A promo for Fox News’ Saturday show The Cost of Freedom that ran during The Kelly File Thursday night actually included this line in its voiceover: “Why global warming isn’t stopping the snow falling.”
While those who deny the existence of man-made climate change have often cited winter weather as their irrefutable proof, there is no scientific evidence that a warming climate equals less snow in the winter. In fact, warmer ocean temperatures means more evaporation, which in turn can produce heavier snowfalls.
So, now that you know the answer to this bizarre question posed by Fox, you can just sit back and enjoy the blizzard this weekend.
