'The Houston flood this week is weather, and not climate, and leave it at that.
No doubt national news media outlets are out of control when it comes to weather coverage, and their idiotic claims find their way to us on a daily basis.
You will never hear about the low tornado count in recent years, the lack of major hurricane landfalls on U.S. coasts over the past 10 years, or the low number of wildfires this year. It doesn’t fit their story. But, never let facts get in the way of a good story…. there will ALWAYS be a heat wave, flood, wildfire, tornado, tyhpoon, cold wave, and snow storm somewhere. And, trust me, they will find them, and it will probably lead their newscasts. But, users beware…
Via Raw Story website: Morano in video - Full PowerPoint here: “Today we are told we need a fundamental transformation of our lives in order to end bad weather,” he said. “We are told we need EPA regulations and UN treaties in order to spare us from more hurricanes and floods and droughts and all this bad weather.”
“If science and religion are united, what are they united on?” Morano said. “Well, actually, the new climate commissioners gave us a clue. It’s not about science. Even if the science is wrong, the policy is right.”
Morano argued that people who talked about climate change were not really worried about the environment — they only used the issue to push for socialist policies. He said climate science was like astrology, because “no matter what climate event it is always exactly what the models predicted.”
“There was 97 percent consensus in the middle ages that witches caused bad weather and now we are told there is a 97 percent consensus that every storm and every bad weather is [linked to climate change].”
'There is little sign that extreme rainfall days are increasing, and the record of 18.5 inches was set as long ago as 1994...One of the difficulties with comparing extreme rainfall with the past is that most historical 24 hour data was only categorised from midnight to midnight. Now with continuous collection data, any 24-hour period can be picked, thus making it much more likely that higher totals will be found.'
Translating Climate Change into Music...Each performer represents one of four zones in the Northern Hemisphere: near the equator (cello), the midlatitudes (viola), the upper latitudes (violin), and the Arctic (violin). High notes correspond to high temperatures and vice versa.
Climate activists targeting children with range of 'cli-fi' novels - Climate change fiction for youngsters is 'taking off in a big way' according to activists - David Thorpe, author of the book Stormteller, said that children were more open minded and claimed that writers could 'infect' their minds with 'seriously subversive viral ideas'. "You can try to be seriously subversive and try to infect their minds with these viral ideas that they can explore on their own to make it exciting. When I was that age I loved having my mind boggled."
