Hayhoe/Dessler/Romm – The Unholy Trinity Of Texas Climate Stupid


Texas does everything big – and when it comes to climate stupid no one does it bigger than Katharine Hayhoe, Andrew Dessler, and Joe Romm. In 2011, all three of them were hysterical about the heat and drought in Texas. Katharine of Texas Tech read Romm’s climate porn that summer, and upped the ante with her own – predicting 5-7 weeks of 100 degree temperatures per year in Lubbock.

Had Katharine actually looked at the data for Lubbock, she would have known that there has been no change in the number of 100 degree days, that they occurred more frequently prior to 1960, and that 2011 was an outlier – not a trend. This year was one of very few with no 100 degree days.

Her map (and apparently her thought process) appears to have no basis in science. She simply saw a hot/dry summer as an excuse to do some of her trademark fear mongering.

Andrew Dessler of Texas A&M also threw his Texas sized hat into the stupid ring that summer, saying that Texas would be hot and dry for the rest of the century.

And a few months ago, Hayhoe was again fear-mongering about drought in west Texas

True to form, West Texas is now the most abnormally wet place in the United States.

These people have no idea what they are talking about, but profit greatly from spreading mindless climate nonsense. What they are doing is nothing new however. The US Weather Bureau warned bout people like Hayhoe, Dessler and Romm over a century ago.

it is the misuse of meteorological data …. that constitutes a crime against the community

    They’re playing whack-a-mole – and they seem to have the minds for it. I wonder if someone like Hayhoe even remembers what she said 4 years ago, or last year, or last month.

    So the question is, is this something inborn? Or does it develop as a result of embracing a dubious belief like AGW?

  2. ELC says:

    According to Trewartha’s climate classification, developed in the 1960s, most of Texas is one of the dry climates: either arid (desert) or semi-arid (steppe). In those regions, drought is the default, so to speak.

    She doesn’t need to remember, she just keeps tossing the latest plate of spaghetti against the wall and hope it sticks. She is well compensated and likely some of it sticks so she’s happy so she is doing a great job. Most people agree something needs to be done, and since most think someone else is paying for it, they don’t care too much.

    $100 billion a year buys a lot of spaghetti

    More and more it’s a carefully crafted story which sounds ever so believable

  4. Tony,

    When I load this page, I almost always get a “connection was reset” error. Then if I refresh again, it’s OK… Thought I should let you know. I hardly ever come here since most traffic is still at the old site, but it might be an issue for others as well… Mike S.
