I am linking to an article on PowerLine:
While climate change advocates continue to insist weather is getting more extreme, that actual data does not show this. In fairness, I will repeat that the verdict on tornadoes and hurricanes is not in from the actual climate scientists. The media and activists are pushing this idea. (The IPCC chairman himself commented that tornadoes are not tied to climate change as far as current knowledge allows.)
My research bears out that the “extremes” are anything but extreme. The climate has always changed–and trying to say the changes are faster now than before is not born out by the data. There were times of very rapid climate change in the past, none of it tied to CO2 or human beings.
Check out the actual data. It’s tells a much different story than the one many people have been lead to believe is true. It’s important that you understand that things like Obama promising to tackle climate change has no scientific basis. It’s politics, pure and simple. The global climate is fine.
NOTE: I am unable to verify the source of the graph showing Northern Hemisphere snow extent. Plus, the units on the Y axis are not labelled. Until I can find the source and units, I am asking you disregard that graph. For information on the snow cover, Rutgers Climate Lab has data and graphs. As noted by a commenter, the graphs do not show “spring” snow extent as increasing as did the graph on Powerline.
