And what, pray, would be an acceptable answer? More to the point, what would be YOUR answer and upon what verifiable data would it be based? Or are we destined to be subjected to this kind of smug, wink-wink sarcasm every time we experience an unusual weather event? Who knew that the old New England adage ("If you don't like the weather just wait a few minutes") was the original harbinger of global warming?!
Easy. Accept the reality that now even one-time skeptics like Richard Muller is doing. We are heating the planet to a point of peril. I'd rather be accused of smugness than having my head up an orifice.And what is YOUR answer????
As soon as we adapt to it the new weather patterns may prove a boon to society in general. Some floods here and there but shipping will be able to use the Northwest passage, ski areas in southern New England. The globe changed before, there were palm trees in Antarctica. Best bet right now buy farmland in central northern Canada it will be fertile in a few years with a longer growing season.
Weird weather = climate change is just a way to say that every headline means climate change. What kind of weather would mean that climate change wasn't happening or wasn't caused by CO2?
