Katharine Hayhoe Permanent Drought Update

Snake oil saleswoman Katharine Hayhoe took advantage of the 2011 drought in Texas to declare herself a climate expert – by blaming it on humans.

Drought – Years Of Living Dangerously

Texas precipitation has been increasing since the 19th century, with the last four years among the wettest on record. Drought risk is decreasing, not increasing as Hayhoe claims.

When confronted with her incompetence, Katharine does what all climate alarmists do, she simply lies about it and claims she got it right.

    The year 2011 was an excellent year for Hilarious Hayhoe to cherrypick. Midland, Texas received little more than 5″ of rain that year – little more than a third of normal.

    She probably doesn’t know that long term cycles of precipitation exist, driven by long ocean cycles like the PDO, or that the U.S. Southwest and the Northwest are on opposite ends of a precipitation seesaw. That strong 2011 La Nina which produced drought in Texas gave Oregon’s Mt. Bachelor ski area record setting snow. If Hilarious Hayhoe is still pontificating in a few years when the PDO flips, she will probably claim that Oregon’s drought is the result of man-made climate change.

    And Galveston wasted all that money and effort on sea walls, apparently.

    How did she get her Degree? Don’t answer that…………..

    • Don B says:

      Katharine Hayhoe is a professor of Political Science. That explains a lot.


      A wit once said that if she were intelligent, she would not be at Texas Tech.

      That is not fair. Penn State is a good school, and they actually hired Michael Mann.

          And completely clueless

          Before we come to class and Range the Sciences, ’tis proper we should sift the merits of Knowledge, or clear it of the Disgrace brought upon it by Ignorance, wether disguised as (1.) the Zeal of the Divines, (2.) the Arrogance of Politicians, or (3.) the Errors of Men of Letters.
          -Sir Francis Bacon, “Advancement of Learning”, 1605 (Father of the Scientific Method)

          Hanging papers mean nothing to me any longer, I have seen way too many lettered individuals who could barely spell PhD. If you want my respect, tell the truth and don’t lie about confidences.

          “Currently a professor at TTU in Political Science”

          I am not surprised. Everything she does appears to be political.

      • Louis Hooffstetter says:

        The fact that Katharine Hayhoe describes herself as a “Climate Evangelist”, is telling. Despite her strong science education, she eschews scientific logic for religious belief. But because it is impossible to mix religious beliefs with scientific research and remain objective, she’s clearly not a scientist. Katharine Hayhoe is a cultist, (a follower of a religion or religious sect generally considered to be extremist or false) in the cult of Anthropogenic Global Warming. And because she’s a true believer, she’s very good at spreading her belief in AGW.

    Thanks Tony. I’m honored to have my Tweets to Ms Hayhoe highlighted by you.

    The left lives on the edge of reality, so parsing words is a matter of survival.

    In their ‘documentary’ actor Don Cheadle travels to Plainview, TX which is in the midst of that short-term drought in Texas. The thrust of the segment – filmed in a local church – is that the locals are blaming it on natural cycles, or God. Cheadle (probably educated by Hayoe) attempts to convince them that it’s caused by AGW/ACC.

    These people are criminal.

  7. AndyDC says:

    When is Dr. Hayhoe going to credit humanity for the multiple record corn and soybean crops over the last several years? When is she going to credit humanity for several very slow tornado seasons?

  8. DCA says:

    So, let’s see if we can guess what person at Texas Tech would not be needed on the payroll if the CAGW charade collapses?

  9. Prof. Wallace Glab says:

    I am a Professor in the Physics Department at Texas Tech. This woman I had ever heard of gave the featured talk at our Department Banquet last year. It consisted mainly of saying, “simple physics tells us with absolute certainty that we will all die because of AGW”, showing the usual cherry-picked data and scary pictures of droughts, floods, and giant, scary hurricanes.

    Hey Kate, simple physics works great for describing balls rolling down inclined planes, but not for an incredibly complex system involving solar variation and interaction between hydrosphere, cryosphere, etc. I had my head in my hands, muttering OMG until I realized that she was a Political Science professor, and therefore an evangelist.

    • Gator says:

      Thanks for the informed input Prof Glab, it is such a shame that “academics” like Hayhoe are giving science the middle finger, and a black eye.

      All the best!
