Huge Gathering In Jackson Hole Complains About Climate Doom

Can anyone tell me what’s wrong with this?

Climate change alters life at Fed’s Jackson Hole conference

When officials of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City sought a location for an annual economic symposium in 1982, they chose Jackson Hole, Wyoming, for a simple reason: It had fly-fishing.

Paul Volcker, the Fed chairman at the time, was known to enjoy the pastime, and it was hoped that the opportunity to do some fishing would draw Volcker away from Washington, D.C.’s late August heat. The ploy worked, and the Fed has held a conference there in late August ever since.

Now, though, warmer waters in Jackson Lake and the Snake River it empties into have led the Park Service to urge anglers to restrict their fishing to the morning hours. Catch-and-release fishing, the most common practice here, is harder on the fish when water is warmer, and the fish are also harder to catch later in the day.

It is just one example of how the consequences of climate change are now in plain view to Fed officials during their annual summer symposium in Jackson Hole. Wyoming’s Teton County has been afflicted by the same long-term drought that has lowered rivers and reservoir levels throughout the West.

Hmm, strange

Some water activities typically enjoyed by visitors to the Jackson Lake Lodge, where Fed officials are convening, have been canceled this summer. The Colter Bay Marina has been closed because of low water levels, an economic blow to the small businesses that rent motorboats and other equipment.

Many academic economists and central bankers from around the world attend the Fed’s conclave in Jackson Hole, a valley nestled amid the majestic Teton mountain peaks. The signs of climate damage are among the ways in which the region’s challenges are evident alongside the idyllic setting. The nearby town of Jackson is also struggling with soaring home prices, labor shortages and widening economic inequality.

Let me get this straight: you have all these people take fossil fueled trip from around the U.S. and the world, many in private jets (you can bet not a train or electric vehicle), and Reuters, and other outlets, are whining about ‘climate change’? Not that these people are massive climahypocrites?

    Why couldn’t they have held this oh-so-important meeting by videoconference?

    AGW reminds me of cancer.

    The Doctors(common sense) hit it with everything in their arsenal and still, the little cancerous cells find new little places to reek their poisonous effects on the body politic.

    In the end, cancer wins. Always. And in the west including the good ole USofA, AGW will ultimately win handing the world to RUSSIA/CHINA as we try to attach giant windmills to our nuclear ships and subs and mount a hundred solar panels on our tanks and planes while Russia and China get filthy rich selling the world Windmills, solar panels, and gas and oil.

    The USA becomes a shit hole of a country thanks to millions and millions of illiterates coming from Central and South America, while Chinese soldiers patrol our streets, and voila we become serfdoms to the China/Russia/IRAN axis of evil.
