Guest essay by Dr. Roger Pielke Sr.
– FOREWORD: WUWT readers probably remember when the now head of NASA GISS, Dr. Gavin Schmidt, could not stand to be seen on the same stage with Dr. Roy Spencer. Gavin decided to hide offstage while Dr. Spencer had finished his interview with John Stossel, rather than be subject to some tough questions Dr. Spencer might have posed in a debate with him on live TV. Gavin knew he’d lose, so he acted like a child on national TV and hid from Dr. Spencer offstage. It was one of the truly defining moments demonstrating the lack of integrity by mainstream climate scientists.
Now, Dr. Schmidt seems to be hiding from those inconvenient questions again, as Dr. Roger Pielke Sr. writes below. Dr. Schmidt also hides from me, having blocked WUWT on Twitter, so I’d appreciate it if some other WUWT readers…

Your local ‘expert’ climate scientist lies about the weather to :

Katherine Hayhoe believes that Lubbock is getting hotter and drier, at an unprecedented rate. She warns Texans that they are going to burn up.
In fact, Lubbock temperatures have been falling since 1998, with the last two years cooler than normal. The temperature graph indicates that Lubbock is experiencing a cyclical decline in temperature.
Hot days used to be much more common, and the frequency of hot days has plummeted since 1998 – with the exception of a very hot summer in 2011.
Winter/early spring precipitation has been increasing, with six of the ten wettest years occurring since 1997.
Katherine Hayhoe gets paid big bucks to lie about the climate in Texas. She really shouldn’t do that.
