Algore Can Sleep A Bit More Comfortably Tonight; And The Kennedys Can Start Snow Skiing Year Round -- May 7, 2017

I normally would not post this but this is quite incredible, especially linking it with the other global warming story just posted.

For the first time in its history, Squaw Valley, Tahoe, will keep one of its ski lifts operating past July 4th:
According to The Tahoe Weekly, Squaw Valley will keep running its Shirley lift for skiers and riders past July 4th for the first time in the resort’s 68 year-long history.
As of today, Squaw Valley has seen 714″ of snow and their base is a whopping 232″ deep (that's over 19 feet deep).
  • nineteen years with no sign of global warming;
  • the extent of the Arctic sea ice is back where it was in April, 13 years ago;
  • thirteen years ago, the Arctic ice cap was extremely thin, but this at least a whopping (that word again) two meters thick;
  • the Greenland ice cap last winter increased in volume faster than at any time for years; and,
  • of course, the Antarctic has never shown any evidence of "shrinkage"
