2012 US Drought Was Not Caused By Climate Change
The summer of 2012 was one of the hottest on record, America’s corn belt was parched dry, frequent comparisons were to made to the Dust Bowl disasters of the 1930s, but unlike the 1930s this modern drought was hailed as further proof of the hand of man influencing the climate.
The Boy King Obama, facing re-election in November 2012 immediately attributed the drought to Anthropogenic Global Warming, the usual Green suspects rallied around the king, who then received even more support for his theory from such Hollywood scientific luminaries as Bette Midler, the guy with the squeaky voice, what’s his name, oh yeah Matt Damon and Barbra Streisand to name
the most irritating but a few.
So the stage is set, the good and the Green have written the script, another weather event caused by CO2 and man, further proof of man made climate change, but was the 2012 US drought really caused by Anthropogenic Climate Change?
The answer is no according to scientists at 5 different Federal government agencies:
The summer of 2012 was the driest since record-keeping began more than a century ago, as well as one of the hottest, producing drought conditions across two-thirds of the continental United States.
Barack Obama and other prominent figures have repeatedly cited the drought as evidence of climate change. But the report released on Thursday by scientists at five different government agencies said that was not the case. The drought was “a sequence of unfortunate events” that occurred suddenly, the report said. The circumstances were so unusual the drought could never have been predicted.
“The Central Great Plains drought during May-August of 2012 resulted mostly from natural variations in weather,” the report said.
Those pesky natural variations are back and they always ruin a good warmist fear story, which always ignores natural variations as such, instead attributing them to human influences, natural cyclic events are treated the same way, because they simply do not fit the narrative of ideological or politicized junk science that underpins the Green Agenda.
But the scientists were clear in the report: “Neither ocean states nor human-induced climate change, factors that can provide long-lead predictability, appeared to play significant roles in causing severe rainfall deficits over the major corn producing regions of central Great Plains.”
As time goes by Obama’s settled science becomes less settled, when scientists employed by the Federal Government publicly disagree with the President about the causes of the drought, it shows clearly that Obama is just pushing a political agenda and attributing a natural event to help further his Green socialist cause.
There are some warmist scientists who say the conclusions of the report are wrong, if they believe this to be true then they should set about producing papers for peer review that support their hypothesis, for this is healthy and what science should always be about.
It is only science that is created to support a political ideology that can ever be settled, or subject to a consensus.
