Was that not the most insane storm you've ever seen?

So freakin' intense. More lightning and thunder than I've ever witnessed... lightning just ripping through the air and constant, relentless, LOUD thunder...

Monsoon rain on top of all that!

Hey bro, how ya been?

I don't buy what McGaff nor what McGruder is selling. Just saying things/ weather patterns and extremes are, odd, to say the least.
The rain storm I ran into (literally) going south on Colorado Blvd last week was "Biblical", and it's almost been a daily occurance for me due to the amount of driving I do.

not only that but driving was an absolute bitch. i was visiting some family in lakewood and was driving home to aurora in 285/Hampden, right near the cross section of Hampden and Santa Fe there were massive puddles at least a solid foot deep. and this was about 45 minutes after the heavy rain had stopped.

duh! of course the weather is changing. it changes every day. that's why TV stations have weather forecasters and devote a segment of each broadcast to predicting the weather. changing weather is a natural phenomenon and has been occurring for BILLIONS of years.

Sure.. but unlike the last several billion years, there are things in the atmosphere that have never been there before. However, La Nina is hanging around this year, could just be a result of that.

But you can't assume global weather change is solely a "normal process" this time. New factors, possible new results. Unfortunately, it's possible we'll realize we are in fact to blame for changing weather.. and then it might be too late.

Big corps certainly know how to muddy the waters though. The reality is that now, around 97% of scientists agree climate change is real, and around 84% of those feel that it's been induced by humans.

But people like you have been duped by big corps out to squeeze every buck out of our pockets. I work for a large enviornmental company, and it's amazing how even small amounts of human interaction can have pronounced effects on the environment. People are deluding themselves if they feel they know better than the vast majority of scientists, or that humans could not possibly "interfere" with our planet's ecosystem in such a way. Just go visit the Texas-sized flotilla of plastic trash in MORE than one ocean to see the sort of impact we actually have.

You garden too, right?

Out here where i'm at, the "edges" of the season seem to be much more extreme (cold to hot - precipitation).

My friends that started their gardens indoors and waited till Mother's day to officially have them in the ground did the best.

Everyone else that stuck with some schedule lost a chunk of their garden early and had to redo.

I actually ended up helping some people out and got them into an indoor setup for winter and to start crops for spring.

The climate is obviously warming up, and that changes weather patterns. Mostly, I gather because the warming affects ocean currents, and the currents in the ocean affect everything else. I imagine our output of soot and CO2, etc probably contributes also.

Interesting to read this. The most intense rain I have ever witnessed in my life was on a trip to Virginia. We were just north of Fredricksburg and every car on I-95 pulled over and we all just sat there and waited for it to pass. It was an amazing deluge - heavier than the tropical storm I experienced in Florida.

there's heavy rain and/or hail almost every day on the Palmer Divide during the summer. yesterday's storms were normal here. i recall a storm a couple of years ago where the hail was coming down so fast and so hard that all my gutters and downspouts filled up with hail and that connection seam between the bottom of my downspouts and the plastic tubing that carries the water away from the house was the only place for the hail to escape and hail was shooting out of those seams a distance of 4 feet or so due to the pressure.

however, i didn't rush to replace all my light bulbs with CFLs because of it, which is just one of the absurd conclusions that global warmists demand based on their religious-like belief in mankind as the cause of all things bad.

anyway, the earth has been cooling for 10 years now, which is why the global warmists now refer to their religion as "climate change".

it's all a giant scam. Al Gore wants to get filthy rich and also control all aspects of your lives. i understand what he's up to... what i don't understand are the sheep who just go along with it even though the science behind it is bogus and the main global warmist scientists have been caught cooking the books with their stats.

if CO2 can be classified as a pollutant to be controlled, and human beings exhale CO2 with every breath, if they have their way, it's just a matter of time until the global warmists will be choosing who will live and who will die, and whether a couple will be allowed to have children or not. in fact EVERY aspect of your life will be under their control. this is the goal of all communist/socialist/fascist/progressive regimes. it's so obvious that this is their endgame. BTW, trees need CO2 to produce O2. CO2 is not a pollutant.

I do not remember anytime recently that we have had close to two weeks strait of some serious rainfall in the summer. Especially after how freaking wet the end of spring was.

