    Lake-water infusion to delay Mississippi closing


    --------------------------------------------------------

    Droughts have always happened, but the shifting weather patterns generated under climate change conditions tend to exasperate and accentuate both the frequency and intensity of such events.

    When is the next Cat 5 Hurricane scheduled to hit NO?

    What about the next Hurricane Sandy in the Northeast, when does the model predict the next one?

    Drought = AGW

    Flood = AGW

    Sure, it's not science, but it's never wrong!

    Climate models do not make predictions, they merely project average climate states given projected influences and variables. All climate models tell us about hurricanes is that in a warmer world, storms will be more energetic than they are in a cooler world.

    They don't make predictions?

    Are you absolutely fucking certain?

    Climate models do not make predictions, they merely make projections of average climate conditions given the interaction of projected influences and variables.

    Projection - a reasoned estimate of future possibilities based on current or past trends and the detailed analysis of those trends.

    Prediction - a message that is stated or declared; a communication (oral or written) setting forth particulars or facts etc., prognostication, prophecy.

    There is a legitimate use of the term "prediction" in reference to science, but such is fraught with problems due to comman usage conflation of the term as synomous to mystical revelations and divine insight. Climate models do not predict the future. What they do is demonstrate what might result from a given change of climate variables based upon how well we understand the variables and how past changes in those variables have impacted the climate.

    s0n........I dont think you have enough propaganda threads going in this forum. Only 9 threads started by Trakkar on this page alone!!! Check it out......you cant make this shit up.


    If there is such "consensus" on the science, why is it the most radical of the environmentalists fall all over themselves posting up 10-12 new threads/day!!!

    Trakkar s0n..........you have some significant OCD stuff going on. When you make 100 posts/day about global warming, you got issues. Google "Effexor XR" and check it out.......discuss it next time you see your physician. Trust me........you'll enjoy life alot more. Trust me......Im in the field and can see it from 1,000 miles away.

    Semantic manipulation. People with a far left ideology are expert at it. What a load of bullshit

    .Prediction.........projection.............nobody cares.


    The operative term is "computer models"........more semantic bullshit. Next time you see any hurricane coming and are watching the computer models, check out the immense amount of variability for the track of the storm. Its a joke..........but based upon a "computer model".


    Who buys this shit? Only the hopelessly duped among us.:eusa_dance::eusa_dance::eusa_dance:
