Lewandowski loves Sandy
Lugubrious Australian-based American psychologist Stephan Lewandowski keeps making attempts to brand climate skeptics as psychologically deficient. And in his latest effusion he thinks big storm Sandy helps make his case. Everything he says however is vitiated by his failure to get his basic climate facts right. He puts up a list of "extreme" and "record" weather events which he says prove global warming. But direct measures of temperature show no warming for around 16 years so he MUST be wrong. If warming does not exist, it cannot explain ANYTHING, let alone Sandy. What a laugh! Lewandowski is a strange psychological specimen himself
