“It is important that people recognize that weather is not the same thing as climate,” said Jane Lubchenco, head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.From Al Gore, yesterday:
“Just look at what has been happening for the last three days,” Gore said. “The so-called skeptics haven’t noted it because it’s not snow. But the downpours and heavy winds are consistent with what the scientists have long warned about.”Well, is it or isn't it? Seems Dr. Lubchenco has a long way to go in educating the public about climate change when the same guy who won the Nobel Prize and an Oscar for his work on climate change can't even get it right.
Add the climategate emails along with the IPCC's embarrassment over mistakes in the AR4 assessment--and the global cap-n-trade taxation solution to all of this--and it's no wonder the average Jane and Joe doesn't trust this stuff.
