On my own property, I look around and see the dead Ponderosa Pine trees that have existed there for hundreds of years, but have almost ALL died because of the GW induced drought.
Anyone with common sense should be able to figure out that trees that have lived for hundreds of years, but are all now dying at once is not normal. Take your head out of the sand. The changes are real.
Climate changes. It always has and always will. Whether or not it’s changing faster than normal because of human effects is up for debate, but it seems that we can’t have an honest debate about it. To me that is the real problem.
Within my lifetime, we’ve gone from global cooling to global warming to climate change and, despite two being direct opposites and one being an non-specific amalgamation of the other two, the result has been identical: changes happen but at a much, much slower pace than the experts told us they would.
The other constant has been that, whether we’re talking about global cooling, global warming or climate change, the prescribed cure is conveniently the same: the only way to fix it is for the poor and middle-class send more of their money to the rich. Meanwhile, the empowered rich will tell the poor and middle-class what they can no longer do, so that the rich, alone, can now enjoy those things without guilt.
The fact that the debate has been stripped of its honesty is evidenced in your own observation. You confidently claim that your drought is caused by global warming, yet the specific cause of global
warming that is being blamed would actually increase the moisture in the atmosphere and reduce instance of drought, not cause it.
When California finds itself in perpetual drought, it’s blamed on global warming (make no mention of the number of rats who have stuffed themselves into a cage with insufficient water infrastructure- that can’t be it), but then, as soon as the Sierra Nevadas collect a deposit of water to keep California’s rivers flowing strong all year… well that was global warming too.
