Unsettled global warming “science.”

A flip-flop predicts worse or weaker monsoons.
- Climate change will worsen Indian monsoons, setting the stage for dangerous rains.
- Climate change will weaken monsoons and reduce monsoon rainfall.
These are contradictory conclusions of two “expert” studies about the impact of global warming. You can read all about it in, “Climate Alarmists Flip-Flop Again: Cancel their Monsoon Drought Crisis, Now Claim Too Much Rain,” by James Taylor.
Whichever it is, it’s bad, bad, bad.
Worse monsoons in flood-soaked portions of India obviously are bad. But weaker ones are too. The explanation:
“The decline is crucial because in these regions agriculture is still largely rain-fed. The South Asian monsoon brings sustenance to around two billion people,” India Climate Dialogue warned.
So, which is it? Does global warming strengthen monsoons and cause more rainfall, which we are told is bad? Or does global warming weaken monsoons and cause less rainfall, which we are told is bad? Or, just maybe – and as concluded by scientists in a recent peer-reviewed study, modest warming has little impact on monsoons, though that would be quite inconvenient for climate alarmists.
Contradictions is how science works. But “settled science.” Bah, humbug.
