    You can drive through that corner of Wyoming, going from Rapid City to the Denver area, and go for 70 miles without seeing a town. (Done it myself…) Tough place to get stuck in a blizzard!
    – No one ever said Texas had to cool off first for the glaciers to start compacting in the north. Pray for Canada!!

    If and when continental ice sheets form and bury canada they will be doing god’s work! Amen.

    • C. Peter Davis says:

      What a sick thing to say. I am Canadian and would love to do a bit of God’s work on you. Amen.

      • Steven Rowlandson says:

        Considering Canada’s sick politically correct policies and the extreme real estate prices it is not me who needs to apologize.
        Do you resent the idea that canada could be punished for its sins if not by the hand of man then at the hand of god through natural forces?
        As it was in the days of Noah so it is today. Back then it was a flood and perhaps soon it will be an ice age. If the experts are correct it will happen any way whether you or I like it or not.

          Highly remarkable: all the sinful countries facing an imminent glaciation are touched by the Arctic Circle. Mexico and Venezuela, Sri Lanka and Philippines, and other low-latitude countries: immune! Quite remarkable. Judgment by Geography. Christians pray for people in trouble. Don’t they?

    I explored the Snowy Range this summer. Last winter’s snow didn’t completely melt and people skied certain areas all summer. The snowpack was still a meter or two deep in places. Now new snow is falling on top of old snow. And they told us snow was a thing of the past.

    Robert,

    What the hell is going on with the internet. Over the last three days I have googled “Global cooling evidence”, and all I get is a Global Warming elephant dung like response about the shrinking polar bears, and the shrinking ice caps.
    BS. Appparently, Global Warming is correct.

    There was some shite about the Australian Alps with no show – which is total BS. I smell a rat.

    Very short summer in parts of the Rockies.
