NRDC : Cascades Snow Has Declined 60%

Since the early 1950s, snow accumulation has declined 60 percent and winter seasons have shortened in some areas of the Cascade Range in Oregon and Washington.

It is OK to lie when you are saving the planet.

Usually by August, most of the snow on Mount Rainier, the sleeping volcanic giant here, has long since melted. The meadows of wildflowers are abloom, and hikers galore are tramping along the trails.

But this year, temperatures have been colder than usual, keeping record mounds of old snow lying around. This has discouraged everyone, from the most rigorous climbers to backpackers, hikers and Sunday drivers

    Seems to be the way of it, alright:
    “Trust nothing this government says about global warming.
    THE Gillard government’s claims that Australia lags behind China in the effective price on carbon have been discredited by its Climate Change Department. The revelations, in documents obtained through a Freedom of Information application, show that rather than trailing China’s implicit carbon price by more than $12 per tonne, Australia’s effective price could already be higher. This undermines the government’s argument for Australia to introduce a carbon tax now at an additional cost of $23 per tonne.”

    Well they say “the past 50 years the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history.” but its easy to show that temps increased faster earlier in the century as these graphs from NOAA and Hadley show:

    NRDC = National Resources Defense Council

    All you need to know about them is that RFK jr. is one of their core members.

    He is a stuttering drug-addled empty-headed chip off the old blockhead.

    Just watch a speech or interview with him.

    Nothing else needs to be said about the NRDC except for the fact that RFK jr is involved.
