And They Wonder Why They Are Not Taken Seriously

January 2009 – After snowstorms in British Columbia, a statement by Andrew Weaver, “climate-modelling expert at the University of Victoria and a lead author with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

for decades, climate scientists have consistently said that with climate change, many parts of the world should expect an increase in overall precipitation. “So the fact that we’re getting snowfall records is entirely consistent with what we’ve been saying,” he said.

February 2010 – After little if any snow in British Columbia, a statement by climate wrestler Joe Romm

this type of purely coincidental extremely warm weather is completely consistent with the predictions of climate science.  Indeed climate science says we are likely to see far, far worse, far, far more often

Another example in a comment to Andy Revkin’s “A Historian Looks ‘Back’ at the Climate Fight

In 1899, Washington DC had 54 inches of snow. We are told that was because there was less CO2 and it was cold. In 2010, Washington DC had 55 inches of snow. We are told that is due to global warming.

Why does the global warming community expect the rest of the world to be as neurotic and confused as they are?

    Thank you. According to me, these reports are sufficient to conclude that any thing goes in climate science. And from a logical point of view, that looks very bad.

    Greenie logic will answer somewhere along these lines:

    Well, if you’re going to ignore the science and look at historical records, then you’ll have to admit that 55 inches of snow is much more extreme than 54 inches of snow, and proof positive that Global Warming(TM) is to blame.

    And if, next year, there is very little snow, why that’s extreme again, and further proof.

    Is the whole climate debate starting to unravel with the possible discreditation of the climate statistics by the “climategate” emails? Is it really as suggested elsewhere (http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/02/climategates_phil_jones_confes.html) just an expedient for governmental hype?

    thank you Puck. They all work fine for me but I have updated the link with the tinyurl one, just in case

    There seems to be a problem with the first link. As it is currently posted it goes to 404 page. Try one of these instead:
