Obama takes shots at Perry: Criticizes him as ‘a governor whose state is on fire, denying climate change’
Why is President Obama ‘anti-science’!? Climate Depot’s round up of the latest science on droughts rebukes Obama’s claims.
Rising CO2 causes unprecedented DECREASE in worldwide drought: ‘There has been an unprecedented decrease in world drought severity over the past 30 years’
Obama needs to read up on science! U.S. Government Scientist Disagrees with Obama on Cause of Texas drought: ‘This is not a climate change drought’ — Dr. Robert Hoerling, a NOAA research meteorologist, who served as the lead author of the U.S. Climate Change Science Plan Synthesis and Assessment Report: ‘The good news, Hoerling says, is that this isn’t global warming. ‘This is not the new normal in terms of drought. Texas knows drought. Texas has been toughened on the anvil of droughts that have come and gone. This is not a climate change drought’
‘Severe drought in 1934 covered 80% of the country, compared with 25% in 2011’
Shocking extremes in U.S. drought and flood conditions! … They occurred in the 1930’s, 1950’s, 1970’s, 1980’s… During the past decade, not so much’
‘Data from both U.S. and Canada show number of wildfires has declined over the past 40-50 years and that the number of wildfires was higher during the global cooling scare of the 1970’s’
Claim: Texas drought is the worst in history — ‘But in fact, Texas has been getting wetter, the current 15 year period is above average precipitation, and is much wetter than the 1950s’
NOAA Now Begins Time In 1999 — ‘What a complete crock. NOAA has detailed drought records going back to at least 1900’
Final Note: Obama is no stranger to silly ‘coincidences’ when it comes to global warming.
