Those convinced of man-made global warming believe that as carbon dioxide levels rise, there should be a corresponding increase in flood levels. But according to a new study by the U.S. Geological Survey, floods in the U.S. have not shown the measurable increase that researchers expected to see. The study, reported on in Energy and Environment Daily, divided the U.S. into four quadrants, and researchers matched the flow of 200 stream gauges with data about CO2 for 127 years. The results were “very much at odds” with projected assessments by the U.N.’s main scientific body, and provide yet another cold reality check on the overheated theory of man-made climate change.
