Continuing with the fact-checking of the "Southeast State Climate Change Fact Sheets" provided by the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE), the next state on the list is Georgia.
For this state, SACE provides some "Climate Change Impacts on Georgia" that include the following:
Extreme weather, including severe storms, heat waves, cold snaps, and more intense hurricanes are all becoming more typical in a warmer world. These events have a large toll in terms of physical damage, lost productivity, higher insurance costs, and public health. For example the 'polar vortex' snowfall of 2014 practically shut down Atlanta with road gridlock while thousands of children had to spend the night at school because their parents couldn't reach them.
The link provided by SACE regarding the "'polar vortex' snowfall of 2014 [that] practically shut down Atlanta" is to an ABC News story from Good Morning America on January 29 with the alarmist title "Freak southern snow storm strands 8,000 students." The story provided the following description of the carnage, and also included a video segment with George Stephanopoulos:
Monday night marked the debut of Saving My Tomorrow, a new HBO documentary described thusly in promotional materials*:
From the children who will inherit the planet comes a collection of songs, activism and heartfelt tips for protecting the earth … A lyrical mix of science, animation and music, celebrates the wonders of the natural world and is a call from kids to kids to help take care of the planet.
The last sentence of this synopsis suggests the documentary is a “celebration,” but I can report that it’s anything but. I watched a recording of episode one this morning, and it’s less a party and more a dirge.
Most of the people of the world have concluded that the decades of warnings about “global warming” and its successor, “climate change”, is just idiotic nonsense. Few believe that humans ever had or ever will have any role in what the weather will be tomorrow or a thousand years from now. They are right.
One of the most distinguishing factors about the Anthropogenic Global Warming theory has been the way its advocates have always predicted major changes decades into the future. When the future arrived, as it has since the first doomsday predictions were made in the late 1980s, they simply push off the next arrival date for another couple of decades. A classic example is the prediction that that Arctic and Antarctic sea ice would have all melted by now. Instead the global cold weather have been making new records of late.
