“Even this week’s cold weather is probably being caused at least in part by global warming, said Jonathan Overpeck, a climate scientist at the University of Michigan.”
BUT wait, there’s more! …
“So what happens if global temperatures take a real plunge for a sustained period? Don’t worry, the explainers have that one covered as well – James Hansen, former NASA GISS Director, published a paper which suggests global warming will trigger a short ice age in the near future…”
ERGO, no! There is no “weather or climate shift [that could] cast doubt on the dominance of that wicked little trace molecule.”
HOT, cold, wet, dry, snow, drought, flood, heatwave, blizzard – it’s ALL “global warming” aka “climate change” aka “climate disruption” and it’s ALL your fault!

Does record breaking winter cold cast doubt on climate predictions of milder winters? Could ANY weather or climate shift cast doubt on the dominance of that wicked little trace molecule? Apparently not, according to leading climate explainers.
It’s cold outside, but that doesn’t mean climate change isn’t real
Sammy Roth, USA TODAY Published 5:13 p.m. ET Dec. 28, 2017
This week’s cold snap has brought record-low temperatures, freezing rain and heavy snow to much of the United States. But 2017 is still on track to be the second- or third-hottest year ever recorded globally — and scientists say climate change is to blame.
Even this week’s cold weather is probably being caused at least in part by global warming, said Jonathan Overpeck, a climate scientist at the University of Michigan.

“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.“
– Timothy Wirth,
President of the UN Foundation
Saturday 23 June, 1934
The fact that during last year 81 of 100 Swiss glaciers decreased in size did not in any way indicate that the earth was becoming warmer and drier, said professor H. C. Richards, Professor of Geology at the Queensland University, yesterday, commenting on a message from Geneva concerning a world-wide drought. Even if the observations of Swiss glaciers were continued over a period of 50 years, he said, the data obtained could not warrant any general statement that the world as a whole was becoming drier or warmer.
Investigations of geological records [show] clearly established cyclic changes in climates to which any particular portion of the earth’s surface was subjected. Australia, for example, had experienced at least four periods of great refrigeration, with accompanying glacial conditions.
CO² at the time was ~ 310 PPM.
Entire regions undergoing rapid glacial retreat, mere cycles of the earth system, no cause for alarm. In 1934, scientists did actual science.
In the modern era of post-normal science, with billions of dollars of CO2-centric funding at stake and reputations to advance, it makes perfect sense to generalise that carbon
dioxide pollution is the only thing responsible for the world’s changing climate. Who cares that the “geological records [show] clearly established cyclic changes in climates..” !
In 1945, the planet was again experiencing radical climate change :
Monday 22 January 1945
“Throughout the world the climate is changing,” Mr. Cotsworth continued. “The glaciers of Alaska and Western Canada are retreating. The great Sahara Desert is moving south, drying up Nigerian rivers and the lakes of western Sudan. Australia’s deserts are increasing. The ice cap along the Antarctic, opposite Australia and New Zealand, is receding. Mr. Cotsworth is of the opinion that the greatest single factor governing climatic changes in the Northern Hemisphere is the ice cap on Greenland.
CO² at the time was ~ 320 PPM.
In today’s enlightened world of Government funded climate science, Mr. M. B. Cotsworth would have been stripped of funding, excommunicated from the field, publicly vilified for dissent against the orthodoxy, posted up on DeSmogBlog and labelled a denier for claiming radical climate change was due to anything other than man-made carbon
