2020 Northern Hemisphere Total Snow Mass Increases to 300 Gigatons Above Avg

Data from the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) reveals that the “Total Snow Mass for the Northern Hemisphere” has been consistently above the 30 year average over the past few years, and now, 2020 is actually INCREASING that rate of growth.

Feel free to shovel this chart down the throats of those still insisting the world is burning up and that snowfall is a thing of the past, as clear for all to see —and impossible for alarmists to ignore— Total Snow Mass for the Northern Hemisphere is running approx. 300 gigatons above the 1982-2012 average:

According to the latest observation (plotted Oct 24, 2020), the hemisphere is ALREADY running well-ahead of schedule–and that’s BEFORE the inclusion of the recent record volumes of snow witnessed in North America and Russia. To put it into context, such hefty snow accumulations across the Northern Hemisphere would not have usually amassed until the second week of November.

Data from the Rutgers Global Snow Lab (shown below) supports this.

The lab’s latest data point is for day 299 (or Oct 25), and when comparing this date with the snow cover of all previous years it quickly becomes obvious how anomalous the start of the 2020 snow season has been.

In addition, Greenland continues to build snow and ice at levels comfortably above the 1981-2010 mean–data from the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI):

Don’t fall for bogus political agendas.

Trends change, a fact the IPCC is deliberately hiding from you: climate is cyclic, after all — never linear, and the COLD TIMES are now returning, the mid-latitudes are clearly REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow.

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
