We realize it’s been a slow news period, but there’s no excuse for this:

No, the life-altering flood did not involve Noah and the animals. This study was more interested in what people feel as opposed to what science can’t prove.

Whether it’s floods or draught, warm winter days or snowing on the first day of summer, it’s all global warming/climate change, we’re told.

But how to convince the masses?

In this latest useless study with our tax dollars, conducted by the University of Colorado Denver and (P)uke University, researchers discovered folks who were not impacted by the 2013 floods now blame the event on climate change.

What mattered most was the shared experience of the community, researchers found after surveying about 900 residents of Boulder, Longmont, Lyons, Estes Park, Loveland and Evans. Those whose homes did not flood grew just as concerned about climate change and natural disasters because of what happened to their neighbors and friends.

“These findings may speak to the power of collective experiences, rather than experiences felt independently,” the researchers wrote in a paper published in May in the academic journal, Climatic Change.

While not exactly scientific in nature, we’re betting the study will prove invaluable to radical environmentalists, who will use climate change natural disasters for their propaganda and fundraising purposes.
