Anyone reading last Friday’s piece here on the autobahn pile-up that killed 8 people (thankfully revised down from 10) because high-speed autobahn drivers were suddenly caught by a dust storm surely thought: “Hmmm, I wonder if warmists are going to blame this on climate change too?”
Yes we can!
Here it is at the online Bild in a headline story called: Dangerous Sandstorms Will Become More Frequent! Meteorologist Blames Climate Change. Bild writes:
A sudden sandstorm Friday led to aMass Car Crash near Rostock. Now a meteorologist warns: Such dangerous storms could be more frequent in the future! The fault is climate change.”
Of course driving too fast had nothing to do with it.
In last Friday’s piece, I did everything to avoid the temptation of writing “how long will it be before some opportunist steps up and blames climate change?” Not very long. That opportunist is publicity-seeker meteorologist Dominik Jung of wetter.net, who also happens to be the official meteorologist of the Bild tabloid.
Northern Germany has received little rain over the last weeks and conditions were ripe for dust storms as farmers’ fields are exposed just as the planting season is getting ready to begin. Jung, who is a 33-year old whippersnapper, claims:
Climate change produces extreme weather conditions. Record heat waves, cold waves and extraordinary droughts, like the one that led to the sandstorm, are becoming more frequent.”
It’s the science that just cannot be falsified.
