Please don't add comments to this thread because I know what happens in this debate (I'll just ask Scott to delete the thread). However, the contents of the article are intriguing (and not well publicized).

I actually saw that previously and thought it was quite interesting. For sake of the few on here who will make it a bash fest, I'll not give one side or the other opinion on it.

One step closer to my dream of opening a cross country ski center on the beach in Panama City, Florida, named "MargaritaGrass" in honor of Jimmy Buffett and Chip Chase.

AHH SO Margarita Grass, wut kind of grass do you like your margarita served in???? I prefer a rocks grass, salt & fruit, don't care so much for those big fancy Margarita grasses with the stems too top heavy, so easy to knock over.

Interesting article, but the premise is similar to that Joe Bastardi of Accuweather has been mentioning for some months now: that we are headed for climate cooling.
Of course, this is not a very popular, nor politically correct for those predicting the exact opposite.
Bottom line, let's hope the colder scenario holds true in the near and long term and our biggest problem is trying to afford and find transportation to WV Alpps ski areas covered with inexpensive natural white powdery snow!

I'm sorry, I can't stop myself. From the NASA website:

"Climatologists at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York City have found that 2007 tied with 1998 for Earth's second warmest year in a century."

I would like to mention that this article is blatently wrong. None of those sites that Phil Chapman cites in the article predict anything remotely close to a -0.7 C change in globally averaged temperature.


For those who are interested, send me a PM and I will give you my friend's commentary on the article. He wrote his PhD thesis on this topic.

I didn't mean to say "predict".

I meant to say "None of those sites that Phil Chapman cites in the article recorded anything remotely close to a -0.7 C change in globally averaged temperature in 2007 or for any modern year."

I'm just going to believe that article because it means eventually in 30 years or so, it'll start snowing in late september and won't quit till end of May and Timberline will actually have 100% open before Christmas for once. ;\)
