122nd Birthday

I turn 60 on Thursday. Mt. St Helens has its 37th birthday, but the climate has its 122nd birthday. Due to a man-made overheated atmosphere, Boulder is expecting snow for the first time ever on May 18.

It has been nine years since University of Colorado professor Mark Williams announced the demise of snow and shorter ski seasons, based on “climate models.”

Study: Climate change may force skiers uphill

Snowpack is above normal throughout the west, and Lake Tahoe has almost 900% of normal snowpack. They will be skiing all summer.


Climate science and climate models are a complete farce. These people have no clue what they are talking about, and will say whatever is required to keep their scam money coming in.

  1. Happy Birthday Tony and many many more. Love your work (and pics too). Hope the little guy has a speedy recovery.

    “Snowpack is above normal throughout the west, and Lake Tahoe has almost 900% of normal snowpack”

    well yes… due to an extreme weather/precipitation event. a one off.

    Will that or what used to be ‘normal’ snowfall continue now every year? Odds are against it…

      So one year’s “weather” is deemed to be a “one off” statistically insignificant event.

      But a few decades of “climate” (as say compared to the Holocene or even the Quaternary) is deemed to be statistically significant, and can be used to definitively predict weather trends?

      I’d say that using one year’s “extreme” weather is just as meaningful a period to predict the next century as a period that covers decades.

      We get no useful insights into long term cycles from either.

      • Yes, but to the leftist, facts should never get in the way of the ideology. This is a religion we’er up against. Kind of like that other religion of intolerance.

      Griff’s view of climate

    • C. Driscoll says:

      The problem is that when all weather is proof of global warming, than no weather is. There will always be weather.

      Second, when the prognosticators of global warming fear make their predictions, they make them during normal ongoing weather events and then predict them to be never ending and catastrophic due to global warming. Drought, snow etc. Mother nature always proves them wrong in the long run.

      Another silly comment as you ignore that IPCC statement way back to 2001,where they said there would be LESS snow and more rain/freezing rain.

      In the years SINCE 2001, there has been a marked INCREASE in snow in the Northern Hemisphere.

      Another AGW based projection collapses………..

    • AndyG55 says:

      One year.??

      ahhh… so there was no recent El Nino spike, it was a weather event, a one off.

      So there has now been NO WARMING for 20+ years

      Eat another sock, griff.

      Great! Ms Griff agrees the models are crap.

      Now if she would only tell us why it is that she hates poor brown people.

    • RAH says:

      As would be expected the whole thing is lost on Griff. To the true believers any weather they feel supports their claims is “climate” and any weather that does not is just “weather”. Most evident in their harping on severe weather such as Tropical Storms. Katrina started them off and despite a record breaking hiatus with no Major hurricanes striking the US coast, is there anyone that doubts that if another storm the magnitude of Katrina or even another Sandy struck the chorus of it being a manifestation of “climate change” would be sung again?

    Happy Birthday Tony…
    Of course Mark Williams did say “may” so he is not wrong, no more than I am when I say you may get 3 feet of snow tomorrow…

  4. sunsettommy says:

    I am 57, understand what you went through a few years ago……..

  5. Steven Fraser says:

    We will get that global warming here texas on the 20th. The rainfall is projected to extend from the Rio Grande valley all the way to Chicago.

    And, Happy Birthday, young man!

  6. Windsong says:

    Happy birthday, Tony. Thursday could be a huge weather event in your area. If this mess that has been pounding us in Washington for the last two days (and more to come) hits you guys as hard, Watch Out!

    • Steven Fraser says:

      May is usually a wet month for Tx, but this year it started out more slowly than the prior 2, the ones that ended the multi-year dry period.

  7. GeologyJim says:

    Congrats and Happy Birthday, Tony –

    60 is the new 40, don’t you know?

    Glad to hear Oreo is back on the trail and hope his ailment was just a minor irregularity

    Best wishes to you all

  8. AndyG55 says:

    They feel absolutely ZERO embarrassment for their disqualified predictions.

    … often seeming to make the next one even more ridiculous.

  9. AndyG55 says:

    Day 135

    MASIE Arctic sea ice extent is above that of each of the following years:

    2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2014, 2015, 2016 (could add 2012 tomorrow)

    Slowest melting May in whole MASIE data.

    NSIDC 2017 extent is above 2004, 2006, 2015, 2016 (very close to a couple of other years)

    Slowest “melt from maximum” for last 11 days.

    Sorry I just got in from the road having put in 1,900 mi since 05:00 Sunday morning and posted about the Denver snow on another threat before I got to this one. BTW a Fed Ex truck bit it the same construction zone that took to life of one of our drivers. Passed the remains coming home.

    • AndyG55 says:

      So now the FebEx truck is just an ex-truck ?!

      • RAH says:

        What I saw was a FedEx trailer in two halves that had been lifted up onto the bridge by a back hoe. Could see what was down below. Found the story:

        So it was a FedEx truck pulling double pup trailers. In the US you will find two different color schemes on FedEx trucks and trailers. If the FedEx is red and purple then it’s a FedEx company driver. If the FedEx is green and purple then it’s a contractor driving for FedEx. Thus this one was a company truck driven by a company employee.

        Leaving out on Sunday morning I drove through that construction area. Here is the problem. The access to the construction area behind the concrete Jersey barriers is facing the traffic flow and only marked by the “A” frame temporary barricades. It should be at the other end facing away from the traffic flow. Dangerous for drivers and the guys working there.
