Tropical Midwest

“Virtually no idea is too ridiculous to be accepted, even by very intelligent and highly educated people, if it provides a way for them to feel special and important. Some confuse that feeling with idealism.”

― Thomas Sowell

Experts say that burning fossil fuels will make the Midwest climate tropical by the year 2500.

This is similar to the forecast made by Greta’s ancestor Arrhenius over a century ago.

When will fossil fuels run out? | Octopus Energy

It isn’t clear how we quickly run out of fossil fuels and keep burning them until the year 2500 – but we already know what life is like on earth at much higher and lower levels of CO2. The greatest expansion of life on Earth occurred 540 million years ago, when CO2 was at its peak. Atmospheric CO2 levels were more than 15 times higher than they are now. Corals and shellfish evolved during that time.  If ocean acidification was a real problem, there would have been no sea life, rather than a massive expansion of life in the oceans..

The reason we have coal beds, is because there used to be a lot more atmospheric CO2, which made earth very green.  This greenery turned into thick peat beds, which turned into coal.

According to the National Climate Assessment, peak temperatures in the Midwest have plummeted over the past century.

Aggie Climate Joke

After failing badly with their climate forecasts ten years ago, Texas A&M professors are back with even more nonsensical prophecies.

Updated Aggie Joke

Ten years ago, Texas A&M professors said Texas would be hot and dry for the rest of the century.

Texas is vulnerable to warming climate – Houston Chronicle

Since then, Texas has had their wettest years on record.

Climate at a Glance | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Summer temperatures have plummeted in Texas over the last ten years, with this past summer being one of the coolest on record.

The hottest year in Texas was 1921, and afternoon temperatures have declined since the start of the 20th century.

Texas government listened to the scientists and built a lot of windmills. On February 12, USA Today was bragging that “up to two thirds of Texas energy output” was generated by wind.

Ten years later he is back with different propaganda. Now he says global warming is making Tessa wetter, hotter, producing more 100 degree days and making storm surges larger.

Texas has had very bad clod snaps in the past, but they weren’t reliant on wind power.

The frequency of 100 degree days has dropped sharply, with this past summer being one of the lowest on record.

In 2012, the San Antonio Express News said Texas is not warming, based on NCDC data.
