And here’s the paper he references:

He comes to the same conclusion about China:

Or, as Obama’s Climate Scientist Steve Koonin puts it:

Others might simply call it fraud!

    “It also proposed the creation of an “extreme weather SWAT team” that would immediately seize on natural disasters and other extreme weather events to advance a political and communications agenda.”

    A proliferation of ‘studies’ and groups producing/promoting them appeared immediately.

    e.g. “Since WWA started in 2014”

    And now the Met Office calls 30c temperatures “extreme weather”

      The MO invent’s a new extreme heat warning, then gets to use it for the first time ever!

      It used to be a celebration of ‘phew what a scorcher’ or ’90F in the shade’ – not now with the climate killjoys.

    The sad reality is that when the left is in charge of anything, innocent people die. Of course they never admit their culpability in the results.

    I cannot help but think Bill Gates and Richard Attenbrorugh are pleased.

      Sorry for the mis-spelling of Attenborough.

      Not just the spelling Joan – the christian name also. I think you mean David, Richard was the actor.

    Remember the Whaley Bridge Dam? Career diplomat and chairman of the Environment Agency Sir James Bevan instantly blathered on about climate change being the root cause of the problem presumably to get the EA off the hook for the blame. When a real engineer (Sir David Balmforth) reported some time later it was quite evident that the EA were to blame for a record of poor maintenance being the real problem. False attribution is clearly very dangerous.

    “The study is the latest in a growing body of research termed “rapid attribution” analysis, which aims to establish if there is a link between climate change and specific extreme events like heat waves, heavy rainstorms, and flooding.”

    Surely that should read:

    “The study is the latest in a growing body of research termed “rapid attribution” analysis, which aims to establish if there is a link between climate change and specific extreme events like heat waves, heavy rainstorms, and flooding.”
