Extreme Ways

On the same day I read

New Study: ’2013 ranks as one of the least extreme U.S. weather years ever’– Many bad weather events at ‘historically low levels’

The Ragister reported

Iowa scientists: Spring floods, summer droughts more likely with global climate change

The Capitol Square Crapper quoted Gene Takle

“In the scientific community, we have debates on the details, But there are very, very few scientists who are active in studying climate science who deny the existence of the role of heat-trapping gases in raising our global average temperatures, and the fact that these heat-trapping gases are produced by humans.”

This group didn't get the memo

50 international scientists released a comprehensive new report on the science of climate change that concluded that evidence now leans against global warming resulting from human-related greenhouse gas emissions.

Six years ago, Takle didn't sound convinced himself about the Greenhouse Effect, err Global Warming, err Climate Change.

"If the climate is changing, you can't stop it over the next 50 years, What's coming is coming and we better be prepared to adjust to it."


Nearly ten years ago, Takle was part of a group that told us, global warming might not be as severe in the central United States as in other parts of the country because of a ‘hole’.

There's a hole alright and the scientific community is united in that fact
