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.
A new paper from the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) reveals that there has been no increase in global hurricane activity, despite frequent claims that global warming is making hurricanes more of a problem. As the report’s author, Paul Homewood, explains: “The theory is that rising sea-surface temperatures should make hurricanes more frequent or more intense or both. But observational data shows that there is no empirical evidence to support the theory.” This is because most records of hurricane activity show no long-term increases, either in total numbers of hurricanes or of the most intense ones.
Climatologist Dr.Roy Spencer on Allstate's ad hyping 'once in 500-year storm' frequencies: 'I consider this false advertising because Allstate knows better, and is purposely misleading the public to make more money...Allstate knows better (the insurance business deals with probability and statistics) and they knew this was a lie when they put the ad together.'
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”.
