NPR is earning their corporate donations from the Koch brothers and other fossil fuel global warming denialists. In reporting on the role of atmospheric waves, they started out saying that while come have believed global warming had a hand in the recent severe California drought, that instead it was cause by atmospheric waves. This ignore that (1) whatever the basic cause, global warming is making such event more severe, and (2) global warming will affect the timing and severity of these atmospheric waves.
And they encourage the simplistic thinking that attributes a single cause to an event, when it should be automatic that we realize that most complex events have more than one cause.
