The fear mongers at the University of Arizona are at it again and it's going to cost taxpayers $3.5 million. The CLIMAS program (climate assessment for the southwest) was given a $3.5 million grant from NOAA to help the southwest battle and prepare for climate change. The best part from the story is this:
Research over the last several years indicates the Southwest is a potential bulls eye for climate change impacts in the 21st century. The average annual temperature in the Southwest could rise by about 4 to 7 or more degrees Fahrenheit during this century, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 2007 Summary for Policymakers.
"Could" rise? Wow. That's science. Temps could fall too. These clowns can't tell you what the temperature will be in 3 weeks but they "could" tell you the temps in 88 years. The UN's IPCC report has been laughed at and rebuked but that didn't stop the UA from using this garbage to get $3.5 million of our money.
