Seventeen feet of new snow forecast for Glacier National Park

In the next ten days.

Kind of difficult for glaciers to melt away with that kind of snowfall.

Actually, this map on windy.com shows up to 9 feet of snow on the mountain ranges from southern British Columbia all the way north to Valdez, Alaska.

  1. Very easy for glaciers to melt away if the summers are hot enough. The melting of glaciers is driven primarily by hot summers, not lack of winter snowfall. There were six metres of snow high up in the European alps a couple of years ago and it all melted in a warm summer.

  3. Imagine swearing in a new Administration that is for shutting down fossil fuels, driving small farmers, ranchers, out of business, just as the world is being gripped by increasing record cold, snow, and other climate anomalies caused by a GSM! Imagine a new Administration that supports the UN, World Economic Forum, Gates Foundation, and many other entities who openly state the want to reduce the world’s population! Imagine a world of people ignorant or too dumb to realize they are being conditioned for their own slaughter!

  4. I think new glacier layers have to include little to no melt-back come summer and late snows and early autumn snows, which add weight to compress those new layers. Sun’s in a quiet time right now, too, which may have some influence.
    Weather in my area gets wackier every year. I’m hoping that it will be cold enough for me to create frozen soap bubbles on my front steps.
    WHERE IS MY CONFOUNDED SNOW?????????

  5. Glaicer National Park has had signs for the last quarter century reminding visitors that the glaicers were getting smaller due to global warming. Last year they had to be taken down because the glaicers have been advancing for the last several years.

    It is true that snow melts in the summer. Where there are glaicers there is an imbalance of melting to snowing accumulation. When glaicers advance it is telling us that there is less melting than snow fall.

    For several years retreating glaicers in Europe have made the headlines with the discovery of human remains found under the glaicers that were exposed due to the retreat. How interesting to think that we fear global warming when it is obvious that the world was once much warmer.

    To know that farming settelments on Greenland have had to be abandoned because of golbal cooling should open a few eyes but sadly it does not happen.

    The world temperatures go up and down in cycles but the big cycle that people ignore is the cycle of ice ages that say we are near the end of an inter-glacial warm period. We’ve had it nice for the last 11,000-12,000 years but I fear the enjoyable warmth is coming to an end.

    What people will do for food when much of Europe and North America is too cold to farm is a mystery to me.

    Sounding the alarm of global warming might be a popular thing to do but it is a mistaken viewpoint not based on science or history but on emotion. People think, “all those cars must be hurting the environment, lets get rid of them.” They use global warming as the reason to get rid of fossil fuels but they are terribly misguided. There is no proven research to say that carbon dioxide actually traps heat as in the so called greenhouse effect, in fact there is research that debunks that idea. Our carbon based fuels have allowed us to have our modern civilization. We will need our carbon based fuels until fusion fuels can be developed that work. Fusion based economy is always just 30 years around the corner. I’m sure we will develop the fusion economy and it may really just be years away. However long it takes the fossil fuels will effectively sustain us very well until then.

    I have no problem with Solar and wind power. I have two homes and have solar power on both of them but the entire earth fitted out with windmills and solar panels will not satisfy our tremendous need for energy with any reliability. Harvesting the suns energy is a grand idea, perhaps many square miles of solar panels in space and the energy beamed back to earth would be nearly as economical as fusion plants but I don’t think so.

    People should not speak in ignorance. What has happened to our society is that many people listen to a tiny fraction of science and make a decision of what is best for the world based on that. A tiny fraction of of information used to make a decision when much more information should be used is still ignorance.

  6. “Snow forecast”
    Shame the snow is coming now. We really want it at Xmas time LOL. I’m quite surprised we did get some in the UK this and last week. The main pain is the wretched lockdown so I doubt if anyone else is even noticing the weather as the whole country gets obsessed about a virus they are not going to catch.
    But as for the climate, it always changes, and both ways. Get over it.
