Has global warming caused the low chances for snow?


Answer by  penrose (235)

Global warming is a little bit of a misnomer. Most climate scientists now urge the term "climate change" because what really is happening is climates are changing. On average, the planet is warming, but some places are getting more or less rain, more or less wind etc.

The global warming issue has barely raised the temperature, it is so miniscule. the answer to your question is no.

Different parts of the world are changing differently - some areas are getting cooler while others are getting warmer. Some call it global warming, but it could be natural cycles of the earth that aren't yet understood.

Global warming affects temperature and weather towards the extreme. It makes regions that are hot hotter and regions that are cold colder. Regions that are surrounded by water will be affected by increased snowfall. With global warming, the water is heated. This creates a greater evaporation and a higher moisture content in the air. Thereby, creating more snow.

Honestly, I think we are overdoing it. We tend to latch onto an idea and make a big deal about it. It is important that we use save practices in our own life, and conserve, as well as national level, but please no hysteria.

No! I live in the south and by south I mean Huntsville, AL. So far just this winter, we have seen snow twice this year. My father lives even further south in Tylertown, MS which borders Bogalousa, LA and they saw snow flurries this month. That's almost unheard of! So, global warming has not caused low chances for snow!

No, because global temperature is actually dropping. More likely, it is the heat island effect caused by the waste heat from both heating and air conditioning (waste heat pulled from house and dumped into outside air). This effect also decreases local rainfall, acting as a heat bubble that decreases cloud formation and rainfall.

i have heard a few scientists claim that we are in a period of global cooling, but the vast majority of those that spend their entire lives studying this stuff agree that the global temperature is increasing. its as close to a consensus as you can get from scientists.  add a comment
