Over at RealClimate, in a post about Jim Hansen’s forecasts from the 1980s, a commenter calling himself “Victor” has bent over backwards to argue that the climate change we’ve seen already is just “natural.” He recently went so far as to say this:
Youngsters. Youth. Young adults, teens, tweens, even younger. My generation will suffer too, but as bad as it gets for us it’ll be far worse for them. And they’ll suffer the consequences longer than we will.
In response to the last post we got a super-insightful comment from “Jeff”:
“The level of Lyme disease diagnosis is more than anything, proportional to the publicity and near hysteria generated by shows like Dr Oz and Oprah.”
I know Oprah is powerful, but does she really have mind control over Maine’s physicians and the CDC? How did she muster the “publicity and near hysteria” for other tick-borne diseases like anaplasmosis and babesiosis?
The tick population has exploded in Maine over the last 20 years. The reason? Global warming.
Thirty years ago James Hansen testified in congress that man-made climate change (a.k.a. global warming) was underway. He forecast that the world would get hotter.
What happened since? The world got hotter.
Mother is the name for God in the mind of a child.
When mother and child come here because they hope for a good life in a great nation, not only will we not let them in, we will separate mother and child.
Is that how you make America great again?
Climate models do an excellent job reproducing how Earth’s temperature has changed over the last century and more. But when Judith Curry gives one of her interesting presentations, she seems determined to imply that they don’t.
