    err, re climate/green issues the guardians NEVER been one to tell truth, or even come close
    you read it for laughs, if you have a strong stomach and a wry sense of humour.
    the rest of their stuff is..pretty light on as well really

    The Bible says in the latter days men will turn their snow skis into water skis and it’s happening before our eyes. Sure, there’s still snow. But it’s watery, feeble snow. They don’t make snow like they used to! Armageddon ready for the climate apocalypse.

      A couple weeks ago I just saw 5″ of perfect powder fall here on the relatively low and flat land of Central Indiana. Seen plenty of snow here in the past but I can’t ever remember it being of the type so perfect for skiing. Now if we only had some damned hills worthy of the name around here!

      So the UN can say what ever they want and the Guardian can print it as if it’s significant but Giah has got their number.

        Why the heck do you think I took up caving when exiled to the flatlands of the mid-worst?

        • darrylb says:

          Gail, the flatlands of the mid-worst?? Do you mean like Nebraska and OK?
          I like the rolling hills in the part of MN where I live, and we enjoy both cross country and down hill skiing..

          Quiet Darryl, the Midwest is one of the few unspoiled areas left. Let the coasters think that the Midwest is suitable only for over flight. Nothing to see, move along…

          gator it’s too late. Their like locusts you know. They screw up where they are and then leave because it’s screwed up and then go somewhere else to screw that up. Texas is getting more than their fair share of it right now.

          Hey Rah! I found my little refuge, and I keep it as secret as possible. I basically live in between Mayberry and Mount Pilot, and life is good. We leave our doors unlocked and have no fear of criminals, or a police state. I can drive for hours without seeing an interstate or a city, and I can hunt from my patio. It is at times nearly unnervingly quiet, except for the critters, who keep me company.

          The town I grew up in had one flashing stop light, and is now indistinguishable from the other towns that surround it, completely. It was paradise, lost when it became too good. to pass up.

        • Gail Combs says:

          darrylb, I hung out with a bunch of fanatic climbers. That was their name for Indiana and the surrounding area.

        • rah says:

          Well I’m happy that your happy with where you are. I am too actually though as I said before I wish we had some hills. I have my acre outside of town and though I have a few neighbors to the east and west are farm fields and pastures. My neighbors are all really good people and we all like each other and keep in contact. My neighbor to the North and I are damned good friends that work on projects together and watch out for each others property. He owns the three acre field to the east and behind that is horse pasture. That field is our play area for go-carts. We have a ball in them. Slicks on grass and a 35 mph top speed is plenty and we slice and dice and have a ball. Nights by the camp fire with him and others. My 10″ Mead Star finder and dark enough skies to make it worth using consume some of my time during the nights I have to use it.

          I got lucky, I have elevation, my home sits on one of the highest points in the county. I can see the spire of the county courthouse 15 miles away, plus 2 other counties. Property taxes are low, traffic is unheard of, and there has only been one homicide in the 12+ years I have lived out here. It was a mentally disturbed man who killed his father, with whom he lived.

          We do get tourists visiting the historic towns nearby on the weekends, because it is beautiful up here. But they leave their money and return to Babel after the Sun sets, and seldom find my little road.

    I remember Davos when it was still relatively cheap! Great skiing. We used to leave for Davos shortly after midnight, so we could hit the slopes as soon as we got checked into our hostel. And this was at the height of the ice age scare, lots of virgin powder. On one trip it snowed so hard overnight, that we had to jump out of a second floor window with snow shovels to dig out.

  4. AWC says:

    The irony is that as soon as global cooling becomes the new fad, the global warming extremists will take credit for the drop in temperature. If it wasn’t for the Prius, we’d be frying eggs on the Alaskan tundra, and so on.

  5. darrylb says:

    Of course, this year snow is at a low level in the U.S. and next year, the odds are it will be higher than this year, because it is lower than average this year.
    Do not forget the main contributors of the so called science in the Guardian are the boys at SKS.

    • Gail Combs says:

      Too bad we could not have stashed a bunch of the SKS boys, Mann, Hansen, our good buddy Gavin, Al Gore and a bunch of others in the buildings that were collapsing under the snow load in Buffalo NY this November.

      Located at 1750m (5,700ft) in the Albert Burn Saddle on the north side of Dragonfly Peak, the Chalet is only 35km from Wanaka and lies on the edge of Mt Aspiring National Park with astounding views to Mt Aspiring with its tumbling glaciers, and to Mt Cook just visible on the horizon. Four months of the year it is buried under snow; but in summer, the gently sloping tussock grasses are dotted with wild flowers and snow-melt filled tarns.

  6. Robertv says:

    There is a massive fleet of 1,700 private jets flying into Davos, Switzerland right now. It’s interesting that the panicked and record attendance at Davos, a town of only 11,142, coincides with the stunning Swiss move from last week.
