Remember That Drought Thing We had That Was the End of the World?

1896-2018 Nh 02 Predip TrendAs we rambled through and out of the final year of Obama’s presidency, New Hampshire had a drier than usual year. By drier I mean (Southern New Hampshire) ranked 23rd for precipitation out of 124 years in the Granite State sample. The great Global Warming drought of 2015/2016-2017 (MAY-APRIL) was 4.80 inches below the mean. For contrast, From 1964 to 1965 (the worst year for the 1896-2018 sample) we only saw 29.42 inches or precipitation, 14.94 fewer inches than the mean.

That “drought” is no longer an issue, as New Hampshire continues to be wetter, not drier, which I pointed out during the “drought.”

Put simply; New Hampshire has been getting wetter, not drier, so don’t let the chicken little alarmists bilk your stagnating annual incomes with promises that they can fix “the weather” if you’ll just hand over more of what you make at every opportunity they can legislate into existence.

Northern New Hampshire is wetter as well.

1896-2018 Nh 01 Predip Trend

I don’t think we can make the case that rising atmospheric CO2 is making New Hampshire drier. If anything the opposite is more likely, which will make for no less desperate times among those who need people to think the government can fix the weather.

They can’t even predict it.

But that’s okay. The same people are convinced the seas are going to swallow you and that if you part with a few more millions or billions of dollars annually, they can stop that too.

And they “can,” but you need to understand that you’ll get the same results if you spend those same millions or billions (annually) on almost anything else including keeping them, spending them on yourselves, your businesses, your employees, or your families.
