Chuck Schumer Spews Climate Falsehoods On The Senate Floor

After spending the last month making up stories about Republican support of Judge Justice Kavanaugh, last week’s confirmation of Kavanaugh left Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY)  looking for something new to lie about. Hurricane Michael gave him the opportunity. Exploiting a far left falsehood, Schumer gave his morning Senate leader speech to an empty chamber blaming hurricanes on climate change.

 

While his little bloviation may be porn for enthusiasts of the climate change hypothesis, Senator Schumer told a few whoppers to sell his agenda. Perhaps his biggest lie was that hurricane activity is increasing. Who says so? How About the IPCC the UN’s official climate change fear mongering group, backed up by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA):

As Roger Pielke Jr., University of Colorado professor and former scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research reported:

1⃣A short thread on what the new @IPCC_CH report says about trends in extreme events, specifically: heat waves, drought, floods, tropical cyclones, tornadoes. Let’s go . . .

2⃣Temperature extremes: Nor change from AR5 or SREX
Very likely= ⬇️cold days and nights
Very likely= ⬆️warm days and nights
Likely= “consistent changes are detectable on continental scale in North America, Europe and Australia”

Professor Pielke continues to explain what the latest UN IPCC  report says about drought and floods, but for the purposes of this post, we will skip to the section about hurricanes.

6⃣Tropical cyclones:
“Numerous studies towards and beyond AR5 have reported a decreasing trend
in the global number of tropical cyclones and/or the globally accumulated cyclonic energy”

Roger Pielke Jr.

@RogerPielkeJr

7⃣Tropical cyclones:
“there is only low confidence regarding changes in global tropical cyclone numbers under global warming over the last four decades.”

“there is only low confidence regarding changes in global tropical cyclone numbers under global warming over the last four decades.”

@RogerPielkeJr

8⃣Tropical cyclones:
” There is consequently low confidence in the larger number of studies reporting increasing trends in the global number of very intense cyclones.”

Roger Pielke Jr.

@RogerPielkeJr

9⃣Tornadoes. Not mentioned.

@RogerPielkeJr

1⃣0⃣Bottom line.
The IPCC once again reports that there is little basis for claiming that drought, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes have increased, much less increased due to GHGs.
In short, this is still right: https://www.amazon.com/Rightful-Place-Science-Disasters-Climate/dp/0999587749/

The Rightful Place of Science: Disasters & Climate Change

After nearly every hurricane, heatwave, drought, or other extreme weather event, commentators rush to link the disaster with climate change. But what does the science say? This fully revised second…

Now if you don’t want to believe the fear mongers at the United Nations, what about the NOAA? Note: while it is pronounced the same it has nothing to do with the biblical guy who built an ark to house a male and female of each species of animal except for unicorns who forgot to set their alarm that fateful morning.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is a US government agency. NOAA, whose administrators not only drink the man-made climate change Kool-aid but take in intravenously,  believes that we haven’t yet seen an increase in the number or ferocity of Atlantic hurricanes. Any changes are part of the earth’s natural cycles.

It is premature to conclude that human activity–and particularly greenhouse warming–has already caused a detectable change in Atlantic hurricane activity. (“Detectable” here means the change is large enough to be distinguishable from the variability due to natural causes.)

Now to be fair, NOAA does say in the future man-made climate change will increase as the sea level to rise, but as they still haven’t proven the climate change hypothesis, I don’t recommend buying that extra raincoat yet. Face it, the next time one of their climate change models is accurate will also be the first time. Another name for their climate change models is a wild guess.

Another recent study by two scientists, Dr. Ryan E. Truchelut and Dr. Erica M. Staehling revealed that the number of hurricanes has been decreasing since 1950.

Oh and two more things for Senator Schumer. He said that scientists believe the global warming hypothesis, some scientists do, and many don’t. In fact, the study that came up with the 97% consensus that liberals love to talk about is fake–the author cheated. And according to the satellite temperature data, the Earth hasn’t warmed in twenty years.

Did Chuck Schumer know his claims about the impending disaster were lies?  Knowing the NY Senator as well as I do…yeah probably. But don’t expect him to care, after all, two weeks ago he was ruining a good man’s life with his lies just to sate the radical left wing that is dominating the Democratic Party, why should he stop now.
