Climate Change is Unfalsifiable Woo-Woo Pseudoscience

Karl Popper famously said, “A theory that explains everything explains nothing.” So what do you make of the theory that catastrophic manmade CO2-driven “climate change” can account for harsher winters and lighter winters, more snow and less snow, droughts and floods, more hurricanes and less hurricanes, more rain and less rain, more malaria and less malaria, saltier seas and less salty seas, Antarctica ice melting and Antarctic ice gaining and dozens of other contradictions? Popper gave a name to “theories” like this: pseudoscience.

SHOW NOTES:

Climate change makes for shorter winters

Climate change makes for harsher winters

Climate change means less snow

Climate change means more snow

Climate change causes droughts in California

Climate change causes floods in Texas and Oklahoma

Climate change makes wet places wetter and dry places drier…

…except when it makes wet places dryer…

…and dry places wetter

Climate change causes more hurricanes

Climate change causes less hurricanes

Climate change causes more rain (but less water)

Climate change causes less rain

Climate change decreases the spread of malaria

Climate change increases the spread of malaria

Climate change makes San Francisco foggier

Climate change makes San Francisco less foggy

Climate change causes duller autumn leaves

Climate changes causes more colourful autumn leaves

Climate change makes for less salty seas

Climate change makes for saltier seas

Climate change causes Antarctica to lose land ice

Climate change causes Antarctica to gain land ice

Climate change makes the earth hotter…

…unless the earth isn’t getting hotter…

…in which case climate change can explain that, too.
