Hayhoe/Dessler/Romm – The Unholy Trinity Of Texas Climate Stupid

download

Texas does everything big – and when it comes to climate stupid no one does it bigger than Katharine Hayhoe, Andrew Dessler, and Joe Romm. In 2011, all three of them were hysterical about the heat and drought in Texas. Katharine of Texas Tech read Romm’s climate porn that summer, and upped the ante with her own – predicting 5-7 weeks of 100 degree temperatures per year in Lubbock.

With No End in Sight for Texas Drought, ABC News Explains: “Every Farmer in the World Will Be Affected by Climate Change” | ThinkProgress

Had Katharine actually looked at the data for Lubbock, she would have known that there has been no change in the number of 100 degree days, that they occurred more frequently prior to 1960, and that 2011 was an outlier – not a trend. This year was one of very few with no 100 degree days.

Her map (and apparently her thought process) appears to have no basis in science. She simply saw a hot/dry summer as an excuse to do some of her trademark fear mongering.

Andrew Dessler of Texas A&M also threw his Texas sized hat into the stupid ring that summer, saying that Texas would be hot and dry for the rest of the century.

And a few months ago, Hayhoe was again fear-mongering about drought in west Texas

True to form, West Texas is now the most abnormally wet place in the United States.

These people have no idea what they are talking about, but profit greatly from spreading mindless climate nonsense. What they are doing is nothing new however. The US Weather Bureau warned bout people like Hayhoe, Dessler and Romm over a century ago.

it is the misuse of meteorological data …. that constitutes a crime against the community

    Texas is an enormous state, about the size of France, and like France it has many climates. Having lived in Texas, I can assure you that there is nothing unusual about hot and dry there, just as there is nothing unusual about cold and wet. It’s called weather.

    The scientific publications of Katharine Hayhoe:

    The scientific publications of Steven Goddard:

      • Jason Calley says:

        Sure Richard Feynman was bright. Heck, he discovered quantum electrodynamics! Still, he was no climate scientist, and definitely no Katharine Hayhoe!

        (Just in case it is not obvious, that was tongue in cheek.)

      • Barbara says:

        Most refreshing! Feynman has been my hero for a long time. One of my own favorite quotes from him, “If you thought that science was certain–well, that is just an error on your part.”

      • Gail Combs says:

        Following up on what Dr Feynman says……

        Northern Hemisphere snow has soared to record levels

        April 2015 Great Lakes Ice Coverage at record levels

        and across the pond
        August count of Scottish Snow Patches at record levels

        Last Winter Polar Vortex

        Wisconsin Ice Age Glacial Maximum

        The current weather patterns with a meridional pattern to the jet stream is characteristic of a cooling climate not a warm climate.

        OOPS! Mother Nature says your beautiful GUESS is WRONG!

    • A glimpse into the strange world of Martin Smith’s mind: Argumentum ab auctoritate fortissimum est in lege. *)

      The scientific publications of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels:
      https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/cw/index.htm

      The dialectical nature of climate change is a striking confirmation of the philosophy of dialectical materialism developed by the founders of scientific socialism, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. In his unfinished book The Dialectics of Nature, Engels provides us with an explanation of dialectical materialism: “the transformation of quantity and quality – mutual penetration of polar opposites and transformation into each other when carried to extremes – development through contradiction or negation of the negation.” This is confirmed to be just as correct for global warming, particularly through the discovery of ‘tipping points’, as in other aspects of science and nature. For example, computer models predict that an overall increase in global temperatures, Britain could experience a dramatic fall in temperature, much colder than at present. The reason is simple – the Gulf stream, the current of warm water from the Caribbean that keeps the British Isles warm, could be diverted due to melt water from the Arctic. What better confirmation could there be of the dialectical “mutual penetration of polar opposites”?

      ——————–
      *) Argumentum ab auctoritate fortissimum est in lege means reasoning from authority is most valid in law. An argument supported by authority carries the greatest weight in law. This is because arguments from authorities form part of informal logic. Normally, when a person has little knowledge of a certain matter, the person depends on the knowledge of an expert in the issue. To support a proposition authoritative arguments supporting it make courts believe it to be true.

    • It would be difficult to overstate how spectacularly stupid Martin’s comment is.

    • PeterK says:

      Martin: This is what I would expect from a five year old. Congratulations! You’re a big boy now!!!

    • John says:

      And the number of scientific publications by “who cares” changes the historic weather record for Texas, how?

    • Martin…. who is Right.. and who is full of shit??

      Hayhoe is just a Credentialed Turdd.. Parrot, Copycat..
      Goddard=Groundbreaking and Original

    • Xyzzy11 says:

      And the number of scientific publications by Martin Smith is?

    • Justa Joe says:

      If the general public really knew the politically partisan nature and activities of Hayhoe and especially Dessler the public would be shocked and dismayed that these types are who compose “the consensus”.

    • sunsettommy says:

      Irrelevant to the post.

    • Andy DC says:

      Just proves that there is a lot of money that flows on the gravy train for those who follow the script. You look at what she has published, about weather and climate, past, present and future. It is deliberately misleading drivel with the obvious intention of promoting a climate crisis that simply does not exist. She already has a track record lasting many years of being constantly incorrect concerning her climate speculation. If she were a financial adviser, she would be walking the streets.

  4. Anybody can write a paper on climate alarmism and be published. Almost guaranteed to be published. The pee review process takes 30 seconds plus another minute to mop up the floor afterwards.

  5. Martin Smith says:

    Steven, I can’t help notice that you make no demand of your followers that they stick to the point and remain civil. You don’t even require it of yourself. Why is that?

