Fed Scientists: Man Not Responsible for California Drought

114

The climate change crowd is usually quick to flock around federally-sponsored studies, but the latest one – sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – isn’t experiencing nearly the same popularity. Could it be that liberals, so heavily invested in the religion of global warming, would deny evidence that doesn’t match the narrative? No, that surely couldn’t be. That would make them just like those evil Republicans!

Still, unless my eyes are deceiving me, that seems to be exactly what they’re doing. The report, led by Columbia University professor Richard Seager, says that California’s historic drought is not being caused by man-made global warming. Instead, says the study, the drought is due to natural weather patterns that have afflicted the state for many years. Seager went on to say that “multiyear droughts appear regularly in the state’s climate record, and it’s a safe bet that a similar event will happen again.”

Be that as it may, there’s no question that California’s current drought is one of the worst in modern history. Decrying the unusually high temperatures the state is currently experiencing, climate-change apologists like Michael Mann have dismissed the report out of hand. “The authors of the new report would really have us believe that it is merely a coincidence and has nothing to do with the impact of human-caused climate change?” asked the Penn State meteorologist in the Huffington Post. “Frankly, I don’t find that even remotely plausible.”

Marty Hoerling, a meteorologist for the NOAA, was quick to insist that the study was “by no means a final analysis, or final word, about the California drought.” Funny how when a nationally-sponsored study argues against the Earth-shattering doom of global warming – even on a specific basis – the leftists claim that the science isn’t settled. But when a report piles on more “evidence” of man-made global warming, there is nary a hint of controversy.

For his part, President Obama didn’t need any evidence at all to make the link between man-made global warming and the California drought. When he arrived in the state in February to deliver federal aid, he and his administration said the drought was an example of what we could expect across the country as climate change intensified. Even at the time, scientists backed away from the claim. Some studies have shown that California would actually grow wetter under rising temperatures, not drier.

While I agree with Hoerling that the science isn’t settled on the California drought, I would go a step further to claim that it isn’t settled on climate change as a whole. Studies like this one confirm that the left is more than willing to jump to conclusions on any weather disturbance they see. And as we’ve seen in their reaction to stories like Ferguson, liberals aren’t much for changing their minds even when all the evidence points to the contrary.

    The best thing for this country would be California disappearing under the ocean!

    1. Jarhead says

      Could a bunch of us all stand on one edge and have it tip over into the Pacific? (Like Guam?)
      Or we could sell the land of fruits, nuts, & flakes to Mexico ? CHEAP !

      1. Fedup says

        What do Nevadans do every time California has an earthquake?

        They stand on the border with crowbars!!

        1. hankthetank says

          Then they would go broke !!!

      2. bjones41 says

        Is it possible that maybe God is in this and is saying, ‘enough is enough’ of the sin that permeates California, and has brought judgment upon them?

        1. sandraleesmith46 says

          I think He’s been trying to make that point to America, and the whole world, for sometime now….notice how active the rim ofvfire is, and Iceland, as well as the ME quakes?

          1. Mark Lahti says

            I have always said, just as my father said, when all the fruits and nuts get to CA then the faults will just slip the west side of CA into the Pacific. Anyone owning property east of the faults will have ocean front property. However, as my uncle who lived in Hemit use to say, that first step will be a doosy with a drop of nearly 2000 feet.

      3. grama18 says

        We really don’t have to worry about selling it just. Just take our flag and leave. NOT many real americans left there. THEY keep electing Pelosi. I really don’t think she is a American.

        1. Florio Vino says

          She is not! She`s a Freakin` New York bitch married to a stupid idiot from the same place! But. He`s has or had MONEY!

          1. ongelofelijk says

            “Stretch Pelosi” is from Baltimore and not from NY!

          2. Shauna says

            “stretch” buawhahahaha! good one…

          3. bill says

            it don’t make any difference. they’re all east coast SCUM!!!!

          4. Juan TwoTree says

            Has…he is a known real estate developer/crook! PIGlosi sucked hard on Obongoloid to sole sourve a contract for the sale of U.S. Post Offices to the tune of $1 BILLION dollarrs in HIS pockets after all is said and done with banks, commissions, etc….he is as bad as she is.

          5. Glenn H says

            Pelosi and her husband own a huge amount of stock in Star Kist, the canned tuna giant, it’s headquarters are on an island, not sure which that is part of the USA!
            The last time Pelosi pushed for an increase in the minimum wage she purposely excluded the island where their money was invested; This was designed to give them a big price advantage against their competition!

          6. Florio Vino says

            It`s in Hawaii! Her Husband is also afilliated with the MAFIA` That`s where their Money came from, but that bunch keeps on getting elected term after term! Worked in San Francisco for about 30 years and Politically that TOWN IS and has been run by Idiots for 75 years! Beautiful, but politically incorrect!

        2. hankthetank says

          IF! she & the others are, they don’t know it !!!

      4. hankthetank says

        You don’t have to sell it! Obama,is bringing them here by Plane & by Train!!!

    2. ongelofelijk says

      and take the likes of Gerry Brown, Pelosi, Feinstein and Boxer with it.

  2. Fedup says

    i wonder what they say about all the rain California has been getting recently. Is this “superstorm’ hitting today caused by their “global warming” theory?

    1. sandraleesmith46 says

      Must be, obviously (sarc).

    2. disgusted says

      It is 55 degrees where I live, it is windy and it is raining. Our normal winters are have freezing temperatures, just because it is raining does not mean we do not have global warming…

      1. Fedup says

        Just because the temperature is up, which is caused by the air coming up from the south ahead of the cold front, that doesn’t mean you have global warming. We had below freezing temperatures for a high at the beginning of November for several days and a snowstorm that was the biggest this area has seen in years with only 6 inches. That was very unusual for that time of year. But that is just weather. Overall, the temperatures are cooling, not warming. The earth goes through these hot and cold cycles. It is all normal. It happens all the time so you don’t need to start planning your end of times just yet.

        1. hankthetank says

          It all depends on witch way the jet stream blows!! And i am not talking about a jet plane!!( Too; Disgusted )

          1. Fedup says

            I know exactly what he is talking about because we are getting the winds with the rain expected to hit tonight into tomorrow. The winds are coming from the south, of course it’s going to be warmer. We are in the 50’s also. Winter hasn’t even started yet. Weather is weather. You can’t control it and it’s always going to change. Global warming is only putting money in the pockets of those who are promoting it most.

          2. Mark Lahti says

            I’ve always said this. Any controversy when you look at the end game is always about the money. Follow the money and you will always find out who or what is behind the bs.

      2. Juan TwoTree says

        PUKE!! Of course, you live in FLORIDA!

      3. Mark Lahti says

        Warming – Cooling Cooling – Warming All things that will happen over and over again for all time. It is the nature of the world and the universe. To contend that man has any kind of a significant influence on these treads is egotistical at best and is totally ignorant for anyone to believe. Why this is even an issue is unbelievable. The issue that is at the center of this whole controversy is that man is causing it. Get over it. It has always happened and will always continue to happen. It would be like somehow or another that man is responsible for the sun rising in the morning and setting in the evening. Grow up, get a life, and find something real to talk about.

    3. hankthetank says

      They will make up an excuse, if you don’t believe me, read below:( disgusted )

      1. Fedup says

        I know. When everything is pointing to a cool down in the earth, they still want to believe the global warming bs. The geologists can go back so many years now and see the cycles that the earth has gone through. The impact man has made has been minimal as far as carbon and greenhouse gasses. The earth needs carbon dioxide to survive. If we stop producing it, we are doomed. I watched a program that explained the impact carbon dioxide has on the earth and why we need to stop the global warming theorists. The ozone layer has been “healing” but not because of anything we did. The sun plays a huge role in the cycles and the gasses the earth emits. It was way interesting. I should have written down what the program was called and what channel it was on.

    Keep listening to the nigger in the Whitehouse.

    1. dondehoff says

      “WiSE GuY”. keep it civil. Life and death issues are involved and you make off-subject obnoxious and racist comments. I am 82 years young, have served 20 years in the military and 30 years in civilian endeavors and I personally have found that about 80% of the Republicans, Democrats, law enforcement, all religions (except Islam) and Negroes (and all races), are very good people. (The Muslims, in my opinion, are grossly misinformed.

        hey there don when you act like a derogatory racial stereotype you get called a derogatory racial stereotype. he’s just calling a spade a spade

  4. WhiteFalcon says

    “Columbia University professor Richard Seager, says that California’s historic drought is not being caused by man-made global warming. Instead, says the study, the drought is due to natural weather patterns that have afflicted the state for many years.” The average rational human being that thinks for him/herself says, DUH!!! It is about time that some of those eggheads woke up.

    1. 7papa7 says

      I wonder when he will be fired for telling the truth? We have seen it happen before, when you buck the agenda driven so called scientist with facts they are retaliated against. The last thing the socialists/communists want is truth, they are ONLY interested in their perverse agenda.

    2. Florio Vino says

      THANK YOU SIR! YOU ARE SO RIGHT! BUT, THOSE NUMBNUTS` WILL never back off on their lies! THEY`LL JUST COME UP WITH MORE. Was BORN in California in the 1920`s! It happens every few years! sometimes it repeats in series of maybe a couple of years! IT`S FREAKIN`NATURE AND hISTORICAL FACT!

      1. WhiteFalcon says

        Liberals have trouble understanding facts and logic. It is just beyond them.

        1. Terry Hamblin says

          I agree WhiteFalcon, can you imagine a State with the following dingbats not only in office but guaranteed to be there until they die:

          LA Times Quote of the day – priceless

          Quote of the day by Dianne Feinstein…….

          Dianne Feinstein: “All vets are mentally ill in some way and government should prevent them from owning firearms.”

          Yep, – she really said it on Thursday in a meeting in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee…. and the quote below from the LA Times is priceless. Sometimes even the L.A. Times gets it right.
          Kurt Nimmo: “Senator Feinstein insults all U.S. Veterans as she flays about in a vain attempt to save her anti-firearms bill.”

          Quote of the Day from the Los Angeles Times:

          “Frankly, I don’t know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I’m not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we’re Number One. There’s no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on ‘ Macbeth ‘. The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don’t know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words.”

            Here’s another example of the “NUT CASES”

            Somewhat scary these days…in the 1800’s and early 1900’s they would
            institutionalize these type persons (Pelosi) to keep them mainly from harming themselves.

            Now…they give meds and let them roam Congress and diverse places to harm us!Did you read about Nancy (with the sunken eyes and blank zombie stare) Pelosi?

            Minority Leader (Liberal) Nancy Pelosi had to be removed from the House Floor by the Sergeant at Arms, after breaking protocol and charging across House Floor twice, while wagging her finger. Even Democrat Nita Lowey of NY was caught on mic saying “What is she doing?” This is not an isolated case for Pelosi.

            aun-tv.com/2014/08/another-pel……Hollywood Actor James Woods has publicly raised the issue of Pelosi being mentally ill after watching her House meltdown. “Pelosi may actually be mentally ill.

    California, is like a bowl of cereal. Take out the fruits and nuts, and all that’s left are flakes.

      Cute. But I like it.

  6. amazed108 says

    Michael Mann, where have I heard that name before? Oh yeah that was the guy caught fudging the numbers to fit his Global Warming Model before they changed the name to Climate Change. Apparently he is still getting grant monies from the Feds even though he was discredited as a scientist. Remember 97% of the scientists who receive grants from the government to study climate change believe that the science is “settled”.

  7. Mark Clemens says

    …….See Grandpa is right, it’s called WEATHER!!!
    Enough about the weather. I’ve got BIGGER news.
    If you are UNDER 80 and drawing ANY kind of PENSION. In That 1600+ page Bill congress has to vote on Today, to avoid government shut down. Is a clause to REDUCE PENSION ENTITLEMENTS. It appears that a lot of pension funds may go belly up in the next decade.
    If you plan in drawing a pension after 15 years, forget it. If you have money in a 401K retirement plan, get your money out while you can.
    Congress is going to take rules out, that have been in place for 40 years, so your company can put less money in their retirement funds. We the People are getting screwed royaly.
    In my opinion this is a result of our jobs being shipped over seas. Less companies state side means less people pay into pension trust funds.
    We need to impose TARIFFS to protect what is ours!!!! Is your retirement and golden year future worth saving a buck or two on products? Going along w/the UN’s WTO trade policies will make us live like a third world country. These politicians are squandering our futures we work hard for, with little regard to our lives. After Citizens United allows unlimited campaign donations, why should they care about the “Little People” . If you earn less than a million a year, you are one of the “Little People”

  8. Florio Vino says

    THESE DRY WINTER/FALL OCCURRENCES HAVE OCCURRED IN CALIFORNIA, FOR Centuries, The records show it just happens. The Global Warming Conspirators are just using it to justify their INSANE theories that it exists. Earthquakes are frequent there also and there are several faults that move frequently, in varying amounts. I`d like to blame these occurrences of NATURE on the fact that the OKIES fled their State and repopulated California and have taken it down to lowest levels followed by the influx of ILLEGALS FROM THE FAR EAST AND INDIA. If you take all the factors into consideration. Obviously the state of my Birth is just weighted down with peoples from everywhere, and that has created these, not climate change, but overloaded populations that only contribute to situation to a greater extent. OTHER States have similar problems, but not to the EXTENT THAT CALIFORNIA led by the FAMILY OF THE BROWNS INCOMPETENT DICTATORIAL CRIMINALS, that have occupied the office of Governor of that once fine state, DOWN TO THE LEVELS THAT HAS NOW BECOME!

    1. ikihi says

      man made global warming is a massive hoax.

      1. dondehoff says

        Ihihi, I wish what you said was true, but our changing of “the forests of the world” to agriculture and grazing lands and covering many square miles with cities and factories with buildings, musts have an effect. Ditto for the pollution of the oceans. I have seen photos taken by the Navy and our “”Oceanic” people “way out in the middle of nowhere”, where one can almost walk on the garbage floating on the ocean. One does not have to be scientist to see that has to reduce the reflectivity of the ocean water which increases its ability to absorb and retain heat. I have heard even a one-tenth of a degree in ocean temperature “drop”significantly affects its ability to generate humidity that enables clouds to form. Also, I live in Colorado where everyday, one can see dozens of mile-long coal carrying trains from Wyoming, heading in “all directions”—we have yet to come up with a cost effective way of stopping the pollution from the burning of that coal. It has been estimated there are thousands of unmanaged “holding ponds”, where just a relative small amount of the “stuff” has been contained—and many of these ponds are over a hundred years old and are leaking into our potable water supplies. Please, read my other lengthy post on this very critical issue. Yes, we are defecating in our “front yards”—and world-wide, it is going to get far worse, especially with uncontrolled immigration.

        1. Shauna says

          Are you aware that the founder of Greenpeace walked away from the GW hype??? As with ANY weather patterns, it’s a eb and flow….what melts will refreeze, what is frozen will melt, this is called weather….By all means explain WHY the ice shelves are larger then ever before? explain why it went from global warming, to climate change to polar vortex? They can’t even get that right. Have you spoken to a REAL scientist?

          1. bill says

            the non useful fish were not the reason Kalifornias water was released into the delta. it was to save piglosis’ husbands’ SALMON FARMS in the sacramento delta. not the delta smelt.

          2. hankthetank says

            The reason they gave was Smelt fish! I have lived in CA sense 1943, and I haven’t seen,a spotted Owl – Smelt fish or a Turtle not even a rattlesnake for 17years, & i live in the Mojave desert!! I grew up in the Central Valley of CA. ( Tulare Co. )

          She, ST. Mary, took it when she left! We use to have a lot of things, even a space program,before Obama came alone,now we don’t even have a job,or Insurance,BUT we do have a lot of immigrants!!!

    2. ongelofelijk says

      The critical California I dare say is in a way self inflicted and originated in the early 20th. century where scientists and decision policy makers totally disregarded the management and associated infrastructure implementation of the Colorado river with their absurd irrigation schemes. I can write book volumes on this but..

      Don’t dare blame, Okla- Ark- MO- Tenn, for what the Communist Democrats have built!!!

  9. Stan Hoffman says

    Deuteronomy, 11:16-17 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and ye worship them; And then the Lord’s wrath be kindled against you, and He shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the Lord giveth you. This country has turned its back on God for to many years. We worship everything but the Creator. Obama and his administration as well as the legislative branch and the judicial branch that is selling us out is because the heart of the people is wicked ever and has turned to false gods. Even Hollywood named a show American Idols. Idolatry is the worship of false gods. Our nation worships celebrity idols , sports idols music idols instead of god. The liberals called Obama their messiah. That’s the worship of a man instead of God. You’ll find that in Romans 1:18-32. This nation is on a collision course with sever judgment. But it looks like the whole world is going to be severely judged at the same time. WWIII is on the horizon. The central bankers of the industrial nations started threatening China with WWII in 2008. The one world government is coming soon. The pope is working to include the islamist into his world church. Jesus spoke of the signs of the end times, and many of those signs are upon us today. Jesus also said men will talk about them but they still won’t get their hearts right. I would have not thought that I would see the Rapture in my time, but now I do. We’ve had two blood moons this year and we shall have two more next year. History has shown that a blood moon, often spoken of in the bible, is followed by some event on the Jewish people. The last time their were four blood moons the Catholic Spanish inquisition in which they murdered many Jews and Christians started. We have seen many major events in Israel, the US, and other parts of the ME this year. Look for more next year. Earthquakes 6.0 and higher have quadrupled this year. I could go on and on. This is not climate change, its the wrath of God which is about to be unleashed. Jesus is Lord.

    1. wdcraftr says

      Stan, I believe there were 4 blood moons in 1948, and also in 1967, Israel’s getting of it’s land back, and the 6 day war.. These current ones might signal the Psalm 83 war, an invasion of Israel by Jordan, Syria, Gaza, Lebanon, and Egypt.. Or maybe the building of the new Temple, but I believe it’s more likely wars/troubles/tribulation.. Also there is a full Solar eclipse in the middle of the 4, March 20, I believe, and it is probably a warning for the Gentiles, the whole Earth.. This so called climate change is caused, I believe, by Planet X coming into our galaxy. Something is causing all the Earth’s quakes, volcanos, sink holes, methane in the ocean, disturbances of our other planets, and weather extremes.. And it is Not man, although it could be partly the Govt. trying to control the weather, chem trails.. Rev. 6th and 7th Seals could definitely be caused by a passing of, Planet X, Niburu, Planet 7X.. Whatever the cause, God is in control, and he tells us the ending.. Jesus wins, and Satan and his followers Lose..

      1. Stan Hoffman says

        wdcraftr, I read from John Haggle that the last 4 blood moons was several hundred years ago and that a single blood moon occurs approximately once every 18 months. He did mention those events following a blood moon also. But I don’t doubt your word, for I haven’t researched it in depth. At any rate, something is brewing. ISIS is chanting “remember Dibiq.” Dibiq is their major battle that is suppose to usher in their so called messiah. The US is poised for a big fall. Current oil price declines will eventually destabilize the ME as their economy is virtually dependent on oil revenues and they won’t be able to keep their people in money. Russia is also heavily dependent on oil revenue. So the world is poised to go to war. I’ve heard these events are the birthing pains of the world about to receive the return of Christ. He said it would get bad in the last days. Of course the Rapture and the 7 years of tribulation must happen before He returns to establish His kingdom on earth. I hope to have my heart right when the Rapture comes. I don’t want to go through the tribulation period. Hope to see you in heaven. Jesus is Lord.

        1. wdcraftr says

          In spite of what so many preachers are saying, I still don’t believe the 1000 year millennium will be on Earth. Also the 1000 years is mentioned only once, that in Rev. 20, and may be just figurative, as1000 is mentioned several other times in the Bible, and it was always just symbolic as well, meaning a long time.. Also in the context of where it is mentioned in Rev. 20, the other words used in those verses are symbolic as well, like dragon, serpent, etc. So why wouldn’t all the words used by John there be symbolic? So I see Jesus establishing his Kingdom, and touching down, after the binding of Satan is done, and he is loosed for a little while.. It makes NO sense that God would rapture us, only to put us back on Earth with sin for another thousand years.. Ridiculous! We will Reign with Christ, Not Reign Over people on Earth.. We may have tribulation caused by man that we are here for, but the Great tribulation, God’s wrath, the 7th Seal, the Trumpets, and Bowls/vials, we are kept from the Time Of.. Probably raptured to the house with many rooms Jesus has built for us. Close the door, and wait a little while, until the Indignation is over.. Maybe a wedding also?

          1. Stan Hoffman says

            wdcraftr, no one understands every thing written in the bible. So while some believe in the Rapture, others don’t. I make no judgment against anyone who does not believe as I do. As long as Jesus is Lord of their life, that’s all that matters. As far as the use of 1000 years, God says that a 1000 years is as one day to Him. Just exactly what that means I do not know. But God is infinite in all things, man is finite, therefore we can not fathom all things about God. Jesus did speak of coming in the clouds and the Angels shall sound the trumpets to call His people to Him. He said He would come as a thief in the night. A thief gives no warning of his coming, so neither will Jesus. He also said that when He calls us that we are not to go into the house to get something to go with, if we do we shall not be taken. He also says that we are to be vigilant and with our hearts ready to meet Him or we shall be left behind. Those teachings are some of what those who believe in the Rapture are basing their belief on. The bible does speak of the second coming of Christ to establish His rule on earth. At that time His children shall no longer be of the corruptible mind of the sinful nature, but have the uncorruptible mind that God created Adam and Eve with. It is a mind that sees God perfectly and understands His will. Thus His children shall no longer be subject to the flesh which is the sinful nature. Bear in mind that I do not claim what I’ve said to be the perfect truth, as I do not posses the perfect knowledge of the scriptures, only Jesus held that knowledge and wisdom. Jesus is Lord.

      2. dondehoff says

        “wdcraftr”, all of those celestial “events” were placed into being when the “big-bang” occurred and we have known for several hundred years when they are going to be in a position to be seen or to affect us. And you obviously still don’t accept the science that these celestial and geologic events are the normal course of the universe in its expanding and aging process. Now, due to the size of the universe, it is obvious that there are celestial objects in orbit that make their presence known only eons apart, most long before recorded history—it is difficult for anyone, no matter how learned, to wrap their minds around a million or billion years. Any changes, yearly or even centuries apart, are so imperceptible, they are neither recognized nor recorded. There may be and probably are, now unknown, “celestial objects” out there that in the future will either strike the earth or come into close proximity and perhaps have a significant but a none catastrophic outcome. We know, there were such significant events when the dinosaurs “disappeared”. And no, a god is not in control, this is purely mathematics and time at work. We are all blessed with the ability to, on a clear night, stand out and see much evidence of celestial objects that have “lived” their preordained life spans—which in most case have been millions of years. With Hubble and now newer telescopes, we are going to see many factual “issues”, that up until now where just theoretical or just awaiting our ability to see them. Like Stephen Hawking and Stuart Kauffman said, (paraphrased) “there is room “out there” for a god, but such an entity does not and never has gotten involved in the day to day mundane happenings with mankind.

        1. wdcraftr says

          I was not talking about day to day happenings, but about Planet 7X due to arrive soon, and about Rev. 6th and 7th Seals.. God can see forever back, and forever forward, so he knows every detail of every universe, and of course, he created it all.. God is constantly involved in everyday things, for his Holy Spirit is in us every second of every day, and Angels are around, and God oversees it all.. He does, however give us Free Will, so we can believe or not, sin or not.. He is our Father however, so sin will Not go unpunished.. It sounds like you are Not a God fearing, bible believing Christian of great faith, and I’m sorry to hear that..

    Correct, not man-made, just our governments’ way of gouging the American masses for more money!!!!

    1. snowyriver says

      No one could even imagine that the dams on the Colorado river would not be enough to support California citizenry for their water needs.

  11. ConservativeSenior says

    1) How can anyone believe “federal” scientists? 2) Desalinization plants can be constructed along California’s very long coastline. Of course that would solve a problem and create jobs: both of which are against the liberal agenda.

    1. SeRiOuSLy!!?? says

      i said the same thing back when i lived there in the 90’s, since we spent so much building them in the middle east for the terrorist….i mean arabs!!

  12. ikihi says

    bull-crap! the democrats caused this drought by letting in so many illegals and also letting developers build non-stop, not to mention increases in urban density. All supported by the democrats. Democrats caused this problem.

    1. Mark Lahti says

      You sound as crazy as all the democrats. What could one possibly have to do with the other? Weather and political affiliation? What are you thinking? This is not about mans influence on the weather. It is about weather being influenced by all things natural. The sun, the orbit of the earth, and so on. Get over it and start to talk about real things that matter.

  13. disgusted says

    Yes, we should continue to pollute! This heavy rain in California proves that we can! We can continue to be consumers and continue to pollute this earth the way we have been doing of the last 200 years, in fact I think we should increase the polluting and prove everyone of those liberals wrong as I am convinced by this rain in California that polluting has no impact on our weather at all.

    1. dondehoff says

      “dis…….”, you are either grossly ignorant or just a trouble maker. What you are advocating, is tantamount to defecating in your own living room or on main street. Do your homework, or at least ask Google—-in this day and age there is no excuse for being ignorant (which only means you don’t have the “facts”). Apply this “world-wide issue” just to your house and property or the community in which you live—does that ring a bell?

      1. disgusted says

        As ignorant as that article is. Federal scientists are paid by our government, our government is run by corrupt politicians that are paid by the major contributors to our pollution problems. Ignorant are the people that believe what they say.

        1. disgusted says

          I live next door to a mining company. They do as they want using their money as their weapon and as their right to pollute regardless of the consequences that it may have on, not just me but our entire neighborhood and it’s wildlife. They scare the hell out of all of us who live here. They pollute our air with chemicals and they pollute our water with the same. If we let these polluters do as they wish pretty soon none of us will be able to breathe the air nor drink the water but the polluters will have fat wallets and that is all that matters to them.

    2. Jarhead says

      You call six inches a rainfall? I’ve seen 17 inches fall in Houston, TX in one day. And no body died, no body drowned. Of course Texan’s are smart enough not to build in avalanche areas.

  14. disgusted says

    Damned right! We can pollute this earth all we want because it is raining in California!! This just shows us that there is no climate change..??

    Chemical spills, algae blooms, and drought. It was a bad year for America’s water supply.

    What Americans Learned This Year From Being Unable To Drink Their Water

    Some of the biggest environmental stories of the year came from our taps.

    THINKPROGRESS.ORG

    1. Juan TwoTree says

      You got it Mr. Peepers! 🙂

  15. trugrits says

    I guess man draining the reservoir feeding the valley farmers didn’t have anything to do with the drought either. Global warming perfect example of brainwashing the sheople.

  16. MarcJ says

    There is an 11-12 year solar cycle here in the American West, now old
    about 60 million years. First there is a 3-4 year cycle of drought, followed by
    a 3-4 years of normal precipitation, then followed by 3-4 rainy years; thus
    averaging 11 years. In the 1970’s California governor “Moonbeam”
    Brown organized, in the 3rd year of drought, a “Drought Control
    Administration”, hiring about 1500 government unionized employees
    headquartered in Los Angeles,
    occupying 3 floors of the then new Department of Water and Power building.
    They ordered large bronze plaques with inscription “DROUGHT CONTROL
    ADMINISTRATION” for their offices and fixed those on each floor. Immediately
    they ordered stoppage of weekend car washing in private homes, accompanied by
    heavy fines if caught by their roving inspectors – among other measures such as
    ordering all new homes to be equipped by water-preserving flushes and shower
    heads. All “large” private gardens were given maximum amounts of
    water allowed for their sprinklers; sprinklers must be put in function only
    during the night. Water rates were introduced punishing consumptions larger
    than they determined. All measures were enforced by large fines. Then came the
    wet cycle the following year; what to do? Basins and reservoirs were
    overflowing; rivers were breaking their control dams. I visited back then those
    offices and saw big cartons taped over those bronze plaques, with hastily drawn
    new title: “Flood Control Administration”. I’ll bet you that now,
    again under the tender care of the same Governor Brown, this new state department
    has 15,000 unionized employees under the Department of Global Warming
    Administration, occupying 10 floors of that same building (unless Brown
    spent more deficit money to build them a new, energy-efficient building). Just
    recently, Moonbeam Brown issued 876 new regulations in a single day – all aimed
    at suppressing that invented global warming and “saving” the environment. His
    government employees unions are in complete command of that bankrupt state.

  17. Linda Sills says

    This whole climate change/global warming crap comes from the United Nations Agenda 21. The biggest lie since Hitler said it is all the Jew’s fault. Do the research, and see how pervasive and evil this scam is.

  18. Rick Rogers says

    So where did all the water go then. Is there a hole at the bottom of the lakes that its leaking down into? If the head line was not so stupid.. The Water was used up by HUMANS. So the reserves are gone because of HUMANS.. and last time I checked anything Done by HUMANS was Considered MAN MADE.

  19. Edweirdness says

    Clearly, Washington and Sacramento wont want to read this, but, any clear thinking individual will understand these facts. California and Washington have both been complicit in exacerbating the drought in our nation. Indeed, unconstrained immigration and lax enforcement of our immigration laws have, without doubt, played a much larger role in the scope and duration of drought, than global warming.

