It’s no game

Well, this isn’t very good for “the narrative”, is it?

And, being commercially astute, some of the snow resorts in Australia have opened early, one of them has made it a free weekend for skiers and even those snowboarder scum.

Something’s not quite right here. After all, here’s a scientific, peer-reviewed prediction from 2005;

Modelling for 2020 and 2050 shows that the resort with the most remaining snow will be Perisher, in NSW, followed in order by Falls Creek, Mount Hotham, Thredbo and Mount Buller. The smaller resorts of Mount Buffalo, Mount Baw Baw and Lake Mountain become marginal for skiing at 2020, even in the most optimistic scenarios.

Awkwardly, 1 year from doom and Mount Buller has opened a week earlier than normal, which is a shame as some of us were expecting to go there for a camping and mountain bike holiday next weekend. Imagine our surprise to learn they’ve had a blizzard, despite the predictions of the taxpayer-funded CISRO.

But this is surely a one off, an anomaly, an outlier on the hockey stick of doom?

But wait, what happened last year?

Oh, they extended the season;

Bill’s Opinion

Climate change is both a religion and an industry.

As Mencken said;

The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it. Power is what all messiahs really seek: not the chance to serve. This is true even of the pious brethren who carry the gospel to foreign parts.

    1. There’s no such thing as bad weather, just poor clothing choices.

      Anyway, with a surname like that you are genetically evolved to cope with four seasons… all in the same day if my recollection of previous visits to Kaaskopland are any gauge.

      1. 🙂 Ekshully Ahm a Sow Theffrican. But I know about European weather. My Latin lecturer at uni (Hans van Stekelenberg) was Flemish. He said that a Cape winter (nonstop rain) was like summer in the Polders. Then I spent two months in the UK when it only rained twice, one for five weeks and once for three. I went to the movies one arvo and missed summer.

        1. Yes, I know you’re a Japie (did you enjoy Ben Stokes’ hands yesterday?), I was making the point that you had a cloggy surname.
