues for 40 years, tweeted:
GermanShepherd10 added:
A growing number of scientists are rejecting the notion that global warming is caused by human activity, and some note the absence of higher temperatures for nearly two decades.

Peter Ferrara of the Heartland Institute, which has challenged global-warming claims, noted that the last period of increasing temperatures lasted from the 1970s to the 1990s.

But that was preceded by 30 years of declining temperatures.

"The primary, dominant cause of global climate change is natural causes, not human effects," he wrote earlier this year on Forbes.com.
