Media and scientists hyping temperature changes year-to-year so small as to be within the margin of error.
Book Excerpt - The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change:
Retired MIT climate scientist Richard Lindzen has ridiculed “hottest year” claims. “The uncertainty here is tenths of a degree. When someone points to this and says this is the warmest temperature on record, what are they talking about? It’s just nonsense. This is a very tiny change period,” Lindzen said.
“If you can adjust temperatures to 2/10ths of a degree, it means it wasn’t certain to 2/10ths of a degree.” Lindzen pointed out, “We’re talking about less than a tenth of degree with an uncertainty of about a quarter of a degree. Moreover, such small fluctuations—even if real—don’t change the fact that the trend for the past 20 years has been much less than models have predicted.”
CNN's John King: 'Every leader, whatever his party should be talking about climate change. You can have a debate about what to do about it. But that the President of the United States, at this moment in the world, did not mention climate change in even a sentence is, just frankly, a disgrace- any president, Democrat or Republican.'
'Democrats believe that animates their coalition, they believe it helps them, they believe, especially on the issue of climate change, especially on the issue of voting rights, it helps them to talk about things that the president won’t talk about.'
Climate Depot's Marc Morano's Response: CNN's John King said, 'Every leader, whatever his party should be talking about climate change'.
Morano: "I agree! President Trump should have repudiated the silly and activist written federal National Climate Assessment, he should have appointed Princeton scientist Dr. Will Happer as science czar who could have re-framed and debunked the climate change debate and he could have defunded the climate establishment. The Trump administration has an opportunity to expose the con of the man-made global warming premise and claims, but alas, instead there is no official government push-back on activist and media 'climate change' claims."
