This satellite map based illustration from NOAA shows the awesome breadth of the winter’s snow pack. If we did not have a hot summer, which we are likely to have, and a snow pack such as this did not melt, the reflectivity of the planet would be such that a new glacier would start to form. If I am right, there will come a winter, sooner or later, that is so intense and lasts so long that the snow pack doesn’t melt over the summer. It will not be this winter, though. Probably. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1353073/Winter-storm-Map-shows-Northern-Hemisphere-covered-snow-ice.html