I dont do politics, at all. But do you honestly believe this? If so, just a quick question- Every single Year I go to Alaska, and Every single year the Glaciers there are receeding more and more and more. If the planet is cooling and has been for 10 years now- why would the glacier be getting smaller? Especially since Ice expands when it cold, they should be getting larger.

it's a fact. the BBC (very much a believer in "climate change") even went so far last week as to concede the point but then publicize a study that tries to lay the blame for global cooling and the very same gases in the atmosphere that they also blame for causing global warming.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-14002264

your anecdote about glaciers has no scientific merit. it's merely an observation. the earth does not exist in a steady state condition. all your observation does is confirm that fact. it doesn't in any way explain why the change in the glaciers is occurring, or if it has occurred before and if it will occur again and what process may be causing it.

if you want to believe in global warming or climate change so completely that all evidence against it is discarded and dismissed as irrelevant, then that's your right. just don't dismantle civilization and the global economy and make life worse for EVERYBODY because it makes you feel like a better person for doing so. go live in a cave and eat hemp and wipe your ass with tree leaves. that's fine with me. just don't tell me that i have to change the lightbulbs in my house, or drive a goddamned Prius, or pay a carbon offset/tax.

where is the data to support that claim? who funded it? do they have an agenda? etc. these are all the sorts of questions that spring to my mind on this subject because it has become so heavily politicized and there is BIG GRANT MONEY involved. the pressure to deliver results to confirm the popular view is intense. deliver results that contradict AGW and you'll see your grant money dry up.

because of this, it's one of those subjects you can't debate. scientists involved in this area know who butters their bread. non-scientists in the public only know what they've been told to believe by the media and school system. if you're a scientist who goes against AGW, you're considered a crank and face career problems. because of all this, i don't try to convince people. if they believe in AGW with a religious fervor, nothing can change that belief. i don't bother.

the engineer in me says that it's the sun (you know, the heat source for all of our weather) that needs to be studied. when you do, you'll see that the sun has entered a period of reduced activity. that period seems to match up with the current cooling cycle. imagine that?

http://anhonestclimatedebate.wordpress.com/2011/06/05/solar-cycles-cause-global-warming-cooling/

so the Al Gore's of the world can run around and demand that the whole of humankind must change, but it's not going to make one bit of difference (in my opinion) because what we may cause is only a drop in the bucket. we're essentially not part of the equation. but, politically, AGW can become a very powerful tool to enact socialist wealth-redistribution goals. see Kyoto. see cap-and-trade. that's what's going on and that's why the debate matters, except there is no debate. no dissent is tolerated on this issue. doesn't that bother you? it bothers me.

anyway, i've got a busy afternoon so i won't be logged in to have a dialogue. like i said, there are some people who just believe it to be true and they'll likely chime in and attack. i can't convince them, so i won't bother. to be honest, if they want to change their life to be more "green-friendly" (whatever the hell that means), more power to them. the problem i have is when they start imposing their beliefs on me and telling me what i can and cannot do.

Man we have had over 4 inches of rain in the past 7 days. That lightning storm last night was the most spectacular and yet frightening event I have ever seen. You could feel the electricity. Crazy storms this past week.

It has been absolutely like nothing I've ever seen, last night was ridiculous, driving on I-25 at 730pm today was like driving through a flood.

Its not ordinary because of how intense the storms have been, but come on, Colorado has ALWAYS had crazy, wacky, and different weather.

If you've lived here your whole life you expect the unexpected. This IS an El Nino year, and we traditionally get heavier storms like this when that stream is in effect.

I was just commenting earlier this summer about how I really miss the big, thunderous downpour storms that we've gotten in the past.

Whaddya know? They're back this season.

Stop making something out of nothing and stop turning this thread into a pissing match about global warming.

The storms have been crazy and freakish, but also quite awesome and beautiful in their own way. Take it for what it is!

It's common knowledge that the anti-gravity vortex created by the electrical potential difference in lightning storms promotes earthquakes.

BUMP!

Ok so it's an off topic bump but wanted to stick this somewhere.

Sorry front rangers. You can't dump on Aurora anymore as a crime ridden town. Statistically and FACTUALLY it ranks as of the top 10 safest cities in America. The crime that was typically known in Aurora was on the Colfax corridor but with the Anshutz development (wow) the thieves, thugs, and dealers have moved to Denver and maybe Boulder.

Aurora and Colorado Springs have recently been named two of Forbes' top 10 safest cities in America, prompting some bewildered reactions from Coloradans.

The magazine based their findings on FBI-reported violent crime rates and traffic fatality rates by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Only cities with populations over 250,000 were included in the study.

Colorado Springs was ranked No. 8 in the study, despite the fact that El Paso County has the highest number of referrals of suspected child abuse in the state, and just last year had some of the fastest growing rates in child poverty.

The city of Aurora ranked No. 9 with a lower violent crime rate than Colorado Springs, but a higher car fatality rate.

Click over to Forbes Magazine to see what other cities made the list.
