Disturbing Reminder Of The Fossil Fuel Powered Early Spring

Saturday’s massive avalanche on Loveland Pass that killed five men was a stark reminder that backcountry skiers and snowboarders are far from out of the woods of avalanche danger this season.

“Even though the calendar says it’s April, we’re seeing snow conditions like it’s February,” said Ethan Greene, director of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center, or CAIC. “Skiers need to be aware that the conditions aren’t normal for this time of year. We’re not done with this avalanche season yet.”

Greene, who lives in Fort Collins, said that an unstable snowpack, coupled with April’s unusually heavy snowfall, could be a recipe for several more large avalanches this season. Already, 11 people have been killed in avalanches during the 2012-13 snow season, according to the Colorado Avalanche Information Center.

    Revenge of the cold weather is happening everywhere. Saskatchewan is having its coldest spring in over a century, setting multiple records. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatchewan/story/2013/04/22/sk-cold-spring-1304.html

    Completely consistant with Climate Change, of course!

    I would like to make an OT comment about the recent events in Boston. It’s a very simple question actually.

    Is there anyone besides me concerned about the “martial law” imposed on the good people of Boston to capture a single loon on the loose. Did it really take 9,000 law enforcement types to capture 1 guy? They forced innocent people out of their homes at gun point and not a peep out of the masses to complain about the heavy handed tactics. Something just isn’t right with this picture and I fear it was a practice run of much larger things in the background. Are they preparing for nationwide social unrest? Are the 1.6 billion rounds of ammo just another dot to connect? Someone help me out here and share your thought please.

      Seems you have them fairly well connected. Panama offers immediate residency and a work permit for $5,000. Booming economy, nil unemployment. Lower wages, but you can buy a simple house for 65k or so. Sunshine every day.

    I have a theory as to why this April is like a typical February in the Northern Hemisphere.

    I feel the Earth’s orbit has been severely modified into a much more elliptical shape.
    In other words a flatter elliptical orbit. The consequence of that is the Earth will be spending much longer further away from the Sun than has been the case for billions of years and we will have much shorter summers. As a result, ski seasons will be much longer, demand for fossil fuel heating will increase, shorter growing times means there will be a need for super fast GM crops, and due to additional ice at the polar regions the sea level will drop by approximately 1 foot per year over the next hundred years. (I’m buying land below the low tide mark right now!!)

    I call it the Flat Earth Ellipse Theory or FEET for short.

    I need lots of grant money to study FEET, including chalets with hot and cold running snow bunnies in Switzerland, Aspen and Thredbo. Everyone should be very scared of FEET and the consequences of FEET getting out of control. I will find a way of reversing this FEET disaster. I will need some associates to assist in my quest to find a solution, to draw up nice graphics and make press releases saying we are on the case to stop FEET from killing us all.

    Well ……. it’s as good as the bullsh!t CAGW story being sprouted by the warmist zombies!!
