Bummer: NOAA Demolishes Warmist Meme Of Anthropogenic Extreme Weather

Warmists love to blame every single weather occurrence, big or small, on “climate change”. To be clear, when they say “climate change”, they’re referring to the notion that all weather changes and a slight (1.4F) increase in global temperatures in 160 years are caused mostly/solely by Mankind. As for 2013, NOAA says “nope. You guys are nuts”

(Forbes) Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have demolished claims by global warming activists that global warming caused or worsened many extreme weather events last year.

According to NOAA’s new publication, Explaining Extremes of 2013 from a Climate Perspective, there is no discernible connection between global warming and 2013 extreme weather events such as the California drought, Colorado floods, the UK’s exceptionally cold spring, a South Dakota blizzard, Central Europe floods, a northwestern Europe cyclone, and exceptional snowfall in Europe’s Pyrenees Mountains.

The California drought provides a good example of global warming activists making false and irresponsible claims regarding global warming to deliberately mislead people who aren’t familiar with scientific studies and evidence. The liberal Center for American Progress and its media allies such as the Washington Post, San Jose Mercury News, Associated Press, and others have all published stories claiming global warming caused or worsened the ongoing California drought. Scientists, however, say just the opposite. “[F]or the California drought, which was investigated by three teams from the United States, human factors were found not to have influenced the lack of rainfall,” NOAA reported in an accompanying press release.

The report further goes on to explain that cold spring in the UK of 2013 had nothing to do with “climate change”. Remember, Warmists now like to blame cold weather on “climate change”, you know, because Someone Else drove fossil fueled vehicles.

And the Colorado floods in September 2013? Nope, no human fingerprint.

Adding additional emphasis to the NOAA publication’s findings, scientists reported in the peer-reviewed Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that natural factors such as ocean current cycles and varying wind patterns caused most of the warming along the U.S. West Coast since 1900.

One of the many problems with the Cult Of Hotcoldwetdry is that they’ve over-reached with their cult. They like to blame and/or link everything to “climate change”, from heat waves to massive blizzards. They’ve created this fantasy world where slight increases in carbon dioxide, what they refer to as “carbon pollution”, has caused all this, and is dooming Mankind (many Warmists want significant human population reduction), life on land and in the seas, and the Earth itself. It’s quite apparent that this is more about politics, creating a fully Progressive government and society, not science.
