"Don’t Know Much About The Weather"


Chad Myers is an idiot:

CNN Meteorologist Chad Myers had never bought into the notion that man can alter the climate and the Vegas snowstorm didn’t impact his opinion. Myers, an American Meteorological Society certified meteorologist, explained on CNN’s Dec. 18 “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that the whole idea is arrogant and mankind was in danger of dying from other natural events more so than global warming.

“You know, to think that we could affect weather all that much is pretty arrogant,” Myers said. “Mother Nature is so big, the world is so big, the oceans are so big – I think we’re going to die from a lack of fresh water or we’re going to die from ocean acidification before we die from global warming, for sure.”

Now of course it’s true that we’re more likely to die from a lack of fresh water or from ocean acidification than we are to die from the temperature becoming so high that human life can’t exist. But global warming causes lack of fresh water and ocean acidification is, like global warming, caused by human carbon dioxide emissions. If you’re concerned about water supplies and ocean acidification, you need to hop on the climate catastrophe avoidance bandwagon.
