Western U.S. States Could Maybe See Snow Disappear Or Something

Won’t anyone think of the children? Remember when the Independent published a story about snowfalls being a thing of the past, including the line “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is”? (you can see the entire article preserved here) And then yet another prediction here. And a few others. And here we have yet another prognostication of the end of snow

Snow may vanish for years at a time in Mountain West with climate warming

A new study provides a glimpse into the future of Western U.S. snow and the picture is far from rosy: In about 35 to 60 years, mountainous states are projected to be nearly snowless for years at a time if greenhouse gas emissions continue unchecked and climate change does not slow.

Well, that’s convenient. 30-60 years. What happens when this doesn’t come to fruition? Who’s held liable for the doommongering?

Due to rising temperatures, the region has already lost 20 percent of its snowpack since the 1950s. That’s enough water to fill Lake Mead, the nation’s largest human-made reservoir. It stands to lose another half, and possibly more, later this century, from the Rockies to the Sierra Nevada and into the Cascades of the Pacific Northwest, according to a literature synthesis conducted in the study leveraging dozens of peer-reviewed climate model projections.

The current snow situation in the West offers a preview of what the future may hold. Snow water equivalent, or the liquid water from snowpack, is much lower than normal in much of the Western United States. Snow cover across the nation is only at 6 percent — the lowest since records began in 2003.

Yet, snow cover was above normal last fall. Regardless, this is the type of thing one would expect during a Holocene warm period. No need to attribute witchcraft, er, human causes to this.

Such years are projected to become chronic and persistent, occurring for prolonged periods of five to 10 years at a time. By the end of the century, the majority of years (78 to 94 percent) could be nearly snowless in much of the Western United States, according to one model projection in the study.

    If anyone believes this claptrap they are a SHEEPLE and need top be led around with a ring through their(part your body part) in 2019 Glacier National Park had to take down ALL the Signs that said Glaciers would be gone by then. because that is when the global (BS) warming crowd said they would be gone)Right now we have snow on the ground and I am not even in the mountains.

  2. Hairy says:

    Most precipitation in our western dtstes falls as snow I the mountains
    The reason for the empty reservoirs is due to the lack of snow
    Since 1850 Glacier National Park has not lost a of its glaciers. Oy 50%
    Is the drought in AZ gods punishment for turning from red to purple?!

    There’s a 2-page list of climate catastrophe that has been predicted over the last 50 years – none of it has come even close to happening.
    The Earth is balanced in ways most chicken littles wouldn’t have the capacity to understand-or emulate.


    • L.G.Brandon says:

      Great list CC but it really doesn’t matter. AGW or glow-ball warming or whatever the current fad is has become a religion and therefore to the True Believers a matter of faith. Like Brandon won the election or Covid shots are vaccines these people will never admit to error or let facts or logic get in the way. It’s not in their DNA.

      Even here if you could look one of the leftist bloggers in the eye and point out each failure to launch for every prediction you would no more shake their faith in glow-ball warming than you could shake their faith in dummy Brandon. Can I have an Amen?

      Being a leftist means you never have to say you’re sorry…..or wrong.

  4. Hairy says:

    I am confused: are you the Brandon claiming victory in the election?
    This cult that you claim, has it taken control of the government of every country on the planet?
    And Trach the EV Ford Lightning costs about the same to buy as its fossil fueled model. Which is also equal to the average price of a new car in the USA

  5. STW says:

    Three years ago snow in Montana was 250 percent of normal.

  6. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The prediction was that the Earth would warm from the CO2 we humans added and continue to add to the atmosphere. The prediction is true!

    In 1895, Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius presented a paper to the Stockholm Physical Society titled, “On the Influence of Carbonic Acid in the Air upon the Temperature of the Ground.” This article considered the effects of atmospheric carbon dioxide (carbonic acid) and water vapor on the surface temperature of the Earth.

    Scientists and conservabloggers have had 125 years now to refute the hypothesis or to at least propose a credible alternative hypothesis.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Arrhenius later admitted his 1895 calculations were incorrect.
      Arrhenius himself acknowledged in 1905 that he had overestimated the impact of a doubling of CO2 by about two hundred and fifty to three hundred percent.

      You’ve been made aware of this before.
      Stop lying, Rimjob, you look like a dumbass.

        A Lie repeated often enough becomes the truth.

        The left fully believes in conspiracy theories. They just have their own set of conspiracy theories.

        Russia Collusion and AGW for starters.

        When Trump announces in 2022 after the right decimates the left in the November election there will be civil war. Remember most of the new gun owners arming themselves are from big cities and are most likely leftists preparing for NO POLICE in their newly formed Moat-protected Castles.

        They understand that all that food is teleported to the grocery stores and McDonald’s via alien energy beams and not sweating Mexicans and Fossil fuels bringing it to their store shelves.

    • Jl says:

      They’ve also had 125 years to verify the hypothesis through a simple experiment. An object emits LWIR, CO2 absorbs and re-emits some of that LWIR that returns and warms the initial object. But never been done.
      And Arrhenius also thought the extra CO2 was beneficial

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Here’s a further explanation of the effect with an embedded video of a simple experiment.

        We assume you understand that infrared radiation emitted from the Earth warms the atmosphere by interacting with CO2, water vapor and other greenhouse gases. If the atmosphere over a body of water or land is warmer doesn’t it make sense that there is a time dependent equilibration with the land and water? In fact, the Earth’s surface is warming just as is the atmosphere.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          CO2 doesn’t “trap” heat, dumbass.

          This has also been explained to you before.
