Despite a decade and a half of no global warming, a top Obama administration scientist on Monday struck back at climate change skeptics who claim that record-breaking snowstorms this winter have undercut evidence of global warming.
“It is important that people recognize that weather is not the same thing as climate,” said Jane Lubchenco, head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Pardon me, Ms. Lubchenco…but you don’t know what you are talking about! I have it from the world’s foremost authority on climate change, Al Gore – the global warming guru himself – that Hurricane Katrina was caused by global warming. Is Al Gore wrong, or are hurricanes not weather patterns?
