The press seems to be abandoning their California drought scam, and are now pushing the idea that global warming is going to make California flood.
““In a warmer climate, you might get more rain-on-snow at those higher elevations,” said hydrologist Keith Musselman, an assistant professor at the University of Colorado Boulder and the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research. “And that can cause rivers to rise and react in ways that we haven’t seen historically.”
California’s snowpack could be at risk from rain-on-snow. Here’s why
California’s worst flood occurred during January 1862, when warm rain melted all the snow in the mountains.
“One hundred and sixty years ago, the biggest flood in modern history wiped out California: 4,000 dead, one-third of all property destroyed, a quarter of the state’s 800,000 cattle drowned or starved. California went so utterly bankrupt that its governor, Legislature and state employees didn’t draw a paycheck for 18 months. The newly installed telegraph system fizzled, just the tops of its poles visible under feet of water, and roads were impassable. Eggs cost $3 a dozen (that’s $79 adjusted for inflation, if you thought today’s supply chain issues were bad).
The catastrophe began with a snowstorm in the Sierra. In early December 1861, upwards of 15 feet of snow fell in California’s eastern mountains. What followed, modern National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration researchers believe, was a series of atmospheric rivers. For 40 days, they kept coming, bringing warm rain and high winds. All of the fresh Sierra snow melted, turning frozen creeks into raging rivers as the water poured downstream.

This year California is experiencing record cold and snow.

“Officially the snowiest Oct-Feb period since 1970 as recorded by the Central Sierra Snow Lab near Donner Summit, and likely the highest since 1952. It’s also the coldest winter recorded so far for Tahoe City since 1952”
The amazing part of it all is, how the presstitutes and their college experts get away with tying the not-predicted record cold and snow to global warming. Unfazed and undaunted, with no shame whatsoever, they quickly adjust and barrel right along with the global warming scam. No matter what the weather does.
And then there are the mentally obese, who accept everything unquestioningly. First he states something that is generally true “In a warmer climate”, but he is implying that YOUR climate is now warmer, which is not true. Then he says something subjunctive, “You might get rain on snow,” which is just a hypothesis. In California, the bane of skiing is that as soon as it gets enough snow, it rains. It’s been like that for the 40 years that I have been here, but not this year. We are having temperatures in March that usually only occur in early January, and it’s not a warmer climate, and it’s not raining on snow, this year so far.
Keith Musselman doesn’t seem to know the weather patterns in California, not does the writer of the article. Jack Lee probability just woke up from his video game, and has never skied in California. How about we say, in past years, when less CO2 coupled with a warmer climate, we got rain on snow as early as January. This year, with more CO2 possibly making it colder, it hasn’t happened yet.
The more I listen to climate experts
the more I tend to think that there was no climate at all (or only one static never changing climate )
before co2 crossed 300ppm.
It is an existential thing,of the “Is there life after death”-kind.
“Was there a Hitler before Trump?”
“Was there a climate before 300ppm?”
Everything and Anything climate related that happens nowadays
is always related to global warming .
I wonder how climate,and especially abnormal weather events that killed hundreds of millions of people throughout history could even happen without the man made co2 ring that rules them all.
I have been skiing the Sierras for 45 years and have seen 2 similar winters. This year has been among the coldest I have experienced here. Twice during this time I have heard experts say “Lake Tahoe waterline is the lowest ever and will take decades to recover if ever.” The truth is the railroad has kept Sieera snowfall records for 150 years and there is no discernable pattern nor trend.
The weather records are akin to a Rohrschach test, their interpretation tells us far more about the observer than about the climate. The fundamental theory on which CO2 global warming is based, however, is easily shown to be thermodynamic nonsense.
Can you actually observe the CLIMATE? I can only observe the weather so what am I missing?
