I don't believe in "Global Warming" but i do believe the Earth does have warm/cold cyles and a "Natural Thermostat" North Atlantic Current is a "thermostat" for the Earth. Volcanoes is another and so on. I believe we have "contrubuted" to "Global Warming" but we are not the "cause" of "Global Warming". But anyway,i LOVE snow. Robert NWDC10
Yeah, I understand. I don't believe in gravity or that kooky idea that the earth is round, either.

From the USGS: " .. Measurement by the USGS in August from three glacier alpine areas in the North Cascades is 24 gallons/m2 a month. Measurement of runoff at the terminus of ten glaciers by NCGCP indicates Glacier runoff is 316 gallons/m2 a month. This is a 1316 percent increase versus non-glacier areas(pelto,1993). A small area of glacier cover is then important to total basin runoff. In Stehekin Basin, even through the glaciated area is only 3.1 percent, glaciers provide 35-40 percent of the basin's total late summer runoff (based on runoff measurements conducted from 1985-1989 below Yawning and Cache Col Glacier). The observed changes in glacier and alpine runoff make it apparent today that we can no longer intelligently manage our water resources without considering the changes in glacier runoff. The North Cascades Climate Project will continue to monitor the glaciers and make available its data for all to use. .. "
The scientists at the USGS must be leftovers from the Clinton and Carter administrations since they believe in this hogwash called Global Warming.

Well then who is?
Nature. The world's temperatures are not constant.
There was also a global warming trend about a thousand years ago, then things got cooler again, and now they are warming up again. In fact, it appears that our current trend of Global Warming started around 400 years ago.
Is mankind guilty of making things worse. Most probably. We certainly aren't helping, anyway. But did we cause it? No.

The Cascade Mountains also got some snow and i'm sure there is pleanty on the way. And September is early for snow. It tells me what kind of Winter we are going to have. And do a goodle search how plants take in extra carbon dioxide to make their food when they have pleanty of Nitrogen. Link:
