Texas Is Vulnerable To Clueless Academics

Four years ago, Andrew Dessler of Texas A&M announced that Texas would be hot and dry for the rest of the century

That forecast turned out to be a complete disaster.

Temperatures in Texas have fallen over the past century, and have plummeted since Dessler made his forecast.

It is clear that climate experts like Dessler and Hayhoe have little understanding of what actually drives the climate, yet the press continues to quote these same people over and over again – no matter how many times they are wrong.

    Texas reservoirs on a whole are 83% full and dumping water in most of the state (see data and map). That’s up from 62% in December. Reservoirs have added over 15M acre feet in that time frame, and amount equal to 3/4 the capacity in California (a huge amount of water).

    In other permanent drought/running out of water news Lake Lanier near Atlanta remains at full pool starting the third straight year.

    Way to go! Nice port and keep up the hard work. We appreciate it. I assume all future posts will be cross posted so I can just drop your wordpress site to the bottom of my bookmarks?
