Temperatures out here in the west have been frigid this winter, which is completely consistent with expert predictions of 10 degrees warming.

If carbon emissions increase, the average temperature at Park City will be 10.4 degrees warmer by 2100, and there likely will be no snowpack, according to the study. Skiing at Aspen, with an average temperature 8.6 degrees higher than now, will be marginal.

The devastation at Colorado and Utah ski areas simply can not be ignored.

    If Global Warming gets any worse they will have to close I70 due to glaciers covering it. Also the skiers will not be safe skiing on the glaciers and the ski industry will have to move down hill to warmer regions. ;)
