You don't need to say you're sorry....there is snow in at least 49 states now. The unfortunate thing is Al Gore, and others like him have politicised this theory to the point, some scientists have been caught skewing the reaserch data to their desired conclusions. Most believe that there are natural cycles, the Earth goes through.....and that is what we are experiencing.


You do have to be careful though....any "libs" within earshot will resort to name calling, and/or will infer any who believe differently than them, are ignorant, rather than win a healthy fact based debate. It's so much easier for them to intimidate people, and shut down any discussion.

I think accusing 'libs' of name calling is fairly pointless... its a human trait, humans on both sides of any debate do it in equal measure.

The odd thing in all of this is how much *most* people on *both* sides of any political argument agree with each other. Its just the dramatic blow-hards that get all the air time, for obvious reasons.

I could not have said it any better Larry, facts are facts, and skewed results are as Luke said "pointless".

I find these threads to be extremely gratifying... comforting, even.

Actually rain and fog on Whistler is not all that uncommon. While it normally has huge amounts of snow all season making it one of the most consistently snowy ski resorts in Canada, it's also a very temperate mountain. It is know for a lot of milder weather for a big mountain but it usually has enough snow endure.

Vancouver , if you take yearly average, has the warmest average temperature of all of Canadian cities and is also known as one of the rainiest. Victoria BC, being the wettest if I remember right. (I'm on the opposite coast.)

Whistler/Blackcomb and surrounding mountains 'should' have been a very safe bet for having lots of snow for the Olympic games but rain and fog should be no surprise.

Nope. Right cause.
[soapbox] The truth is we don't really know. When I was a kid in grade school (yes, less than a century ago), we were all warned about the next ice age. Less than 30 years later it had switched to global warming due to elevated CO2 emissions from a variety of sources.
There was a recent study in the Netherlands (?) where researchers pumped CO2 rich air into a field to simulate a global warming type of environment. The result: bigger, faster growing plants. Who Knew? Wait, I did, for one. The next time you have a nice, warm, wood burning fire, hold onto that log for a second longer. Feel how heavy it is? All that carbon mass came from CO2 that the tree breathed in during its life. And while it was living it returned O2 for us to breath.
Want to end global warming? Plant some trees. [/soapbox]

I'd just like to throw some facts into the ring.

Why global warming can mean more snow

Better than throwing them out the window like some have done. ;\)
