Predictions that droughts are getting worse have not come to pass, according to a study by the Global Warming Policy Foundation.
"Evidence that droughts have become more prevalent on a global scale is equally hard to come by," British author Andrew Montford said in a Daily Caller report
A separate report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
(IPCC) said, "Confidence is low for a global-scale observed trend in drought or dryness since the middle of the 20th century, owing to lack of direct observations, methodological uncertainties and geographical inconsistencies in the trends."
The IPCC's report showed drought rising in some areas, and decreasing notably in others.
Secretary of Defense John Kerry addressed the effects of climate change
in the Wall Street Journal. Kerry said climate change would make "the horrific refugee situation worse," because drought and rising sea levels would be likely to bring about "mass migration."
A report in the Washington Post
suggested that global warming may have made weather in America more pleasant for the last 40 years, which is possibly a reason why Americans don't consider global warming a major issue.
"Americans are getting the wrong signal," policy professor Patrick Egan said. "They're getting the good parts and haven't had to pay the price for the bad part," Egan said in the report.
