The BBC inevitably made a lot of propaganda out of the latest US National Climate Assessment report, which I have already shot holes in.
But below is the report the climate scientists did not want to publish:
- Summer heatwaves are much less intense than they used to be. Meanwhile, cold spells are also much less common.
- Bitterly cold winters are a thing of the past.
- Rain is much more plentiful and droughts are much less common
- There has been a marked reduction in recent years in the number of hurricanes hitting the US, particularly major ones.
- The frequency of strong tornadoes has also declined significantly in the US.
- Sea levels continue to rise very slowly, and at a similar rate to the mid 20thC.
The US has unquestionably been experiencing a remarkably benign period of weather in recent decades.
Extremes of weather are now much less severe and less common than on many occasions in the last century or so.
Of course, the U.S. Global Change Research Program, who put together this report, NOAA, who are the lead agency, and the assortment of climate scientists who wrote it never intended the public to see the real facts. Those would have been far too inconvenient to their agenda.
And even if they had done, I doubt whether the BBC would have reported it!
