Pennsylvania doctor packs an unbelievable amount of bullshit into four short paragraphs
Many have been lulled into a sense of “business as usual” with the cold winter and cool spring we have been experiencing. Nevertheless globally, April tied for being the hottest April ever. What we don’t see can hurt us.
Utter nonsense. Satellite temperatures show that globally, April was close to the median since 1979.
Science, armed by 3000 worldwide ARGO underwater robots constantly measuring ocean temperatures, knows that the planet continues to rapidly warm. It shows that 97 percent of the heat trapped by the excess greenhouse gasses goes into the oceans. It does cause the water to expand, contributing to sea level rise and to more moisture in the atmosphere. Recent studies show that the warmer oceans are increasing the melting of ice in Antarctica and Greenland from below and they each are on a path to raise sea level by 4 feet.
Sea level is barely rising at the majority of tide gauges.
This heat will also “bite” us, as it is released to the atmosphere by such events as a likely El Niňo. So expect heat waves, droughts, storms, floods and wildfires to be frequent events.
Complete bullshit. Not one shred of evidence to back up any of his claims. All of the things he listed have always been frequent events.
All the respected scientific societies (such as National Academy of Science and the Royal Society) state that the planet is heating, mostly from human causes, and that this is serious and does require action now as many of these gasses remain in the atmosphere thousands of years. Nature will not listen to the denying political talk.
This guy is an embarrassment to the medical profession. The only dangerous gas in the vicinity is the hot air from people like James Jones, M.D.
