Atlanta is becoming increasingly distressed over a drought that has reached “exceptional” level threatening to leave more than 3 million city residents without tap water if the drought persists more than a few more months. What happened to the increasingly frequent and severe Atlantic hurricanes that so-called “global warming” was supposed to produce? There’s nothing but the proverbial sound of crickets chirping in the southeast where there should be at least a few howling hurricanes or remnants thereof dumping torrential rain on the region. Meanwhile, on the western side of the Gulf coast, Texas has had an unprecedented amount of rainfall even absent hurricane activity. Lake Travis, a 20,000 acre flood control reservoir near me, has been near or into the flood plain for almost 12 months in a row. Never before in the 60 year history of the lake has it been above the flood elevation for the entire month of August. This all just goes to show that the climate is unpredictable and predictions made by global warming alarmists are no exception. Even if anthropogenic global warming is true there is little to no evidence that its consequences will be a bad thing. Indeed as more and more scientists are admitting, when all real evidence is considered global warming is a good thing. It’s not a good thing for everyone everywhere of course but the net consequences appear to be of benefit to more people than not.
