Romm/NOAA Shock News : Historic Drought To Persist!

I wonder if our friends at NOAA have noticed yet that their hometown in Boulder is having its wettest and snowiest year on record?

    It’s a case of wet/dry

    I see that Florida was also predicted to continue with its severe drought, at least through June.
    But by August 2, the story here is a little different-

    “The biggest economic impact may be to agriculture in northern Florida said State Climatologist David Zierden in the release. “Even if things start drying out now, there are going to be substantial agricultural losses this year,” he said.
    The past three months were the wettest ever for many regions…
    South Florida endured the wettest April-July on record going back to 1932. Rainfall in the South Florida Water Management District for those four months was 31.7 inches, beating a 1968 mark of 31.55 inches.”

    D.E.A.D…C.E.R.T.A.I.N.

    318 thumbs up? NOAA really has an amazingly large and fervent doomer following! 😆

    snowiest/wettest Boulder? no, they don’t see that as the current scare word is drought, and that propaganda will be broadcast until further notice.

    Drought gets worse when it freezes (CO2 trapped heat again, dumped it into deep ocean, said NCAR). 8 hours on I-70 from Golden to Vail soccer cup last night. Frozen drought from Eisenhower to Vail Pass. Skidding semis. Multi-car pileups. Highway closures. Snow covered fields in the valley. Good hockey weather.

    Sorry to intrude on the party, but climate extremes is climate change. It is possible to have more droughts and and more floods. And more of them. That is what we are seeing.

      AVery, you are trying so hard to post bomb…

      ========================================================

      IPCC says “no” :

      Pay particular attention to the final paragraph, Avery. It was written with people like you in mind…..

      • Avery Harden says:

        I guess I didn’t make my point clear. I am not one that thinks every extreme weather event is tied to climate change. It is just that Steve continues to use weather anecdotes to say absolutely, positively than none of these extreme weather events are related to climate change. I concede we don’t know and should not make such claims, Steve should admit he doesn’t know either.

        • Latitude says:

          AVery, the post bomber!!

          …and guess what?…..Steve’s right….and he proved it

        • gator69 says:

          “A Dutch scientist reviewed 22 recent peer-reviewed studies regarding disaster losses and global warming. Not a single study found a connection between extreme weather, global warming and increased disaster losses. The 22 studies covered the entire spectrum of disasters, including: bushfire, earthquake, flood, hail, landslide, windstorm, thunderstorm, tornado, tropical storm, hurricane and hail.”

          “The Dutch researcher reports that “most of the 22 studies have not found a trend in disaster losses, after normalization for changes in population and wealth.” In fact, he says that “all 22 studies show that increases in exposure and wealth are by far the most important drivers for growing disaster losses ,” a conclusion that has also been reached by Changnon et al. (2000), Pielke et al. (2005) and Bouwer et al. (2007). And he adds that “no study identified changes in extreme weather due to anthropogenic climate change as the main driver for any remaining trend.”…Reiterating these observations in his paper’s concluding paragraph, Bouwer says that although “economic losses from various weather-related natural hazards, such as storms, tropical cyclones, floods, and small-scale weather events (e.g., wildfires and hailstorms), have increased around the globe,” the 22 studies he analyzed “show no trends in losses, corrected for changes (increases) in population and capital at risk, that could be attributed to anthropogenic climate change.”” [Laurens M. Bouwer 2011: Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society]”

          This is what science looks like Avery, quit hyperventilating over fairy tales.

      • Avery Harden says:

        When it sounds like I am saying a particular weather event is tied to climate change, I am usually responding to someone saying a particular weather event is proof of no climate change. My belief is that neither side should be making such claims.

        • gator69 says:

          Then why are you not harassing the alarmists? Fraud.

        • Latitude says:

          were you dropped on you head…repeatedly…as a child
          It’s the alarmist that claim extreme weather…..they even invented the handle “extreme weather”
          You’re responding to someone showing that there’s no such thing as “extreme weather”

          …you can’t possibly be that dense

          Another Climatechatterbot working hard to make Steve #1.

  7. Colorado Wellington says:

    “A Dutch scientist reviewed 22 recent peer-reviewed studies regarding disaster losses and global warming.”

    “… no study identified changes in extreme weather due to anthropogenic climate change as the main driver for any remaining trend.”

    Did anyone study whether the disaster in November 2012 was caused by CO2 levels?

  8. Colorado Wellington says:

    NOAA & Romm say: “Dust bowl days. Latest seasonal drought outlook projects historic drought will persist. Worsened by thin western snowpack.”

    Steven Goddard says: “I wonder if our friends at NOAA have noticed yet that their hometown in Boulder is having its wettest and snowiest year on record?”

    Avery Harden says: “… Steve continues to use weather anecdotes to say absolutely, positively than none of these extreme weather events are related to climate change.”

    Colorado Wellington says: “See the problem, Avery?”

  9. Avery Harden says:

    A good discussion should be like taking bids on a project. You throw out the high and low to find the more serious bids in the middle. If your sole purpose to to seek out the extremes in a debate and try to paint everyone on that side of the extreme with the same brush, you destroy the change of having a productive discussion.
