COLDER, WETTER, LONGER WINTERS
I could not help but laugh at â€śSierra Could Be Hit Hard by Climate Change,â€ť (Mammoth Times, May 13, 2011) as I looked out my window at still bud-less trees and a snowpack almost four times normal. Science use to be based on definite observation and facts which were either true or false. Now itâ€™s â€ścould, might, maybe, if.â€ť And no wonder. Anyone who pays attention to the weather lately might think winters were getting colder around here, not warmer. And they would be correct.
