It perturbs me that ipsedixitist columnist Pat Nash writes of hyperbole, fear-mongering, sarcasm and psychobabble to describe global warming without any substantive supporting documentation.
Words like, “our earth is warming more rapidly”, “more extreme weather events”, “record-breaking temperatures and higher sea levels”, “burning coal, oil and gas creates more carbon dioxide and methane gas than the earth can handle”, “starvation, poverty and wars over water.”
Rather than giving any supporting evidence for the above bombast, she as most liberals do, needs to make it political. Surprise. The writer goes on to pummel Sen. Ron Johnson on comments he made about global warming.
An April 2017 Climate Science Research Report has proven that the EPA’s basic claim that CO2 is a pollutant is totally false. “This analysis invalidates the EPA’s 2009 CO2 Endangerment Finding, including the climate models that the EPA has claimed can be relied upon for policy analysis purposes.”
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change provides regular interval reports on climate change. Their current datasets (2013) state that there are no “robust trends in annual numbers of tropical storms, hurricanes and major hurricane counts have been identified over the past 100 years in the North Atlantic basin.”
