Heat, Drought, And Unfathomable Ignorance …… Yeh, Heyhoe Again

So, there’s yet another climate catastrophic article at the Huffington post.

U.S. Warming Fastest At Two Corners As Average Temps Spike More Than 2 Degrees Since 1985

I like how HuffPo does that.  You see, that wasn’t the tease to make you click on the story.  This was…

‘HEAT AND DROUGHT ARE A VICIOUS CYCLE’

They’ll take you to the same story.  Mostly the article is babbling about the US getting hotter.  But, they note, some places are getting hotter than others and other places aren’t getting hotter.  …….. so much for “global warming”.  But, I digress.  This post isn’t about the imaginary temperatures.  That’s for another post.  I was more curious about the “droughts” and how they correlate to our temperatures.  Kathy was nice to oblige.

The Southwest warming, especially in the summer, seems to be driven by dryness, because when there is little water the air and ground warm up faster, said Katharine Hayhoe, a climate scientist at Texas Tech University in Lubbock.

“Heat and drought are a vicious cycle that has been hitting the Southwest hard in recent years,” Hayhoe said.

Because I’m lazy, I’ll just show you what NOAA has to say about this.  Here are our supposed temperatures in the US.

Sure enough, with the imaginary temperature stations, we’re getting hotter, according to the lunatics.

Oddly, our hydrological droughts are not increasing.

Yes, Kathy, a vicious cycle.  Apparently, according to the lunatics, the warmer we get, the less droughts we have.  Which stands to reason.  But, the lunatics hate reason, so they assert warmer causes droughts….. when, clearly, it is inversely related.  ….. according to the lunatics’ data.

    I see what is wrong.
    Katharine Hayhoe is stuck in 1999, you can see her waving on the hydrological droughts graphic above.

    So they are going to do a Jekyl Hyde type of contortion with the El Nino since it promises to bring more rain to that area.

    Sorry to change the subject, but can this clown be any more of an embarrassment to our country?

    …could unleash a monetary Tsunami of 1 trillion… (much better commentary)

    (if velocity of money goes up, pent-up inflationary pressure – in the form of the created money supply – could just turn into a torrent.)

    DAX up a little , Gold up more. Goody! BUT – though this should weaken the EURO it’s up half a percent! Things go crazy.

    What folded, spindled, and mutilated ‘data’ did they use to make that graph? The 1930s were the hottest decade in the US, in terms of living memory and thermometer records. I guess they hope that when my mother and her generation is dead that no one will remember the truth.
