Warmist: “Maybe someday I will relate to my grandchildren what snow was like”

Here we go, another “snow is just a thing of the past”, as written by Warmist Sonya Diehn

Opinion: White winters another victim of climate change

I remember well my first winter in Germany: it was cold, so cold. Living in Leipzig at the time, I was astounded to see people skiing along the forest path on the stretch of park I typically biked through to get downtown.

My second German winter was also harsh. By then in Bonn, I established my own personal limit of 0 degrees Celsius for bike-riding.

Since I am originally from the desert of southern Arizona, German winters took some getting used to.

I was enchanted with how snow transformed the drab surroundings into a “winter wonderland.” One of my friends in Bonn had become a sledding enthusiast – she had so much fun, that I bought myself a used sled that spring at a flea market.

But the snow hasn’t come again.

It’s now three years in a row that snow hasn’t stuck on the ground here in Bonn for more than a few hours.

Not really. Seems her memory is a bit off. Perhaps she should read her own paper. There are other sources for snowfall over the past three winters. Europe overall has seen much harsher winters over the past 7 years. But, hey, maybe there hasn’t been as much snow, but Germans have been forced to rely on wood pellets and heater stoves over the past few very cold winters to heat their homes, living like it’s 1499, because of Warmist governmental “green” rules.

In many places around the world, this winter is on track to be the warmest on record. Globally, the winter before had been the warmest on record until this year.

And next year could continue to break records – because the planet is warming. Since pre-industrial times, average global temperature has increased by about a degree Celsius.

Two important points. A miniscule rise of around 1.5F is small, compared to previous Holocene warm periods. Second, nothing she writes proves anthropogenic causation. And that is where the rubber meets the road. If you cannot prove the hypothesis, it means nothing, other than that some people are overly hysterical.

Last week, while covering the climate summit in Paris, at one point I was struck with the absurdity: How can people negotiate the temperature of the planet?

Yeah, that’s my thought too, but, in a different way.

Negotiating the climate is not only absurd, it’s astoundingly arrogant. Innumerable species and human lives hang in the balance. If the global community were to truly take responsibility, we’d stop burning fossil fuels this very moment.

Maybe someday I will relate to my grandchildren what snow was like.
