New Study Links Weather Extremes to Global Warming

The moderate global warming that has already occurred as a result of human emissions has quadrupled the frequency of certain heat extremes since the Industrial Revolution, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that a failure to bring greenhouse gases under control could eventually lead to a 62-fold increase in such heat blasts.

In other words, this is not a scientific report, it is a political report. It simply declares that Mankind is at fault. Notice that they are scare-mongering over what “could” happen in the future. Prognostication, not science.

The planetary warming has had a more moderate effect on intense rainstorms, the scientists said, driving up their frequency by 22 percent since the 19th century. Yet such heavy rains could more than double later this century if emissions continue at a high level, they said.

“People can argue that we had these kinds of extremes well before human influence on the climate — we had them centuries ago,” said Erich M. Fischer, lead author of a study published Monday by the journal Nature Climate Change. “And that’s correct. But the odds have changed, and we get more of them.”

Politics, not science. This has all happened before, but, hey, this time it is totally different! Because we say so! Based on computer models!

For their paper, Dr. Fischer and Dr. Knutti focused on more common heat and precipitation extremes. Using computer analyses of what the climate would be like if the Industrial Revolution had never happened, they focused on the sort of weather extremes that would be likely to occur in any given location on the earth about once in 1,000 days, or a little less than three years. (snip)

Since the 19th century, the earth has warmed by about 1.5 degrees Fahrenheit. Computer models suggest that has driven up heat extremes four- to fivefold, according to the new study.

What caused the previous Holocene warm periods? If that is not discussed, then the paper is worthless.

This whole “extreme weather” think has been debunked numerous times. There really has been no increase in heat waves, precipitation events, tropical cyclones, etc. Heck, an NOAA report debunked it. And there is no factual, real world evidence that any events are anthropogenic from global warming versus simply natural. That is not to say that there aren’t any anthropogenic causation, but this goes more towards land use and the Urban Heat Island Effect than a global causation. Localized.

“The bottom line is that things are not that complicated,” Dr. Knutti said. “You make the world a degree or two warmer, and there will be more hot days. There will be more moisture in the atmosphere, so that must come down somewhere.”

First, the world warming doesn’t prove global anthropogenic causation. Second, there were certainly heat waves in the earlier warm periods, were there not? Hey, they have to keep the money train going, so, scary stories it is.

Can they explain the 18+ year Pause?

    The previous warm periods happened because of orbital tilt changes and are fairly well known as is the climste cha
    Now due to volcanic activity neither of which explain the present vlimste change

  2. JGlanton says:

    Climatology cult leaders say that there are and will be more hot days when our own USHCN data record shows that the number of hot days has been dropping significantly since early last century and are now about half of what they were during the Dust Bowl era.

    Another new study opinion piece published by the journal Nature Climate Change.

    *Sigh*. I miss the 1800s. That was before man made climate change. The weather was always so perfect back then. No floods. No droughts. Nothing extreme at all.
