This whole SCAM has made me completely sick! Politics is one thing. Arguing about gun control, health care, gay rights, taxes etc is one thing, but SCIENCE is not supposed to be a RELIGION. So we have 1 part in 20,000 of the atmosphere that changed from "something" to CO2. This is supposedly causing a greenhouse effect. Like when you have a couple blankets on at night, like tonight here it's 5F in Penna, so I'll add an extra blanket. But the CO2 blanket that is supposedly causing weird weather and will ruin our skiing is only 1 part in 20,000. That what you get when you add 50ppm to the supposedly stable 350ppm CO2 level when the climate was just fine about 60 years ago. Do YOU TOO want to be STUPID? Just Do The Math, at the 350.org site.
2 yrs ago when this thread started, many Western resorts, and probably the East, were off to a slow start. So the paper of record, the funny paper, the NY Times, writes the article linked to at the top of this thread.
As the brain washed citizen scientists are fond of saying, you are entitled to your own facts. The facts are for the past ten years, when man created 30% of the total CO2 it has ever created, Northern Hemisphere snowfall has increased in 9 of the 12 months of the past 10 years. And I don't think the 2013 data is in yet.
The last 6 years on average have been the SNOWIEST N. American winters since these satellite measurements began in 1967!
And the way it's going so far, we are on our way to 7.
So what do "we" do, we form groups to fight the "increasing snowfall"!!
Here in the Poconos, last year, ski resorts closed in late March, not for lack of snow but for lack of interest and we are off to our best start I can remember for many years.
Yet, I don't even read through 1/2 of my Outside magazine w/o reading at least 3 references to the coming DOOM!
Now i know that many of you could care less about science, what is important is political power. And certainly, this CO2 FRAUD (combined with alternative energy - Wind/Solar/Ethanol ALL NONSENSE) represents one of the greatest political tools of all time. You've done a terrific A1 job in getting people to willing turn over their money and their environment and their time too, all so they can get a "good feeling", just like saying the rosary or blessing oneself when entering a church gives you a good feeling.
But if you want to learn the TRUTH, instead of SHEER NONSENSE, take the time to open your eyes and see how you are being taken as a complete FOOL. The Huffington Post Climate Page is nothing but SHEER 100% NONSENSE! Sorry, I know it makes you feel like a better person to believe this crap, because you know they are the "good people". The bad people recommend stuff like fossil fuels, and that can't be right. Only a moron would think that when it's 5F outside, but sadly, the world is more full of MORONS than EVER! Oh sorry for the insults, because you watch TV and read the NY Times and Huff Post Climate Page, so it's not your fault. And again sorry for the insults, but I know you care and want to do the right thing, so you can keep being stupid!
