The above image by the Sacramento Bee is very telling: the California Sierras haven’t received its normal seasonal snowfall so far this winter.
As of 3 January 2012, (of normal):
From what I’ve heard from resort operators near Lake Tahoe, they are hurting.
Below are two images I took from a run at North Star Resort in Lake Tahoe. And yes, that is grass you see in the distance. And no, those are not snow-covered trees. And no, that is not snow powder.

When Richard Muller launched the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) project, he sought to re-analyze climate change data in order to prove that something in the data was incorrect or inaccurate.
Muller bluntly concludes after his publishing his series of studies: “Global warming is real.”
Of course, none of his studies have been peer-reviewed yet, so there is still debate left to be had. But again, here is another study that validates the underlying science and data (see image above) behind all of the research and all of the findings that global warming does exist.

Above are two photos from last Saturday’s event at Occupy Sacramento in Cesar Chavez Park, Sacramento (15 October 2011).
It is worth noting the Occupy Movement highlights the importance of a city to have plenty of good public space, such as a local park.
As an aside, there were apparently 600 protesters in Cesar Chavez Park that day.
