It’s another day, and we get a new story about how dire the climate threat is and that it is unambiguous that humans are a significant cause.
What is rarely noted in these articles is actual facts that support the theory. I would love to see actual temperature data for each decade for the last 150 years, including where the measuring stations are located. It would be especially interesting to see rural data where cement and asphalt don’t inflate the temperature. It should also always be noted that a “Little Ice Age” ended in 1715 and that some warming would be normal.
Why don’t we see a list of storms, droughts, and floods from each decade to show the trend? Even if there is some sort of a trend, how would it be attributed to humans, since the climate has always changed through billions of years when humans and fossil fuels could have had no effect?
It would be good to see a sample of sea levels throughout the world for each year for the last 150 years. A sample of 100 spots throughout the world may give us a reasonable average for comparison. My guess is that they don’t take actual measurements.
Instead of facts, these articles always give us theoretical predictions. I would ask the reporters how many previous predictions of the last 30 or 100 years have been accurate. I can’t think of any. Why should we believe the new predictions?
We were told after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 that hurricanes would be more frequent and stronger than ever. Instead, we have had more than eleven years where hurricanes have been mild to nonexistent. Tornado activity has also been lower than normal, so why are we told that storms are getting more extreme?
We were told that the three-year drought in California was caused by humans, fossil fuels, and CO2, yet it ended with record snowfall and precipitation. Few reporters seem curious as to how it ended. The correct answer is that droughts always come and go. Humans do not cause them or cause them to stop.
