April 30, More and more scientists are finally making the realization that this common excuse for the wicked climate change induced extremes of weather we have been having are actual ALL being caused by climate change. Today in real climate science land, "we can not tell if any one individual weather event is caused by climate change" is quickly becoming an unacceptable thing to say. Dr. Kevin Trenberth, Head of the Climate Analysis Section at the National Center for Atmospheric Research and Noble Laureate with 423 publications has this to say on the topic:
"Given that global warming is unequivocal, the null hypothesis should be that all weather events are affected by global warming rather than the inane statements along the lines of "of course we cannot attribute any particular weather event to global warming". That kind of comment is answering the wrong question."
What does null hypothesis mean? The "null hypothesis" is simple the opposite of the hypothesis. In this case, the assumption (the hypothesis) is that one cannot tell if any given weather event is caused by climate change or not. the Null hypothesis would then be the opposite of this statement – All weather events are now caused by climate change.
