Question Will Global Warming be the end of snowblowerforum.com?

With all the media and political hype on this topic, are our days numbered as members of this forum? I just bought a brand new Toro and wonder if a new boat may have been a more sensible (long term) purchase? What say you?

Toro Power Maxģ 826 OAE (37799) purchased from Authorized dealer (Agway) Nov. 2019
Early 70's Yard-Man Snowbird model 7040-1. I have 3 of them (2 fully functional and 1 for parts)

There are those that want to Chicken Little and declare "The Sky is Falling". We have had light winters and we've had heavy. Don't declare snow is gone till it's gone, and I don't expect that in our lifetime.

Amazon is testing a drone snow blower service using lasers as we speak. There's a smaller one for sidewalks and larger for driveways. Someday they may be clearing roads without the need for plows.

Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.

IMO it's not as much global warming as climate change. In my area, it feels like average temps are cooler than usual year-round, yet to the north it's warmer. As if the cold shifted somehow. I believe the biggest problem will be water level rising due to all the snow in the north not being "replaced" as quickly as it melts.

The seasons also seems to have shifted a bit, usually starting and ending about a month late.

Media & political hype is just that, no one claiming anything climate related can prove that they are correct. Weather & climate have always been an ever changing thing and they will continue to be so.
Nothing but time will prove who is right and who is wrong.

Laugh and joke all you want, but climate change is real. The polar ice caps and glaciers are melting at an alarming rate. It may not affect our generation, but we have to be thinking of future generations. It's no joke!

Yup, as I said above. It's been changing for thousands of years, before recorded time even, nothing we do can stop the climate from doing what it does naturally, nor should we try to stop it.
