Climate Change Means Weather Actually Changes

Doooooom!

(The Gazette) Four generations of my ancestors made a living in Iowa’s dirt. That proud legacy is under attack as extreme weather profoundly affects the productivity of Iowa’s current farmers and of farmers to come. Climate change is wreaking havoc on my farm, my family members’ farms, and every farm in Iowa.

I’m shocked that the weather would change. Since the weather was always completely predictable during the past 4.5 billion years, it must be because some farmer is driving a fossil fueled pickup along with other fossil fueled machines.

This year ushered in a new level of extreme weather. We had the worst blizzard on our farm in two years during a May 4 snowstorm, a foot of heavy, wet snow and 36 hours without power. I remember thinking; I suppose there’s someplace in the world where you can listen to frogs in the snow, but it shouldn’t be happening in Iowa. Climate change means the wrong weather at the wrong time.

Um, wait, so heavy and late snow is caused by warming? This is exactly why you Warmists are bat guano crazy.

    Yes. Counterintuitive, isn’t it? Global warming can cause such things, but there is no evidence that this particular storm resulted from global warming, only that it is more likely to occur.

    Significant changes in the arctic can actually change the jet stream, resulting in changes in the weather patterns of a region. You may have noticed that the climate science community started referring to global warming as global climate change because some low-information bloggers and TV pundits were saying ignorant things like, “Um, wait, so heavy and late snow is caused by warming?”

    “Only that it is more likely to occur.” But of course what’s important is if it really is “occurring more”, which it isn’t. “Significant changes in the arctic can actually change the jet stream.” There’s that scientific word again, “can”. But again, is it? If you don’t know, which you don’t, why bring it up? “Significant changes” Define significant changes. The climate astrologers trying to fool the populace again- notice that the “arctic change may cause jet stream change” theme didn’t manifest itself till the “warming” stopped. Hmm…must just be a coincidence. “Global warming community started referring to climate change instead of global warming after low information bloggers were saying ignorant things like “late, heavy wet snow caused by warming.” No, fool, it was after the warming stopped that the astrologers changed the name to climate change. Now it’s morphed into “severe weather events”. Now, who’s ignorant? Don’t worry, you’re not smart enough to answer that.

    It’s always encouraging when low-information science deniers profess a willingness to learn. I applaud you!

    Here’s a reference describing the effect of the significant 5C increase in the Arctic autumn temperature on the jet stream.

    And here’s a blog post explaining the jet stream.

    Scientists use terms such as “can”, “may”, “suggests”, “indicates”, “likely”, etc, because of the nature of science. Hypotheses and theories can never be proven. Scientists accumulate evidence that either supports or refutes the theory.
