E&E News: Former Vice President Al Gore might have reached the Oval Office if Florida's weather had been just a bit warmer on Election Day in 2000, according to a study published this week. Nearly six decades of data show voter turnout slightly rose on warmer election days, and voters were marginally more inclined to back the party already holding the White House when temperatures were higher, according to a paper published in the open-access journal Frontiers in Psychology..."Based on our model, an increase of only 1 degree Celsius ... may have made Al Gore the 43rd United States President instead of George W. Bush, as Gore would have won in Florida," researchers said.
Study: 'The sea levels have not followed the carbon dioxide emission over the past 120 years. Hence, it is increasingly unrealistic to claim that the sea levels are driven by the anthropogenic carbon dioxide emission.'
If the future is all but certain, filled with gloom and doom about rising temperatures and flooded cities, then why keep harping on it? If destruction of Planet Earth is a fait accompli, as these scientists believe, then stop with the complaints and virtue signaling as it won’t matter. Unless, of course, the fatalism is just the latest act in the global warming melodrama, another tactic to guilt Americans into relinquishing money and power to some bureaucrats to redistribute according to their whims.
"One of the issues here, when people see maps like that, you know, weathermen can't even tell what the weather is going to be later today," Cooper began.
Gore replied: "Yea."
"You trust your local weather -- no offense to local weathermen, but oftentimes, you know, you're told the weekend it's going to be raining and it's a sunny weekend," he added. "Why should people believe projections of what Florida is going to look like so far in the future?"
Gore offered a bit of a correction, saying that weather forecasting on a day-by-day basis is very different from climate large-scale climate science.
The weight of evidence suggests global warming may, on net, end up saving lives through reducing the number and severity of cold spells, according to scientists. “Based upon real-world data, it is obvious that global warming is going to directly prevent a large number of deaths,” Cato Institute scientists Patrick Michaels and Craig Idso wrote in a blog post Thursday analyzing weather mortality data. “The truth be told, as shown by real-world numbers, humanity has much more to gain in terms of physical health from rising, as opposed to falling, temperatures,” they wrote.
