Global Warming Hysteria: IT’S GOING TO SNOW IN SAN FRANCISCO!

Some, like Al Gore, have been saying that the recent arctic freezes around the country and in Europe are signs of global warming. And now, now a snow storm is coming to SF!  It must be global warming–or at least, global weirding, in Thomas Friedman’s stupid phrase.

Uh, that would be a big negative. It doesn’t happen often, but it snows more often here than in you know where.  From the story:

Previous snowfall at sea level in San Francisco:

Dec. 25, 1856 2.5 inches

June 12, 1868 2 inches

Dec. 31, 1882 3.5 inches

Feb. 7, 1884 1.5 inches

Feb. 5, 1887 3.7 inches (most snow ever recorded in the city)

Jan. 16, 1888 0.1 of an inch

March 3, 1896 1 inch (latest ever)

Dec. 11, 1932 0.8 of an inch

Jan. 15, 1952 0.3 of an inch

Jan. 21, 1962 2 inches

Feb. 5, 1976 1 inch

Gee, all that was before the great global warming scare.  In fact, in 1976, scientists were worrying about global cooling.

Nope. It’s just weather.
