Tony Heller: 'How can droughts and floods become more likely when Australia's been almost continuously in a drought or flood since the 18th century? The likelihood of drought or flood in Australia has always been pretty close to 100 %, so how does that increase?'
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.”
60 Minutes presents 15-year old kid who says she ‘put her ankle in climate change’
"60 Minutes" producer Draggan Mihailovich defends kids climate claims: "It's not gobbledygook that they are spewing."
But then 60 Minutes features the kids spewing an ocean of climate gobbledygook!
Question to 60 Minutes producer: "Do the kids understand the science here?"
"60 Minutes" producer Draggan Mihailovich answers: "They understand the danger, that is for sure....There is real fear here. Jayden Foytlin, a 15-year-old from Rayne, Louisiana told me, you know 'when it rains at night, all I can think about is that storm in August of 2016.' (In Rayne Louisiana) As she puts it she woke up and set foot, put her ankle in climate change basically."
Jayden Foytlin 15-years old: "I was never expecting to have my house flooded. So to have that whole thing happen it really just felt like it was a dream or as if i was like just losing my mind or going like crazy. That is just something that shouldn't happen. You can't really deny that climate change has something to do with it...To the people that think that I'm brainwashed, I just usually say I have encountered climate change firsthand."
Morano: We’ve been told climate change leads to less snow AND that it leads to more snow. It causes more hurricanes and fewer hurricanes, longer bird migrations and also shorter bird migrations. Global warming causes more crime, but, get this, reducing crime causes more global warming. And if you disagree with any part of this of scenario…you might just be a “climate denier”— and belong in jail yourself!
Today…A sort of “climate astrology” has taken over. Many climate claims have descended into the realm of the predictions of Nostradamus or the Mayan calendar. There is no way anyone can falsify the global warming theory now because any weather event that happens “proves” their case.
Bjorn Lomborg: 'Sadly, accurate science doesn’t make for good television; predicting the end of times does.'
But even this report revealed: “Drought statistics over the entire contiguous US have declined,” the report finds, reminding us that “the Dust Bowl era of the 1930s remains the benchmark drought and extreme heat event.”
Report also 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.”
CNN’s headline, screaming that “climate change will shrink [US] economy” by 10 percent, a figure also repeated on The New York Times front page. Actually, the UN’s climate scenarios envision US GDP per capita will more than triple by the end of this century, so this 10 percent reduction would come from an economy 300 percent larger than it is today....So, even a 5 percent reduction in the size of the American economy only follows from picking unlikely worst-case scenarios.
The well-reported idea that warming will shrink the economy by 10 percent disregards huge economic growth, assumes twice the damages of the worst-case temperatures the report itself expects and even then only finds such high costs stemming almost exclusively from easily preventable heat deaths.
Conjecturing that the temperature-mortality relationship in the US would remain constant over a century is ludicrous.
Real-world observations contradict Mann’s claims: Dr. Mann claims that “it’s not rocket science” that global warming has led to “unprecedented” extremes in droughts (too little precipitation) and floods (too much precipitation). He insists that we must take “concerted action” to mitigate our use of fossil fuels so as to avert these “disastrous” and “devastating” extreme weather consequences. Mann classifies those who disagree with him about the link between AGW and these extreme weather events as “climate deniers”.
