Texas is vulnerable to warming climate – Houston Chronicle

Four years ago, Texas academics predicted that Texas weather would be hot and dry for the rest of the century, like the summer of 2011. And that they could fix it.

Texas has since turned very wet, and none of the state is in drought.

The frequency of hot days in Texas has plummeted. The year 2011 was a statistical outlier which they claimed was a trend.

Before NOAA data tampering, Texas temperatures have dropped over the past century.

The heat and drought of 2011 was caused by cold water in the Eastern Pacific. This year they have warm water in the eastern Pacific, which normally leads to more rain in Texas. These academics are classic snake oil salesmen. They claim they can cure a non-existent malady.

    What do you suppose would happen if your stuff were reported daily in the news? Every day a 15 second spot of here’s what Goddard found today. Are those daily calendars, you know pictures of cute puppies or odd factoids, still in vogue?

    The climate scientists are very quick to point out that no singular event is proof of climate change, like the Great Lakes freezing 2 straight winters or the Potomac River frozen for the first time in record during March. But one heat wave in Texas is absolute proof positive of a “new normal”!
