Climatologist Judith Curry: My questioning of climate change became inconvenient
Climatologist Judith Curry reacts to the Democrats’ climate fear on ‘Jesse Watters Primetime.’
Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry on the ‘climate crisis’: “It’s been characterized as a very simple issue: As if carbon dioxide emitted from fossil fuels is some sort of a control knob on the climate. Well, it just flat out isn’t.
Sure, humans are influencing the climate to some extent, but natural climate variability is far and away the dominant factor. And they’re seizing on extreme weather events as motivating the elimination of fossil fuels, which is fairly ludicrous because a warming climate…there’s no evidence that this is leading to worse extreme weather events. We’ve always had extreme weather. We’re currently having extreme weather, and we will have extreme weather in the future no matter what we do regarding fossil fuels. And, and so the urgency that is put forward that we have to deal with this issue with all these made-up targets 1.5 degrees centigrade, or whatever, is leading us to make hasty decisions that are bad.”
