MSNBC report:

Hillary Clinton called out climate change “deniers” at a clean energy conference in Las Vegas Thursday evening, but revealed little new about what her own energy policy platform might look like if she decides to run for president.
Clinton began her remarks at the National Clean Energy Summit by laying out the problems climate change is already causing today, including extreme weather and droughts. “[These are] the most consequential, urgent, sweeping collection of challenges we face,” she said. “No matter what deniers say.”

Now, I wonder what “extreme weather and droughts” she has in mind?
According to NOAA, drought in recent years has been at historically low levels, while precipitation has been trending upwards.

Of course, she might be talking about hurricanes?
Well, except for the fact that landfalling hurricanes are at an all-time low.

Or, perhaps, tornadoes?

Or heatwaves?

It is hard to avoid the conclusion that Hillary has not the slightest idea what she is talking about, and is simply repeating the crap that has been fed to her.

So, Hillary, you have called me out, and I am here. Perhaps you might care to explain to me why you are so keen to make claims that are so apparently false?
