Snowstorms in Desert Southwest

The desert SW is being hit with a major snowstorm. Just think if we had those massive carbon taxes in place, how much more cold it could be! 🥶

It`s plenty damn cold in NCIA this morning, we had to keep our brass monkeys by the corn stove   Smiley Happy

Why would a tax make it colder? Oh yeah there’s no such thing as man influenced climate change. Sorry I forgot. More of the same coming and worse now that we don’t have that tax and are not in the accord any longer.

Cold here in Central KS has well, wish I had a corn stove.

However I'm betting that the average year to date temperature is just slightly higher or warmer than the previous record high Smiley Wink

Kinda like the recent Dennison Admin EPA report.

 

A neat two step pivot from denial to various other obfuscations.

 

Virtually all useful idiots were moved seamlessly on board.

 

Probably a function of the revelation that the fossil fuels industry knew all along but funded the denialist movement.

 

A tobacco magnitude lawsuit would dry up 90% of the funding of the wingershere.

 

And then......Venezuela!!!! and gun grabbin'.

I wondered if you were going to correct, Haywood!! LOL!! We have only seen it, "snow" in the valley, and that not snow, more like small hail.

Eddy, when are you going to figure out that global warming/climate change does not necessarily mean that there is going to a whole of hot weather. Climate is different than weather and as the earth gets warmer, especially the oceans, weather becomes more volatile which means the cold can be colder, the hot can be hotter, tornados stronger, hurricanes much stronger and it doesn’t take much of an increase in temp to create these conditions. So when you say things like it is really cold in Kansas, implying the global warming is BS, you might as well say there is no world hunger because you just ate your fill and you aren’t hungry.

Nothing humorless about people who don’t know the difference between weather and climate!!

Re: Snowstorms in Desert Southwest

Here is the definition of "climate", weather conditions measured over a long period of time.  So what do you consider a long period of time? 10,000yrs?  Iowa was mostly under a 1 mile sheet of ice back then.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Climate

 

 

Climate is the statistics of weather over long periods of time.[1][2] It is measured by assessing the patterns of variation in temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind, precipitation, atmospheric particle count and other meteorological variables in a given region over long periods of time. Climate differs from weather, in that weather only describes the short-term conditions of these variables in a given region.
