Katherine Hayhoe is going to tell students at Texas Tech this Saturday that she knows how to control the climate.
The Citizens’ Climate Lobby and the Texas Tech Student Government Association are co-sponsoring a two-part event called “Realities of a Changing Climate: Solutions for a Brighter Future” on Saturday from 1-3:30 p.m. in room 169 of the Human Sciences Building at Tech. Katharine Hayhoe will speak on what is happening and why it’s a problem during the first hour of the event. Hayhoe is also a member of the advisory board of the national Citizens’ Climate Education.
Katherine expresses her personal opinion as plural, and says that droughts in the central and southwest US are going to get worse.
She can be concerned about anything she wants. But the data shows that she doesn’t know what she is talking about. Droughts in the corn belt have become much less common and much less intense over the past 120 years.
Droughts in the wheat belt have become much less common and much less intense over the past 120 years.
However, during the Little Ice Age, sand dunes covered the Great Plains, and California mountain lakes dried up completely.
Drought in the Southwest is caused by cold Pacific water, not warm water. When the Pacific warms up (like 2015) Texas and the southwest get very wet.
Texas is expecting floods this weekend, as Katherine Hayhoe pollutes children’s minds with her snake oil pitch about drought.
