'There’s no evidence of an increase in weather-related damages once you adjust for the fact that there are now more people with more expensive stuff to hit...
The EPA’s own model, ironically acronymed MAGICC, estimates that its new policies will prevent a grand total of 0.018ºC in warming by 2100. Obviously, that’s not enough to satisfy the steadily shrinking percentage of Americans who think global warming is a serious problem.'
Morano: When current reality fails to alarm, they make a bunch of scary predictions. That what this report is, it is a political report. Please be careful with the word ‘fact’ that was a disturbing word you used earlier. President Obama has done us a favor in a way, because no one is going to take this report seriously. Al Gore has made global warming a partisan issue and Obama has furthered that cause.
TV Anchor Anand Naidoo (formerly of Al Jazeera & CNN):But we are feeling [global warming], we have seen hurricanes, for instance hurricane Sandy. We have seen more Tornadoes in the Midwest in America. We have seen ocean levels rise in Bangladesh.
Morano: First of all, you used the word ‘facts’ earlier, I hope you are not using that now. Every bad weather event is now proof of global warming? There is no way to falsify the AGW theory...We are actually going through the longest period a category 3 or larger hurricane hitting the U.S. since 2005. That is the longest period in at least a century. Big tornadoes F3 and larger since the 1950s and 1970s have been on a decline. There might be more tornadoes counted, because we have better monitoring but actual damaging tornadoes, huge decline. The most damaging decade for hurricanes was the 1940s. Droughts are on a decline in the U.S. (over past century)
Morano mocks every weather event being blamed on global warming: 'Look, in 1846, in Australia, Aborigines blamed the bad climate on the introduction of the White man in Australia. During World War 2, some blamed the war for causing unusual weather patterns. In 1933, Syria banned the Yo-Yo because they thought it caused drought. In the 1970s, the exact same things (bad weather) we are talking about today, were blamed on man-made global cooling.
Michaels on Obama climate report National Climate Assessment: 'I was one of the reviewers on the report. I have read dozens of these compendia on climate change and this was the worst one I have ever read in my life. It’s one sided, it ignores tremendous amounts of the scientific literature. It is a document designed to tell a story and to give the President an excuse for a policy that no one wants...It is a boneheaded report for a President that has a tin ear on this issue. The drum beat goes on and on and on.'
'We have weather records that go back to the late 19th century. The notion that somehow weather is affecting people more. that is just a bunch of baloney. The richer you are the less the weather affects you.