    • wizzum says:

      The majority of people here a readers, not followers. Followers are religious zealots who resort to changing the subject when they are losing an argument and post polite ad hominem attacks when everything else fails or are confronted in their misguided beliefs, such as: CO2 is changing the climate for the worse but cannot show where it has (Deserts are greening, polar bear numbers are up and global sea ice is basically unchanged for 35 years).
      Claim that C02 is the major driver of temperature change and that increasing it will lead to an exponential increase (run away) temperature increase despite the physics that shows a rapidly diminishing returns for greenhouse effect as CO2 rises past where it is now.
      Can’t explain why a thermometer that measured 75 degrees in 1936 was really displaying 73 degrees but the same thermometer displaying 75 degrees in 2014 was really displaying 76 degrees but will swear up and down that it is true.

      Oh shit! Sorry Marty, I just described you!

      • Jason Calley says:

        Wizzum, your comment that “Can’t explain why a thermometer…etc” is absolutely spot on. Without a reproducible and justified method of explaining the changes to the temperature readings the self-proclaimed experts are no better than the crazy guy with the “World ends tomorrow!” sign.

      ……………..

      Marty the Gorebot is trying to invoking RULE 4 of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals —
      “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

      He mistakenly thinks we are wimpy Christians who are polite and turn the other cheek as our oppressors push us towards the edge of a fiscal cliff.

      He forgot about David and Goliath.

      Or the fact that some of us (like me) are not Christians.

        I’m used to dealing with low IQ 14, 15 year old high school students, (when I was a high school teacher)

        In comparison, Martin makes them seem rational.

    • sunsettommy says:

      Martin Smith,

      It is revealing that you have ZERO counterpoints to offer in reaction to Tony’s post.

      He used their own words,then shows the data that says they are wrong.How hard can that be for you?

      Tell us where Tony is wrong,if you can find it.

    • sunsettommy says:

      Martin,

      I can’t help notice that you made no attempt to address Tony’s presentation at all.A rational response would have been to attack or support the post,anything else is a waste of time,but most warmusts can’t even mount a minimal response that is on topic.

      Why is that a common problem for warmists the world over?

    My friend who is a fire fighter/EMT/water rescue specialist on the Dallas Fire Department. Wrote this just yesterday:

    “We had an all time record for rainfall now and still with a month to go. Several drownings as people drive through barricades and into the high water anyway. The temp has dropped effective today to the 30’s and 40’s and I’m loving it. The family dog, too big for a lap dog, curls up in our laps or at our feet.”

    If you ever take I-30 across lake Hubbard and see the red DFD boat, odds are he’s on it. The boat is used for boat fires, rescue, and recovery. They got a new sonar unit on it last year that allows them to image the bottom much clearer. As you pass over the causeway going west you go over a kind of Island with a big Pro Bass store quite visible on it. Off that shore you see they often find bodies stuffed into 55 gal. drums.

    • Jason Calley says:

      Gosh, rah! I bet that the number of people driving their cars into the water and drowning must be way higher today than it was 100 years ago. I guess that proves CAGW is real!

      • rah says:

        All it proves to me is there are more cars with morons behind the wheel but really not much has changed since I was stationed down at Ft. Sam Houston in San Antonio in the early 90s. They did the same thing back then. They know that flash flooding is common and one can see the washes and yet they keep driving into them.

        My friend that is a fire fighter is a trained geologist that used to work for Oil companies in the ME and N. Africa. He knows the deal about the climate change scam.

        • Jason Calley says:

          I used to live at Lake Ray Hubbard in Dallas, but now that I am in Florida I still see reports of idiots driving into the water. Had a case locally a few years back. We were having a heavy rain and someone got lost while driving around. They drove down a clearly marked boat ramp and right into the river. Stuff happens — especially to people who have stuff for brains!

          By the way, ask your Dallas buddy if he knows about the two bulldozers left on the bottom of Lake Hubbard.

        • gator69 says:

          Next to Katharine Hayhoe, Andrew Dessler, and Joe Romm, old SRV looks like a true climate scientist.

    “Above all, we have to save the world from its self-proclaimed saviours who brandish the threat of great chaos in order to impose their lethal impulses.”
    Pascal Bruckner, The Fanaticism of the Apocalypse

    Fanatics for Mother Gaia
    http://nofrakkingconsensus.com/2015/02/15/fanatics-for-mother-gaia/

    “The political left, he says (which includes most academics and journalists), has lost its way. “Instead of being outraged by poverty,” it’s now fashionable to be “offended by the comforts we enjoy.”

    “Those who used to champion the working class, who used to care if old people were warm and adequately nourished, have abandoned the field. Mother Gaia is “the new proletarian that has to be saved from exploitation.” She is the “paragon of all the wretched.”

    “Rather than urging us not to panic, mainstream politicians instead fan the flames. Anxiety has, in Bruckner’s words, “been elevated to the status of a political virtue.” We’re told we’re “at the edge of the precipice.” That our descendants will pay for our ecological sins. That every meal we consume and every journey we make is a transgression against Mother Nature.

    “This is serious. And real. And right now. Environmental activists, says Bruckner, mix “partial knowledge” with “absolute intolerance.” It’s as though we’ve all forgotten that many historical calamities had nothing to do with ecological collapse:

    “if the extremists drown out the moderates, the new sobriety will have the bitter taste of concentration camps and prisons. In the wrong hands, the best of causes can degenerate into an abomination.”

  9. The intellectual Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius (AD 121-180) must have foreseen Global Warmism. He said: “The object in life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.” I’m not sure that “deniers” are in the minority, but you get my point.
