Global Warming Everywhere!

I love it when snow in June in Hawaii, yes Hawaii!, is blamed on global "warming"...

Seems to me that if things are "getting warmer" than means less snow, not more, and that should certainly mean no more snow in subtropical regions like Hawaii.

Here is a bit from a March 2000 article in the UK's Independent newspaper:
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.
Funny how the global warming crowd can tell us that "warming" means no more snow, but then it also means rare snowfalls in June in Hawaii, and it means tornadoes in the US, and cold wet weather in the Pacific Northwest, and drought, and heavy rains, and hot streaks, and cold streaks, and pretty well any unusual weather imaginable. Sounds to me that "global warming" is just anothername for "weather".

Sensible people know that the weather is variable and records will be set from time to time as you hit a statistically unlikely event.
