There Are No Qualified Atmospheric Scientists In Texas

Four years ago Andrew Dessler wrote that Texas would be hot and dry for the rest of the century, and that no qualified Texas scientists would disagree with him

Texas is vulnerable to warming climate
July 10, 2011

The weather of the 21st century will be very much like the hot and dry weather of 2011. Giving extra credibility to this forecast is the fact that the weather extremes that we are presently experiencing were predicted in the first edition in 1995.

There are few qualified atmospheric scientists who would argue with the assessment in the book. And there are none in Texas. Attempts over the last few years to stage a debate in Texas about the science of climate change have required flying a skeptic in from out of state.

Texas temperatures peaked in the 1920s and 1930s. The long term trend is down since 1895

The logical conclusion is that Texas climate academics like Dessler and Hayhoe have absolutely no idea what they are talking about.

    Yet another spectacular failure, while the MSM report the exact opposite!

  2. John Silver says:

    So, where are they then, if not in Texas?

      Other than a few notable exceptions, “Qualified Atmospheric Scientists” are oxymorons (with emphasis on morons).

      Some notable exceptions:
      Dr. William Gray in Colorado.
      Dr. Richard Lindzen in Massachusetts.
      Dr’s Roy Spencer & John Christy in Alabama.

    It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.

    The logical conclusion is that Texas climate academics like Dessler and Hayhoe have been bought and paid for to talk about and be obsessive-compulsive alarmists about GLO-BULL warming!
    They are getting rich lying so the BS will continue for as long as the money flows to pay for the BS.

  5. ColA says:

    So post this back to him and ask for a retraction!
    Make him publically admit he is wrong!

  6. The Iconoclast says:

    Dessler got tremendous press and absolutely hooted at Rick Perry for saying yeah Texas has droughts, they come and then they go. And he said “Not this time!” And has anyone from the press asked him about his completely failed prediction and written it up? Of course not.

    UNL drought monitor says 99.81% of Texas is not in drought. It could hardly be more the opposite of what Dessler said.

    Of course they don’t ask; all eyes are glued to California, the new playspace for AGW alarmism.

    I notice Lake Travis has rapidly filled and is less than 10 feet below full.