    Overpopulation, congestion, urban sprawl, crumbling infrastructure, diminishing resources and opportunities, overcrowded schools, hospitals and jails, lack of affordable housing, crime, pollution, vanishing farm land and green space, the out of control carbon footprint, water and energy shortages, depressed wages, increased tax burdens, the marginalization of American workers, students, taxpayers and voters, the balkanization of our communities, the decline in quality of life, are all the result of unconstrained immigration and lax enforcement. Regardless of how the Media, the Obama Administration, the Cheap labor and mass immigration interests try to spin the narrative on illegal immigration, the fact remains that too many people competing for the same limited resources and opportunities IS NOT, NEVER HAS BEEN, and NEVER WILL BE sane, sustainable social, economic, or environmental policy!

    Fresh air, clean water, and wide open spaces are what made America great, and they aren’t making any more of these! Why does conservation always focus on punishing America’s citizens, rather than a pragmatic solution like reducing demand through enforcement of our immigration laws?

  20. dondehoff says

    I admit I am not an expert on the climate, but I have serious reservations about the California draught. We do not have the necessary expertise and accurate historical records yet to justify that opinion. Even a one-tenth of a degree of change in ocean surface waters can halve a significant effect on evaporation and the “overhead humidity”, which in turn controls cloud cover, which in turn converts to “rain and snow. which in turn is further affected by the changing and rapidly moving “barometric” readings, which in turn affect the location and speed of the “jet stream”.—-and there are dozens more “which in turns”, such for cloud cover, and pollution of the ocean, which in turn also affects the reflective quality of the surface, which in turn affects the Suns ability to warm the ocean, which in turn constantly starts or continues another “weather pattern”. Less obvious are geological sub-ocean changes caused by earthquakes, undersea volcanoes, or slow moving “plate-tectonics” the latter, due to their very slow movements, may or may not affect the also slow moving ocean currents, which in turn, due to their slow but steady “snake-like” movements throughout the world, also make random changes in the weather. I think the best we can hope for is, by placing temperature recording devices at thousands of land, sea and satellites locations, we can eventually build historical records from which we can make reasonable forecasts. Let us hear from the “experts”. I have a thought—can we influence weather on the West Coast, by “seeding” the on-shore flows of both high and low pressure weather cells, perhaps by using existing fire fighting ships with their high pressure water “guns”. Do we know how much sea water we would have to “pump into the air”, (and far enough off-shore to eliminate the “salt” problem), to increase the water content of the clouds, which nature then would “dump” in the usual places?

    1. bill says

      the only reason the droughts affect any thing is the fact that evirowackos and snail darter saviors along with the red legged frog lovers kept states from building reservoirs to contain the rainfall and water runoff for a situation like we have today.

  21. Shauna says

    Well….No shit sherlock, it’s called WEATHER, you bunch of dumb retards running around spewing BS! The only “warming” is coming from the shit that flows out of a liberals mouth…( PISSED OFF TODAY!)
    *move along, nothing to see here* 😉

    1. Fedup says

      That’s ok. You can have as many tantrums as you like. You are stating the obvious but in a way that makes you want to add the “DUH” at the end of your comment for you. hehehe.

      1. Shauna says

        HAHAHA! thanks….

  22. sandraleesmith46 says

    Humans DO NOT impact climate changes, as individual, groups, or even a whole species. That’s simply what EARTH does! Libs, get over it; you aren’t that powerful or important. Only God can influence climate, and effect changes, from without the Earth.

  23. dinkerduo says

    Every time someone CLAIMS that there is *global warming–or climate change*we should give them the facts—that this whole thing is ONLY SO *THEY* CAN TAX US FOR OUR GLOBAL FOOTPRINT—ESPECIALLY BUSINESSES—LIKE COAL!!!
    IT’S A SCAM–PERIOD!! We can’t be that arrogant to think that *THE HUMAN RACE* is capable of controlling that amount of what MOTHER NATURE does when we can’t get our kids to pick up their rooms!!
    THIS IS A SCAM—IT’S TIME FOR A PUBLIC HEARING WHERE THESE ASSES ARE PUT IN THEIR PLACE! THE ONLY THERMOMETER THE EARTH HAS IS THE *SUN*!!! And not even ole Al can control THAT!!!
    Thanks Mr. Seager!

  24. Chuck Damon says

    On a related note, when did they start naming snowstorms? Is that an attempt to make them seem abnormally severe, due, naturally, to AGW?

  25. hankthetank says

    They are trying to change your mind,not there’s! their agenda is to tax the air we breath! they just want our money on tax our air for there agenda 21, for the NWO!!!

