http://www.canberratimes.com.au/environment/climate-change/t...But Professor Trenberth believes too many researchers and too much ''second tier'' science are diluting the report's quality, and science is jumping far ahead of the lumbering process.Second tier science, that is no good... then he concludes with''Human influences are overlaid on normal ranges of weather extremes. There's more precipitation, and the rain's a bit harder. There is more heat and water over the oceans. The question is how much is a 'bit'.''An example would be Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, where there was about 11 inches [28 centimetres] of rain. About one inch of that was due to human influence. Maybe that extra inch was enough to cause the levee to break.''Is this second tier science or first? I'm thinking second tier is code for watered down conclusions that weren't as scary as they were in the past and not as scary as Trenberth would like.
