Climate Ambulance Chasing

  • Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Alarmism

With 49 of 50 states in the U.S.A. covered by snow, climate alarmists have been quick to blame the extreme Northern Hemisphere winter on man-made global warming. Sounds like the biggest oxymoron in history and probably is.

Worse still, the eco-fearmongers remain totally oblivious, or conveniently unaware as to what the climate experts assured us that a warming climate would bring – milder winter temperatures and less snow.

Milder winter temperatures will decrease heavy snowstorms

Snowfalls Are Now Just A Thing Of The Past :

20 March 2000

According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.

“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.

Is global warming climate change causing the latest outbreak of extreme weather? Roy Spencer explains in simple science how humanity’s minuscule role in changing the rate of flow of energy imbalances could not yield any discernible effect on weather and that a ‘warming’ planet would actually decrease likelihood and intensity …

“The idea that any of the weather we are seeing is in any significant way due to humanity’s greenhouse gas emissions verges on irrationality.” - Roy Spencer

How much weather is being caused by climate change? Maybe 1 part in 1,000.

February 14th, 2014 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

In another silly pseudo-science rambling, the President’s science advisor, John Holdren, has recently stated, “Weather practically everywhere is being caused by climate change.”

Drought in California. Record snows in the East. It’s tempting for many to blame it all on our use of fossil fuels.

 

What Causes Weather?
Let’s start with the basics. Weather is caused by energy imbalances, primarily (1) between the solar heated surface of the Earth and the atmosphere above it, and (2) between different geographic regions (e.g. the tropics vs. high latitudes; the warm oceans versus cold continents in winter).
