IPCC links global warming to weather

At last, a scientific basis for suing coal-fired utilities when picnics are rained out.

The Associated Press reports:

Freakish weather disasters — from the sudden October snowstorm in the Northeast U.S. to the record floods in Thailand — are striking more often. And global warming is likely to spawn more similar weather extremes at a huge cost, says a draft summary of an international climate report obtained by The Associated Press.

The final draft of the report from a panel of the world’s top climate scientists paints a wild future for a world already weary of weather catastrophes costing billions of dollars. The report says costs will rise and perhaps some locations will become “increasingly marginal as places to live.”

The climate-weather distinction has been a problem for the alarmist community, especially since a British judge used it in 2007 to trash Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth”.

And just last month, alarmists discounted the climate-weather link.

  1. Back a couple of years, it snowed early in the year just before and during an Algore sponsored global warming conference. The alarmist said then that we cannot point to a single weather phenomenon but must use long term data to determine future global warming. Seemed reasonable to me. Then when all of their predictions of global warming were exposed as junk science based on hidden data, outright lies and cover-ups, the alarmists changed their take on immediate and isolated cold weather claiming that a single blizzard was evidence of global warming. Right!

  2. When every “weather” event can be explained by a theory, i.e. climate change, and no event can disprove the theory, it is not science, it is religion.

  3. Correction – only the thermosphere is affected and has shrunk by 5 miles (8km). Attributed to CO2 cooling the thermosphere because it is not letting trapped greenhouse heat escape. WOW!

  4. Look at the jet stream tracks for atmospheric Rossby waves – warm and wet on the eastern edge and cold and dry on the west edge. This was the recipe for the Washington ‘blizzards’, the California snows of October 5-6 and the weekend northeaster. What is the cause of the kinks in the jet streams? I dunno. Maybe the shrunken atmosphere noted by NASA last year. Hey – shrunken heads are wrinkly!

  5. Maybe Obama can blame the recession on global warming, too. “Everything is Bush’s fault” isn’t aging well anymore.

  6. I enjoy how they are again predicting 9 or 10 degrees rise in temp over who cares how many years, after predicting a rise in temp between 1998 and 2010, which NEVER happened. They were not even close. Well excuse me, they now have again gerryrigged their models to say the heat when into the deep ocean, my fault.
    My favorite line from this nonsense is they are 99% certain “that the world will have more extreme spells of heat and fewer of cold.” LOL, yeah that is a prediction. I am virtually certain there will be some days of perfect weather somewhere in the world on any given day.

    What else is fun, oh, the hottest ever since the dust bowl and the “weirdest” weather in 30 years. Which implies the weather was stranger 30 years ago and it was hotter during the dust bowl. So what CO2 warming caused the dust bowl? According to the idiot global warmists, the earth has never had hotter weather than today and hot weather is only caused by human activity.

  7. If everything is caused by global warming, then nothing is caused by global warming! A good scientist wants his work reviewed by everyone and anyone with the hope that his peers can find a flaw. Yet these global “scientists” are doing everything possible to have their data hidden. How good can their research be?

  8. All that is needed now it’s a sympathetic stupid federal judge. How many of those could there possibly be?

  9. I am lawyering up just in case! Maybe I could start a litigating club for shore-bound boaters, disappointed picnic-goers and cold, wet campers.

  10. If you predict every possible weather event will be caused by global warming, it’s easy to prove. Too much rain, not enough rain, etc. They did miss one – after Katrina, there just haven’t been that many hurricanes, though they said the count would continue to increase. Of course, they revised that prediction to fit available data…
