A very good article on the future of our skiing and riding and it doesn't look good.

Wink 70 percent?

"He points to one study that shows snowpack in the Cascades and Sierra Nevada could fall by 70 percent by 2050." [1]


The Sierra Nevada and Cascades traditionally receive a LOT of snow; anything in Colorado would look meagre in comparison. Hard to fathom, but if really 70 percent less snow there by 2050—and I presume that doesn't as much mean the northern Cascades—then the outlook for Colorado and its ski industry could not be good.

As more data comes out that might show these scenarios as likely, will our leaders heed the warnings and do anything to curb growth & water usage?

My guess is that status quo/short-term thinking will prevail as usual, and CO could end up with too many people and not enough water - growing houses will be more a priority than growing food.

If I were King I'd start with mandatory xeriscaping. What a waste of H20.

It's a perfect storm lining up that we can see ... persistent drought, growing population, a push to increase oil & gas recovery (i.e. fracking), a stagnant economy, increased taxes/cost of living, ski industry potentially going belly-up in the next few decades, farming & ag struggling ...

What could possibly go wrong?

The latest Monarch has ever opened is Dec. 15. I think that may change this winter.
300 people are twiddling their thumbs in Salida right now.

I read a great article by Alberto Gorez, the noted S. American global cooling climatologist, who says we are going into an ice age. Have you noticed all of the record breaking cold all over the world this year, most notably in the southern hemisphere...... But even California is shivering......would you like to buy some carbon debits to help warm things back up?





lmao

Makes sense until you hear Sydney at the same time is hitting 104 and higher with regularity. Its climate change with warming being felt on an annual basis.

Nope,

The global warming scientists have already been caught in their lies and the earth has been cooling since 1997.......so says the very data that these bogus "scientists" surpressed for over 16 years.



You must get all of your "News" from Al Gore and the "ladies" from "The View"
