Meanwhile, the usual climate snake oil salesmen are pimping wildfires and heatwaves, and saying they can fix them.

    There are no such things as “normal” temperatures or rainfall. There are averages. This deliberate creeping use of the word implies a normality to weather and climate, both of which are always (one is tempted to say “normally”) changing. Once you have “normal” accepted as the case then any deviation is ipso facto proof of “climate change”. QED.

    Lake Powell inflows are currently the sixth highest on record since 1963 for June 11.

    The entire lake is rising about 15 inches a day and it is accelerating. This year’s runoff is very late due to colder than average temps and late snows.

    The current snowpack is over 800% for the date…normally almost zero at this time, there is nearly half a foot of water equivalent still in the upper basin as snow. As the melt gets going it should be sustained at high levels into July.

    Look at the National Interagency Fire Center table of data. The date ranges for each year are screwed up. (ie. 2019 is 01/01/*18* – 6/11/19). I wonder if this is just a row label typo of if their data is really messed up.
