MORE CLIMATE INSTABILITY DENIER FALLACY. The Extreme Weather-Warming Connection

Published May 2, 2015 by wallacedarwin

Lamar Smith op-ed FALLACIES :-PThe Extreme Weather-Warming Connection  YET ANOTHER FALSE DIVERSION FROM DEMONSTRATED AND ACCEPTED FACTS OF PEER REVIEWED SCIENCE:                  Smith wrote that a connection between worsening storms and climate change has been “widely debunked,” and that the United Nations doesn’t believe that warming is related to “more severe weather disasters.” Both claims are incorrect. There is some evidence linking climate change to worsening hurricanes, droughts and other disasters.He mentioned an oft-repeated claim that there has been a “lack of global warming over the past 15 years.” Though the rate of warming has slowed, the world does indeed continue to warm, and cherry-picked data underlie the claims that warming has stopped.Smith quoted an InterAcademy Council report as saying the U.N.’s climate reports had “significant shortcomings in each major step” of the U.N.’s assessment process. That’s misleading. The report found that though there is certainly room for improvement, the U.N.’s process has been “successful overall.” =-O Excerpted 5/1/15 See full FactCheck/FlackCheck  Article
