Quote of the Day

From the smartest man in American politics, Michael Barone on the continued closed mindedness of the Climate Change crowd.

(I tried to make similar points when I was on WPR a couple weeks ago.  My point was that those supporting complete compliance to climate change science are focusing on only one series of data points and not focusing on a wide variety of other factors; many that Barone points out here.)

Does this mean that global warming theories have been conclusively refuted? No. There’s a difference between weather (short-term) and climate (long-term). If carbon dioxide emissions were the only factor affecting climate, then global warming alarmist theories would indubitably be correct. But other factors seem to affect climate as well — like the sun, clouds, oceans and the interactions between them and other factors. Scientists don’t fully understand how these factors interact. It makes sense for policymakers and citizens to keep an eye out for possible climate change and to think about how to mitigate any negative effects. But for the moment let’s appreciate this summer’s moderate temperatures.

Last month the magnetic poles of the sun began to flip.  No scientist on the planet honestly knows what that will do to temperatures or climate on Earth.
