After twenty years of relentless propaganda and headline after headline… truth is that 57% of people just don’t believe that climate experts know what they are talking about. ~JoNova
“Nobel prize-winning scientist David Karoly,” reported ABC News in 2010, “says Australia’s current extreme weather is evidence of climate change.” Pioneer coral reef explorer and marine biologist, Walter Starck responds, “to attribute these floods to global warming is only a rerun of a similar attempt with tropical cyclones after hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. Since then several years of below average storm activity plus statistical studies showing no recent trend of increase have left the warmists looking for a new alarm.”
You probably have heard of El Niño and La Niña, describing warming and cooling phases that occur in the Pacific Ocean and its overlying atmosphere in cycles, and are associated with flooding and drought conditions over the land. But, have you heard about, La Nada? We’ve learned over the years that the land-based temperature record is bogus because official temperature measuring stations are improperly located with the result that the temperature readings are corrupted with a warming bias due to the Urban Heat Island effect (UHI). Once we adjust the record to account for a UHI systemic warming bias due to faulty station siting, such as locating official thermometers next to buildings, air conditioning ducts, asphalt parking lots and at busy airports, the amount of global warming supposedly caused by human CO2 is, nada.
Facts are facts: whether it’s caused by natural changes in the North Atlantic circulation patterns or solar activity, there has been no global warming for a while now, going on 20 years. Rather than warming alarmists’ predictions that our children would never know snow, we may actually be headed towards, as many outside Western academia predict, decades of global cooling.
Climate change is complex and its impacts more so. We have limited knowledge of the consequences of the modest change that has occurred in the past. There is even more uncertainty about the effects of the rapid change expected in the future. ~Richard Tol (Bogus prophecies of doom will not fix the climate)
It is continuing to allow fears of global warming to take our attention off the real crisis at hand that may spell, D·O·O·M! Tol pointed out that the Greek’s meltdown during the Eurocrisis in 2014 resulted in a 20% drop in income. None of the drop in the income of the average Greek was the result of climate change. It is Leftist, Eurocommunist thinking and government policies that brings their economy to the brink.
Being a card-carrying global warming, climate change alarmist is simple and can be very lucrative too. Simply bide your time, let natural oscillations take their course, and then blame any bad weather on humanity’s CO2. For example, the bi-monthly Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO is associated with variations in mid-latitude tropical thunderstorm activity) may interact with an Arctic Oscillation (AO is characterized by a counter-clockwise Arctic wind pattern) and a North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO is described as a blocking of the jet stream over the North Atlantic), and combine with an El Niño-Southern Oscillation. ENSO currently is in the phase of a peaking El Niño and a likely outcome of all these weather activities is a torrential rain event somewhere in Florida. When that happens a Nobel prize-winning climate scientist probably will point and proclaim the flood is an example of extreme weather and evidence of climate change.
Fact is, as yo wise Moma might tell ya’
weather is like a box of chocolates.
You never know what you’re gonna get.
