Climate Change Fake News Report

Fake News is Defined HERE

Fourth US National Climate Assessment has just been published. And it is filled with scary overblown claims, flimsy justifications, and ridiculous assertions. You can read the claims HERE [NCA4_Ch02_Changing-Climate_ExecSum ] but here is one example:

The impacts of climate change are already being felt in communities across the country. In the absence of significant global mitigation action and regional adaptation efforts, rising temperatures, sea level rise, and changes in extreme events are expected to increasingly disrupt and damage critical infrastructure and property, labor productivity, and the vitality of our communities.

The question is, have communities really had a significant climate change, as claimed in the report and echoed by the local Nevada County progressives, or is this just more fake news? Let’s test some of the claims:

The U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN) is a systematic and sustained network of climate monitoring stations with sites across the conterminous U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii. These stations use high-quality instruments to measure temperature, precipitation, wind speed, soil conditions, and more. According to this NOAA USCRN graphic, there has not been any significant increase in temperature:

What about the declining snowpack?

How about increased severe weather?

There with your own eyes, you and Robert Cross can see that the Fourth US National Climate Assessment includes some fake news. Temperatures are flat, snow increasing and severe weather declining, what else is fake in this report. Stay tuned>

    I’ve been checking some media responses to this report, and the asymmetry of the science-citing skeptics and the science-skating warmists continues to be stark. The skeptics address and counter the individual claims of the hysteria mongers with hard data and arguments which are falsifiable (i.e. scientific) were they in error. The warmists response is to completely ignore the reasonable counters they encounter, and just go on talking as if there has been offered no creditable opposition to their abysmal record of predictions – in short, they will not enter into any adult discussion on the issue. That has been the approach to new ideas and rational debate on matters of science which was practiced for centuries under the various theocracies. And extending this successful practice, preventable man-made global warming has been sold as a faith-based system of belief for some years now, ever since it shed its original shaky basis in indefensible science, and substituted generously funding power politics for its new foundation.

    Thanks for this timely counter Russ. Now let’s see if the True Believers reply with anything besides crickets.
