EPA Says Declining Spring Snowpack In Oregon Is Proof Of Global Warming

So we can infer once again that the EPA has no idea what they are talking about.

It’s endless winter at Mt. Bachelor with record snowfall into May

By this time of year, most right-thinking people have forgotten about snow. But 22 miles outside of Bend, Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort recently surpassed its all-time record for seasonal snowfall, which was 606 inches. At press time, the current total stands at 633 inches — and counting. Compare that with the average snowfall: 387 inches.

    Whoops! Somebody is letting our little “scholar in residence”, Bill McCreepen, read the tea leaves again……Maybe he and Brian Williams at NBC should organize a “cry in” rally.

  2. They choose 1950 to skew the trend. The big decline was in a single year – 1976-77 (the pacific climate shift). Since then, Cascades snowpack has been increasing.

    just a side note Oregon 242 the old McKenzie hwy has snowdrifts 30 high here’s a portion of the report. BEND, Ore. — The annual battle of man vs. nature on the twisting, scenic McKenzie Pass Highway has tilted decidedly in favor of nature this year, with 30-foot snowdrifts making clearing the road a pricey proposition — and so, the state just might leave it to nature to do the work this year.

    So the Oregon Department of Transportation is not sure when the seasonal road will reopen.

    “Right now, ODOT is debating when/if to plow the highway, since it’s blocked by as much as 30 feet of snow,” ODOT Region 4 spokesman Peter Murphy said Friday.

    “It would potentially cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in fuel and equipment to open any time soon,” Murphy said, pegging the cost estimates at $100,000 to $250,000.

    As a result, he said, “Motorists should not expect to use the highway for some time, possibly until it thaws from natural forces.”

    “In recent memory, the snow has never been that high” at a location near the summit known as “the cut,” where the snow piles up the deepest, Murphy said. You may find to rest at http://www.ktvz.com/news/27806287/detail.html

    I know that people are suing the government to do MORE to protect the environment,
    specifically to prevent climate change. ( God save us all)
    But can anyone sue them for the blatant lies and twisted facts that I got shoved at me in 40 seconds on that EPA page. ?

  5. Jimash says:

    And of course I am including this snow nonsense.
    And the sea level rise nonsense.

  6. Amino Acids in Meteorites says:

    These “decreasing snow” things are optical illusions, sort of like when the moon is low to the horizon it looks much larger than when it’s high in the middle of the sky even though it’s the same size all the time.

    ;O)

  7. Andy Weiss says:

    There is another monster Gulf of Alaska storm in the pipeline that should slam Oregon late this week. Their snow season may be far from over.

  8. NikFromNYC says:

    Oregon, in October, when not much air conditioning or heating might create urban heating influence on the state average T data, isn’t warming:

    • Amino Acids in Meteorites says:

      You see, you link a graph that shows a slight cooling trend in the State of Oregon over the last 110 years. It doesn’t work that way. You can’t take one small area of the earth to prove climate is trending one way or the other.

      It was hot in the Moscow area for just over a week last summer. That proof of global warming. Global warming is happening and man is CERTAINLY the cause.

      ;O)
