This blog has always maintained that there is NO science behind the “Extreme Weather” or Causes-all-the-bad-weather theory, they just made it up as they went along.
Alarm bells should have gone off when they changed the name from “Global Warming” to “Climate Change”.
Here is a paper which quite definitively debunks this pseudo-scientific superstition. The authors have also failed to find any simple or even complex explanation of how an increase in global temperature will cause more bad weather.
The Global Warming – Extreme Weather Link
A Review Of The State Of Science
“The IPCC does not provide any physical rationale for the alleged increased incidence of these extreme weather events, but a simple (perhaps deceptively so) explanation is sometimes given by the IPCC and its supporters: a warmer climate will hold more atmospheric moisture and this can lead to enhanced thunderstorms and/or rainstorms in some areas while producing dryer areas and hot weather elsewhere. This simple statement has now been morphed into a hypothesis that ‘a warmer future climate will lead to increased extreme weather events in future’.”
Dr Madhav L. Khandekar Madhav Khandekar is a former research scientist from Environment Canada and was an Expert Reviewer for the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) 2007 climate change documents. He is a lead author of a chapter on extreme weather in the forthcoming report Climate Change Reconsidered II, published by Non-governmental International Panel on Climate Change in 2013.
Professor Brian R. Pratt Brian Pratt is a senior professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Canada. A well known sedimentologist and palaeontologist, he is a winner of the W. W. Hutchison Medal of the Geological Association of Canada, active in numerous learned societies, associate editor of several national and international journals, and is currently editor of a leading palaeontological journal.
The above explanation cited from the UNIPCC about more moisture causing more thunderstorms etc., etc., is pure sophistry, patently absurd (alleges more moisture produces worse thunderstorms AND drought), and is just not credible science.
