End of Snow? No

NYT runs hyperbolic column.

The New York Times is warning that global warming and snow melt portend dire consequences for the sky industry. “The planet has warmed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit since the 1800s, and as a result, snow is melting,” explains Porter Fox in his column titled “The End of Snow?” “In the last 47 years, a million square miles of spring snow cover has disappeared from the Northern Hemisphere.” Meteorologist Joe D'Aleo sets the record straight: “Snow has been increasing in the fall and winter the last 48 years. 4 of the top 5 snowiest winters for the northern hemisphere have occurred in the last 6 years. Last November to April had a record snowcover for the hemisphere. … The snowcover for the first week of February is 6th greatest for North America and 9th greatest for the Northern Hemisphere (out of the 48 years the NYT article claims).” But why let facts get in the way of a good PR narrative?
