Absolutely not! This shows the total insanity of those in that article. The article starts out, "The brutal weather has been supercharged by human-induced climate change, scientists say. Climate models for three decades have predicted exactly what the world is seeing this summer. And they predict that it will get hotter — and that what is a record today could someday be the norm."
Brutal weather? We have never seen this before? They have no factual historic evidence to back this up. This is an opinion only and any true scientist will not offer an opinion without tons of data to back him or her up.
"Climate models for three decades have predicted exactly what the world is seeing this summer." Climate models have said everything from an Ice Age to the earth burning up by this time. If you take 10,000 climate model results and they all turn out with different results, you probably will have a few that are in the ballpark. The fact is that computer models have been 0% accurate.
"And they predict that it will get hotter." Eight years ago I was working up in Indiana. As I was coming home, I was listening to WHAS, a local station out of Louisville. It stated that Sellersburg, IN recorded a temperature of 113. I happened to be passing through Sellersburg and I looked at the temperature that my car was reading and it read 113. This is the same temperature that caused a commotion in Death Valley a few days ago. Many people claimed we were in the throes of Global Warming at that time, due to that temperature in Sellersburg. Right now it is at 79.36 F. But you won't hear of that from these so called scientists.
We could go on and practically debunk every single line of that article with true facts. But the naive will still believe the article. or that is what the article was written for. Is to scare the naive and get more research funds.
A scientists that is worth heeding is Will Happer:
Quote by Will Happer, Princeton University physicist, former Director of Energy Research at the Department of Energy: “I had the privilege of being fired by Al Gore, since I refused to go along with his alarmism....I have spent a long research career studying physics that is closely related to the greenhouse effect....Fears about man-made global warming are unwarranted and are not based on good science. The earth's climate is changing now, as it always has. There is no evidence that the changes differ in any qualitative way from those of the past.”
So forget the hysteria. Time will tell that Weather is weather and climate is climate. From that article, "Gone are the days when scientists drew a bright line dividing weather and climate. Now researchers can examine a weather event and estimate how much climate change had to do with causing or exacerbating it." These scientists openly admit tHat they can't tell the difference between climate and weather. NOW FOR ANY 'SCIENTIST' TO ADMIT THAT IS TANTAMOUNT TO ADMITTING TO HAVING A VERY LOW IQ!
