Naturally, global warming alarmists are coming out of the woodwork. They’re calling anyone who doubts global warming an idiot when the evidence (the hurricanes) is so clear. Mind you, these are the same people who point out to global warming skeptics that a snowstorm is not evidence that climate change isn’t happening.
In the winter they’ll say condescendingly, “Weather and climate aren’t the same thing.” Well, a hurricane is weather. Big weather, but weather nonetheless.
Now, if you’re thinking, well, aren’t the hurricanes evidence of more extreme weather? Consider this, even the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (a big believer in man-made climate change) has come out and said there’s no evidence to link hurricanes and climate change at this point.
Next time someone starts screaming at you about catastrophic climate change, try this for a response: “Climate change is predicted using computer models that are similar to those that predict hurricanes. They are incredibly complex and often not terribly accurate.”
Hurricane models have one advantage though. The people programming the models can see very quickly how accurate they are and then they can make modifications to improve them. It takes much longer to check the results of climate change models.
In case you were wondering how climate change predictions have turned out so far, enjoy this video produced by ABC in 2008 to show what we were in for by 2015 if we didn’t drastically curb our fossil fuel use.
And then give this article a read to see how complex the “settled science” of climate change is. It will give you plenty fodder to drive the global warming alarmists in your life mad.
