Report Siberian heat wave alarms scientists in The Lodge Posted Friday at 06:17 AM 9 hours ago, TVR said: On a bright note, if all the climate people are correct, we will get to do more snowboarding.... I am going to guess some might ask "What is he talking about? The earth is getting warmer won't help snowboarding". And, as a matter of fact, if the models some predict about warming are to come true, it will indeed get more snowy. If it gets warmer, the ice melts. The melted ice adds less saline water to the ocean, which jams up the oceans conveyor belts. Without these oceanic flows, it gets colder.... much colder... if fact, it happened a mere 12,000 years ago. When it gets colder we keep more snow and more tracks are made.... So there is a bright note here... I will let the scientists explain the conveyor belt, as they are better at this than I am...https://loe.org/shows/segments.html?programID=15-P13-00013&segmentID=3 If you don't like my source, google "earth ocean conveyor belt" and there will be a source you like I am sure... Reading the whole reference I don't get quite the same impression as TVR. But it was an interesting read. Thanks for linking it.
