Back from Denver

I woke up on the east coast today for the first time in a week. This is how Denver looked at 7:00 a.m. two mornings ago:
We got a couple of inches of snow in Denver over the last week. When I got home, I found my car safely embedded in a bank of snow.
As for those who somehow see the last two snowstorms as refuting the evidence of global warming, I would point out that no scientist (at least that I know of) is arguing that snow would stop falling in the winter.

Nice Pic. Good to meet you while you were here.

I've actually heard some interpretations that this cold winter is a result of global warming... Apparently it's the result of a polar inversion, where all the cold are from the Arctic has rushed down to the temperate zones, but the arctic region itself is much warmer than normal... and this polar inversion scenario is more likely in a global warming scenario.

Was wondering if you caught any news from the BBC this week.

the U.K.'s Telegraph reported that India was pulling out of the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and forming its own agency to study global warming. Because the Indian government feels it can't depend on the IPCC's work.



this line was of interest (....North American media have been very slow to recognize what's happening. The British media have been much more aggressive -- even those who are among the strongest supporters of climate action.

It's as if the N. American media have been trapped in one mindset for so long that it's hard for them to change gears.

This was from the Globe http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/opinions/the-great-global-warming-collapse/article1458206/

If your not aware, the Globe (and the stories author Margaret Wente) have been supporters of the man made global waring theory.
