    You can tell the people who don't really understand AGW theory, when they get all excited about snow storms. They don't seem to realize that warmer temps can actually lead to MORE snow in some places! Here's a clue. If temps go up from 20 F to 25 F, it's still going to snow and there will probably be more snow, because warmer air holds more moisture. So thanks for giving us the heads up on another piece of evidence that the globe IS warming. :thup:

    You can allways tell the faith based believers because according to them EVERYTHING is global warming related! :lol::lol::lol: So tell me this konrad...I will most certainly agree that warm air holds more water....but how does the warmth cause the temperature to drop to create snow? Also if the residence time of water vapor really is 10 days or less, how is it that the effect of warming can possibly last so long?

    The world would love to know how you work this magic.

    Hmmm, Dakotas were one of the states I was thinking of looking into for teaching. Maybe I should rethink.

    This morning at 6:15, it was 72F here. By 5 it was in low 50's, with those crazy winds. But, NO SNOW!

    AGW is the reason for all the weather.

    You'd have no trouble finding a job in the Fargo area with how fast it is growing. We have three universities, one new high school under construction, another set for construction, a new elementary school every couple years, low cost of living, and a metro area of 200k that has at least one of everything you would find in a larger city. But if cold and snow 5 months out of the year is not your thing, forget I said anything. :D

    Who said anything about a temperature drop? I was talking about a RISE. Don't you agree that regardless of whether it's 20 F or 25 F it's still going to snow? That sounds like HIGHER temps to me. I see no need to consider how "warmth" turns to cold, I'm talking COLD and LESS COLD. I don't see what residence time has to do with the matter, either. If a weather system picks up moisture in the Pacific, it would take less than ten days to cross the country, making the "residence time" moot.
