Yes, I’m still working on the model stuff. And yes, I’m busy trying to teach myself R. In the mean time, I felt like sharing this with you: The Drought History of the US:
% Area of the US Moderately to Extremely Dry (red) and Severely to Extremely Dry (Orange).
Just so that there is a hypothesis test here: Did anyone hypothesize that AGW would cause more droughts in the US? If so, I think this is enough to invalidate that idea.
But I doubt anyone familiar with the actual data or science would make such a silly claim. So it was probably Al Gore.
And yes we are getting wetter. Bad? I don’t think so. But people are welcome to spurn rain if they wish.
