Right!

NYT:

WASHINGTON — The average temperature in the United States has risen rapidly and drastically since 1980, and recent decades have been the warmest of the past 1,500 years, according to a sweeping federal climate change report awaiting approval by the Trump administration.

The draft report by scientists from 13 federal agencies concludes that Americans are feeling the effects of climate change right now. It directly contradicts claims by President Trump and members of his cabinet who say that the human contribution to climate change is uncertain, and that the ability to predict the effects is limited.

“Evidence for a changing climate abounds, from the top of the atmosphere to the depths of the oceans,” a draft of the report states. It was uploaded to a nonprofit internet digital library in January but received little attention until it was published by The New York Times.

Is that so? How very, very odd.

All over America, ordinary people think that the weather varies dramatically by region, that we’ve all seen warmer summmers years ago than any recently, and that the weather in recent years has been different from year to year but in no way strikingly unusual.

I guess you have to be a Climate Scientist, a New York Times editor, or a community of fashion member of the Establishment to be equipped with the kinds of privileged insights and hyper-sensitive sensory organs that can detect those effects of climate change, along with extraordinary educational training enabling you to predict dramatic weather effects far off in the misty future. The rest of us, even the ordinary people meteorologists, can only imperfectly predict the weather a week or two in advance.

Myself, I guess I must have been not paying attention at Yale, because I find myself completely at a loss when I attempt to sit down and try to define exactly at what point we find ourselves today along the Interglacial Cycle. I must have slept in the morning when they explained what exactly causes Glaciation and the whole cycle of earth’s warming and cooling and how you can tell just where on the cycle we should be and exactly what proper normal climate conditions would be like.

Isn’t it wonderful that there are all these people so much smarter than the rest of us, who know all these things, and who are able to define precisely what the earth’s normal climate would look like and who can measure accurately the negative impact of mankind’s pernicious productive activities and, on top of all that, predict for us all their terrible, terrible consequences?

Me, I’m a bit uncertain at what point later this afternoon a thunderstorm is likely to arrive, and I’m as likely as not to get rained on when I go out to pick up the mail.

I have always been impressed by those who can pick up a random number table and spot “non-random” sequences.

If you stare at anything long enough, you will see pattern in it — and it’s overwhelmingly likely that if you were looking for some specific pattern, that’s the one you will see.

So much for our modern-day astrologers of “climate change.”

No doubt Euope’s recent heat wave is proof of AGW. But the fact that I was wearing a leather jacket in the evenings last week here in the midwest is merely anecdotal.

The mini-ice age ended around 1850. Just returning to normal would require that average temperatures rise. What is very interesting and intentionally ignored or denied (deniers!) by the warmists is that in the 1930’s North America had extremely warm average temperatures that have never been duplicated in spite of the warmist rhetoric. This was followed by a surprisingly cold period in the 40’s and 50’s. Again just returning to normal temperatures would require that average temperatures rise. Both of these events are facts, well documented facts that must be ignored or “adjusted” in order to promulgate AGW.

The truth is there for all to see and it is the 97% of scientists pushing the AGW theory who are the real deniers.

It is only weather and it’s only the 10th of August but day after day the highs are in the mid-80s or even the high 70s.

No 90 degree days in August in the Mid Atlantic states.
