Manbearpig lives (at least in AlGore’s mind)
We all thought that the myth of Manbearpig was finally settled after the Climategate. It showed what many of us have known all along but could not prove, that much of the Global Warming Climate Change Manbearpig data was suspect and most likely altered or skewed to a certain outcome.
But give some props to AlGore for his stubbornness. I am serial. He is still out there still trying to say any kind of weather phenomenon is because of Manbearpig:
“[T]he odds have shifted toward much larger downpours,” Gore said. “And we have seen that happen in the Northeast, we’ve seen it happen in the Northwest – in both of those regions are among those that scientists have predicted for a long time would begin to experience much larger downpours.”
This is preposterous on its face. We have had Nor’Easterns before and will have them in the future. Just as we will have some summers hotter than others and some colder. Just as the Sahara will one day be green again, as it has been several thousands of years ago.
The Climate of the Earth is not predicable and never will be, and all the computer models in the world could never replicate the variables that affect the climate and the temperature of the Earth. Nature is not something that you can put into a model and predict its outcome. And with the last 2 huge Earthquakes over the last few years changing the rotation of the Earth, we have no idea what effect that will have on the climate over the next decade or millennium.
