CO2 Induced Warmth Forces French Skiing Slopes To Reopen

Apparently schoolkids won’t know what snow free summers look like (via Steven Goddard)

(The Local) Struggling to know what to do this weekend? Well, summer is officially here so why not head to the ski slopes of the French Pyrénées? Yes, believe it or not a French ski station is reopening its doors to make the most of the unseasonal snow.

A combination of an icy winter and a chilly spring has meant that for the first time ever in the month of June, skiers will have the option of heading to the pistes in the French Pyrénées, French TV TF1 reported on Wednesday.

After recent cold weather, bosses at the ski station Porte Puymorens in the Pyrénées-Orientales region of the mountain range that divides France from Spain have taken the exceptional step to re-open the slopes this weekend after they had closed them at the end of the season in April. (snip)

Those who are not cheered by the prospect of skiing in June should not hold out for any real summer weather just yet, although there is hope the sun might make an appearance in France in July and August.

All because someone refused to stop using their icemaker. Tsk, tsk.

    WOW it snowed in France .
    Of course when we look at the WHOLE of the planet we still see HOT: April being the 13th warmest on record (combied sea land) March was the 10th warmest on record (yes it was a cold spring in the USA) and Feb made it to the 9th spot on the all time warmest Feb. The New Ice Age ? I don’t see I will see it in my lifetime.

  2. What this proves, John, is that you’re pet belief is complete bullshit.

    Well, that and the fact that most Warmists refuse to practice what they preach.

    So which is it, do we ignore the snow or do we ignore the NOAA statistics? I’m going to go out on a limb here and trust my lying eyes and go with the snow. Because after Climategate, I’ve seen that the NOAA and the rest of these statistics-based government agencies are full of crap.
    It’s simple: We can trust what we see happening or we can trust what we’re told for decades is going to happen and never does.

  4. Hi, Neat post. There’s an issue together with your web site in web explorer, might check this? IE nonetheless is the market leader and a good part of folks will pass over your great writing because of this problem.

    Right on Board Game Design. I completely agree with your overarching point about that topic you wrote about here with your most good weblog. Would you mind telling us what add-ons you used to write that? I’m looking to do my own excellent commenting after being away from commenting for a while. Do you find that using IE gives you the best performance when you comment on random blogs for no reason? Or does IE allow your comments to mean more to you?

    I’m betting that UncleDan is probably not using IE as his comments are always cogit, reasoned and sound. No, I’m not sucking up so don’t even ask. But yes, I like shrimp.
