At first thought, it would seem ridiculous to think that global warming will actually give us colder weather. We’ve all heard it by now, Earth has been slowly warming up for the past couple of centuries, but in the past forty years the rate has been increasing. The polar ice caps are melting as a result, causing the sea levels to rise.
So, how would this lead to colder weather? Well, it seems perfectly logical when you think about it. With more water, there’s more chance for evaporation, which then leads to more moisture in the air and more clouds, and therefore more water to come back down to the ground, and in such areas as Siberia, this leads to more snow. In conjunction with this, there is snowball Earth, which revolves around the idea that snow reflects a large amount of the light that hits it, and with it a large amount of the incoming heat, thus decreasing the heat retained by the atmosphere and leading to colder weather.
