Climate Rally Postponed Due To Cold Weather!

A rally in Colorado Springs designed to warn people of the effects of climate change and global warming was postponed this weekend after a snowstorm made it too risky to proceed.

The event, organized by local environmentalist group 350 Colorado Springs, was also a protest against the Trump administration’s policies on climate change.

Meanwhile, another march in Denver went ahead despite a spring snowstorm, as protesters held signs outside Denver City Hall and powered loudspeakers using stationary bikes.

    But don.t you see, they will blame the snow on climate change!
    Just another example of “global weirding”.

    When politics highjacks science people do silly things.

    Environmentalist Group 350…? These are the deep thinkers who insist that we remove 50 ppm of CO2 and hide it (rebury it) safely somewhere. 100 gigatons of CO2. And that will keep bad weather away?? If they are running the asylum they may need to enlarge it? It will be cheaper by far.

      Yes, quite so. But irony is completely lost on Americans of a lefty persuasion I think.

    Colorado Temperature Records

    Hottest temperature ever recorded: 114 F, Las Animas, southeeastern Colorado, 6/23/2012

    Coldest temperature ever recorded: -61 F, Maybell, northwestern Colorado, 2/1/1985

    Hottest location ranked by highest average annual temperature: Las Animas, southeastern Colorado, 54.0 F

    Coldest location ranked by lowest average annual temperature: Crested Butte, west-central Colorado, 33.0 F

    During January 1948, Colorado’s high temperature reached a record high of 73 degrees, and the low temperature plummeted to a record low of -29 degrees. This produced the greatest state monthly temperature range on record of 102 degrees.

    From August 1985 through June 1986, Taylor Park experienced a state record 310 consecutive days with the temperature at or below 32 degrees

    From June 9 through June 26, 2012, Denver set 8 new daily high temperature records and the month ended up being the hottest June in Denver history.

    From June 22 through June 27, 2012, Pueblo recorded 6 consecutive 105 + days , a new all-time record for the city

    It is not uncommon for temperatures to differ by 10 to 15° F within a 50 mile radius. Elevation is the main reason for this observed difference. The effect of elevation on temperature is what makes it difficult to summarize Colorado climate. In the winter, much of the State below 5,000 feet has maximum temperatures of 40 to 48° F. Above 5,000 feet, a cooling with altitude is noticed. The average maximum mean temperatures for the higher elevations of Colorado range from 28 to 40° F throughout the winter. The mean maximum temperature for January at stations at 5,000 feet elevation is about 40° F, while stations at elevations of 7,000 feet have temperatures near 32° F, and stations at elevations of 8,000 feet have temperatures around 25 F

    Temperatures appear to have always varied a lot in Colorado but it was colder May 1st this year than on the same day in 2000, 1979, or 1948 according to
