Global Warming: Sioux Falls, South Dakota Breaks Snowfall Records

Global warming alarmists hate it when we bring up these stories. They hate that we still call it global warming when it’s supposed to be called climate change. And so what if it happens to be snowing in November in the north. Don’t these deniers get it that local weather is not the same thing as the global climate?

Of course, they don’t want to talk about how it was predicted that by now, snow was supposed to be a thing of the past. Kids were going to grow up these days not having any idea what snow was. Or polar bears.

They can pretend that it was never about global warming, but their whole premise is that carbon emissions cause temperatures to increase. That’s warming, by definition.

I get that they’d rather refer to it as climate change. That way, when things do the exact opposite of what was prophesied, they can claim, “We never said that everything was going to get hotter. We said that the climate was going to change. Everything was going to get more unpredictable. And see? We were right!”

Global warming non-believers aren’t supposed to bring up unseasonably cold weather or record snowfall. But global warming alarmists are allowed to point to unseasonably hot local weather as proof of global warming…or, climate change.

Speaking of record snowfall, check out what’s happened in Sioux Falls, South Dakota:

Sioux Falls saw record snowfall Friday, with a significant variety of snow totals within the city. Snow started at about 7 a.m. and by noon there was 4 1/2 inches at the airport in the north end of town, and more than 10 inches on the southern end. By 5 p.m., there was 7.1 inches at the airport and 14 inches south of 57th Street.

In addition to the surprising gradient is the unexpected levels. It was just Wednesday that the forecast for today in Sioux Falls was for less than an inch of snow possible. On Thursday, forecasters expected from 1 to 3, and just this morning the prediction was 4-6 inches.

The previous snowfall record for the day was 3.8 inches in 1975.

Up north, Flandreau only got 3/10 of an inch of snow, while Huron did not get a single flake, meteorologist Kyle Weisser said.

I know, I know. We’re not supposed to bring these local weather stories up. They don’t count. They’re not evidence that the theory of manmade global warming is just that: manmade. But if it were an unusually warm day in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Bill Nye would be shouting from the rooftops that it was incontrovertible proof of global warming, and that if you denied the correlation between local hot weather and global warming, then you might as well deny gravity.
