While CBS touts a “groundbreaking” government report linking extreme weather and climate change, German researchers find 2,000 years of cooling and warmer temps in medieval times and the Roman era.
This summer’s heat wave has given the global warmongers new hope in conning the hot and the restless into believing the whole thing is due to that SUV parked in your driveway and that coal-fired plant down the street.
Not so fast, say German researchers who documented a two millennia cooling trend. Both the Roman legions and Crusaders marched in warmer climes.
On Wednesday’s CBS This Morning, CBS News correspondent Wyatt Andrews breathlessly intoned that a recent study from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) had established “the first-ever statistical connection between extreme weather and man-made climate change” and that the study “found that man-made heat made the Texas drought roughly 20 times more likely.”
Well, you know the adage about lies, damned lies and statistic. We have documented how researchers at Britain’s Climate Research Unit manipulated data to “hide the decline” in global temperatures that other data, such as from satellite observations, had indicated.
