"[Neil] Young went on to argue that, despite ample preparation, the blazes were “something bigger than we have ever seen,” adding, “Firefighters have never seen anything like this in their lives. I have heard that said countless times in the past two days, and I have lost my home before to a California fire, now another.”
Returning to Trump and climate change, he said, “Imagine a leader who defies science, saying these solutions shouldn’t be part of his decision-making on our behalf. Imagine a leader who cares for his own, convenient opinion than he does for the people he leads. Imagine an unfit leader. Now imagine a fit one.”"
So...........Young built a house in a high-fire-risk zone, it got burned up, then he did it again, and he doesn't see that as a problem - but somehow he thinks that 'science' shows that in a mere two years, Trump has somehow caused 'climate change' to make California have a record-hot summer.
Interesting how it used to be "global cooling" - then when that was revealed to be a blip versus trend, it was "global warming" - then when it was record-setting snowfall, of course it was due to 'global warming' - sort of plausible, since warmth-->water evaporating-->more moisture in sky-->more snow.
However lack of the integrity of the 'climate change' people starts to be obvious when they ALSO say that decreased snowfall is due to the same thing. Then they blame a record-rainfall on 'climate change' and a record-drought on it as well...
So their graphs showing 'up' trends OR 'down' trends are used to further their agenda. ANY change is used, yet the climate has always been 'changing', so the ONLY way their argument would hold water would be if we truly had more up AND down variability documented, which has not happened. For one thing, OLD data (even before 100 years ago, and moreso before 1,000 years ago) is very unreliable for detecting variability as far as peaks and troughs year-to-year. It is good at 'averages', and that's about it.
So I'm pro-environment for sure, but just can't buy into 'climate change' until someone has REAL science to justify their stance...
