Lefties are so predictable. If reality doesn’t fit the narrative, try to change the “reality”.
Hat Tip to News Busters.
With Washington, D.C. buried beneath at least 20 inches of snow, and with more in the forecast, common sense would suggest global warming alarmists look elsewhere to make the argument to raise awareness for their concerns.
But no, Dylan Ratigan thinks it’s ridiculous to suggest all the snowfall totals could cast doubt on the theory of anthropogenic global warming. On MSNBC’s Feb. 8 “The Dylan Ratigan Show,” Ratigan criticized those who would dare express misgivings about climate change based on the so-called “snowpocalypse.”
“Here’s the problem – these ‘snowpocalypses’ that have been going through D.C. and other extreme weather events are precisely what climate scientists have been predicting, fearing and anticipating because of global warming,” Ratigan said.
The thinking that warmer air temperatures on the earth, a higher air temperature, has a greater capacity to hold moisture at any temperature,” Ratigan said. “And then as winter comes in, that warm air cools full of water, and you get heavier precipitation on a more regular basis. In fact, you could argue these storms are not evidence of a lack of global warming, but are evidence of global warming – thus the 26 inches of snowfall in the DC area and the second giant storm this year.”
One of the commenters on News Busters pointed out:
Let me poke another hole in Ratigan’s statement. It’s illogical. The process is called Henry’s Law, which any high school chemistry student would know. The diffusion of a gas in any liquid is inversely proportionate to the liquid’s temperature. This is why a heated ocean outgasses CO2.
And more on topic, it is not temperature that holds moisture. Nor do you need a big temp difference to have the condensation of precipitation.
If only he had a clue.
None of the “global warming” and “man-made climate change” idiots have a clue.
The Left lives in some kind of alternate universe. They keep insisting this bogus, fabricated, politicized, “science” is “settled”, when Mother Nature proves otherwise. The best and brightest scientists will stick to the evidence and not try to pervert data to fit their politics.
I’ve already shoveled 5 fucking feet of “global warming” off of my driveway. I’m ready for REAL “global warming”: SPRING.
