Ever since the hoax that mankind has been destroying the earth with all our capitalism and our good livelihoods began, the Left has been trying to back up the farce with some evidence to prove their claims. And while they often TRY to cite evidence, all the evidence they show either is a prediction of what will happen in the next ten to fifty to one hundred years (with data made by men, of course) or the evidence points to actual weather patterns of hot and cold records, but do not tell the whole story surrounding them.
The latter is what AP reporter Seth Borenstein tried recently.
He wrote: “The AP looked at 424 weather stations throughout the Lower 48 states that had consistent temperature records since 1920 and counted how many times daily hot temperature records were tied or broken and how many daily cold records were set. In a stable climate, the numbers should be roughly equal. Since 1999, the ratio has been two warm records set or broken for every cold one. In 16 of the last 20 years, there have been more daily high-temperature records than low.”
Borenstein even cited some climate scientists: “The AP shared the data analysis with several climate and data scientists, who all said the conclusion was correct, consistent with scientific peer-reviewed literature and showed a clear sign of human-caused climate change. They pointed out that trends over decades are more robust than over single years.”
Finally, he concluded by saying: “The analysis stopped with data through 2018. However, the first two months of 2019 are showing twice as many cold records than hot ones.”
Gee, I wonder why, in the middle of winter, there appear to be more cold temperatures than hot ones.
Jokes aside, the climate scientists that Seth spoke with do not speak for ALL climate scientists.
Climatologist John Christy told The Daily Signal: “The occurrence of both record highs and record lows is declining. Record-low events are simply declining more rapidly than record highs. The drop in record lows is associated with development around the weather stations, which causes low temperatures to increase more than highs for a variety of reasons.”
He continued: “The AP… is spinning the story by only noting that record lows are fewer than highs now – but the real story is that in the U.S., both extremes are falling. This is consistent with the decline in number of days greater than 100 [degrees] Farenheit… The differential decline in record temps is inconsistent with [greenhouse gas] theory, which predicts an increase in record highs and higher TMax in general.”
According to the Daily Signal: “Most climate change activists cite the greenhouse gas theory – that man-made gases are causing changes to the Earth’s temperature. Christy noted that this theory predicts an increase in frequency of record-breaking temperatures. Yet the exact opposite is happening in the U.S. – the frequency of those temps is declining.”
Christy notes that the reason for this is likely “urbanization and natural variability.”
Christy says: “I’ve actually done this same analysis for the 682 [U.S. Historical Climatology Network] stations with at least 105 years of record since 1895. It is clear that the occurrence of both record high and record lows has declined since 1895, thanks to many records set from the 1920s to 1954.”
In other words, the greenhouse gas theory is wrong, plain and simple. It predicts that there will be more and more record-breaking temperatures, but the reality of the situation is that there has been a decent decline in the last 100 years.
Climatologist Roger Pielke Sr. also weighed in on the AP’s findings: “Without assessing the role of increased urbanization and other land-use changes… changes in atmospheric aerosols overhead, microclimate around observing site, changes in heights of observations, and concurrent trends in surface air humidity, it is not robust to attribute any changes in extreme temperatures to just human-added atmospheric CO2.”
In English, he’s saying that there are a lot of variables included in the calculating of the changing climate to simply attribute an overall change to “HUMANS ARE KILLING THE PLANET” paranoia.
Now, this is far from the first time this Seth Borenstein fellow has tried to pass off bogus or context-less data as proof of man-made climate change. However, this goes to show just how little the Left actually has in their efforts to prove something that is not there.
Unfortunately, despite how honest-to-God ridiculous this climate change hysteria is, around 20% of Americans blame global warming for this past cold winter, according to Gallup. I’m not joking.
43% of Americans surveyed “said temperatures where they live were colder than normal, with 19 percent blaming global warming for colder weather,” reported the Daily Caller.
I don’t know how often I have to point out the obvious ridiculousness of blaming global WARMING for colder temperatures.
But yet, the Left’s push to make everyone dependable morons is working well enough for them. I mean, they already have scared children half to death with talks about them not having a future all in an effort to steal away power and freedom from the American people.
I often say that it takes far more faith to believe in climate change than it does God. And since I talked about God and science yesterday, it makes sense to bring this up here: we see evidence of God’s existence EVERYWHERE. However, you can’t even come anywhere close to saying the same of climate change. All the evidence the Left protrudes, as I said earlier, is either a prediction of future temperatures (man-made data, in other words) and the noting of the fact that there are, indeed, record-highs and lows in temperatures, but ignoring completely the fact that such occurrences have been declining in the last century.
The matter of fact is this: as God is the one who created everything, including planet Earth, He is the one that is in control of what happens to it. If He decides that it will warm up heavily, it will warm up heavily. If He decides it will severely cool down, it will severely cool down.
For the fact that God is sovereign enough to verbally ordain light to exist and the entire universe to be created, I find it odd that so many think He is somehow unable to control the climate and that humanity has wrestled such control away from Him.
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face if the waters. And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.”
