Peer reviewed paper: Extreme precipitation 1872-2017 not significant, not related to greenhouse gas. Why can't alarmists follow the science?

Title: "Assessing Changes in US Regional Precipitation on Multiple Time Scales"

From the abstract: "Over the 1901–2017 interval upward trends in some measures of average and extreme precipitation appear, but they are not consistently significant and in the full records back to 1872 they largely disappear. They also disappear or reverse in the post-1978 portion of the data set, which is inconsistent with them being responses to enhanced greenhouse gas forcing. We conclude that natural variability is likely the dominant driver of historical changes in precipitation and hence drought dynamics in the US SE and PC."

Update:

This complements another paper showing similar results:

Title: "Global precipitation variability decreased from 1940 to 2009"

Excerpt: "Sun et al.find that from 1940 to 2009 global overland precipitation variability actually decreased."

    as atmospheric CO2 levels go up , so does global temps . on 12 21 12 atmospheric CO2 hit 400 ppm . that has triggered a very rapid , runaway , irreversible greenhouse effect . we have less than 20 years before the worldwide crop failures start . the deniers die too .
