Junk Scientists: Moscow Snowpocalypse Is Due to Global Warming

Snowpocalypse Moscow–
Russia is experiencing the heaviest snowfall in a century this winter. And, now they are expecting another 26 centimeters this week.

Of course, junk scientists blame the record 100 year snows on global warming.
The Moscow Times reported:

The heaviest snowfall in a century brought Moscow and the surrounding region to a near standstill and left hundreds of people without power, officials said Tuesday.

And with snowfall set to continue at least until the end of the week, the authorities are bracing for more chaos on the roads.

“There hasn’t been such a winter in 100 years,” Pyotr Biryukov, deputy mayor for residential issues, said Tuesday in comments carried by Interfax. “The snow this year has already reached one and a half times the climatic norm,” he said.

The capital has seen 216 centimeters of snow fall since the beginning of winter, Biryukov said.

Average snowfall in Moscow is 152 centimeters a year. Biryukov said the city saw 26 centimeters in the 24 hours preceding his Tuesday afternoon news conference and has seen 36 centimeters since the beginning of February…

…Scientists say such extreme weather is only likely to increase.

The weather we’ve seen in the past couple of days completely fits with the tendency that was identified a couple of years ago, that we are going to to see much stronger, intensive bursts of precipitation in the future,” said Alexei Kokorin, director of the climate and energy program at WWF Russia. “In the summer, we will probably see stronger bursts of rain.”

And, if there was no snow in Moscow this year, then that would be blamed on global warming, too.

    This spring they will have floods too – too much snow, too much water, too much crack!

  • Ghost

    let this be the supreme example out of many such examples to teach you for all time:

    facts, reason, logic, consistency, principle, objectivity present pain, future loss mean nothing, NOTHING! to people for whom feelings and agenda are all there is.
    “I don’t care, it doesn’t matter… it doesn’t matter… it doesn’t matter…”

    this is who we’re dealing with, folks. give up on persuasion, all that matters for us is that we must defeat them. personally, I prefer abandoning them to sink in their own filth.

  • steve clark

    Hmmm, you offer ZERO evidence that the record snowfall is due to or not due to global warming. Nothing to see here, folks, move on.

    I am not on the side of the weather nazis, but I also am not on the side of empty stories lacking any sort of substantial argument or data to support its underlying assumptions. That is nothing more than propaganda. You can do better than that.

    Fact #1: The Earth is warming.

  • Texas_Treeroach

    Fact #2: There’s not a blessed thing anyone on the face of this planet can do to change the condition of the weather or the climate.

    Would someone please tell me how much snow they got? I have no idea how much 216 centimeters is. Is it feet, yards, what? All I know is, I guess, a centimeter is one hundreth of a meter? And I do remember that a “meter” is 39 inches instead of 36 for a yard that we use. I used to hate that my son would bring home all this stuff filling his head about measurement of things in millimeter’s, I do know what that is since I use it for scientific measurement. But when he would start saying things when he was helping me build something, “That looks like about 30 centimeters.” I’d say, “What?”, “How much?” “Would you speak English.” And I’d get him to translate what he was being taught in school. I told him don’t ever forget that America uses the Standard Measuring System, not metric. I don’t know anything in metric except metric wrenches and I cannot spot a wrench by sight for size like I can a wrench in Standard size. Like I know how big a half inch wrench looks like. I can show you that size with my fingers held up in the air in front of me. But a 15 millimeter? Forget it.

    Your ‘fact’ is inaccurate, hence, not a fact.

    Fact#1 depends on the actual fact#2 which is “The Earth is warming due to greenhouse gas accumulaton in the atmosphere.”

    The contention that humans cannot affect climate is inaccurate.

  • WillofLa

    Global warming my butt. It’s called WINTER IN FRICKING RUSSIA, OKAY!! Who cares about how much snow they got. Yeah, it messes up traffic and transportation of merchandise, but other than that, the article didn’t say anything about it being painfully cold. I can remember many years ago when Russia had a really bad Winter when it was really, really cold, like 50 to 60 degress below zero. People all over the place were found frozen stiff sitting on park benches, in their cars, buried under the snow with their feet sticking out like they just passed out and fell into the snow bank and froze to death. Probably drunk.

    Fact #3. Jeffrey is an idiot.

  • Flintstone F.

