Are You Angry? Kids Getting Bad Grades? It’s Due To Climate Change Or Something

The Cult of Climastrology is up to its normal schtick

Blame Global Warming for Your Bad Attitude
Climate change is making us angry. It may also cause more assaults, murders, and even poor math grades for your kids.

It doesn’t take a PhD to see that climate affects our lives. Anyone who lives far enough from the equator can tell just by opening the closet.

It takes a lot of scientists, however, to reveal how climate affects us—particularly as our climate changes. Sure, there’s prolonged heat and drought in some places, persistent floods and storms in others—all the ways we’ve learned to see global warming (though some still reject the science). But an exhaustive review of almost 200 different studies reveals not only the extent of those predictable changes but also how we humans are reacting to climatic wallops. The results are troubling. 


Richard Moss, senior scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Joint Global Change Research Institute, calls the study essential to making clear the everyday price of climate change. Moss, who led the climate division of the U.S. Global Change Research Program and contributes to the National Climate Assessment, said “it’s always been a challenge in some of our national conversations.”

Perhaps if Warmists stopped having national conversations and started practicing what they preach, people might believe them enough to care.

Thinkers at least as old as Aristotle asked how climates shape societies, the authors of the new analysis note. The trouble with answering that question in a thorough manner is that scientists would have to measure pretty much everything all the time. This new super study, published Thursday in the journal Science, shows that scientists have become extremely clever at drawing conclusions by combining data they have with novel statistical approaches.

In other words, they’ve become extremely clever at making sh*t up to go with their preconceived notions. The blame a reduction in corn production (btw, corn is at an all time high) on Hotcoldwetdry. They blame a reduction in births on it. They say more storms, in the future, of course, will lead to more infant mortality. That people secretly hate heat

It’s easy to imagine that warmer weather might make people happier. After all, summer brings beaches and bikes, and hiking and barbecues.

That may not be the case, according to a 2014 paper [pdf] that analyzed a billion Twitter posts and scored them across a happiness index. Above 70 degrees Fahrenheit or so, the mood of Twitter users changed, evidenced in part by an uptick in profanity. The difference in user happiness scores during 60F to 70F weather and 80F to 90F weather was similar to the difference in people’s moods on Sundays vs. Mondays.

So, obviously, they blame this all on anthropogenic climate change. The same with violence, which tends to increase when it gets warmer. Because there can’t be any other reason than someone driving a fossil fueled vehicle. And blame a decline in math scores as it gets warmer. These people are nuts.
