NPR: "Somebody at my office told me, 'We all owe Al Gore an apology,'" says Breigh Hardman, standing on a bridge over the Arkansas River in nearby Fort Smith...NPR asked nearly two dozen people in Oklahoma and Arkansas who were experiencing the ongoing flooding about their thoughts on climate change. All of them said they believed that the climate was changing, even if they didn't directly associate the raining and floods with it, or agree on the cause. (Six people said they believed God was driving the change.)
Study published in the Journal of Hydrology, Volume 552, September 2017, Pages 704-717. The study found: 'The number of significant trends was about the number expected due to chance alone.' 'Changes in the frequency of major floods are dominated by multidecadal variability.' 'The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded (Hartmann et al., 2013) that globally there is no clear and widespread evidence of changes in flood magnitude or frequency in observed flood records.' 'The results of this study, for North America and Europe, provide a firmer foundation and support the conclusion of the IPCC (Hartmann et al., 2013) that compelling evidence for increased flooding at a global scale is lacking.'
2018 NCA Federal Climate Report found: On flooding, the assessment accepts the IPCC’s finding, which “did not attribute changes in flooding to anthropogenic [human] influence nor report detectable changes in flooding magnitude, duration or frequency.”
Aussie Alan Jones: Taxpayers will fork out more than $320,000 for the Climate Week conference, where form US vice president Al Gore will “communicate the urgency of the climate crisis”.“It is not believable,” says Alan Jones, “that the Queensland government can be so awash with money as to bring this hypocrite Al Gore to Australia for a conference.“When so many important instruments of government are underfunded, when farmers can’t feed their cattle in Queensland, and $320,000 goes to waste on this shonk.”
Jo Nova: Fittingly, The Gore effect strikes again. Snow fell in Queensland. (The last time it fell was 2015.)
Q: Does that mean you applaud the spirit behind the Green New Deal, without necessarily approving its specifics?
Gore: "Absolutely. Absolutely, that’s right. I know you’ve been critical about it and others have as well. But I am strongly in favor of what's described as the Green New Deal. When you peel back the first layer and look at the specifics, sure: You're going to find some things that you disagree with, or I disagree with."
