But it wasn’t because of Global Warming. How do I know?
Two reasons, really. First, even the most aggressive Global Climate Change estimates say we’ve raised the earth temperatures less than 1 1/2 degrees. (See the bottom of page 161 here.)
You really can’t blame a warm week on a 1.6 degree warming of the atmosphere. Vox tries to blame lots of things on Climate Change, but they’re Vox, so. There’s that.
Secondly, it’s been warm before:
The warm weather on the eastern half of the USA this winter has prompted many climate alarmists blame it on global warming/climate change/climate disruption even though in 1955, a similarly warm and record breaking warm winter occurred well before CO2 was out of the “safe” zone as some call it.
