Wild weather is a welcome to the rest of our lives

Peter Sinclair, of Climate Denial Crock of the Week, looks at the recent record-smashing weather events in the United States.

New research put together by more than 400 scientists from across the world, published this week, finds that greenhouse gases from the burning of fossil fuels are increasing the chances of extreme weather events like heatwaves, droughts and floods happening.

Left sounding especially hollow and irresponsible in this video are the interspersed comments from Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson, who says the world can “adapt” to what he says is an “engineering problem”.

  1. All we see is yet another scare-mongering media frenzy by government owned media over a government funded report riddled with the usual scientist head count, rubber stamp peer review processes and yet another update on the corrupted temperature record (due to the heat island effect).

    Behind the masquerades it is to justify new taxes and to prop up the big banks with a new trillion dollar market to speculate on with financial derivates. The science trickery moves into economic trickery. As for the environment? Well Australia’s carbon tax will reduce the temperature by 0.0038 degrees by 2100. Believing that humans can change the climate by reducing emissions is mindless folly – adaption may be the only realistic option.

    The latest Climate Assessment Report clearly attributes extreme weather events to La Nina. Compared to La Nina, the impacts on our climate from CO2 pale into insignificance. And before you start, La Nina oscillations have been traced back to ancient times, long before industrial emissions begun.

    The IPCC has cried wolf just once too many times. For decades we have heard endlessly about IPCC models forecasting the next apocalypse – none of which have come close, not even their lowest forecast – why? because the scientific basis of the feedback that goes into the computer models is flawed – the failure is now incontrovertible – it didn’t happen – even as CO2 concentrations continue to skyrocket the planet has cooled for over a decade (based on the only legitimate temperature record, that of satellites). In normal science this means the theory is screwed up and tossed in the bin.

    The longer we delude ourselves by clinging to the “blame it all on carbon” theory, the longer it will take for us to understand the climate, and find real solutions.

  2. Robert, well said. James Lovelock has agreed that the ‘science’ of climate change has failed to deliver on predictions. The situation getting more ludicrous now that we have activists shifting from warming to changing weather patterns to unpredictable weather patterns to extreme weather events. They simply don’t know and the constant rearranging of the deckchairs has damaged public confidence.
