Thanks Champ!
Default For those of you who live in Denver...

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!

Loved it!

....and people want other to believe that our climate isn't changing. I think we've had about 6+ inches of rain in the last week and a half. Crazy ass ****, and the fugging humidity is weird.

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 b****. 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.

You should have stopped at "DUH". That describes the mentality of those who seem to think global warming/climate change is a farce.

Well, when I landed in Denver last Wednesday, it was a storm like I have never seen in CO and it lasted for about an hour. Then Thursday it rained practically all day. This is highly unusual for Colorado. I honestly don't remember it ever raining like that in 10 years that I lived there (1969-1979)

If it goes on for months you might have a point. Otherwise these are summer thunder storms. It's expected behavior. And didn't you live in Urbana? Or the northern neck?

I don't know how deep a coffee can is, but I had one out on the back porch and that sucker was full to the rim from the rains over the past week and a half.

Yep, that's normal!

How long have you lived here? There's a week like this every summer where the Front Range gets pounded.

No ****. A week like this happens every summer.

It wasn't normal in February when it was -20. Guess that means global cooling is happening now too.

Keep denying that there is a change in climate.
