AP: This ain’t global warming hell, but you can see it from here

Earlier I got a kick out of this AP article: US summer is ‘what global warming looks like’:

If you want a glimpse of some of the worst of global warming, scientists suggest taking a look at U.S. weather in recent weeks.

Horrendous wildfires. Oppressive heat waves. Devastating droughts. Flooding from giant deluges. And a powerful freak wind storm called a derecho.

Oh my God we’re all gonna die you guys… we’re all gonna die!

Come on now, don’t panic. It’ll be okay. Just calm down, and read on…

These are the kinds of extremes climate scientists have predicted will come with climate change, although it’s far too early to say that is the cause. Nor will they say global warming is the reason 3,215 daily high temperature records were set in the month of June.

Scientifically linking individual weather events to climate change takes intensive study, complicated mathematics, computer models and lots of time. Sometimes it isn’t caused by global warming. Weather is always variable; freak things happen.

For example, the Washington DC area can experience a derecho, like the one that went through on Friday leaving millions without power, about every four years. Believe it or not, Derechos and heat waves were recorded before gas powered leaf blowers, jet airliners and aerosol hairspray were invented.

But if all else fails, say it’s from man made global warming anyway:

Back to the AP’s “it’s global warming doing this but probably not” article…

After a while, the author relieved readers of any impression he might have given that the entire planet might be about to spontaneously combust by taking the “global” out of this most recent global warming scare:

And this weather has been local. Europe, Asia and Africa aren’t having similar disasters now, although they’ve had their own extreme events in recent years.

Can one of these intrepid climate alarmists please write a book about what the world will look like without man-made global warming just so we can recognize it when we see it?

Al Gore is of course all over the “new heat records” thing as further evidence of man made global warming. Not long ago he was telling us that increased heavy snowfalls were evidence of man made global warming. So were others. And they really wonder why people are confused?

Coming next from the AP: Global warming causing SUVs to go all Dukes of Hazzardare you prepared?
