   Ignoble donald supporters display their lack of intelligence.   They must be working on a distraction agenda - here on a Senior web site.    What are they afraid of discussing?

 

a.   The ever increasing cost of long term nursing home care   ( Bloomberg)

b.   Proposal by their guy to take a hatchet to Social Security.   (every where).

 

Hilariously, we need for these folks to come up with a number of how many extreme weather events do they require to ascertain that something weird is happening in the environment.    Farmers in the midwest are not planting crops because of the extreme weather events this spring - bailouts rarely go to the farmer but corporate agriculture entities - do the ignobles care?

ChasKy53:   The ignorance and denial about how Global Warming brings radical climate change and strange weather patterns is absolutely astounding.

 

 

True. There are none so blind as those who will not see. Their minds are made up and nothing will change it because they aren't interested in facts, just bias confirmation. They will forever be looking for any crumb that they agree with no matter how ridiculous it makes them look.

Richva:   Wow. Another radical weather swing................wonder what is causing that? 

 

 

 

Dontcha know it's the coming Ice Age?  This year my Daffodils bloomed nearly a week later than normal and the squirrels had thicker coats. Al Gore and the leftist world climate scientists can't hide that for much longer.

Yes. As one comment stated, we're talking 'climate change', not 'global warming'. The planet is warming, and that is triggering extreme weather events. As the extreme weather events continue and become the norm, they define our 'climate'.

Colorado's snowpack is 40 times normal after rare summer solstice dump

On summer's opening day, up to 20 inches of snow buried the high terrain of the Colorado Rockies, boosting the state's snowpack to extraordinary levels for the time of year.

 

The solstice flakes marked a continuation of a snowy stretch that began in January and February and lingered through spring. Even before the solstice snow, The Denver Post wrote, the state's snowpack was "in virtually every numerical sense . . . off the charts." At the time, the snowpack was 751 percent above normal.

 

Due to the new snow Friday into the weekend, the Natural Resources Conservation Service reported that the state's snowpack ballooned to 4,121 percent above normal as of Monday. This number is so high because ordinarily very little snow is left by late June, and cold temperatures late into the spring helped preserve what fell earlier.

 

After the weekend blanket of white, the scenes in the high country west of Denver resembled midwinter. Enough snow fell to close roads, while many ski areas reported accumulation, including Breckenridge, Vail, Beaver Creek, Arapahoe Basin and Steamboat Springs.

 

At Steamboat, snow stakes showed up to around 20 inches Saturday. CNN wrote that the last time this area witnessed snow this late in the season was June 17, 1928. It averages just 0.1 inches in June and normally sees its last day of snow around May 6.

 

At Arapahoe Basin, so much snow has fallen since the winter that it has stayed opened for skiing on weekends through the month. It declared Saturday a powder day after a fresh coating of two inches. The resort plans to open again next weekend and possibly over the July 4 weekend, its blog says.

 

The snow was triggered by an unusually cold pool of air at high altitudes over the western United States combined with a vigorous weather disturbance that ejected out of the Southwest.

 

While the snow may have some in the Colorado high country craving warmer temperatures, the onslaught of precipitation since January has ended a costly drought in the state, and the elevated snowpack and runoff are expected to lower Colorado's wildfire risk through the summer.
