The reality is that climate is a hugely variable and hopelessly complicated thing, that it is actually meaningless to attempt to identify anthropogenic climate change through climate events like floods or droughts.” – (Professor Stewart Franks) https://ipa.org.au/wp-content/uploads/archive/Franks_article.pdf
Contrary to available evidence, a number of media outlets and vested-interest groups seem determined to attribute any extreme weather event, including droughts, to human-induced climate change.
Those deceitful individuals who promote climate alarmism for personal gain know full-well that most politicians and members of the public have little scientific understanding and will swallow much of the climate nonsense served up by media reporters who care little for evidence whilst thriving on alarmism. It would appear that the many vested interest groups who promote climate alarm will dismiss any evidence that refutes such alarmism.
The inevitable global occurrence of droughts provides a typical example where media hype promotes the view that any dry spell of any significance is a consequence of the trivial anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions that are adding to the already trivial 400 ppm of atmospheric carbon dioxide.
