Climate change wake-up call

Posted on: September 11, 2010

Reference: Russia gets climate change wake-up call, Bangkok Post, September 11, 2010

In September 2005 climate scientists were preaching that Hurricane Katrina was caused by GHG emissions and that it was a “wake-up call” to the Americans to heed the Kyoto Protocol (BBC, September 10, 2005).  Five years later, with none of their forecasts about monster hurricane seasons in subsequent years bearing fruit, they have apparently seized on the Russian heat wave of 2010 saying that it was caused by GHG emissions and that it is a “wake-up call” to the Russians to take global warming seriously (Russia gets climate change wake-up call, Bangkok Post, September 11, 2010). Neither of these climate change alarms has a scientific basis. In fact, it was the absence of scientific evidence that forced the IPCC to withdraw its earlier assertion that global warming was causing weather to become more extreme.
