Letter: The weather patterns don’t lie
September 17, 2013
Recent extreme weather events such as heavy rains in the Boulder area and Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast confirm my observations on page 3 of "Weather to Be in Aspen — An Aspen Weather Guide" by Jim Markalunas published in 2010.
An observation of mine: "It seems as though the weather pendulum swings more extremely than in years of old. I note a pattern of extended wet and dry seasons. Storms are more violent — but less frequent. The weather appears to be more volatile than in past years. I attribute this phenomenon to the global warming effect which induces additional energy into the atmosphere."
We will continue to see greater extremes of weather unless we decrease carbon-monoxide emissions.
