Sometimes I'm Better at Prediction
There is a quite good El Nino forming up in the equatorial Pacific so rainfall this Fall and Winter should be better and perhaps good in the whole of California and western Nevada and the Sierra Madre snow pack should be about 70% of normal by the first day of Spring, 2016.
And 5 days from the first day of Spring, here are the snowpack and reservoir data.
I was under but still predicted the beginning of the end of the drought and the return of snow to the California mountains. And it was all entirely natural. Not a human produced CO2 molecule involved.
Here are the drought conditions in the US. Still bad in Southern California, Idaho and Montana. Everyplace else is good.
Being a climate change denier is an intellectual and scientific dead end. TX received rain which is good. The Greenland icecap is melting at an accelerated rate and Miami is starting to flood. Don't be a Ted Cruz or Jim Imhofe. It will only end in tears.
The intellectual dead end is your swallowing the pseudo science whole. The unexamined science is not for men to believe, to paraphrase Plato.
