According to climate research papers published in the journal Scientific Reports on Tuesday, Alaskan mountain range snowfalls have almost doubled since the beginning of the industrial age, and that’s obviously regarded as hard proof that “climate change” (whatever that means) may trigger significant increases in regional precipitation.
The researchers from Dartmouth College, the University of Maine and the University of New Hampshire now claim that modern snowfall levels in Alaska are at historic highs, highest in at least 1200 years respectively (the Earth is 4 billion years old), averaging approximately eighteen feet annually, compared to eight feet per year from 1600-1840. The research was based on ice core sample analysis collected from Mount Hunter in Alaska’s Denali National Park at 13,000 feet. The study seems to claim that man made climate change warmed tropical oceans, which resulted in increased snowfall driven by the strengthening of the northward flow of warm, moist air.
Here’s one of the researchers:
“Everywhere we look in the North Pacific, we’re seeing this same fingerprint from warming tropical oceans. Wintertime climate in the North Pacific is very different than it was 200 years ago.”
