It's been a little while since I've updated my blog, and this one won't be that long but here we go anyway.
The reaction of the country to Katrina has taught me something that I didn't know before.
The weather is President Bush's fault.
The environmentalists and just about every Bush basher has implied or outright declared that storms are getting worse because of global warming and that it's Bush's fault.
We have been told that the earth is between 0.5 and 1.5 degrees f warmer than it was a century ago. Let's assume, for the sake of argument, that this is correct. Let us also say, for the sake of argument, that something made it necessary for us to increase the temperature of the world by 1 degree f. How would we do it? Could we do it? I submit that we couldn't. We couldn't raise the temperature of the world if we needed to, it's laughable to think that we're doing it by accident.
When Krakatoa (or Krakatau) erupted in the late 1800s the climate of the planet was disrupted for several years. The year following the eruption, it snowed in New England in July. Approximately 13 cubic miles of earth was liberated into the atmosphere during the eruption. Descriptions of the evidence of that dispursion of earth was documented in drawings of sunsets for years after the event.
Edvard Munch's famous painting "The Scream" has been called an accurate depiction of the sky over Norway after the eruption. This was painted 10 years after the eruption.
I'd like to know why I've not heard anyone theorize that this 0.5 to 1.5 degree difference is the return of normality to the atmosphere.
My point is this. We just don't know IF the earth is warming and even if it is we still don't know WHY. President Bush isn't responsible for the weather.

Bush is responsible for global warming because he wouldn't sign the Kioto treaty.
