Bottom line top, NO.
Per Climate Depot:
Former Vice President Al Gore has weighed in on the record cold and snow in the U.S. “It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis,” Gore wrote on January 4 on Twitter. [Peak Stupidity's boldface]See, there's that after the fact explaining going on again. Man, why didn't I see that coming before I made my tropical vacation plans out of
These brilliant climatologists must have run that model long ago, since they expected this to happen. It's too bad this peer-reviewed literature didn't make it into that USA Today I stepped on leaving my hotel room last week.
Meteorologists, as mentioned here before, have to be somewhat correct, at least for 24 or 36 hours ahead, though any forecasts they make up past 4 days is complete rectal extraction. Still, there are screen shots now, and we can capture the bogus forecasts for the world to see.
Meteorologist Joe Bastardi on January 4, 2018: “This is flat out insanity and deception now. To tell the public that events that have occurred countless times before with no climate change attribution, is now just that, is not science, its witchcraft. NO PROOF AT ALL. Its climate ambulance chasing, nothing more.”I've said it before here on the Peak Stupidity blog, and I'll have to say it again, weather is not climate, and I don't pick every cold snap as a reason to blog about the stupidity involved in the whole Global Climate DisruptionTM hoax. It's just that the hypocrisy and lies of the people pushing this agenda have become so blatant lately.
Bastardi* added: “This has happened countless times before and it wasn’t global warming then and is not now. Solid use of past patterns predicted major early cold from OCTOBER! I have tweeted that dozens of times showing the analog years I used, No co2 then.”
Climatologist Dr. Roger Pielke Sr. also weighed in, explaining: “For those who claim USA/Canada nor’easter is stronger because of ‘global warming’, they apparently do not realize that it’s so strong because of especially strong horizontal temperature gradient in ["the"]troposphere. It ‘bombed’ because of [sic, "un"] usually cold air!” [I guess climatologists are not any better at checking their tweets than their counterparts, the cosmetologists.]
Well, yeah, if you take him literally, he's kinda right, right? I mean, snowfalls are a thing of the past for him. He's out on the coast of California... at sea level.
The Daily Caller quotes some scientists in the field quoting others to where I couldn't follow who's who, but it gets to Dr. Cliff Mass of the U. of Washington, who in addition to describing more actual climatology theory, relates this about the politics:
“And on a personal note, it is very disappointing that members of my profession are making such obviously bogus claims,” Mass said. “It hurts the science, it hurts the credibility of climate scientists, and weakens our ability to be taken seriously by society.” …I guess it's pretty obvious by now how seriously Peak Stupidity takes most of these people.
Well, the weather outside is frightful,
and the fire is so delightful.
I'd like for Al Gore to eat crow.
So, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
* He sounds like a reasonable guy, but what kind of name is that? Bastardi? Really?
** I didn't know that was even possible, till this guy.
