The inimitable Don Surber wryly observed the failure of coal billionaire/environmental hypocrite Tom Steyer to get very much for his money last Tuesday. He has been around long enough and is appropriately jaundiced enough to note:
Politics like any other aspect of life has its fads. Remember the Beatles haircuts? Gun control fell out of fashion. Socialists celebrated the Sandy Hook shootings only to discover that Americans wanted better enforcement of existing gun control, and better mental health treatment.
New research in Germany has found that tree growth has accelerated since 1870. Analysis suggests that this is due to a rise in temperature and longer growing seasons.
Forest stand growth dynamics in Central Europe have accelerated since 1870

OGDEN — The greatest snow on earth could be in danger, according to an environmental advocate and writer who spoke to students at Weber State University Tuesday about the effects climate change will have on snow and the ski industry. By the end of the century, some scientists predict Utah will no longer be a skiing destination, because global warming will prevent snow from falling and in turn will affect the ski industry.
