'Katharine Hayhoe has been at it again. In the documentary “Years of Living Dangerously”, she tries to persuade viewers that the Texas drought of 2011 was brought about by rising levels of CO2. Only one slight problem, Katharine, droughts have occurred regularly in the past in Texas, and sometimes more severely. In particular, the drought years of the 1950’s were both longer lasting , and more severe than the recent drought, as NOAA’s drought index shows.'
'The tipping point for Farley (Hayhoe's husband)? When the two went to the NASA website, downloaded global temperature data, and plotted it on their own computer. “It was clearly going up,” Hayhoe said, so “he had to decide, was NASA, the organization that put people on the moon, involved in some worldwide massive hoax or were they telling the truth?”
Lesley Stah: 'All these floods we've heard about – much more disastrous than they have been in our lifetime. That's because the ice is melting.'
NYT' Tom Friedman: 'Young Arabs will tell you is, 'Hey, we've tried everything. We tried nationalism, socialism, Communism, Islamism, capitalism, liberalism, and nothing worked.' And I always tell them there's actually one 'ism you haven't tried, and that's environmentalism. And that's actually not a joke.'
