    Neither are yours (and lucky for you given it's the "16th Century philosophy" or "Theater arts" degree of the science world).

    Nope, no arrogance there.

    And given how almost inconceivably poorly those climate models have performed, one wonders how much the climate modelers "clearly" understand.

    2 things.

    1. Climate is long term. In terms of climate a decade is a small unit of measure.

    2. the 10 warmest years on record have all been within the last 20. so the earth is warming.

    My name has been put on the '97% of scientists who believe in climate change' list. I've done research and published dozens of paper in journals such as: Climatic Change and International Journal of Climatology. I'm not a climate scientist/modeller (my field is hydrology/hydrometeorology) but I've worked with climate scientists, climate modellers and climate model outputs for the past 20 years. What's your qualification ?

    With the rainfall forecasts, I woke up on the wrong foot and decided to call bullshit on your bullshit. Clearly that was a mistake and I'll go back to my 'don't react to that BS' mode.

    You can definitely see the mood on this forum change when the weather goes bad. See all of last winter, for example.

    It's with blanket statements like these that you keep on discrediting yourself.

    I think Jay Peak should hold up ok with their 191" snowfall total by January 9.

    Jay Peak totals are on the optimistic side. There is however a solid 4-5 feet on the ground at higher altitudes that would translate to anywhere between 10 to 14 feet of snow. They are actually not that far off for upper elevations. There is half of that at the base (1800 feet) and almost nothing at Montgomery Center (200 feet).

    I'm not worried about losing snow. The freeze-up will however ruin everything till the next snowfall. Backcountry conditions are incredible right now, especially considering it's early January. I'm not of fan of icy slopes at tunaspeed.

    Funny thing about science - if you're infrequently, occasionally, frequently, or often, wrong, you just may want to check your theory (or at least not be so dogmatically certain about it).

    Is your name on any other bogus lists of dubious origin and ambiguously unverifiable mathematical calculation?
