Meteorologist Joe D'Aleo: 'We will have had 14 major impact storms this decade (only half over) beating out the 10 in the 1960s and 2000s.'
Meanwhile, As the snow piles up, climate change activists are already blaming the blizzard on 'global warming':

The monster blizzard of 2015 will be adding to what is already the snowiest decade on the East Coast.
“Assuming this storm gets ranked by NOAA as one of the high impact (population affected by snowstorm) snowstorms (likely since the November storm was), we will have had 14 major impact storms this decade (only half over) beating out the 10 in the 1960s and 2000s,” Joseph D’Aleo, CCM (Certified Consulting Meteorologist), told Climate Depot on Monday.
“Watch for widespread sub-zero cold next week if the European models are right (all the way to North Carolina and including DC area),” D’Aleo, the co-chief Meteorologist with Weatherbell Analytics, added.
The increase in snowfalls is counter to what the UN IPCC predicted. See: In 2001, the IPCC predicted milder winters and less snow. Experts are hoping no one remembers – UN IPCC 2001: ‘Milder winter temperatures will decrease heavy snowstorms’
In addition, The New York Times has featured scientists and climate activists claiming snow would decrease. See: Flashback 2014 New York Times: ‘The End of Snow?’
& NYT in 2000 quoted ‘Oppenheimer on the pathetic spectacle of the unused sled in his stairwell, symbol of a warming world:
The blizzard bearing down on the U.S. this week is now being blamed on global warming. See: 2015 U.S. Blizzard blamed on ‘global warming’ – Warmist Bill McKibben: Blizzards are ‘Climate change at work’ – NY Gov.: ‘Part of the changing climate’
Climate Depot’s Marc Morano Responds: ‘Blizzard blamed on global warming?! Is there any weather event that is inconsistent with global warming? — This is now akin to the predictions of Nostradamus or the Mayan calendar. There is no way anyone can falsify the global warming theory now because any weather event that happens proves’ their case.’
Other media outlets are promoting the 2015 blizzard and climate change link as well. See: Washington Post’s Chris Mooney: Global warming could make blizzards worse: ‘Extreme snowfall may actually be enhanced by global warming. I know it sounds counterintuitive‘
