More Lake Effect Snow

8 January, 2018

Weather is a more immediate effect of changes in the climate.  You can’t have one without the other.  On the other hand, it is foolish to choose a cold day and then say – “there, you see, the Earth is NOT getting warmer.”  It is fair to note that extreme weather events are occurring more frequently.  Two major changes have occurred over the last 2,000 years.  One, the human footprint has expanded almost beyond belief and two, the CO2 content in the air has increased proportionately.  Our species has never experienced this level of CO2. Not helpful is that our measuring instruments were designed to measure inanimate objects on an inanimate planet.  No wonder we have so little understanding as to how the Earth “works.” Our living planet’s behaviour is unpredictable just like people’s behaviour is unpredictable.  We don’t destroy the medical profession because they cannot always accurately predict whether our prescription will “work” or not. Finally, we must take into account that millions of dollars, pounds etc. have been awarded to “scientists?” to falsify statistics and create “fake” news. Is it any wonder that there are so few tears shed over the destruction of Nature?

World-renowned climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains why the bitter cold and snowy conditions gripping the US are “an example of precisely the sort of extreme winter weather we expect because of climate change.”
