AGW Today: Everybody Panic, Part Lots

I guess the alarmists have to get in all their talking points before winter sets in, especially as they attempt to link cold weather and snow storms to man caused global warming, er, climate change, er global climate disruption, otherwise known as “what the Earth has been doing for billions of years.” Though, that doesn’t roll off the tongue as well as the others

A recent report by a national environmental organization[1] claims that global warming will spawn more extreme weather events such as last March’s rains in New England and big snowstorms like the so-called “Snowmageddon” that paralyzed the mid-Atlantic region last winter.

“This spring’s flooding was just one example of how extreme weather causes big problems for the economy of Massachusetts and for our public safety,” said Emily Fischer, an energy associate with Environment Massachusetts, which produced the report and is a branch of Environment America.

Because the Earth has never had flooding before. Ever. I believe they made the word “flooding” up around 1980 to account for this new phenomena.

The Environment Massachusetts report contains no ground-breaking research of its own but combines the results of recent scientific studies on the effects of climate change and storm activity. The report includes, for example, predictions of fewer but more intense high-category hurricanes. The most dangerous, Category 4 and 5 hurricanes could double in number over the next century, the report says. It also forecasts more frequent heavy downpours and snowfalls, as well as more wildfires and intense heat waves.

OK. Perhaps I should have named this the Prozac Diaries instead of AGW Today. Really, as an environmentalist myself, I wish these groups would spend more time dealing with real environmental issues. Because they beclown themselves and damage the movement, especially when we get

And then we have

Fairbanks faces a roughly 11-degree Fahrenheit temperature increas[4]e by 2100 if moderate climate-change models are used, Boone said during a talk Wednesday.

If that happens, the interior no longer will be characterized by permafrost and boreal forests, he said.

Chicken Little is pleased. But,

Climate change falling off public radar, speakers say[5]

My goodness!

Climate change could benefit UK farmers[6]

Remember how it was warmer back during the Global Climate Optiumum, and the Brits were making excellent wines, much to the dismay of the French?

Let’s wrap up with some OMG, WE’RE DOOOOOOOOOOOOMED[7], shall we?

If we fail, I can imagine a thousand years from now a small fragment of humankind barely surviving the new planetary climate huddled round a fire in some remote northern latitude observing the night sky, subsisting perhaps as hunter-gatherers on a vastly different and biologically depleted planet listening to a tale vaguely recalled in ancestral memory by the local shaman.
