Ask A NASA Climate Soothsayer

NASA’s Bill Patzert says that there is no evidence hurricanes, tornadoes, fires, floods or drought are getting worse, but they definitely will in the future.

“Now, direct evidence of the footprint or the fingerprint of global warming: we’re seeing more frequent, more intense, and longer lasting heat waves. As far as hurricanes, tornadoes, forest fires, floods, and drought, the evidence is definitely not in. The consensus among almost all scientists is that it’s a small fingerprint, not a large footprint.  “But what is true is that in this country, in the United States, we live in many areas with great risk to drought, to tornadoes, to hurricanes, and so part of the dialogue is not only extreme weather and global warming, but is the amount of risk we can tolerate. Now looking to the future, global change, global warming – it definitely is accelerating and it will have an impact on extreme weather, but at this point, not much.”

I’m not surprised that he says extreme weather will get worse in the future, because his ongoing employment undoubtedly depends on saying that. But what baffles me is his assertion that heatwaves are getting worse. All of the data indicates that US heatwaves have become much less intense, less frequent, shorter, and covering a smaller area than they were 80 years ago. Even the EPA recognizes this.

The bottom line is that empirical data shows no evidence extreme weather is increasing, yet scientists cling to this BS because …. their jobs, prestige and funding depends on it. They boldly appear before the public and make claims which are utter nonsense.

There has been no increase in extreme weather, period. Alarmists are terrified by the lack of hurricanes, because it shows that their models and understanding are complete garbage.
