Federal study concludes man-made climate change not cause of 2012 drought

When there was a drought last year in the Central Great Plains, Al Gore naturally and instinctively said it was related to man-made climate change crisis chaos.

Not so much, according to a multi-agency federal government study:

The historic drought that blazed across America’s corn belt last year was not caused by climate change, a federal government study found.

The summer of 2012 was the driest since record-keeping began more than a century ago, as well as one of the hottest, producing drought conditions across two-thirds of the continental United States.

Barack Obama and other prominent figures have repeatedly cited the drought as evidence of climate change. But the report released on Thursday by scientists at five different government agencies said that was not the case. The drought was “a sequence of unfortunate events” that occurred suddenly, the report said. The circumstances were so unusual the drought could never have been predicted.

“The Central Great Plains drought during May-August of 2012 resulted mostly from natural variations in weather,” the report said.

Natural variations in weather? Imagine that. The hits keep on coming.

Critics of the study say the government didn’t take into account the role of climate change in keeping the jet stream away and triggering the drought, and big oil profiteer Gore will undoubtedly agree.
