Vast stretches of Colorado are bracing for the biggest late-may snowstorm on record and record cold temperatures; seeing more than 3.4 inches of snow and moving upwards towards a previous high set back in 1975.
“As of 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Denver had officially received 3.4 inches of snow. That’s the most snow measured this late in the season since May 29, 1975 when 5.6 inches hit the city,” reports CBS Denver.
“In addition to the snow, Denver tied the record low temperature for May 21 when the official thermometer for the city dropped to 31 degrees Tuesday morning. It was previously 31 degrees on this date in 2001 when 1 inch of snow fell,” adds the website.
This was the scene east of the Eisenhower/Johnson tunnels on I-70 this afternoon as snow caused multiple cars to crash.

The sudden deep freeze is similar to another major snowstorm that slammed the Midwest in April.
“A blizzard my friends, in April, it’s happening across portions of South Dakota up towards Nebraska and then into Wisconsin,” said Fox News Senior Meteorologist. “We could see over a foot of snow and windy conditions and the potential for flooding ahead of this, some ice as well.”
The storm comes on the heels of massive flooding across parts of Nebraska and beyond and could contribute to ongoing reconstruction efforts in the region.
AL GORE: Fight Against Global Warming Same as ‘CIVIL WAR,’ Will Cause ‘End of Civilization’
Anti-Trump crusader and former Vice President Al Gore issued a dire warning against the perils of climate change this week; suggesting global warming was the same as the American “Civil War” and can bring about the “end of civilization.”
“What is going on in the public square right now is more important than any time since the Civil War,” Gore said. “We are facing an ecological crisis that can bring about the end of civilization.”

“Atlanta is emerging as a leader among cities,” Gore told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I am extremely impressed with the leadership of Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and the work that she is doing in the environmental space.”

BRAIN FREEZE: Al Gore Says Climate Change Cooling... THEN WARMING the Earth
Former Vice President and climate-change crusader Al Gore warned social media of another “ominous” heat record set in Oman over the weekend, just months after claiming global warming was -in fact- cooling the planet.
Gore posted the dire prediction on Twitter Saturday, saying “another ominous record” was smashed when the “overnight Low” in Oman reached a staggering 108.7 degrees.
“Another ominous record has been set. The city of Quriyat, Oman, hit an overnight LOW of 108.7 degrees on Tuesday – likely the highest minimum daily temp recorded on Earth,” Gore writes.

The former Vice President was touting another aspect of climate change just last winter, when he said the global crisis was creating record low temperatures throughout the United States.
“It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis,” he tweeted.
