Good Grief: “Climate Change To Make Fargo As Hot As Phoenix”

Warmists just need their fix of saying incredibly insane things, much like crack addicts need a hit on a constant basis. Here’s Nation Editor-at-Large Chris Hayes (no one watches his MSNBC show) yammering on during a radio interview

Climate Change Will Make Fargo as Hot as Phoenix

“Are you the unluckiest reporter in America today?” WNYC’s Brian Lehrer asked Nation Editor-at-Large Chris Hayes on Monday morning. Hayes laughed. The day before, the third episode of Years of Living Dangerously had aired on Showtime, in which Republican Congressman Michael Grimm admitted, in an interview with Hayes, the existence of man-made climate change. The following morning, Hayes woke up to news that Grimm had been taken into federal custody for alleged fraudulent business practices. “Well, we got a Republican convert on climate change,” Hayes joked, “too bad he got indicted the next day.” Fraud or not, Grimm’s change of heart is a positive step for Republicans, who continue to diminish the severity of the climate crisis. “If we continue doing what we’re all collectively doing on this planet,” Hayes told Lehrer, “we will get to a point where Fargo is like Phoenix.” Which is to say, climate change doesn’t care whether conservatives believe it exists, it’s going to destroy the planet if we don’t act.

Really?

The top is Fargo, the bottom is Phoenix. Those are the average temperatures, via Weatherspark.com. Fargo would have to jump up pretty far to be like Phoenix, temperature wise. “Climate change” is not going to destroy the planet. It didn’t during the much warmer Medieval Warm Period, nor during all the time when it was much, much hotter.

Of course, Hayes is also the kind of climakook who compares fossil fuels usage to slavery.

    You are correct that global warming will not destroy the planet. You are incorrect to claim the so-called MWP was much warmer than now, since it was almost certainly cooler then than now.

    Your implications that global warming will have little impact on humans is also unsubstantiated.

    Although it’s unlikely that the current global warming episode will cause the severe mass extinctions seen at 252 million years ago (ma), 201 ma or 66 ma, where 50% to 90% of plant and animal species were lost, we are looking at a significant extinction event. Homo sapiens, roaches, sponges, bacteria and Donald Trump’s hair will surely survive.

    The MWP was warmer than today, so you are incorrect. “Your implications that GW will have little impact on humans is unsubstantiated.” Your implication that it will is even more unsubstantiated.

    And the funny part is that Jeffery betrays his own cause by mentioning the prior extinctions. So the prior extinctions were much worse, he admits, before man came along. Now, it won’t be as bad even thought humans are spoiling the planet, he says. And on top of that he has no proof that said extinctions will even take place, and even less proof that they wouldn’t have happened anyway without all that CO2 (which has been much higher in the past) Thanks, Jeffery. Wow- adaptation happens.

    j,

    Since my cause is the truth, how did I betray the truth by telling the truth?

    The extinctions are already taking place. We are in the midst of what scientists call the “Sixth Mass Extinction”( I realize that you deny science). The extinction rate is 100 to 1000 greater now than the baseline average, so thousands of species were not able to “adapt”. Global warming is only partly to blame. Globalization (introducing species to new regions where they can overwhelm other species), habitat loss and pollution are more important reasons at this time.

    There is no good reason to think that global warming will slow the rate of extinction. It’s easy to understand how the continued lowering of ocean pH can impact species.

    I bet the people of Fargo would enjoy some warmer weather.
