Climatologist: ‘There is no relationship whatsoever between global-warming-related U.S. temperature & drought’ — ‘The country is getting wetter’
Dr. Pat Michaels: 'Hansen and Obama have it exactly wrong. Suppose we look at the U.S. temperature variation that is not related to global warming and plot it against the PDSI. Voilà! The relationship is highly significant, at the .0001 level. In other words, anything but global warming is what drives U.S. drought'
‘When it comes to dreaded droughts, President Obama could do a lot for his climate credibility by listening to what Jim Hansen says — and proclaiming exactly the opposite.’
