North Dakata Floods and Global Warming

On The Great Illuminator, there is a great story on how Obama blames the floods in North Dakota on Global Climate Change.

There is a slight problem with this theory. First, the planet is cooling. This, of course, is because of the sun and that is not emitting as much energy. This is proven since the all the planets are cooler and from countless other measurements, but I digress.

The best part of this whole premise is that Global Climate Change is causing it and it is our fault that the flooding is happening now. But, it happened there before. Actually, it happened in recent memory as early as 1997. What is amazing is this link that shows pictures of floods in 1897, 1945, 1950, 1979, 1997, 2001, and 2007.

"They" call it a historic flood. Strange, there is a history of flooding and this particular flood does not look unusual at all. I bet you if you could ask the Indians that lived before us there; they would say the area floods, as well.

This simply shows the climate is cyclical. It is so complex that we cannot even predict the weather for next week alone for the next decade. These floods have nothing to do with a few hubris humans that occupy the planet at this time. It has everything to do with Nature and it doing what it does, if we understand it or not.

  1. The great illuminater? Only when he has the teleprompter, ha.

    As for global warming, specifically man-made, hubby is always watching Science, Discovery, History, etc. channels, and it's interesting to see all the theories out there. Most of them agree that we are going into a cooling trend now.
