Nationally prominent climate change skeptic Dr. John Christy believes his office floor at the University of Alabama in Huntsville was "targeted" by gunshots over the national March for Science weekend. "To me, it looks like the fourth floor was targeted," Christy said Tuesday. The pattern of the damage "does raise the possibility it was a little more than a coincidence," he said.
"The March for Science should not simply be another way for us to express our opinions. It should not be an effort to pressure scientists and voters to agree with us. The scientific method is the best way we have of engaging in factual disputes."
Paul Homewood: "It is absolutely clear that the number of strong tornadoes has declined since the 1970s. Alarmingly, however, this page has been 'disappeared', and the link now comes up with this:
Fortunately Wayback still has a copy of the original web page, and I also have it on file. It is blindingly apparent that NOAA found their original assessment far too inconvenient, something that should be kept out of the public domain at all cost."
Climate chauses wind speeds to decrease...Except when climate change causes wind speeds to increase...
Claim: Atmosphere expert Professor Paul Williams, of the University of Reading, told the Financial Times that winds have ‘generally weakened over land over the past few decades’. He said one explanation for plummeting wind speeds could be ‘human-related climate change’, that would see poles warming ‘faster than tropics in lower atmosphere’ areas. Prof Williams said: ‘This would have the effect of weakening the mid-latitude north-south temperature difference and consequently reducing the thermal wind at low altitudes.’
