Saving New Mexico From Global Warming

I was planning on driving to Los Alamos yesterday, but global warming forced me to postpone my travel. They have had nearly three feet of snow in the past month and are expecting another 6-12 inches today.

In their effort to save New Mexico from global warming, progressives have succeeded in creating widespread wildlife habitat destruction.

The Renewable Fuel Standard is a federal program meant to combat climate change by diversifying our alternative fuel portfolio. Unfortunately, the program has not lived up to this original mission — only fuels from corn ethanol have seen successful production levels, cropland conversion has caused widespread habitat destruction, and it has failed to curb climate impacts.

    I wondered where the snow went. Here in Cayuga, Ontario, there’s nothing, but there have been freezing temperatures.

    Current forecasts notwithstanding, as of Jan 12 Bureau of Wreckthenation has most of the four corners ~80% of normal snowpack with the exception of SdC and Pecos.

    So far, Colorado River is tracking around average so far, so hopefully not the disaster of 2018. For reference below, 2017 and 16 were not bad years…

    7 inches in the past 12 hours at Dulles Airport. The Swamp is currently a winter wonderland! Local ski resorts will be packed tomorrow with all the shutdown Gov’t workers.

    New Mexico has bore the brunt of the long-term drought in the desert Southwest as it relates to the perpetually low water levels in the Elephant Butte Reservoir. It’s nice to see that the mountains of the state are getting a good walloping of snow cover this year so that with any luck, the spring meltwater can help refill not just that one but many of the other smaller reservoirs and rejuvenate the overall regional groundwater table.

    I just finished reading the book “The Worst Hard Time” by Timothy Egan, about the Dust Bowl years – before, during, and after.
    Much of the story is from the most western county in Oklahoma, Cimarron, and the town Boise City. Next prominent in the book is Baca County, CO, to the north. South is Dallam Cty, OK; and west is Union County, NM. Los Alamos is 220 miles southeast of Boise City, OK.
    Most of us of a certain age learned of the Dust Bowl with emphasis from the book “The Grapes of Wrath” by John Steinbeck. The book is characterized as a “realist novel” and, in addition, begins in eastern Oklahoma but immediately heads to California. Thus, there is a near-total difference between the two books.
    In an Epilogue, Egan brings the story forward to about 2004.

    I make the above comment because of Tony’s statement:
    In their effort to save New Mexico from global warming, progressives have succeeded in creating widespread wildlife habitat destruction.

    There is an echo of the destruction of the land of the Dust Bowl.

      Yes, every idiot knows that the unprecedented extreme heat and drought that affected most of the US and much of Canada in the 1930’s was caused by ten Oklahoma farmers plowing the soil incorrectly. (sarc)

    Umm, that’s impossible, because everyone knows that “Snow” is a thing of the past !

    Don’t believe “your” lying eye’s, only “I” know the truth, just because “You” see something that “appears” happening doesn’t mean that it is so…

    TRUST ME !!!

    Three feet of snow is consistent with global warming. As would be a Laurentide Ice Sheet.

    • Colorado Wellington says:

      I reckon there is no weather event that would disprove the global warming hypothesis to these people.

      I can picture Michael Mann’s intellectual offspring standing astride the next Laurentide Ice Sheet in Pennsylvania and yelling:

      “See? We told you so!”

    Saving [enter your name] from global warming:

    LOS ANGELES — Pacific Gas and Electric said on Monday that it would seek bankruptcy protection as “the only viable option” as the giant California utility faces billions of dollars in liability claims from two years of deadly wildfires.

    The company’s troubles pose a challenge to the state’s elected officials and regulators, who will ultimately decide whether part of the solution will be raising already high electricity rates. The problems could also make it harder to achieve California’s ambitious goals for renewable energy.

    Experts said PG&E’s predicament could be an early indicator of a wider economic toll from climate change, which is making wildfires more frequent and destructive. At the same time, the financial straits could handicap the utility’s ability to step up the kind of preventive measures it has been faulted for neglecting, like trimming trees and brush around power lines and transformers.

    Indeed, energy experts said PG&E’s intention to file for bankruptcy was one of the first major financial casualties from climate change — and far from the last.

    The California Public Utilities Commission, which regulates PG&E, could play a key role. Mr. Newsom has a vacancy to fill on the commission, and he could make his appointee its president, potentially determining whether the agency will tilt toward consumers or the utilities in its approach.

    The bankruptcy will allow PG&E to renegotiate its contracts with its electricity suppliers, which could hurt solar and wind farms that might struggle to make money and repay debts if they are forced to accept lower prices.

    This will be fun to watch if you live far enough from there.
