I looked at Andy Dessler’s claims that monsoon floods in India are connected to climate change in an earlier post today.

 

Andy’s track record for climate pronouncements sadly leaves a lot to be desired!

 

I first came across him in 2012, shortly after starting this blog. The year before he wrote in the Houston Chronicle:

As you sit by the pool and sweat this summer, one book you should be reading is The Impact of Global Warming on Texas (University of Texas Press, June 2011, second edition). This book, written by a group of Texas academics, is a sober analysis of our state’s vulnerability to climate change — and the things we can do about it.

It is a particularly appropriate read as we suffer through the hellish summer of 2011. While it is unknown exactly how much human activities are contributing to this summer’s unpleasant weather, one lesson from the book is clear: Get used to it. The weather of the 21st century will be very much like the hot and dry weather of 2011. Giving extra credibility to this forecast is the fact that the weather extremes that we are presently experiencing were predicted in the first edition in 1995.

Well, that prediction did not work out very well, did it Andy?

Being so badly wrong about something he should have known about did not stop our Andy from spouting more nonsense about things he knew nothing about:

The Guardian are of course more than happy to publish any nonsense they have been given by the likes of Mann and Dessler. Even though it bears no resemblance to the actual data:

But for Andy, facts are a bit irrelevant. It is politics that matter most:

That was back in 2008, but he is still pushing his far left agenda today, judging by his Twitter feed:

With a track record like that, it is little wonder that Roger Pielke Sr had this to say about Dessler, Mann and Elsner in 2015:
