Combine the uncertainties of global climate change with the usual crazy Colorado springtime weather for these frightening future forecasts... Alpine Tornadoes: These fast-moving supercells strip the reservoir-replenishing snowcaps clean off of Colorado mountain peaks and dump them as deluges directly over the flood-prone Red River Valley of North Dakota. Below, snowcap smoke jumpers will be needed... Snow Wildfires: Snowfields containing ever-increasing amounts of radiation from nuclear fallout, microscopic oil-spill dispersants and toxic pesticides spontaneously combust under a thinning ozone layer. Below, a living hail... Superhail: The atmosphere, superheated by greenhouse gases and the heat from millions of air conditioners, will create updrafts that are long and strong enough to form hailstones the size of small asteroids.
