Trenberth’s History Of Making Bold Claims Which Contradict Science

Real Science

In 2005, hurricane expert and National Hurricane Center Science Officer Chris Landsea, quit the IPCC over bogus claims Trenberth made – which were in direct conflict with the actual science.

January 17, 2005

Shortly after Dr. Trenberth requested that I draft the Atlantic hurricane section for the AR4’s Observations chapter, Dr. Trenberth participated in a press conference organized by scientists at Harvard on the topic “Experts to warn global warming likely to continue spurring more outbreaks of intense hurricane activity” along with other media interviews on the topic. The result of this media interaction was widespread coverage that directly connected the very busy 2004 Atlantic hurricane season as being caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gas warming occurring today. Listening to and reading transcripts of this press conference and media interviews, it is apparent that Dr. Trenberth was being accurately quoted and summarized in such statements and was not being misrepresented in…

Flooding strikes major roads in Ogun, Lagos, Nigeria

A very interesting story, thanks Yamkin. Shows the need to continually invest in infrastructures to cope with an ever changing climate…as our ancestors have done for millennia. We may get long benign periods but it’s sheer lunacy to believe that it will last or that we can keep it that way.

Only one new reservoir was built in London in the last 100yrs despite the droughts at the turn of the century. Building more makes better sense than throwing all our eggs in the perpetual ‘Mediterranean’ droughts scenario basket which has now morphed into whatever Slingo decides to link to more ‘moisture in the atmosphere’ (I.e. whatever weather we have that causes some degree of hardship – that’s it! Flooding? More of that. Cold? More of that. Heat? More of that. Saharan sands? More of that. Flying pigs? More of that…and it’s all your fault! )

The old way in years of plenty, years of famine – we prepared for the reverse. It makes more sense than believing that keeping CO2 under 450ppmv (I thought it was 350 – hence my somewhat ironic moniker) will avert a litany of apocalyptic scenarios that exist only in the minds of a doom cult who just happen to be paid by the prophesy.
