    It's 'climate change', not 'global warming'.

    OK. Since you asked nicely. Anthropogenic global warming has raised ocean temperatures by about one degree and that has increased evaporation rates and that, coupled with the ability of warmer air to hold more water, has raised the water vapor levels in the atmosphere by about 4%. More water in the air results in greater rainfall and snowfall, as we have seen in recent years and as is evidenced by the increased flooding in many parts of America and the world. Washington state is one of the areas that is prone to receiving more moisture laden air off of the Pacific and it often gets cold air and storms moving down from the Gulf of Alaska. Combined with the La Nina conditions this year, that produced record snowfalls. The deeper the snow, the longer it takes to melt off. That doesn't mean that temperatures there are unusually low, as you rather idiotically presume.

    Record snow offers rare chance to bikini-ski on Crystal Mountain
    07/03/11
    (excerpts)

    Women skied wearing bikinis and men wore board shorts Saturday as Crystal Mountain opened for skiing in July for only the second time in its history, a spokeswoman said. ...and enjoy temperatures that reached the high 60s... “It was kind of a rare thing to be able to strip down and ski,” she said. “Hopefully, everybody wore plenty of sunscreen.”

    More than 600 inches of snow has fallen since Crystal opened Nov. 19, breaking the previous record of 598 inches. Set in 1999, that record season was the only other time the Crystal Mountain slopes were open in July – including July 4 that year as well, according to the resort’s records.

    Except that if the ice is melting, as you claim, the oceans would not be getting warmer at all would they? I suppose next you will claim that the oceans are warming except when they are cooling.

    You guys contradict yourselves at every turn. The oceans are warming, the ice is melting, the sky is falling.

    If that is true why didn't it occur back in the late 90s when the global temperatures were provably warmer? Or how about the year 2007 when Arctic sea ice was at it's lowest observed level in the modern era?
