Tired of hearing people saying that #Blizzardof2015 refutes #climate change? In fact, it's just the opposite: climate change is making huge snowstorms more likely. We've compiled some links and resources to help you educate the climate deniers in your life:
- Statistician Nate Silver crunches the numbers and finds that big blizzards have become more common in New York in recent years -- probably driven by global warming.
- Blogger Jom Romm reviews the latest climate science and concludes that the giant snowstorms of recent years have been fueled by climate change.
- The 2014 National Climate Assessment found that the quantity of precipitation dumped by huge New England storms (like the one outside your window) have increased by more than 70% since 1958, driven by warmer temperatures.
- National Geographic has a great explanation of the counterintuitive physics that connects global warming and huge snowstorms.
