So, yer pretty sure it wasn't AGW a 1000 years ago that caused a
multi-century drought, but yer absolutely 100% sure that a recent tiny
blip of drought was caused by humans?
Actually, what they keep saying -- "Reporting" -- is that California "May
be" wetter as a result of GLOBAL WARMING! So, of course, if it's not
wetter then they're not wrong, because they didn't say that it would be
wetter, they said that it "May be" wetter. And, you know, if and when it
does enter a wet period they're be absolutely right.
So, this is why they can make "Predictions" year after year, get it wrong
all the time, and still be absolutely right.
...we had a candidate for governor once who was just like that. Every
year he predicted a budget crisis, and eventually the economic cycle
hit a recession and his was right... ignoring all those years he was wrong,
and if you say "Budget Crisis" enough times it's going to eventually
coincide with a year in which there really is a crisis.
I guess you can't blame the shameless for playing these stupid games,
as it enriches them, but you can blame the nimrods who gulp down the
Koolaid for empowering these evil slimes.
