The National Center For Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado has this 15 year old “educational” video in their lobby, blaming the rise in the North Atlantic Oscillation on your car. The video also says that the NAO is the primary driver of climate in the Northern Hemisphere.
At the time they made the video, the NAO had already started a twenty year decline, which brought it to its lowest levels on record by 2010. Utterly clueless science.
Climate scientists constantly blame phenomena on CO2, without the slightest evidence other than some short term correlation cherry-picked from one leg of a cycle.
Missouri used to have multi-year heatwaves about once every twenty years. But they quit happening after the 1980s.
A few weeks ago, climate criminal Michael Mann (who knows nothing about the subject) said that satellite temperatures are not as reliable as surface temperatures.
According to Dr. Michael Mann (Penn State), the satellite temperature record has actually been subject to more adjustments than the surface record. Mann also states that the global satellite temperature record has been shown to have a bias of showing too little warming.

Thus is a flat out lie. The surface temperature record has been adjusted to the point of being farcical.
NASA has doubled 1880-2000 warming since 2001 by eliminating rural stations and homogenizing UHI infected urban stations.
The entire US warming trend over the past century is due to adjustments.
Dr. John Christy of the University of Alabama at Huntsville is an actual expert on satellite temperatures, and he pulverized Mann’s fraud in Congress this week.
First, the claim is made the satellites do not measure temperature. In reality, the sensors on satellites measure temperature by emitted radiation – the same method that a physician uses to measure your body temperature to high precision using an ear probe. Atmospheric oxygen emits microwaves, the intensity of which is directly proportional to the temperature of the oxygen, and thus the atmosphere. That the satellites measure temperature is evident by the following chart which compares our UAH satellite data with temperatures calculated from balloon thermistors. As an aside, most surface temperature measurements are indirect, using electronic resistance.
Michael Mann has been shown over and over again to be an embarrassment to the profession, but he says the things that progressives want to hear. So they listen to him and ignore actual scientists.
The New York Times says that global warming is making the glaciers in Glacier National Park disappear by 2050.
Climate studies have predicted changes if emissions, and temperatures, continue to rise through the end of this century.

The press was saying the exact same thing a century ago, and said that the glaciers would be gone by 1950.

According to NASA data, this disintegration was occurring during the coldest years on record. CO2 was 305 PPM CO2.
Glaciers have been melting for 20,000 years, since New York was buried under thousands of feet of ice.

Two years ago, the New York Times announced the end of snow.

Had they bothered to do any fact checking, they would have known that snow in NY is increasing in a hockey stick and is double what it was a century ago.
They are getting slammed with snow right now.
CNN says that you are making the Marshall Islands disappear.

Sea level at the Marshall Islands has been plummeting for several years, and is now about the same as it was in the 1950s.

In 2008, Robert Kennedy Jr. announced that Sarah Palin had ruined snowfall in Virginia.

In Virginia, the weather also has changed dramatically. Recently arrived residents in the northern suburbs, accustomed to today’s anemic winters, might find it astonishing to learn that there were once ski runs on Ballantrae Hill in McLean, with a rope tow and local ski club. Snow is so scarce today that most Virginia children probably don’t own a sled. But neighbors came to our home at Hickory Hill nearly every winter weekend to ride saucers and Flexible Flyers.

The closest Virgina USHCN station to McLean is at Lincoln, and it shows that the area now gets about as much snow as it did when Kennedy was a child.
And the frequency of heavy snows is also about the same.
However, experts now say that the snow is caused by global warming, whereas the 1960’s snow was caused by global cooling.
