Romm Declares The Current Drought Worse Than The Dust Bowl

What’s more ironic is that the Senate’s leading climate denier bailed on the annual Heartland climate science denial conference this morning — saying “I am under the weather” (!) — just as his home state is being slammed by a record-smashing heatwave and a drought more severe than the Dust Bowl of the 1930s.

Good call Joe. Check out August, 1936

YTD precipitation in Oklahoma was drier in 1895, 1936, 1996, 1963, 1917, 1972, 1896, 1971, 1962, 1910, 1956, 1925, 2003 and 1934. YTD precipitation is almost 50% higher than 1895.

Romm is simply making up statistics – once again.

    Baghdad Romm

  2. Charles Higley says:

    Facts are irrelevant. Exaggerated, overblown claims of disaster are much more important than anything like accurate.

    Romm is NOT a scientist by any stretch of the imagination based on his writing. Neither are Jones or Mann for that matter.

    No one can take you integrity. Only you can give it away.

  3. Al Gored says:

    But those maps of how things will be in 2080-2099 and 2090-2099 sure are purty.

  4. Paul H says:

    Do warmists actually believe this rubbish? IWB, Tony?

  5. Andy WeissDC says:

    The 1930’s were too long ago to be relevant. Back then, instead of satellites, they used a crude, unreliable device called a thermometer, which were read and subjected to interpretation by a bunch of stupid farmers. Can’t compare with today’s sophisticated satellite sensors and the proper intrepretation of that data by today’s climate experts. We can now determine average world temperature within a margin of .00001 degrees.

  6. Douglas Hoyt says:

    Every 19-22 years, you have a severe drought in the western US. It is usually referred to as the 22 year drought cycle. It is due to start this year. Droughts in 1890s, 1910s, 1930s, 1950s, 1970s, and 1990s are part of this cycle which can also be seen in earlier records.

  7. P.J. says:

    “It is usually referred to as the 22 year drought cycle”.

    The solar cycle is 22 years as well … you may be on to something here.

  8. Andy WeissDC says:

    Does, the 22 year cycle mean that we are headed into a Dust Bowl? If so, we can expect some major bedwetting on the part of the alarmists.

    • Douglas Hoyt says:

      The timing of the droughts can be predicted within a few years, but predicting their intensity can’t yet be done. If the climate scientists were doing their jobs properly, they would have told people to prepare for a western drought sometime after 2010.

    • Latitude says:

      That’s what they are counting on Andy…
