The Science Recorder reports today that the amounts of snow will likely decline because of increased carbon-dioxide in the atmosphere. They fail to mention–so conveniently–that the amount of rain will likely increase. Once again, the ideological true-believers filter facts in order to scare-monger policies that fuel their ideo/theological agenda.
So long as the amount of precipitation in a given area of the globe is the same, except for in the Arctic or Antarctic (which are actually deserts, where it doesn’t ever rain), it does not matter whether the precipitation falls in the form of frozen or liquid water. The report never claims that precipitation will decline; only that snowfall will be less.
Frankly, humans prefer falling rain to falling snow, so why the apocalyptic anxiety? Perhaps the anxiety is because the priests and priestesses of ideo/theological environmentalism are compelled to preach fear in order to assert dominance and control over their frightened congregations. If this is accurate, then the apocalyptic priest—whether on the socialist Left or religious Right—is a closet sadist.[Email message welcome: duoism(at)sbcglobal.net]
