Awesome: Hotcoldwetdry To Turn Chicago Into Texas Or Something

Yet another insane prognostication from the Cult Of Warming

Climate Change Could Turn Chicago into Texas, Report Claims

Last year was the hottest on record, and if climate change persists, it could get a lot worse, a new report claims, warning Chicago’s climate could mirror that of modern-day Texas by the end of the century.

The report, part of a study examining climate change called the Risky Business Project, was funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Paulson Institute and TomKat Charitable Trust, and examined how climate change may affect the Midwest, its cities, communities agriculture and businesses.

“The average Chicago resident is expected to experience more days over 95°F each year by century’s end than the average Texan does today,” the report said.

Uh huh.

Other consequences, the reported predicted, include rising energy costs, an increase in violent crime and economic losses to due agriculture being harmed.

I’d worry more about liberal policies regarding crime than Hotcoldwetdry. Same with rising energy costs. And straight up economic losses.

    Even though I think this is total BS, I bet the people of Chicago would welcome those temps, in comparison to the windy cold and snowy days they have now!

    Note that the prediction is far enough in the future that by the time it is falsified by events most normal human beings will have forgotten the original claim.

    Also note that the majority of CAGW claims are in this category, usually 50-100 years in the future.

    I live in central Indiana, just a couple hours down from Chicago. Last summer was the nicest, coolest summer we’ve ever had. I had to replace my air conditioner last year and then was pissed because I only used it 3-4 times.

    And I wonder if those Chicago temperature stations, sitting on the top of heat-soaking roofs, in the middle of a huge urban heat island, have anything to do with the new high temperatures they’re experiencing (I’ll beat that drum until someone moves them).

    Hoss,

    Former skeptic, Dr. Richard Muller of the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) project, has shown that siting of temperature stations is not the reason for warming.

    Deniers have stopped Denying that the Earth is warming, but have regrouped around the warming not being from greenhouse gases.

    Have any skeptics apologized for being so wrong about warming?

  5. Deserttrek says:

    Abusers have stopped denying that the Earth is cooling, and are still abusers, but have regrouped around the cooling not being real but a political lie.

    Jeff,
    I bet he devised one of those computer models to adjust the temperature to conform to his pre-conceived notions, right?
