With five days left in the year, The Weather Channel reported that the United States will finish with the fewest tornado deaths on record, should no tornadoes touch down and create fatalities before January 1.
And should no EF4/5 tornadoes hit the U.S. in the next five days, it would mark the first time that none have hit in a calendar year since that record began in 1950, according to the Washington Post.
Prof Ray Bates of the Meteorology and Climate Centre at University College Dublin: The UN IPCC's 'SR1.5 report does not merit being regarded by policymakers as a scientifically rigorous document.' “There is much recent observational and scientific evidence that the IPCC report has failed to include and which supports a more considered mitigation strategy than the extreme and unrealistic measures called for in the SR1.5 report."
Dr. Edward Walsh, the Founding President of the University of Limerick and former chairman of Ireland’s National Council for Science, Technology and Innovation said: "Policymakers should carefully reflect on the significant deficiencies (of the UN IPCC report) identified in the report before considering implementing its recommendations.”
"What elevates the past four years above the previous ones is an El Nino event, the strongest one on record. As we have said many time before an El Nino is not a climatic phenomenon, it is weather. What’s more, after its peak in 2016 the global temperature has fallen by around 0.4° C. (.74F)"
James Taylor: The USGCRP’s steering committee and authors are composed almost entirely of Obama-era deep-state holdovers. The two lead authors for the report — prominent, controversial global warming activists Don Wuebbles and Katherine Hayhoe — were put in place by the Obama administration.
The over-the-top, cover-to-cover climate fables in the USGCRP report by agenda-driven climate activists demonstrate the need for the Trump administration to clean out agenda-driven deep-state holdovers from the Obama administration.
