Save Our Snow!

Nine years ago this week, the UK government’s top scientist announced the end of Scottish skiing, due to a 0.0001 mole fraction increase in an essential and harmless trace gas over the prior century.

Eighteen years ago, CRU announced the end of snow in the UK, for the same reason.

According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”. “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.

David Parker, at the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research in Berkshire, says ultimately, British children could have only virtual experience of snow. Via the internet, they might wonder at polar scenes – or eventually “feel” virtual cold.

This is what Scottish skiing looks like in 2018.

Scottish Ski resort closed – there’s too much snow

There is an organization called  “Save Our Snow” which appears to be a front for the solar panel business, and is attempting to extort ski resorts into buying lots of solar panels – or be put on their list of planet destroying ski resorts.

Save Our Snow – Be the change.

Once scientists start down the road to mindless superstition based on defective observation, it can take decades to recover – like the belief that Martians were building canals.

Democrats and progressives worship scientists as if they were gods, when in fact most are just like any other flawed, corruptible and superstitious human being.

    No they don’t. They worship progressives, some of whom are “scientists”. Here is the proof that they do not worship scientists…

      Speak up for persecuted Soviet scientists

      By Michael Melnick and Mark Kac, Michael Melnick is with the laboratory for developmental biology and Mark Kac the department of mathematics at the University of Southern California. They are member and co-chairman, respectively, of the Committee of Concerned Scientists.
      September 1, 1982

      A growing number of Soviet scientists faced with the alternatives of inner torment or emigration to a place that allows them to ”behold the truth” openly have courageously chosen the latter. This choice has made and continues to make them targets of vile persecution.

      Soviet scientific and governmental authorities, in a particularly pernicious form of retribution, are now systematically revoking academic degrees of scientists who apply to emigrate, in addition to depriving them of employment.

      In 1976 new regulations were enacted regarding VAK (All-Soviet Attestation Committee), a bureaucratic entity responsible for approving all advanced degrees. The revision requires close scrutiny of the candidate’s political attitude. The Soviets now are applying this stipulation retroactively to those seeking emigration.

      The vulgarity of this procedure is explicitly revealed by the actions of so-called ”scientific councils” of the various institutes and university faculties.

      Recently the Committee of Concerned Scientists received the stenographic transcript of a Jan. 20, 1982, meeting of the scientific council of the Geology Faculty at Moscow State University. The hearing concerned Vladimir G. Melamed, a geophysicist who has worked at that university for approximately 30 years. Prof. A. V. Kalinin presented Dr. Melamed’s case to the other council members as follows:

      ”According to the law, emigration is permitted for family reunification. In this regard Melamed informed the departments which provide exit visas. However, no law prohibits public organizations from judging Melamed’s activities.

      ‘We already knew him for a long time. We chose him to fulfill several functions. For many years we have seen that he took a moral stand; to us he was a notable figure. His behavior now causes us much distress.

      ”Academic titles in the USSR are not only conferred on grounds of scientific criteria. There are also other important factors. We consider the function of an academic title to be more important than in the capitalistic world.

      ”It gives not only the right to a function but also a salary. If Melamed would remain a doctor, he would continue to do those things of which he no longer has a right. His behavior should not be seen as a normal act. It clearly is an antipatriotic act for which he should be punished. . . . His titles should be taken away from him.”

      Currently, there are at least 65 scientists who have lost or are in the process of losing their academic degrees. Although the international scientific community has been aware of this for nearly a year, it has not reacted with sufficient vigor against this new horror.

      Perhaps a concrete example will force the already overburdened public conscience to take greater notice.

      Valery N. Soyfer (doctor of biology), a plant geneticist by training, was director of the Institute of Applied Molecular Biology and Genetics and chief of the Laboratory of Molecular Biology. Dr. Soyfer was a productive geneticist with well over 100 scientific publications. In 1979 he sought emigration from the Soviet Union and it was denied on the basis of ”state secrets.” Subsequently he was dismissed from his scientific position and denied other employment as a research sci-entist.

      To Dr. Soyfer the doors of scientific institutions, laboratories, libraries, seminars, conferences and symposia, editorial offices and publishing houses are shut.

      As the year 1981 ended Dr. Soyfer found himself in the position of having his academic degrees revoked by the Soviet authorities. The consequences for Dr. Soyfer and his family are evident.

      In a recent letter to the magazine Nature, Dr. Soyfer and nine of his colleagues in similar positions wrote, ”We are in a situation where we can count only on the support and solidarity of our colleagues abroad, on their help and sympathy.”

      But can they really? And if so, to what extent?

      We Western scientists need to make the Soviets acutely aware that we know what they are doing, that we condemn it, and that we have serious doubts about the veracity of Soviet scholarship in light of their attacks on human and academic freedom.

      Silence is the Soviets’ best ally, as it was the Nazis’. How else can they rule the generation?

        Marine scientist Peter Ridd has refused to accept a formal censure and gag order from James Cook University and expanded his Federal Court action to defend academic freedoms and free speech.

        A revised statement of claim alleges JCU trawled through private email conversations in a bid to bolster its misconduct case against him…

        JCU had found Professor Ridd guilty of “serious misconduct”, ­including denigrating a co-worker, denigrating the university, breaching confidentiality, publishing information outside of the university and disregarding his obligations as an employee.

        The university said by expressing concerns about the quality of some reef science, Professor Ridd had not acted in a “collegiate” manner.

    “As of 1 p.m. EST Wednesday, the season’s snowfall total was 152.1 inches at Erie International Airport, more than 12 feet of snow. This breaks the previous snowiest season of 2000-01 which had 149.1 inches. Snowfall records date back to the 1931-32 winter season, according to the National Weather Service.”

    And there is still lots of winter left!

    “Save Our Snow” is the name of that organization.

    “OUR” snow? Hmm… show me your purchase receipt and your notarized title.

    Update : It’s March and we still have strong snow storms, so this season will not be bad.
    2016-17 was a short season, but this season has ALREADY had twice the number of skier days than last years