  26. Lorraine E says

    Weather world wide is created – watch geoengineeringwatch.org. All developed countries have been controlling weather for over 50 years. Look up! What do you see? Chemtrails which are mostly aluminum, barium, and strontium. They aren’t contrails from air carriers which are mostly water vapor and dissipate within a short period of time. Factor in H.A.A.R.P. to move the metallic clouds anywhere they so desire and you have the beginning of weather control which has been perfected to a very high degree well over the past fifty years. The global warming/cooling/change lie is being advanced as an excuse to tax and further control the people world wide.

    1. Fedup says

      They sometimes do cloud seeding in order to produce more rain or snow in the Sierra’s.

  27. hjjusa says

    If the feds said it, it probably isn’t true

  28. madmemere says

    California is getting enough rain right now; it should “cure” the drought problem for a little while, UNLESS the “sustainable development/Agenda 21” crowd decides to keep the northern rivers shut down because of the (un) endangered “delta smelt”- -that you can find “everywhere” in North America!

  29. FloridaJim says

    I believe nothing from the Federal Government even their denial of global warming they are “stupid” to quote Gruber.

  30. redneckwithskills says

    I’m not sure this is even taught in public school anymore but, why don’t we figure out what caused the ice age and the death of the dinosaurs. Isn’t this really where oil comes from. Doesn’t the world continue to go round and round regardless of these claims and gov. shutdowns?

    Neither man nor God is responsible. God is not sending judgments. Weather is responsible.

    brown happens, live with it you California idiots.

  34. MarcJ says

    There is in the West an 11-year weather cycle now some 60 million years old that goes like this:
    1) 3-4 years of drought;
    2) 3-4 years of floods;
    3) 3-4 years of normal weather.
    One would think that by now everybody would be aware of this fact. Also, that weather cycle has absolutely nothing to do with that Global warming hoax or with that Climate Change scam.
    The present heavy rains and flooding of California was therefore completely predictable.

  35. phil62 says

    There is no such thing as man-made global warming. A bunch of idiots headed by the brain dead Al Gore and POS POTUS is useless as tits on a boar hog. Obama, and his policies, are nothing but failures and poor old Al just needs a little attention (mentally that is). What a bunch of DA useless people.

  36. MarcJ says

    If I were a dictator I would put that faker “Dr.” Mann in a solitary cell for life. In his infamous study where he “proved” that a man-made increase of CO2 in the atmosphere causes an increase of the earth’s temperature (the mainstay of the man-made Global warming hoax) that fraud reversed the cause and effect. No – you far-left POS! It is the solar cycle that increases earth’s temperature, and as a consequence, warmer oceans release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere!!! Man’s influence on the earth’s temperature is akin to a baby fly riding an elephant and imagining itself that the elephant is following its commands. When the sun cycle cools off – like now and lasting so far 18 years – the oceans re-absorb the atmospheric CO2. There has been NO warming for 18 years running!

  37. MarcJ says

    There is weather cycle in the western states now lasting for about 60 million years that goes like this:
    1) 3-4 years normal weather with normal rains; followed by
    2) 3-4 years of drought; and
    3) 3-4 years of floods.
    In California the switch between 2) and 3) is happening right now. The same cycle is going on in Nevada where I am living now

    Global warming is a scam and it most benefits those who want to keep it alive — Al Gore has duped more people than any con-artist alive — Those people believing it are really phatic, and self absorbed by the notion they can control the climate globally, heck we can even accurately tell the weather let alone control it — When mother nature is tired of us, she will simply discard us like the dinosaur’s, Wake up.

    1. Icarus62 says

      In reality, human activity is now the dominant influence on global climate. We are responsible for all of the global warming of the last half century, and it’s not going to stop any time soon, even under the most optimistic emissions reduction scenarios. There is a lot more warming to come, and we will see a great deal more climate impacts such as global sea level rise, melting glaciers and ice caps, shifting climate zones, intensifying storms and huge increases in heatwaves.

  40. adrianvance says

    At last a little good sense for once. “Global warming” is all about more taxes and new bureaus.

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for facts, ideas and more.

  41. zookeeper216 says

    Hello..smart people already new this.

  42. Icarus62 says

    Let’s see what the NOAA report actually says:

    Water supply depletion has not resulted from the lack of precipitation alone, but also from very high temperatures with the 2013/2014 winter being the state’s warmest on record.

    … and:

    …precipitation deficits observed during the past three years are an order of magnitude greater than the model simulated changes related to human-induced forcing. Nonetheless, record setting high temperature that accompanied this recent drought was likely made more extreme due to human induced global warming.

    So in fact it’s likely that AGW is responsible for making this recent drought the most severe in at least 1,200 years (as a new study has found).

  43. Ariel Gail MacLean says

    This column needs to vet and increase its research sources.
    Please consider the incredible science coming out of Dane Wiggington’s site: GeoEngineeringWatch.org.
    The predominance of evidence that the California Drought is man-made is impossible to dismiss.
    The die is cast – we have more unsustainable population centers in the USA alone, to predict major liveability crises just ahead. Time to expand our awareness of the many Citizen Journalists, Citizen Scientists, and Independent Thinkers who access and proliferate the exponentially increasing valid stories everywhere.
