Why Everybody Seeing Climate Changes Now Is Uninformed Or A Liar

In its latest “Special Report on Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation (SREX)”, whose “Summary for Policymakers” (1) is dated November 18, 2011, the IPCC writes (my emphasis):

(p9) “Projected changes in climate extremes under different emissions scenarios generally do not strongly diverge in the coming two to three decades, but these signals are relatively small compared to natural climate variability over this time frame. Even the sign of projected changes in some climate extremes over this time frame”

Therefore people trying right now to discern/portray climate change of the extreme variety, (“disasters [that] produce widespread damage and cause severe alterations in the normal functioning of communities or societies“, according to the IPCC – in other words the only changes of actual practical interest), are placing themselves outside mainstream science, perhaps out of naivety, perhaps due to personal gain.

In any case, not one of the usual suspects will lament such a manipulation of the best evidence we have. Who needs skeptics when believers are so determined to sustain each other through long-distance charades?

    If you take a historic look at extreme weather, it’s more associated with cooling rather than warming. So in the broadest sense climate change and extreme weather may go hand in hand but global warming and extreme weather might actually have an inverse relationship.

    30 years at a minimum. Too many people seem to forget that 30years was the barest bottom rung of climate versus weather. Like for instance my local newspaper switched to the last thirty years for annual rainfall average despite our town having a rainfall total records well into the 18th century.

    They’re using it to make believe we are in drought, as support for the city democrats pushing water restrictions and meters.

    Confusion between weather and climate change still with us!

    Every extreme weather event is grabbed by alarmists to prove climate change. Since climate is the average weather over 30 years this sudden leap of faith is ill founded for all the so called extreme events as a look into history will show. Climate does change but over decadal timescales.
