In 1977, Governor Brown warned that California was facing an unprecedented drought, blamed at the time on global cooling
This year, Governor Brown warned that California faces an unprecedented drought caused by global warming
Trenberth says that 2014 freak lightning and fires in California are caused by global warming
“On the West Coast,” Trenberth said, “you don’t have the complex vertical structure and wind shear typically associated with lightning storms.”
But a changing climate may alter those weather patterns, making such“freak” occurrences more common. California’s historic drought, for example, has the potential to set up conditions for extreme weather. “With the drought, the contrast between the ocean and land is much greater than it otherwise would be,” said Trenberth. “It’s those contrasts that can help set up circulation and make the weather a little bit more vigorous than it otherwise would be.
In 1977, experts said that freak lightning storms and fires in California were caused by global cooling.
This year, Jet Stream dips are blamed on global warming. They make Alaska warm, California dry and Florida cold
It is amazing how left wing politicians can recycle the same garbage from one generation to the next, by simply switching one word cooling => warming.
