And there could be no possible reason for the government to fudge the data a bit to help them push "solutions" that give them more power, could there?
Why would we look at the frequency of "severe weather events", anyway? Severe weather events - or weather events of any kind - are caused by temperature differentials (cold fronts, etc.). If the average temperature across the globe is rising, and this is the problem, this says NOTHING about the severity of temperature differentials across the world. The variability of temperature - the variance of measurements - would, but that isn't "global warming", and would have very, very little to do with any possible "global greenhouse effect".
See, the thing about the increase in the global temperature is that because meteorology views the atmosphere more or less using fluid dynamics, an increase in the global temperature doesn't mean everything is going to heat up uniformly.
Except a greenhouse effect wouldn't fit that at all. This would be true if the problem were natural, but if it really is human created CO2, than the additional warming would start in the highest part of the atmosphere and trickle down - the only "severe weather effects" would be increased turbulence for spacecraft exiting the atmosphere. (Also, NASA satellite data analyzed by researchers at the University of Alabama - Huntsville
indicates global warming is not caused by CO2 emissions.)
In fact, there will be pockets of areas where the average temperature will decrease relatively
Pockets of areas as large as the Northern Hemisphere during winter?
At least that's how the NCAR/UCAR/IPCC consortium panels view this problem.
And the governments have no reason to lie. After all, they are providing the solution - hand all our freedoms over to them so they can control our activities to end the crisis. Also, steal all our money through pointless taxation to fund companies like Solyndra in the hope that one of them eventually makes a product people will buy (with the money they no longer have, because the government stole it..... hmmmm).
