This stuff never ends, every day you can read the lies in the paper about climate change. This is a disgrace to science. Fortunately there are a few bloggers out there who are dedicated to doing real data and analysis. One is Paul Homewood, and if you look at his site, the most recent posts feature a debunking of the usual nonsense pimped by the mainstream media about climate change causing more extreme weather. This is a completely unsupported claim–we have more hurricanes, more tornadoes, more floods, more heat waves, etc. than ever before. No we don’t. We endure cycles of these events, just as we always have, and there is absolutely no data to suggest that it is any different now than it was a thousand years ago. We have recency bias and information gathering bias. We don’t have good records from more than 100 or 150 years ago, so we think what we see now, with our satellites and our weather stations all over the place and our made up statistical techniques and constant data “adjustments” represents some big change. It doesn’t. Meanwhile apparently all the climate terrorism, just like with CV-19, is apparently causing some people to have mental health issues. I don’t know how to respond to that other than to say, use your freaking brain and some common sense. Do you own work, don’t rely on “experts” ever. They are human beings, prone to the same emotional fallacies as everyone else and for climate scientists, this is their moment in the (ever-hotter) sun, and they are milking it for all it is worth by flat-out lying to the public.
