2018 U.S. National Climate Assessment Has Unforgivable Flaws

1

Roger Pielke Jr. is an American political scientist and professor and the director of the Sports Governance Center within the Department of Athletics at the Center for Science and Technology Policy Research at the University of Colorado Boulder. Pielke has an interest in science. He is no fan of President Trump’s and believes man-caused climate change is a serious threat, however, he did point out the significant flaws in the Federal Climate Change report.

He said he was “curious how it is that the 2018 U.S. National Climate Assessment failed to include or overlooked trends in U.S. landfalling hurricanes which would, ahem, seem pretty important in a U.S. climate report.”

While he believes in “human-caused climate change”, he also believes climate advisory groups are “not beyond critique.”

Hurricanes are discussed at length in the report and every one of them is “a landfalling storm. The failure to include trend data on US landfalling hurricanes in USNCA is a remarkable choice. What were they thinking, no one would notice?”.

Pielke noted that they made the expert comment that the “National Hurricane Center going back to the 1800s data clearly indicate a drop in the decadal rate of U.S. landfalling hurricanes since the 1960s,” but they “spin the topic to make it sound like the trends are all towards more cyclones”.

He tweeted more information here.

THE CARBON DIOXIDE FALLACY

Democrats and their climate scientists won’t look at the evidence, such as: “the non-climatic effects of carbon dioxide as a sustainer of wildlife and crop plants are enormously beneficial, that the possibly harmful climatic effects of carbon dioxide have been greatly exaggerated, and that the benefits clearly outweigh the possible damage.”

That is an obvious fact. Yet climate scientists and politicians have decided that carbon dioxide is evil and dangerous. Perhaps it is because science has been politicized. Science has become part of the cultural revolution.

From the Powerline Blog: Indur Goklany has assembled a massive collection of evidence to demonstrate two facts. First, the non-climatic effects of carbon dioxide are dominant over the climatic effects and are overwhelmingly beneficial. Second, the climatic effects observed in the real world are much less damaging than the effects predicted by the climate models, and have also been frequently beneficial. I am hoping that the scientists and politicians who have been blindly demonizing carbon dioxide for 37 years will one day open their eyes and look at the evidence.

We don’t yet know the causes of the brutal fires in Campfire and Woolsey but they might well have nothing to do with climate change. They likely don’t.

THE CARBON TAX

TOM STEYER IS COMMISSIONING REPORTS TO COME OUT WITH CONCLUSIONS HE LIKES IN OUR HUMBLE OPINION

The 10 percent damage to the U.S. economy as the top line is a ridiculous conclusion reached by Tom Steyer’s ‘researchers’.

Just watch the riots in Paris over the carbon tax and expect that we will see them here.

  1. “…science has been politicized…part of the cultural revolution…” and the fact that everyone, regardless of political or other stripes, tend to “exaggerate” their position for “gain”- personal or otherwise – is mankind’s curse. “Moreso” now than ever the pursuit of infamy and pelf, as evidenced by the mainstream controlled fake media’s unwillingness to be factual and who join with the ignorant self centred – with a plan – revisionists to change history and the world…we are in for a very rough and bloody ride…that will make Adolf’s, Josef’s, Mao’s, Idi’s Pol’s etc., etc., pogroms look like picnics…the final “jihad”???
