Here you go Dan, have at it. I was wrong I admit it, it was not 95% of scientists it is actually 97% but hey what do they know, they could have been cherry picked right? And the source NASA, what would you expect from a bunch of government rocket scientists? Cheers!

BTW I am not the one that coined that term, it was used by much of "Lame Stream" media following the reaction of many conservatives to the outcome of the last presidential election. I realize that was a long time ago for most of you and commiserate with your fading/selective memories.

Scott, I thought it was regular practice for ski areas to post their skier days for each season. In my mind that number was/is always padded to include not only locals and employees but also free/comped tickets and what ever else they can come up with to create a more impressive or consistent number similar to previous seasons.

YVMC is a non-profit as well and look at their rates for services versus the front range. All too often the non-profit status is nothing more than a tax dodge IMHO, resulting in more corporate welfare.

Wow surprised and grateful that in spite of your fondness of Fox you didn't support the opinion of the "Old out of touch/angry white guys". Thanks!

Answer to above; we are a nation of consumers and people like new things even if it is not in the budget we find all kinds of ways to justifying having that new pair of shoes, bike, park...___ (fill in the blank).

I would love to see what the city collects from Winter Sports Club for the use of taxpayers property. WSC is a for profit organization (as far as I know) that charges an awful lot for their services and yes I agree that they have plenty of overhead and bring so much to the heritage of our winter sports community. But are they paying their fare share? Very likely they are but I have never seen any numbers, can someone enlighten me?

So it's better to ignore/deny and do nothing to mitigate CO2 greenhouse gas emissions that 95% of the worlds scientists say are vastly contributing to our warming trends/climate change. Now that's a logic we can all live with, or not!

Never in my lifetime have the wishes and ignorance of the minority so imperiled and taken precedent over those of the majority.
