Some good news

Recommended Posts

There have been many climate change stories about the demise of winter sports in New Hampshire, with skiing being the most prominent casualty. If NH didn't have ski-able snow, there probably wouldn't be sled-able snow either. In today's Concord Monitor their science writer takes exception to the claim that climate change will eliminate skiing here, and points out that computer model results are based on the input data. Back in the dark ages of computing there was an acronym known as GIGO: Garbage In, Garbage Out. A little harsh maybe, but probably true.

How many of us would be around in the next century to care?

 

Not many, that's for sure..

But,,,,,

As the story's writer suggests, when it appears that things will end badly, people tend to give up, especially when things aren't going all that well currently. It's hard to stay motivated when you believe things will get progressively worse each year. Just consider reading this story to be like listening to the band on the Titanic on the last night.

I don't know about the future of snow, but currently, Pittsburg has had 51 inches already (John's NH Weather) and it's still snowing hard. Too bad it's not even winter yet!

I'm sure by the time hits most would have simply changed out to something else to do.
