Default Record Breaking Heat in Europe

Boy, too bad I don't beat the Global Warming Drum anymore. I'd have a field day with this.

Weather patterns.... fascinating stuff. To me at least.

Poor France. That will be some deadly heat as there aren't a lot of air conditioners over there.

Passive aggressive crazy, the few nutcases that still use religion to justify their stupidity concerning global warming are the same nut job conspiracy theorist's that started birther-ism, and seem to be welcoming the Russians into the Presidency.

Denial isn't a river in Egypt, it's what anyone that doesn't understand that things changed, and now, in the courts, the nut jobs are losing cases because lies aren't facts.

In 2011, renowned scientist Michael E. Mann sued a Canadian think tank that published an interview suggesting his work on climate change was fraud.

Eight years later, the Frontier Center for Public Policy—which often promotes climate change denial—apologized Friday and wiped the inflammatory interview from its website.

“(The apology) gives me faith in our legal system that truth can still win out, even in an era of ‘fake news’ and ‘alternative facts,’ ” Mann said in an email to National Observer.

Mann is best known as the lead researcher on a landmark 1998 paper on climate change. He and three colleagues reconstructed global temperatures going back about 500 years, producing a now-infamous sideways-hockey-stick-like graph of global temperatures that showed a sharp upswing beginning in the 1900s.

Mann has spent the two decades since the paper’s publication defending it and his reputation against climate change deniers—sometimes in court. He settled with the Frontier Center on Friday, but a related case in British Columbia and a similar one in the United States are ongoing.

In a message posted to its website, the Frontier Center apologized for publishing “untrue and disparaging” comments about Mann.

One example played out in real time Saturday when Milton MP and deputy Conservative Party leader Lisa Raitt—who has a master’s degree in environmental biochemical toxicology—tweeted a link to a Financial Post opinion piece that falsely claimed, against scientific consensus and a report released by the federal government in April, that there’s “no solid connection between climate change and the major indicators of extreme weather.” The story was authored by an economist who does not believe in climate change.

Soon after, climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe replied.

“Hi Lisa — I am a climate scientist,” tweeted Hayhoe, a Canadian working at Texas Tech University, linking to YouTube videos explaining the climate crisis. “The article you quote above is incorrect and dangerously misleading. For the sake of our shared country, please have the courage and the integrity to update your understanding.”

Hayhoe shared several more links and invited Raitt to reach out if she had questions. Raitt deleted the original tweet in short order and shared one of Hayhoe’s, saying it was “important to read this as well.”

Most people who deny climate change do so because they’ve received information that lines up with their beliefs from a source they trust, Hayhoe told National Observer.

Just the way things are, the science is settled, the ignorant rant.
Liberal authority comes from rational assessment of true facts followed by correct implementation of useful measures that result in a better outcome.
