Boulder Permanent Drought Update

Last week homeless people started a fire west of Boulder, which was immediately blamed by the locals on climate change.  This letter was published three days ago.

Pretty soon we will be faced with a year-round firefighting season.

It has hardly stopped raining since then. Boulder is getting wetter, with 2013 being the wettest year on record.

One year ago this week, we were buried in snow.

In 1898, forest fires covered the entire length of the Rockies in Colorado.

Forest fire burn acreage has plummeted in the US over the past 80 years.

As far as flooding goes, the 1894 Boulder flood was much larger than the 2013 flood.

Serious floods have affected downtown Boulder in 1894, 1896, 1906, 1909, 1916, 1921, 1938, and 1969 with the worst being those of May 31-June 2, 1894 and May 7, 1969.

So far it seems the flow at 14th St on Boulder Creek downtown has just been 3,100 cfs whereas the 1894 event was four times that.

Progressives have been trained to hate themselves and hate their country, so they naturally gravitate towards any theory which can make them feel bad about themselves. They think they need a carbon tax, but actually they need a psychiatrist.

    Fire needs fuel.
    Smokey Bear and friends have seen to that.
    Big fires are guaranteed.
    Any questions?
    The Era of Megafires is a 70-minute, multi-media, traveling presentation that features Dr. Paul Hessburg (Pacific Northwest Research Station, U.S. Forest Service), who has conducted fire and landscape ecology research for more than 27 years.
    There is only a very little said about climate change.
    We know a couple of the people doing this sort of research and Paul Hessburg is spot on. One friend is interviewed in one of the video clips.
    He had an “air quality” person there because one of the big problems is trying to get permits for prescribed burns when so many folks don’t like (can’t breath) smoke.
    If you can, go to one of these presentations.

  2. Tony – now very confident that CO2 was NOT the primary cause of warming seen since the post global cooling scare. And it was reading one of your posts that encouraged me to do the research that showed it.

    Probably 6″ or more of the white stuff tonight for Boulder. No drought here in Allentown, PA. either. Still ill but had to do my job. What’s the difference ? Be miserable in the truck or be miserable at home.

    Let me know if I’m posting too much off topic stuff:
    And people do send me stuff:

    Just a snippet from:

                              “Thoughts from the Ammo line”
    You will do well to understand – all the way down to a cellular level — that every single thing the Left says is a lie. Every. Single. Thing. Including whether or not it is currently raining. Millions of women are not dying of anorexia – which even a cursory glance around any mall would confirm. Women were not herded into the “Doll Corner” from the “Block Corner” in kindergarten. Women do not make 76 cents for every dollar a man makes, or the evil capitalists would hire ONLY women. One out of four college girls has not been sexually assaulted; President Trump is not anti-gay; there IS rampant, widespread voter fraud, which is precisely why the left cannot tolerate an investigation or picture ID. I could go on. And, no doubt, will.

    I might add that “Global Warming/Climate Change” is Bullshit.

      Trump did not collude with Russia over the election.
      Clinton did over money.
      Islam is not the religion of Peace.
      Trump is not anti women, Muslims are.
      Gun control does not make people safe. (See and liberal run inner city)
      Obama increased poverty and wealth disparity.
      Windmills and solar harm the grid and raise energy costs dramatically while doing nothing for the climate.
      Obama foreign policy art the middle East on fire, enabled ISIS and Al Queda.

    Seems to me that Boulder doesn’t have a climate change problem, they have a homeless-people-setting-illegal-fires-to-keep-warm problem.

    “Progressives have been trained to hate themselves and hate their country, so they naturally gravitate towards any theory which can make them feel bad about themselves.”

    They are not progressive, they are liberals. They are regressive.

    • Kris Johanson says:

      They don’t really, actually hate themselves. They love themselves. Hating the country as it was founded, and hating everyone else, is how they virtue-signal. It’s love of self.

  7. Mark Luhman says:

    Fire is a nature part of a forest, us humans and prehuman have been part of the cycle since our prehuman ancestors started using fire to change their local environment. It is only local change were are engaged in since we only occupy 3% of earth. This global BS is just that were are far to small, at best were are a third level force which means out efforts in net mean nothing.

    Could get a foot of snow this Friday into Saturday.
