At This Point, What Difference Does Her Incompetence Make?

Five years ago, Katherine Hayhoe told Texas students they could see climate change from their house.

The 2011 drought in Texas had nothing to do with “climate change.” It was a cyclical precipitation dip which occurs once in a while, due largely to a lack of hurricanes. The last two years have been the wettest on record in Texas.

We aren’t ignoring scientists, data or thermometers, we are ignoring people who lie to children.

    It’s worse than we thought! Apparently the drought is soooo bad, that tap water is no longer available to those poor parched Texans. I mean, no self respecting greeny would ever dare drink bottled water, unless it was a life or death situation. Just look at that face, she is obviously suffering great pain, and doing it for the children.

    Katherine Heyhoe……religious zealot and climate change forcaster.

    What a combination – how can she be wrong?

    Unfortunately the kind of blindness that religion engendours must be a material aid to mindlessly promoting climate fear amongst children, irrespective of what common sense and questioning of sensible doubt may tell her.

  3. mohatdebos says:

    I recall most of the major newspapers made fun of Governor Perry when he stated the drought reflected natural variability, and that rains would return. Does anyone know whether any media outlet apologized for criticizing the governor?

  4. Bleakhouses says:

    No matter, if its dry blame climate change and if its wet blame climate change.
    Who will ever know if its too dry or too hot anyhow?
    It is and always will be the perfect scam.

    This is from May this year:

    “A thermometer is not Democrat or Republican, and when we look around this world, it’s not about trusting what our thirty-year-old satellites say. It’s about looking at 26,500 indicators of a warming planet, many of them we can see in our own backyards,” she said. “

    • Jason Calley says:

      She would do well to look at the thermometers instead of the GISS output. The figures given by GISS have the same relation to temperature data that Parker House Rolls have to a bushel of wheat — and both have been highly inflated.

    • RAH says:

      “It’s about looking at 26,500 indicators of a warming planet, many of them we can see in our own backyards,” she said.

      Obviously it is beyond this persons ability to even properly read a friggin rain gauge!

      • Olaf Koenders says:

        She wouldn’t dare have a rain gauge in her yard as it would remind her how wrong she is. Maybe she needs a new prescription from her optometrist too.

    So glad that my daughter didn’t have to take any courses under this woman.
    Daughter got a Masters in Environmental Engineering from Texas Tech and while she is obviously environmentally conscious she is also intelligent and doesn’t believe all the doom and gloom crap out there.

    • Gail Combs says:

      There is a heck of a lot of difference between a conservationist and an Econut.

      Tony Heller, I and most of the rest here are conservationists. We care about the environment and do what we can. Econuts are only concerned with using the love of nature as a two X four to bash people in an effort to get their POLITICAL agenda accepted. They know that no one would volunteer to return to a lifestyle that is nasty brutal and short so they use scare tactics instead.

    In the past 35 years the atmospheric temperature has risen about 0.3 C.

    How does one recognize 0.009 C increase per year by looking out the window?

  9. Andy DC says:

    It is either too wet or too dry. All the fault of angry straight, white men who oppress women, the LGBTQ community and people of color!

    but what about the ozone hole!! It’s getting harder and harder to find SPF 2000 sunscreen.

    as for “global warming”, we Minnesotans welcome it. The difference between 30 below zero and 27 degrees below will be amazing. Or something.

    The ozone hole?

    Sept. 23, 2016 & John Kerry thinks he repaired the ozone hole:
    “Speaking at the Palace Hotel in New York City Thursday, Kerry praised the 1987 Montreal Protocol agreement, which he said he personally helped steer through the Senate.

    As a result, the hole in the ozone layer is shrinking and on its way to full repair. ”

    Science. The Antarctic Ozone Hole: “Chlorine/bromine should reach maximum levels in the stratosphere in the first few years of the 21st century, and ozone concentrations should correspondingly be at their minimum levels during that time period. It is anticipated that the recovery of the Antarctic Ozone Hole can then begin.”

      • Gail Combs says:

        And never any mention that the manmade molecules are Darn Heavy and don’t end up in the stratosphere.

        No mention that the ‘measurements’ were taken down wind of a Volcano belching Chlorine gas high into the sky. (H/T Pink Newsletter)

        No mention of the changes in solar energy spectrum that DOES determine the amount of O3 formation and destruction.

        • Jason Calley says:

          I am not sure how many people remember that the ozone hole scare and the outlawing of old-style freon happened just as DuPont’s patent on the chemical was expiring. Once expired, any company in the world would be able to legally manufacture and sell it. Luckily for DuPont, they just happened to have a newly patented chemical that replaced the outlawed freon.

          It is odd how the biggest corporations are so consistently lucky in each new legislation.

        • cdquarles says:

          Gail, you’re a chemist. You know all gases are miscible. Just like a drop of ‘heavy’ dye will color a tank of water, the HCFCs and CFCs will get to the stratosphere, boosted by diffusion using the kinetic energy of the other atoms/molecules on the way. That said, there is no chemical that man can make that the rest of nature can’t; nor is there any chemical that the rest of nature can make that man can’t, once man is aware of the chemical and any benefits from its synthesis that may arise.

          The ozone hole was and is a real phenomenon misused by politicians for political purposes.

    Heyhoe, Heyhoe,
    It’s off to worst we go,
    Heyhoe, Heyhoe,
    Heyhoe, Heyhoe,
    Heyhoe,
    Heyhoe, Heyhoe!
    To the tune of some gnomes singing High ho, high ho, it’s off to work we go… from a now ancient children’s movie the title of which I cannot recall.
