Three (3) feet of snow at a New York resort for Memorial Day weekend may encourage you to forget the barbeque and bring out your skis. Whiteface Mountain, a ski resort near Lake Placid at over 4,600 feet above sea level, has reported the astonishing late May snowstorm.
Arizona poster Jerry Harte asked, “Whiteface Mountain in Lake Placid, NY has 34 of snow on Memorial weekend. Nobel winner, Al Gore, says Arctic will be snow free in 15 month?”
Heh. Well, Jerry, I guess if those lyin’ polar bears need more snow, we can just send ‘em to New York.

Man caused global warming disbeliever present as requested.
There are many who believe that man's contribution of greenhouse gasses is the only thing stopping another ice age. Is it true? Who knows.
Here is what we do know. The global warming pushers have lied and continue to lie. The establishment attacks scientists who dispute man caused global warming instead of giving their theories adequate peer review. We also know that the currently offered "solutions" are nothing but a vehicle of wealth transfer from richer nations to poorer ones. They also tie in closely with agenda 21 which is just a way to get us all into big megaplexes we we can be more easily controlled. Does mankind contribute in a negative way to the sustainability of our biosphere? Yes. Are we the "sole" or even the largest cause? NO! The sun has been raising temperatures on planets all over the solar system. One good volcanic eruption dwarfs our entire contribution over the last century. So, sorry but I am not buying the whole "man caused global warming catastrophe" hoax.

It seems that winter in the Alps is not over and in places it looks more like the middle of winter.
