New study shows weather began in 1923!
Darwin be damned. According to a new and improved study, weather and climate started almost 90 years ago, which a scientist now concludes is a "long period of time." Not billions of years as previously thought. I've already composed a letter to my college asking for a tuition refund. From TG Daily:
The difficulty with this theory is that records only go back about 40 years, making it hard to look for long-term trends. However, climate scientist Aslak Grinsted of the University of Copenhagen says he's been able to find instruments that have registered measurements continuously over a long period of time.
"Tropical cyclones typically form out in the Atlantic Ocean and move towards the US East Coast and the Gulf of Mexico. I found that there were monitoring stations along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States where they had recorded the daily tide levels all the way back to 1923," he says.
"I have looked at every time there was a rapid change in sea level and I could see that there was a close correlation between sudden changes in sea level and historical accounts of tropical storms."
