May 2007:Colorado Permanent Drought Update
Posted on May 25, 2014 by stevengoddard
Leading government and academic experts have warned that Colorado is having a permanent drought, due to an increase of 0.0001 mole fraction CO2 over the past century. These experts tell us that global warming has wrecked Colorado skiing and has made spring snow cover disappear.

Published in the April 9 issue of Science, “Model Projections of an Imminent Transition to a More Arid Climate in Southwestern North America” predicts that climate change will permanently alter the landscape of the Southwest so severely that conditions reminiscent of the Dust Bowl days of the 1930s could become the norm within a few decades.
“Our study suggests a perpetual arid condition over the American Southwest,” says Jian Lu, a postdoctoral researcher in ASP/CGD who is an author of the study.
oops. guess that permanent drought wasn't so permanent.
