Recall last year and the year before and the year before that one, the cultish adherents of AGW started spinning that warming = cooling. Which made zero sense!
So imagine my absolute non surprise this chilly, below normal temperature, first week of spring gone and done morning, to read this news?
Global Warming/AGW DOES NOT CAUSE extreme winters
Cold snaps like the ones that hit the eastern United States in the past winters are not a consequence of (global warming AGW) climate change. Scientists at ETH Zurich and the California Institute of Technology have shown that global warming actually tends to reduce temperature variability
Repeated cold snaps led to temperatures far below freezing across the eastern (central) United States (and Canada & parts of Europe etc...) in the past two winters. Parts of the Niagara Falls froze, and ice floes formed on Lake Michigan. Pictures of icy, snow-covered cities made their way around the world, raising the question of whether (Global warming/AGW) climate change could be responsible for these extreme events.
Temperature range will decrease
Scientists at ETH Zurich and at the California Institute of Technology, led by Tapio Schneider, professor of climate dynamics at ETH Zurich, have come to a different conclusion. They used climate simulations and theoretical arguments to show that in most places, the range of temperature fluctuations will decrease as the climate warms. So not only will cold snaps become rarer simply because the climate is warming. Additionally, their frequency will be reduced because fluctuations about the warming mean temperature also become smaller, the scientists wrote in the latest issue of the Journal of Climate.Temperature fluctuations or extremes should lessen. And cold snaps will become more rare because of global temperature equalization according to AGW/Global warming theory. That is not what is happening, at all!

Using a highly simplified climate model, they examined various climate scenarios to verify their theory. It showed that the temperature variability in mid-latitudes decreases as the temperature difference between the poles and the equator diminishes.
Climate model simulations by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) showed similar results: as the climate warms, temperature differences in mid-latitudes decrease, and so does temperature variability, especially in winter.And yet, the past few years have been getting colder and colder with the last two winters being particularly brutal here in Canada and the US and further south still. Right now our temps are still well below normal!
Global warming doesn’t cause extreme winters, study says
Global warming doesn’t cause extreme winters, a study has found—instead it tends to reduce temperature variability.
That a warming trend doesn’t cause cold snaps might seem obvious, but it had been a question. Temperatures plunged far below freezing across the eastern United States in the past two winters. Parts of the Niagara Falls froze, and ice floes formed on Lake Michigan. Some theories pointed to global warming as a culprit.
Using a highly simplified climate model, they said, they examined various climate scenarios to verify their theory. Climate model simulations by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change showed similar results, they said: as the climate warms, temperature differences in mid-latitudes decrease. So does temperature variability, especially in winter.
In conclusion AGW or Global Warming should make the winters warmer! That is absolutely not happening- I can attest to this fact because millions of us have to live through these longer colder without respite winters. Crops are affected. Water mains bursting, water leaking, road damage, birds dying- shore erosion, sink holes etc- The reality doesn't fit the fiction.
Today an Air Canada jet made a hard landing, in the snow- At the end of March/2015
The Halifax region was under a snowfall warning, with an Environment Canada alert saying, "Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
The aircraft skidded for a long time before coming to a stop, said Hall, who is retired and lives in Mount Uniake, N.S.
“We were sliding along on our belly,” he said.
Hall said the aircraft hit so hard, the landing gear and at least one of the engines was ripped from the plane.
“I was looking out and I saw the landing gear go and I saw an engine go,” said Hall.
Hall said passengers left the plane immediately but they were left standing on the tarmac for more than an hour as they were lashed by wind-whipped snow.
It appears in poor visibility conditions, thanks to heavy snow which should not be happening if the planet was warming per AGW - the plane hit a power line, did a hard landing and slid for a good while, falling to pieces in the process
