Things shut down in your country when it snows? How cute.

Dude, we're up to the letter T already. Where have you been the last 4 months?...nothing like a late arrival eh?

So far, so underwhelming in Boulder. Barely anything until 7am and now it's snowing. Not hard, just at a steady pace.

Winter Storm Mehpocalypse would like a word, but can't be bothered to get up at the moment.

What a retarded strawman of a cartoon. no wonder you think sceptics are idiots. You don't even understand their position


Climate change deniers are idiots. Zeno's toon presents their position - that climate change doesn't exist because it gets cold in the winter - accurately & fairly. And as the toon says, that's not even close to how it works. Warmer air holds more moisture than colder air. When the temp & pressure of that air changes the moisture precipitates out. You get more snow and more rain than you would have otherwise. It's a simple concept that anyone who's taken a high school chemistry class can understand & prove.

No wonder conservatives hate education. It debunks their propaganda.

Meh, You'd be arrogant too if you lived in the great climate I have enjoyed my entire life. The only real downside is the Seattle like hipster run we've been on for a few years now. You're just jealous of the magnitude of outdoorsy entertainment options and the open spacing provided so we don't have to be crammed on top of each other.

Going to work, here. Buses are on time, which is odd, for Denver. Visibility is about 400 yards ahead. No accumulation on the roads, but the slush effect is starting to show. Should be a slow day at work.

Don't call them "skeptics". As they have already decided what they think is real, and no amount of evidence will convince them otherwise, they are in fact the exact opposite of a "skeptic".

As a resident of Northern Alberta, I'm getting a kick out of your puny, cutesey-boo, named-like-a-pet winter "storm."

The storm dumped more than a foot of snow on Flagstaff, Ariz. Up to a foot of snow was also reported in the mountains of Southern California (Riverside County).

Or as we call it in Northern Canada, Tuesday.
 
2013-03-09 10:23:32 AM  
Snow just started coming down on the north side of Colorado Springs about a half hour ago. The weather computer is calling for 4-7 inches here. I hope it's more.

/giggle!

The skunks there must love snow. My wife also went to NAU. I told her there are way too many environmentalists there to have a lumberjack as a mascot. Since skunks are all over campus, the mascot should be a skunk. She didn't agree, but does hate the new, angry version of Louie.

She also doesn't like "Northern Arizona University" being sung to the tune of "National American University".

That Low Pressure system in south Colorado looks like it has a mind to set up in the Oklahoma Panhandle and if it does ... you be screwed. That's when your Front Range gets an 'upslope blizzard' from the counter-clockwise spin of the storm trying to push it's northernmost part up and over the Continental Divide ... from the East.

That means dump dump dump weight to do it, and the weight is ... moisture.

Better get a shovel and some cocoa.

The objective of RW anti-climate change propaganda is to maintain the profits of fossil fuel producing corporations. Period. The central tenet of this propaganda is that the planet is NOT heating up, in spite of all the evidence. This is the point of the OP: "Is ten inches of snow in Flagstaff a sure sign of global warming?", and stirfrybry's reply to Zeno-25. What you're doing - without tossing subby & stirfrybry under the bus - is presenting the "reasonable" front of the RW propaganda campaign: Well OF COURSE the world is heating up. But it's not OUR fault. Again, in spite of all the evidence.

Sunrise is PACKED with people today. I live less than half an hour from there. All the locals are in, plus half of Phoenix and Tucson. If you come, do so very early in the morning and plan on going back late the same day, because there's not a motel room to be found on the weekend. I think there's some sort of snowboard competition today

I don't remember any Skunks, but that doesn't mean they weren't there.  I saw other wildlife, and would be dodging deer on the roads.  That being said, I used to get skunks in my back yard in Sacramento, and now see Coyotes and Javalina in my neighborhood in Scottsdale.

NAU has a great Forestry program, so Louie ain't going anywhere.

I agree with her 1000% about the NAU/NAU thing.  I want to say the logos are simular.

While there's no denying that the climate is getting warmer, I can't help but feel this argument is a straw man of epic proportions. Only somebody who is reduced to exclusive mass transit travel could possibly miss how secure Big Oil's profits are. We drivers are constantly reminded of this fact, every time we fill up. While this may have changed, I was previously informed that most subway and other forms of mass transit are underwritten by the taxes we automobile owners pay on our gasoline, further driving our costs up. Go too far, and people cut back on their driving, lessening the gas they buy, and lessening the taxes which go towards you city-dwellers making Swiss cheese of your bedrock. Big Oil understands this, as well as a few other salient facts. They make their living transporting and supplying a hazardous volatile chemical by the farktonne on a daily basis. Without them, your cities wither and die, as there is no method of transporting the prodigious amounts of foie gras to the sidewalk cafes you sit at and pontificate about the damage done to the environment.

I think if you asked ten climate change deniers what is really happening, you'd get eight or nine different answers; mostly mutually exclusive, and self-inconsistent.

The Hawaiian CO2 observatory just reported a new all-time record CO2 concentration (that's not news, that has happened every year at this time for decades and decades).  What's new is the concentration is up 3 parts per million this year, second highest increase on record.  So, not only all-time record CO2 levels, but the rate of increase is continuing to rise.

Presumably most well-read climate change skeptics will not deny that the CO2 (and methane, and N2O) increases in the atmosphere are human-caused, right?

So then you'd only have to believe that greenhouse gases don't warm the atmosphere.  Hehe.

Well I think stoners do the "Bread and Milk" thing too, the shop across from my office was SLAMMED yesterday. Open today too, it's Denver... it takes a lot more than some snow to keep us in. We'd need to hit multiple feet before things really go nuts. When I left this morning for work the roads were dry. Slushy and sloppy on my lunch now, sure they will be frozen over and perfectly passable by the time I go home late this afternoon... It's the good wet heavy snow!

I was hoping for a big dump of snow last night so the wussy dayshift folks would call in and I'd get some immediate overtime, PLUS I'd avoid having to shovel until it slowed down... but that 8-14 inches predicted was maybe 2 in town, and the streets were never covered.

It's supposed to drop some more overnight again, and it's been cold all day so it might stick, but way overhyped.

My parents in the southern Arizona desert got more snow than we did, and that's more unusual than frigging Flagstaff seeing it.