    Jeffrey fact 1 is wrong. The planet stopped warming a decade ago.

    My post never showed up. But let me repeat: Man will never see the climate change. To do so, one would have to live for ten or twenty thousand years. Man will never see the magnetic north become the magnetic south. It will always just be where it is when you’re alive although it’s changed thousands of times on an average of about once every 250,000 years. That’s an average and it’s not sudden and we are due for a change, but all we know is that the earth’s polarity is about 10% weaker than “normal.” The implications are nothing more than more cosmic radiation coming into our lives. Better get the spf 85 total sunblock if you are fair skinned.

    The Rocky Mountains are falling down. Who will be here to see it out and the subsequent rise of the 4th set of Rocky Mountains? Nobody.

    A hundred years ago they got the worst snow ever. A hundred years later it happens again. Well what happens next year when they don’t get the record snow? Global warming? Cooling? Nope, it’s just weather.

    CO2 is not a pollutant and does not drive temperature. For at least 40 million years the temperature relative to now was high while CO2 was low. For at least 40 million years the temperature was cool relative to today and the CO2 was high. For at least 40 million years the temperature was high relative to today and the CO2 was high. For at least 40 million years the temperature was cool relative to today and the CO2 was low.

    We live in a CO2 deficient period. 35 ppm vs 7,000 ppm and both climates were easily survivable to humans had they been around 400 million years ago. Land/water distribution was different but the climate was just fine.

    You don’t have any idea of what you’re talking about.

    An increase in snowfall. Who could have predicted that.

    Early Warning Signs of Global Warming: Downpours, Heavy Snowfalls, and Flooding
    An increase in global temperatures will lead to an intensification of the hydrological cycle. This is because an increase in surface air temperature causes an increase in evaporation and generally higher levels of water vapor in the atmosphere. In addition, a warmer atmosphere is capable of holding more water vapor. The excess water vapor will in turn lead to more frequent heavy precipitation when atmospheric instability is sufficient to trigger precipitation events. Intense precipitation can result in flooding, soil erosion, landslides, and damage to structures and crops.

    I couldn’t understand you, you must have something in your mouth.


    I actually know quite a lot about what I’m talking about. Your contention that the Earth stopped warming is not true. In fact, last year was the warmest on record. The rest of your comment is irrelevant nonsense.

    Fact 1 is still true. The Earth is warming. Do you disagree? It’s been my experience that climate change deniers love to tap dance around the most basic of facts and start talking about 100,000,000 years ago.

    Unless you have discovered a new science of physics, CO2 remains a greenhouse gas.

  • Jeffery


    We are already changing the climate and on our current trajectory the mean global temperature could be 7F higher by 2100. Do you really believe mankind will not be around then? For me, I worry about my grandkids, great grandkids, great great grandkids. Don’t they deserve better?

    There 2.54 cm in an inch, or 25.4 mm. So your 216 cm of snow is 85 inches, or 7 feet.

    As for you wrenches, 1/2 inch is just a little over 12 mm, and 19 mm is almost exactly 3/4 inch.

  • bigkahuna

    You people dont understand…. Global cooling brought us global warming….Global warming brought us climate change ( since they got tired of changing their minds and faking evidence)

    You see…

    Lack of rain =climate change ( we need to tax things)
    More rain= climate change (we need to tax things)
    tornados= climate change (we need to tax things)
    hurricanes= climate change (we need to tax things)
    Snow storms= climate change (we need to tax things)
    Warm days= climate change (we need to tax things)
    Cold days= climate change (we need to tax things)

    You dummies dont realize we never had such rain, snow, heat, cold, wind, hurricane, tornados before…They were always just nice things and nobody was ever hurt or property damaged before glaobal cooling, warming, CLIMATE CHANGE.

    We need to tax things, do 50 more studies, fund hundreds of scientists to prove/fake evidence of climate change so we can keep telling you what you can drive, smoke, eat, drink, fly, and otherwise do.

    Dont worry they will tell you when you need to know something and when to bend over and pay up.

    Oh and I forgot to mention… Its for the children, kittens, puppies and old people that if you disagree you are a mean, racist, bigot and hater of children, kittens, puppies and old people.

    (Review Fact#1): The Earth is warming (and Fact#2) due to increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

    These are simple and well understood.
