More Global Warming from The People’s Republic of Vermont … Snow on Memorial Day


Memorial Day is Vermont … any one want to go skiing?

A note to Al Gore … here are some more examples of global warming as fresh snow fell in GoreGreenthe Green Mountains of the People’s Republic of Vermont. Or are we supposed to believe that snow fall is a result of global warming as well? Al, its not easy being green, especially in the Green Mountains I guess.

There’s nothing like a little fresh snow and lots of old mud to liven up an early summer hike.

Which is exactly what people are likely to find near the peaks of Vermont’s higher mountains this Memorial Day weekend, due to the snowy winter and some fresh flurries this week.

At 5 p.m. Tuesday, 18 inches of snow remained on the ground near the top of Mount Mansfield, Vermont’s highest peak. The snow cover includes some of the 3.5 inches of fresh fluff that descended on the mountaintop Monday. More light snow is likely over northern Vermont summits today and Thursday, the National Weather Service in South Burlington said. (Burlington Free Press)

Looks like weather patterns are actually cyclical in Vermont. Go figure. You mean in 1945 it snowed as well in Burlington, VT? Could it actually be that weather patterns are caused by the forces of nature?

May mountain snowfalls in Vermont are not infrequent. Snow has fallen on Vermont’s mountains every month of the year. Wet snow drove hikers off Mount Mansfield on July 1, 1988, and skiers explored four inches of fresh powder on Killington in August 1982.

In Burlington, the latest spring snow flurry on record came May 31, 1945, according to National Weather Service data.

      If anything thinks that we are not doing damage to our planet with all of the chemicals and careless behavior, they’re a FOOL! Of course not every weather change or phenom is caused by humans, but get real…we are doing some serious damage and there’s not a damn thing wrong with being GREEN.

      ooops…should have read “If ANYONE thinks…”

      Of course Global Warming causes snow fall…didn’t you see that wonderful movie “The Day Tomorrow” in which the evil environmentally insensitive United States finally gets what it deserves when a vengeful Mother Nature reacting to the onslaught of Global Warming strikes back with supper cooling….

      The solution to this terrible problem is obvious…we all need to buy carbon ofset credits from Al Gore….his Jet needs fuel…

      There is nothing wrong with being green. There is nothing wrong with conserving. There is nothing wrong with protecting one’s planet.

      However, do not think for one minute that man is more powerful than nurture. Man, thinks they are the center of the universe an all powerful. They are not.

      There is nothing more powerful and destructive that nature. Is man the fault of hurricanes, tsunamis, volcano’s, tornadoes, etc? They have been naturally occurring since the beginning of time.

      Man is a tiny, inconsequential speck as compared to nature.

      Protecting one’s environment is fine; however, nautre is nautre.

      The Greens have never of the LITTLE ICE AGE. We may be still warming up from the last big ice age. People are going feel foolish if they force everyone to live in a tent only to find that it is going to keep warming up any way.
      I have no children so if the Greens want make everyone to live in a tent and eat grass it is not going hurt me. Im to old to worry about it.

      You just don`t get it…..Man has and will continue to screw things up in everything we touch on this planet….Industrial Revolution…Oh forget it!! You can not get past the word warming.

      Onr thing for sure as Al and most ALL scientist state the planet will be just fine….It`s mankind that will not.

      Ray and Scared Monkey,

      Green doesn’t mean eating grass, but maybe your not familiar with this subject.

      Mr. Monkey, man IS nature.
      When we dropped the bomb on Hirashima and Nagasaki, it was Darwinian self-selection working on a simple planet off in the corner of some remote galaxy.

      If you miss the Pacific wild salmon this year, its cuz of man. If a flying chinese carp impales you on your boatride up the Mississippi, it’s because of man.

      If you eat that mercury poisoned shellfish and develop cancer, it was because of man. I could keep going for the rest of my life and not run out of direct cause and effects based on man.

      I know you don’t think of yourself as having any impact, when in fact buying gasoline helps fund terrorism, but you probably have not understood natural cause and effect.

      You don’t have any children? Natural selection at work. Your gene stops with you. Cause?

      You either couldn’t physically, or you just didn’t get it. I would think the latter.
      SM: Oh yes Earl you are the all knowing and a perfect example of why people who are greens are nut jobs.

      Your comment is typical name calling that works well on play grounds. Its just in the real world, our Alaskan friends now get some of the benefits of a warmer clime, but the Alaskan Pipeline is sinking into the now thawing permafrost.Hopefully gas will hit 10 bucks a gallon, that will cut emmissions.
      But you keep living with those 31,000 scientists who stated that cutting greenhouse gases will end scientific discovery. A little odd of a conclusion to draw from greenhouse gas to inventing?
      Why commit to an unproveable? Because it has become your new religion, deny any cause of anything and call those that care nutjobs.
      Yes I’m a nutjob, I ride a buke, have a garden, recycle, turn off lights when not in use, combine trips, and all the rest of the nutjob things we do, like argue with fools which in turn makes me a fool.
      What nutjob thought up the mutually assured destruction concept? You know, where with a flip of a few keys, the entire world would go up in a nuclear nightmare… oh yes… man can end life on this planet in about 4 hours…. ever seen a volcano or Tsunami do that?
      Didn’t think so.
      You keep having no impact, and no kids.
