World's most eager skier?

(Norwegian, use Google translate or similar to get the English text)

Tom Stensaker (62) says this season has been one of the 'longest' he's ever had, 210 days skiing (3. November 2016 -> 31. May 2017), and 11 200 kilometers overall.

Normal daily trips is around 70km, and since he can't go any less than 10km per trip, the last trips of the season he does 500 times on a strip of 20m.

What a guy :finga:

Another season with more than 10 000 km for Tom. (still not over!) That's 50-60 km each and every day.

This year he passed a lifetime total of 320 000 km which equals the distance 8 times around the earth. He celebrated with a strawberry.

He says this winter was exceptional not seen since the 80's.

He likes the spring skiing for all the nature moments of flora and fauna coming out.

Its great to see this guy at it again this season!

The climate fraudsters are telling us that snow is a thing of the past. The Nordic ski industry has a massive campaign called "Save our Winters." However, the ski season is still open at a few New England resorts - we're talking about skiing in May on the east coast!

Modern climate experts believe solar activity does not influence the weather, and that the climate is controlled by a 0.0001 mole fraction increase in a harmless trace gas. Remember, according to the climate warmest its warmer everywhere except where you are located (this is how the scam works).

Dave, what do you believe is behind this climate change propaganda. Is it a cover-up for or distraction from something else? Why isn't the change in e.g. microwave radiation more of a concern? The natural background microwave radiation is circa 0.5 pW/m2 (0.000 000 000 000 5 W/m2). The man-made background radiation of today is in cities often between 100-1000 uW/m2 (0.000 1 - 0.001 W/m2). That is a change of astronomical proportions.

It's simple actually. What role does government play in controlling solar activity or ocean current cycles? The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) isn't even hiding the motivation as stated by its former co-chair, Ottmar Edenhofer “One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. Instead, climate change policy is about how we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth.”

I don't know, but it is rather scary to see a clear blue sky transform into a milky haze by air plane exhaustions. This has happened many times here.

How is that redistribution done through climate policy?

When most of us see a smoke stack emitting a cloud, we immediately think about all the dirty carbon being released into the environment. I was thinking this until I stared doing my know research on climate issues about 2-years ago. The reality is what we are seeing is just water vapor, carbon is completely invisible. Watch the first 2-mins of this video: https://realclimatescience.com/2018/04/ ... trol-knob/

Also, about how redistribution is done through climate policy, see this short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtaOj8nSopE

Yes, but the situation with the plane exhaustions is different since they do alter the weather of that day and likely in a longer run too.

That specific redistribution reason is very limited, I think. The vast majority of "wealth redistributors" that has invaded Sweden the latest 30 years is citing political or religious reasons.

I see your point Magnus and its terrible to watch in real time what is happening to Sweden. In many ways, I view the decline of SAAB automobile as very symbolic to what is happening in Sweden. Sweden is a proud country with a rich culture that is worth fighting for.

I am also an avid backcountry skier, but I mainly use skating gear because I like the control on the big hills that I like to ski. I use whatever technique is needed for the terrain but prefer skating where possible. Having previously skied in every month except August (June and July in Alaska), I don't bother to ski back and forth on a small patch of snow to extend the season unless the skiing is actually good. I could ski in my backyard right now but at this point I will let my boots dry out and go sand skiing when I crave it later in the year. I did manage to ski 531 hours in 178 days from October 25th to May 6th this season, taking a few recovery days off to prepare for races, a few downhill powder days, and a couple of snowbound days spent shoveling snow along the way.

That's impressive, but why do you prefer track skis over terrain skis? Better for skating?

Thanks, Dave, but we have a mighty and evil force against us, the same one that controls USA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ERmOpZrKtw

Yes, I like the combination of lightness, speed, and ability to skate whenever possible. The modern gear provides very good control on downhills and the stiffer skating bindings minimize heel movement when skiing in fresh snow. I also use lightweight classic gear when I know skating will not be possible. The limiting factor is deep powder conditions. That is when I ski packed snowmobile trails or groomed xc trails, or go alpine powder skiing riding a lift or using climbing skins.
