We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
but then we're REALLY screwed, because the more warming that gets negated, the cooler it'll get, which will make it really hot, which will then freeze the boiling sea (or boil the freezing sea--either way, bad, bad, BAD).
But seriously, here again is the addy (& a good one to send your kiddos) for the excellent climate site put up by the excellent Arts&LettersDaily.com folks:
back in the 70s when Newsweek started touting the next ice age, one cause was rising temperatures.
The warmer temps would mean the Arctic Ocean would not freeze.
Without an ice cover, there would be more evaporation.
With added water vapor in the air, there would be precipitation.
However, winter temps being what they are, it would be snowfall.
So much snowfall, in fact, that it would not all melt come summer and what remains would be the first, bottom-most layer of the next massive glacier to sweep out of the north.
It all made sense because of where the previous ice age's glaciers all formed: in a ring surrounding the Arctic Ocean. It also made perfectly good sense to all those living on the shores of any of the Great Lakes which churn out huge amounts of lake effect snow right up to the day they get covered with ice. Then they shut down. (Unfortunately this shut down only happens on a regular basis for Lake Erie, the shallowest of the lakes. The others just keep producing snow.)
So, as twisted and warped as the minds of the AGW crowd may be (and they make a mobious strip look flat), there may be some basis in saying warming produces snow.
That's sort of what is thought to've happened in the Late Precambrian -- in fact to've been the signal end of it, the next Eon being the first with complex life, due to the oxygen released when vulcanism melted "Snowball Earth". But things were different in many ways, 700,000,000 years ago.
