Global warming kills the ski industry

From Inside Climate News last June 7:
Unabated Global Warming Threatens West's Snowpack, Water Supply
Oh No!

From Inside Climate News:
Low-elevation snowpack across the Rocky Mountains, the Sierra Nevada and the Cascades will disappear in the coming decades if global warming continues unabated, according to a new study. The changes will cause water shortages in the region and dry out forests and grasslands, the study's authors say.
According to the research, the snow line—the altitude above which it snows, and below which it rains—will climb as much as 800 feet in the Colorado Rockies, and 1,400 feet in the Rockies of Idaho and Wyoming by 2100 if greenhouse gas emissions continue at the current rate. The snow line will rise by an average of 950 feet across six Western mountain regions by century's end. The study, by a team of University of Utah scientists, was published online in the journal Geophysical Research Letters last month.
A shift of that magnitude means less spring runoff for millions of square miles of watersheds in the lower elevations of the West. The melting of the spring snowpack determines how much water feeds critical reservoirs in 11 Western states. That water helps sustain Phoenix, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and other cities, as well as farms and mountain ecosystems, through hot, dry summers.
Less spring snowpack means water managers will have to capture runoff earlier in the season, and dried up forests, brush and grasslands will increase early season wildfires. Western ski resorts will also be affected, because the snowline will rise above the base elevation of many of them, according to the study.
Well, we elected Donald Trump president, and that took care of that.

Floods soaked California and then there is this from MSN:


500 inches and counting: Snow has clobbered California ski resorts this winter
The snow amounts in California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range this winter are difficult to wrap your head around. In many cases topping 500 inches, they are some of the highest totals in memory.
At the Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows resort, seven feet fell in just the past week. The snow is so high that it buried chairlifts and ski patrol shacks.
So for once, the Global Warmers are right.

Global warming shut down the ski industry

There is too much snow to ski now.

  1. Another model poorly tweaked. Who can believe anything predicted for 100 years from now? My understanding is that these rains and snows are due to rivers of upper atmospheric moisture emanating from Hawaii and Thailand. Will they dissapear too? Anyway my son will be skiing Tahoe in July thanks to the great magician DT.

  2. Afrim was right! It's Chubby Rain, and the aliens are coming down in the raindrops and snowflakes! (That's what makes them chubby).

    Head for the hills! (Good anticipation, Don).

    I just read an article about how the soft-drink tax in Philadelphia is causing layoffs in convenience store workers, distribution warehouses and lower income for distributors and distributing agents.

    It's funny isn't it, that progressives don't care about jobs eliminated by a real soda tax of their own making, but do care that jobs and businesses will be eviscerated by anthropogenic global warming which has yet to be proven as anything but a theory resulting from the manipulation of climate data.

    1. Those jobs will be eviscerated by the taxes and regulations imposed by those global-warming believing, big government fans. Planned evisceration is good!

  4. Being correct in forecasting for COMPLETELY the wrong reason! Oh, the JOY!

  5. Did Al Gore show up for a weekend of biking on the ski trails? The Gore effect is amazing!!!

    1. Hahaha! If the Gore Effect was a stock, I'd go long hard and make a shit ton of money. As I used to tell my lib Greenie friends...the weather isn't your deal - the weather is God's deal. Boy, did that piss em off.

  7. That much snow will extend their season by months. Skiers love it when the temps are in the 50's. :-)

  9. It's really sad that now CA has all this snow & water- but has built NO new dams, as Gov. Moonbat believes all the glowball warmening BS, so he just "knew" we were in for 1000 years of drought.

    Environmental whackjobs (a prevalent species in this state) would rather tear down existing dams than build new ones; and as we have recently discovered, maintenance of existing dams is a very low-priority item.

    No, our Gov. Moonbat (recently upgraded from Gov. Moonbeam because of his outstanding lack of achievement) would rather spend our money on ensuring illegal aliens get red-carpet treatment, and in building high-speed (but slow) trains that run from Nowhere to North Nowhere.

    So when these snows melt, we can expect massive flooding and more infrastructure damage; and when all the water (and topsoil) is flushed out to sea, because we have nowhere to store it, we'll be back in drought. SMH.

    Well done, Gov. Moonbat!

    1. He was governor for the Water Resources project final phase but somehow the reservoirs for water storage for droughts and water containment in rainy times to lessen flooding were not constructed; ah but a high speed train, yep.
      I was offered a job in late 1972 as a operator somewhere in the Northern CA's Orville Dam down to LA on the canal's intermediary generating plants, but didn't take it. I made the right decision back then.

  10. Here in Montana we are having the worst winter since 1978-79, which I'm old enough to remember.
