Only total idiots would claim that California's historic drought is not due to Mann-made global warming.
Natural weather patterns, not man-made global warming, are causing the historic drought parching California, says a study out Monday from federal scientists.
"It's important to note that California's drought, while extreme, is not an uncommon occurrence for the state," said Richard Seager, the report's lead author and professor with Columbia University's Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory. The report was sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The report did not appear in a peer-reviewed journal but was reviewed by other NOAA scientists.
"In fact, multiyear droughts appear regularly in the state's climate record, and it's a safe bet that a similar event will happen again," he said.
Oh, you better believe that Mikey Mann and his disciples have a problem with this. Mikey took to that bastion of uncritical "journalism", the Huffington Post, on Monday to register his disagreement with the NOAA findings. Because when you want solid, unbiased reporting, you always turn to HuffPo.
