They’ve Moved On From The Texas Drought!
By Paul Homewood
This time last year, the Texas Drought was the poster child of global warming, with Joe Romm’s “permanent droughts” and Katharine Hayhoe’s “global weirding”.
So what’s been going on down there in the last 12 months?
Climate At A Glance
Most Recent 12-Month Period (Sep – Aug) Precipitation
Most Recent 12-Month Period (Sep – Aug) 1901 – 2000 Average = 27.91 Inches
Most Recent 12-Month Period (Sep – Aug) 1895 – 2012 Trend = 0.04 Inches / Decade
Texas has had 26.56 inches of rain since last September, which is just about as average a year as you are likely to get, (high rainfall totals tend to be the result of hurricanes!), while the long term trend is, to all intent, non existent at 0.04 inches/decade. How weird is that, Katharine?
This year, of course, the alarmists have moved onto pastures new. I wonder where they will find some unusual weather next year?
