Pielke Sr.: 'From under reviewed paper to NOAA PR to USA Today. A dismaying example of manipulation of science for political reasons.'
Climate Depot's Marc Morano on new NOAA study: "No matter how hard federally funded climate activist scientists at NOAA try to bend and twist models and data to make it appear the invisible hand of 'global warming' has a role in almost every weather event, the facts refute their claims."
Morano: "Studies show that rainfalls used to be longer and worse. Ironically, heavy rains used to be caused by 'global cooling' in the 1970s. NOAA's overuse of climate models to claim such nonsense should be audited. The scientists know better. But it appears a one day flashy headline on 'record' rains based on dubious models that contradict data, seems to be too enticing for them to pass up."
Meteorologist: The DNC climate video introduced by Sigourney Weaver and from James Cameron was 'recycled footage from two years ago'
'The only problem with that segment is the drought in west Texas broke long ago. Currently, no part of Texas is experiencing drought conditions.'
'Apparently, the climate has been so benign that they couldn't find new more disasters to film since tornadoes are way down, there have been zero major hurricanes in the U.S. and the drought in West Texas ended. The same old footage of Hurricane Sandy has gotten tiresome.'
'The DNC movie repeated the same old lie that the rise in sea level the last 100 years is "largely due to climate change" when the rate of sea level rise hasn't changed since the end of the Little Ice Age.'
Dr. Christy: 'When you look at the United States record of extreme high temperatures you do not see an upward trend at all. In fact, it's slightly downward. That does fly in the face of climate model projections.'
