Global Warming

I just read Dr. Jeff Masters Wunderblog on Global Warming. His blog is always very interesting and informative. Dr. Masters reported the lowest temp ever recorded in the state of Maine a -50 degree reading taken on January 16. It apparently occurred at 7:15 am at a remote river gauge in Big Black River about four miles form the Canadian border.

I think the lowest temp ever recorded in California was -45 degrees in a town called Boca. The town lies at an elevation of 5,532 feet. I heard that snow can fall at a rate of 5 feet per hour. I wonder about that stat - seems pretty high to me.

Dr. Master goes on to say that an impressive cold wave hit the northern and eastern portions of the United States in January. If global warming is occurring we should not expect to see very many all-time city or state cold records being set.

But does this mean that Global Warming is not occurring - I think Global Warming is occurring. I operate a farm, and to me, the weather cycles at least in California have changed over last few years. I know that we have a critical shortage of water where I am as evidenced by water restrictions. I heard that some farmers in California had to chose between irrigating the Almonds or the alfalfa but not enough water for both. This seems to get worse every year. Maybe there should be some money from the bail out to help water districts.

Do you think there is global warming. You can vote on Dr. Masters blog or right here if you desire.

Very interesting - Where do you think the global warming will end. Will the average warming level off and will extremes start to come closer to average.

So many things affect the weather in California. You are correct - we do depend on the snow. The water situation here, is past critical into emergency and is starting to shut down some operations.
