Environment Virginia Links Extreme Weather Events To Global Warming | wusa9.com
Ch. 9 Excerpt: The Virginia report only goes back 60 years and that's what other experts say we have to be careful about. In fact,those who challenge global warming, including Marc Morano who is a former staff member of the U.S. Senate Environment & Public Works Committee, argue that other studies have found both temperature and precipitation were higher 1,000 years ago during the medieval warm period.
“Environment Virginia's attempt to link man-made global warming to rainfall events in Virginia or any specific region is the stuff of pure politics -- not science. The continental U.S. is less than 2% of the Earth's surface, so any attempt to draw precipitation trends from such a small area using only cherry picked timelines, is grossly misleading. Current data shows that global precipitation has undergone a slight decrease over the past 30 years. Global warming activists are desperately seeking to tie any and every weather event to global warming. Rest assured, your SUVs do not cause heavy rain.
"Other studies have found both temperatures and precipitation were higher 1000 years ago during the Medieval Warm Period. A 2012 peer-reviewed paper in the journal Nature Climate change found no correlation between Co2 and rainfall in India.”
