Every time there is a hurricane, drought, flood, etc…, or when a daily, weekly or annual temperature breaks a record certain scientists take the opportunity to opine, that while this or that particular record heat wave or hurricane can’t be tied to global warming, its is the kind of pattern that the models and theory suggest should occur, and, that we will almost certainly see more of the same in the future.
Where are these scientists when record low temperatures occur or when a tornado or hurricane season (or several) pass with record low events. Silent — when facts don’t fit the theory, hide.
In Dallas, we hit a record low and had the first ever recorded temperature in the 30′s in May of 2013. In fact, record lows and late, heavy snow falls are going on all over. In addition, after a high tornado year in 2011, we had a record low year for 2012 to 2013. This doesn’t disprove global warming theory, but it sure should raise some questions for those who year after year, despite the mounting contradictory evidence, claim that humans are causing catastrophic climate change is a fact — the science is hardly settled.
