“Worse Than They Thought”

The BBC says that the Colorado River is running out of water due to climate change, and it is “worse than scientists thought”

There has been no meaningful trend in Colorado River Basin snowpack over the last 80 years.

This is a repeat of a story they told ten years ago. The press  parrots the same lies over and over again, decade after decade.

    Climate Scientist prove to both sides that they are useless.

    To the ‘deniers’ as they are always wrong
    and even to the believers as they constantly admitt
    that it’s always worse than they predicted
    and that all parts of the worlds are warming twice as fast as the rest of the world.

    Part of the final judgement will be between those who love the truth and those that make lies along with those who love their lies. Liars and their lies are necessary to expose the commiserating followers.

    From my file of quotes & smart remarks:

    If the Climate Change headline says:
      “Worse than previously thought”
    Historical data is being re-written.

    Like the rest of the unsure, I will hold judgement until I hear what Meghan Markle thinks

    This article entitled “A Very Big Shock” made the front page of the Albuquerque Journal this morning. It is about a study out of Los Alamos which predicts increased drought and floods in the Colorado basin.
    It looks to me that the real problem is over subscription of water in the basin based on relatively wet conditions in the 1980s and 1990s. Climate change has become an excuse for bad management of resources. The same could be said about wildfires in the west.

    The problem is not with the Colorado river drying up. Its that too many people are trying to take the water. Up to 60% of Southern California’s water comes from the Colorado river. Phoenix gets almost half of its water from it as well. Look at all the golf courses and swimming pools in Phoenix filled with Colorado river water. As Phoenix grows from the transplants moving from California the problem will only get worse.

      Exactly!!!!!

      I just submitted the following comment to the Albuquerque Journal. Fat chance it will be published, but at least I feel better.

      The front-page Journal article “A Very Big Shock” of April 28 about the Los Alamos study of the Colorado river watershed is a good example of the “woke” pseudoscience that characterizes modern climate science. According to the study the watershed may experience more drought or more flooding, so no matter what happens they will be right. In a region characterized by drought and flooding, how will we know the difference? In other words, their hypothesis is not falsifiable. Maybe, the point of the study is to provide cover to the politicians who have oversubscribed water allocations? For the record, there has been no trend in Colorado river basin snowpack over the past 80 years. RBD

      Actually only 36% of Arizona’s water is from the Colorado River. And most golf courses use recycled waste water. It is actually a very tightly run water system in Arizona. The Salt River project from the Eastern Rockies of Arizona, as well as ground water, are our main sources.

    “worse than scientists thought”
    how dumb are you to believe people who readily admit that they get it wrong everytime they think

  8. ‘Worse than previously thought’ =’Incapable of making meaningful predictions’

  9. Rough rider says:

    Hey! Maybe the kind folks over in Stinson Beach, CA. could persuade their idiot governor to build a giant pipeline to the Colorado river basin and transport their rising sea levels to them. The lunacy continues.

  10. Whether the observation is ‘worse than predicted’ or ‘better than predicted’ the result is equivalent: You got it WRONG, ergo your predictions are GARBAGE.
