Response to malaise (Reply #22)

46. There was a bunch of snow, and then warmer rain hit and it all melted...

...in Eastern Nebraska. In Central Nebraska, the same storm brought blizzard conditions.

It was a top 10 record year for snow in our area.

For the lurker climate change skeptics - it's easy to scoff at "warming" when you get record snow, but the takeaway needs to be that weather is becoming more extreme. Those swings to extremes will create cycles of floods and droughts; more extreme spring and fall seasons (tornadoes and hail) and more hurricanes. In the near term, P & C rates will soar (and deductibles will rise), and building codes will need to get way stricter to deal with that. Long term, if we don't get off fossil fuel, we'll die. Maybe not in 50 years; maybe not in a century - but way sooner than we should.
