Oops: 2012 Drought Not Caused By Globull Warming

Damned deniers and all their non-peer reviewed data, probably funded by Exxon and BP. Uber-climate astrologer Seth Borenstein brings us the 411

(Times Colonist) Last year’s huge drought was a freak of nature that wasn’t caused by man-made global warming, a new federal science study finds.

Scientists say the lack of moisture usually pushed up from the Gulf of Mexico was the main reason for the drought in the American heartland.

Thursday’s report by dozens of scientists from five different federal agencies looked into why forecasters didn’t see the drought coming. The researchers concluded that it was so unusual and unpredictable that it couldn’t have been forecast.

“This is one of those events that comes along once every couple hundreds of years,” said lead author Martin Hoerling, a research meteorologist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. “Climate change was not a significant part, if any, of the event.”

That’s weird: just last year Borenstein, the Associated Press’ resident climahysteric, blamed it on “climate change”. Even more strange, Seth forgets to mention that in the above article. But, don’t worry, he attempts say the report isn’t good.

Kevin Trenberth, climate analysis chief at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, a federally funded university-run research centre, said the report didn’t take into account the lack of snowfall in the Rockies the previous winter and how that affected overall moisture in the air. Nor did the study look at the how global warming exacerbated the high pressure system that kept the jet stream north and the rainfall away, he said.

“This was natural variability exacerbated by global warming,” Trenberth said in an email. “That is true of all such events from the Russian heat wave of 2010, to the drought and heat waves in Australia.”

What he means is that man-induced global warming (remember, just .08C increase since 1997 and .28F since 1990) is behind it, all because you drove and SUV and used hairspray. Warmists really, really, really hate science.

    It is long past time that we as a nation stop funding corporations or entities that are inherently opposed to its way of life, its economy and its existence as a democratic republic built upon the god-given individual freedoms of all men.

    Damn the Socialists and send them all to Cuba.

    We as a federal system should stop funding all private entities.
