For Climate Scientists, Permanent Drought And Flood Are The Same Thing

Six years ago, President Clinton’s climate adviser said Arizona was in permanent drought caused by global warming, and cited a dust storm as evidence.

    Remember the Russian heatwave and Pakastani floods happening at the same time? And how it was claimed to be AGW? Nonsense! Piers Carbyn predicted when it would start and when it would end. It was jetsteam blocking, which caused hot air to flow out of the south into western Russia and cool air to flow southward into Pakastan, which caused a lot of rain.

    On the face of it, this seems like more alarmist propaganda, as their MO is to sensationalize normal weather events, like the summer monsoon in Arizona that brings storms every summer.

    I imagine someone needs to examine the actual weather records to see if the monsoon has gotten “worse” with time. But you would think the monsoon rains would be welcome in such a dry climate one way or the other.

    These guys say there’s no trend in AZ monsoon strength. Hurry and look before this is ‘adjusted.’

    Mistake? “president Clinton’s” should be “president Obama’s”? No more president Clinton’s please.

    Apparently the drought-flood is just the twin brother of the global-warming-snow.

    In a world where massmurderers get the noble piece price
    a flat line is a hockey stick
    and islam is the religion of peace
    0.01% co2 can turn a planet into a flaming second sun-
    that’s for sure.

    If I was the Arizona Chamber of Commerce, I would be telling these guys to “Shut the heck up!” and stop trashing the State. Who’s going to want to visit Phoenix any more with an freakish orange cloud rolling over the city?

    We here in Phoenix have had about the same amount of rain this year as any other year.
    Some areas get more deluge than others, but the dust storms (Haboobs) are brought about by the large areas in cotton, alfalfa, and pecan orchards, where the soil is exposed and the summer tropical winds and outflows from storms stir up the dust. We have seen the same things even twenty years ago.
    Southern Arizona has hot summers, but the fall, winter and spring has great weather. That’s among the reasons Phoenix is one of the largest cities in the country.

    While visiting Zion National Park during the end of this past September, we were unable to explore the Narrows because of flooding that made it too dangerous. Then, when we were in the Grand Canyon, we had to leave because of very powerful thunderstorms and rain, so we ventured south to Sedona. We can certainly attest to that permanent drought.

    We’ve had a few good monsoon rains this year but nothing special. It has been very humid for Arizona – everything is green! As far as dust storms, so far this year has been under average as far as I’m concerned.

    Sorry sensationalists, really nothing out of the ordinary this year in Az. Maybe next year.

    But you know they also say “weather extremes” are caused, too. They’ll say droughts and floods swinging both ways = bisexual climate change, now. In keeping with current transgender trendy MSM news cycle.
