Climate Change Soon to be Called "Weather"
Obama loves to make the claim that "Climate Change" is real, and we must do something about it. Lets think about that for a second. Climate change is real? So he is saying the the climate of the earth is not steady state, but it actually changes overtime. Hmmm? Not going out on a limb much there. Just insert any other known scientific fact and claim it is real and we must do something about it. There were reasons that he did not call it AWG or "Global Warming". Lets face facts, the scientific train wreck that used to be called AWG (Anthropic Global Warming) or human caused global warming has simply lost its credibility in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary. Rather than admit that they were wrong or at least that it is way too early to act like we can predict the climate 100 years out or even really understand what is going on today, they just retreat and retreat until they find a claim they can defend. After it turned out that it was pretty difficult to scientifically link man to the climate, they just dropped the "A" in favor of the much easier to defend "Global Warming" hypothesis. Unfortunately for them, the earth stopped warming. No statistically significant warming in the last 15 years and global cooling since 2003 is hard to ignore. So they dropped "Global Warming" in favor of "Climate Change". So we are not blaming man anymore, and we don't even care in what direction the climate moves (warmer or colder). We just think that climate change needs to be stopped no matter what the cause is, according to Obama. Continuing along this line, it is just a matter of time before "Weather" replaces "Climate Change" as the term of choice. You can see this with the snow storms in Washington. This weather event is now considered proof both for and against "Climate Change", whatever that means. Washington DC broke its all-time 1899 record for snowfall this year. So 111 years ago the climate or "weather" was similar in Washington DC as it is today. If climate has anything to do with this winter and the extreme snow storms, then the climate is really not much different than it was 111 years ago. Even climate change is starting to get tough to defend. So why not just call it "Weather" or "Weather Change"? They can defend that one. We all know that the weather does change. As long as you make no claims as to why, I think they can safely make that claim. Weather is real and it must be stopped! Good luck with that one.
