The National Weather Service (NWS) has just issued a Winter Weather Advisory for most of the state of Massachusetts and Southern New England. Incidentally, on the same day, the White House issued their own warning about people dying from extreme heat resulting from global warming – or “climate change.”
Although the NWS isn’t anticipating a large amount of snowfall, they did caution that the snow “may be heavy at times which could reduce visibility to a mile or less.” The Winter Weather Advisory concluded:
Snow will accumulate on untreated areas where temperatures are at or below freezing. Forecasters say this will be more significant in the morning hours and less toward midday with warmer temperatures, then again an issue as cold air is expected to push through the area later Monday.
The White House’s report Monday deals with climate change and lists “examples of the increased health risks” associated with climate change, including “extreme heat”:
Extreme heat can be expected to cause an increase in the number of premature deaths, from thousands to tens of thousands, each summer, which will outpace projected decreases in deaths from extreme cold. One model projected an increase, from a 1990 baseline for more than 200 American cities, of more than an additional 11,000 deaths during the summer in 2030 and more than an additional 27,000 deaths during the summer in 2100.
In addition to the White House’s report, White House Science Advisor John Holdren said that climate change was going to bring such heat that construction workers and farmers would die:
“In some parts of the world, when you look more broadly at this question, you see the likelihood that in the hottest times of the year it will be simply physiologically impossible to work outdoors…
“That means agriculture, that means construction, people who try to work outdoors will basically be unable to control their body temperature and will die.”
Manmade global warming proponents will retort that the April Winter Weather Advisory is not evidence that the theory of manmade global warming is false. While that is true, we all know what they’d say if there were an “extreme heat” advisory in the middle of winter.
