A winter storm dumped more than 30 centimetres of snow on the Toronto area yesterday, with some parts of southern Ontario receiving as many as 50 centimetres of snow. Toronto usually receives approximately 30 cm of snow during the entire month of December. Yesterdays snowfall likely trumped the previous record of 28 cm set on Dec. 11, 1944.
I can confirm that this storm was real.
In a statement from Bali, Al Gore warned:
if Canada did not immediately change its ways, it would be hit with more winter storms.
Gore added that climate models showed that global warming would lead to more Canadian snowfall or less snowfall or about the same amount of snowfall or all three and that the need for change was urgent.
Stephen McIntyre of Climate Audit was unable to comment because he was shoveling his driveway. From poolside in Bali, the Canadian delegation said that McIntyre could shovel out their driveways when he was finished.
