I know subtlety is difficult for you idiots, but the point made in the article *you* quoted from is that together with the year to year variability in precipitation, there is a long term trend in snowpack and temperature due to global warming which is not something that has been seen before in the period of human habitation of the area.

Are you walking to Al Gore speeches? Avoiding driving to sports games? Sold your car perhaps?
Nope, Al and I use the Internets whenever we can.

Nope, don't waste time on something as superficial as sports.

Nope. I have to use my truck to carry tools and building materials.

If you'd let me take a dump in your mouth, it would probably help things a lot.

Drought has happened before:
==========
Then there is California's annual rain and snowfall, which go up and down like a yo-yo.
"From a climate perspective, we've been here before," Martin Hoerling, a federal research meteorologist, said last week at a drought forum in Sacramento. "We shouldn't be surprised."
The state dried out like a prune in 1976-77 and before that in 1924, the most parched periods in the modern record. And ancient tree-ring records show that during the last millennium, conditions have at times been even worse.
Take the year 1580, which left the narrowest growth ring or none at all in the California trees that University of Arizona scientist David Meko used to reconstruct a 1,000-year history of stream flow in the Sacramento River Basin, the source of much of the state's water supply.
Our research confirms the tree ring studies. The droughts over the years are well documented. This is not very unique.

[QUOTE who="ratdownthemiddle ", "middleofthedownwronggull y"] think about that.[/QUOTE]

I think:

"ratdownthemiddle", "middleofthedownwronggull y" defends racists........ but not well.
We know "ratdownthemiddle", "middleofthedownwronggull y" can only say something non-scientific, because "ratdownthemiddle", "middleofthedownwronggull y" never had science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra & pre-calc in its poorly(or non-) earned hi skule DEE-ploomaa. We also know that "ratdownthemiddle", "middleofthedownwronggull y" is disrespectful of those less fortunate them itself.
I did say that "ratdownthemiddle", "middleofthedownwronggull y" could also be a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig. But "ratdownthemiddle", "middleofthedownwronggull y" proved it is a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig.

So you are saying that there is no social responsibility for the welfare of their workers. They are simply cattle who are dispensable and the corporations do not need to consider the welfare of workers and families when making decisions. It is only the CEO's who need to be considered.

Listen.. Predicted Climate Change In 1895 Was the first to link industrialization with negative environmental effects In 1895, Arrhenius presented a paper to the Stockholm Physical Society titled, "On the Influence of Carbonic Acid in the Air upon the Temperature of the Ground." This article described an energy budget model that considered the radiative effects of carbon dioxide (carbonic acid) and water vapor on the surface temperature of the Earth, and variations in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations.

Hence, even if all the research were halted at this point, the AGW/Climate Change would not cease because of the man-made greenhouse gases.in our atmosphere .
Arrhenius also presented arguments for eugenics to mitigate evolution. Nobody's perfect.

Nonsense, you negotiate for consideration when you apply for employment and performance evaluation. The left treats people like cattle, not your boss and HR department.

Businesses don't have any social responsibility; they are created to generate profit. Individuals have social responsibility, not organizations or states.

Still no experimental test of climate change mitigation or any geoengineering to create even the tiniest measurable global climate change? What's up with that?

Don't yourself to reviewing website comments. Begin to understand the scientific research we have performed and documented. It is only through scientific research that you'll gain understanding of our environment and its processes.

Nothing much wrong with campaigning for cousins not to have children together, which is what he did. Pity your parents didn't get the message.
