This US summer is 'what global warming looks like'
WASHINGTON — If you want a glimpse of some of the worst of global warming, scientists suggest taking a look at U.S. weather in recent weeks. Horrendous wildfires. Oppressive heat waves. Devastating droughts. Flooding from giant deluges. And a powerful freak wind storm called a derecho.These are the kinds of extremes climate scientists have predicted will come with climate change, although it's far too early to say that is the cause. Nor will they say global warming is the reason 3,215 daily high temperature records were set in the month of June.
WEESA GONNA DIE!!!
Yes, there were no wildfires, or heat waves, or droughts before man invented machines. Life was idyllic, perfect, without a single bad weather-related issue. Pompeii? Never heard of it. Until the Industrial Revolution, temperatures were even, never rose sharply, and patterns were predictable and stable. It is 100% man's fault that we've had recent fluctuations - remember, 25 years is the scope of this study, and in a geologic sense that's barely an eyeblink.
This is the kind of junk science smart guys like Borepatch like to deride:
- But since at least 1988...
- So far this year...
- Since Jan. 1...
They're talking about events that have happened so recently as to be instantaneous in relation to the scale on which weather events occur. Changes in temperature - global, geologic shifts - don't happen overnight, or a in year, or over a century. Yet these "scientists" are extrapolating a year's worth of local weather variations to condemn humanity to death by global warming.They even agree that weather in Europe has been stable - so they're issuing blanket statements about this global crisis based on localized weather patterns.
So, by their own logic, since it has been colder than usual here in New England, obviously we are free from global warming, right?
That is all.
