Living in the Pacific NW, it is evident the weather man, using all his scientific data, is no more accurate in calling the weather than the guy drawing lines on the weather map in the 1950’s, who relied on Air Force weather planes. But, I never hear the weather guy make excuses. The climate change bunch, from my highly uninformed sense (oh, don’t try and take advantage of that remark), build their computer models and then adjust them at will to justify all manner of doomsday assertions….or global cooling!
“World temperatures did not rise from 1998 to 2008, while manmade emissions of carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuel grew by nearly a third, various data show.
The researchers from Boston and Harvard Universities and Finland’s University of Turku said pollution, and specifically sulphur emissions, from coal-fueled growth in Asia was responsible for the cooling effect.” Jammie Wearing Fool
