For the Pacific Northwest, La Niña is expected to bring colder and wetter than average conditions with increased mountain snow. Those same conditions were predicted in climate change models too.
A complete lie. Real Climate (and most of the other experts) said the exact opposite.
Has Pacific Northwest snowpack declined? Yes.
The average snowpack in the Cascades has declined 50 percent since 1950 and will be cut in half again in 30 years if we don’t start addressing the problems of climate change now.
snowpack will very likely continue to decline in the future. In his summary statement, Hartmann notes that “temperatures in the Cascades will increase in the future as a result of global warming … and it is expected that this, by itself, should result in further decreases of snow
The only expert who disagreed was George Taylor, the Oregon State Climatologist – who was fired for telling the truth.
