Warmists Rather Upset That Farmers Aren’t Buying Their World Ending Prognostications

People who find the weather very important pretty much every day for their income are smarter than the Progressive rubes pushing the ‘climate change’ narrative

Most Farmers Still Doubt They Have Anything To Do With Climate Change
Devastation from extreme weather events like Hurricane Matthew isn’t changing their minds, either.

(Lots of yammering about “extreme weather” events, like Hurricane Matthew, which have always happened but now doom us due to CO2 or something)

For his part, (North Carolina farmer Peyton) McDaniel doesn’t think climate change had anything to do with the devastation brought to his farm. His family has been farming its land since 1756 and has seen all sorts of weather across all those decades, he noted.

“I don’t think you can point to global warming or a manmade problem on this,” McDaniel added. “It’s more of a cyclical thing.”

The minimal amount of existing research on the topic shows that most farmers would probably agree with McDaniel, even though their industry is both uniquely vulnerable to extreme weather and a significant source of climate change-causing greenhouse gases.

How dare he actually hold a reasonable position! How dare he use history! It’s uncouth!

Many farmers would agree that weather patterns are changing and extreme weather is increasing, but most don’t think these have anything to do with human activities, according to Dr. J. Gordon Arbuckle Jr., a sociology professor at Iowa State University.

“Farmers in general are taking extreme weather more seriously,” said Arbuckle, who has interviewed and polled farmers in the Corn Belt region on the issue. “But most of them are more in line with there maybe being a human cause, but probably some natural cause to it.”

Except, actual research shows there is no increase in “extreme weather”, or, as we used to call it, weather. No increase in drought, flood, tropical systems, tornadoes, etc. In fact, in many cases, these events have gone down. Regardless, the weather has always changed from year to year, and the long term trends create climate, which has always changed. There’s no need to subscribe to some mythical belief that it is mostly/solely caused by Mankind, and that the only way to solve it is to increase governmental control of everything, including our individual lives. Unless you have an ulterior motive.
