Morano: "Well first of all the big success story: Since 1920 we've had a 99% reduction in climate-related deaths that's the big success story so what fossil fuels have done which the Biden administration wants to go after is taking an unsafe climate and made it safe for humanity by giving us infrastructure by giving us early warning by giving us the technology so we are much safer...the idea that all this other weather is caused by climate this is nothing short of lobbying using an extreme weather event a bad weather event to lobby for your political goals. They've weaponized the weather and that's what the Biden administration is doing. It's what Chuck Schumer is doing and it's evidence-free because the more you look at the data there's always records broken there's always extreme weather everywhere on the planet that's the norm nothing unusual now from a climate time scale is occurring.
Dan Bongino: "I give that one to Marc. But thanks for thanks for joining us."
UN IPCC writes, “the frequency and intensity of heavy precipitation have likely increased at the global scale over a majority of land regions with good observational coverage,” but …, “heavier rainfall does not always lead to greater flooding.”
Concerning flooding, the IPCC writes, “Confidence about peak flow trends over past decades on the global scale is low, … there is low confidence in the human influence on the changes in high river flows on the global scale.” ...
University of Colorado’s Roger Pielke, Jr. analyzed the AR6 in detail, writing: “[I]t is simply incorrect to claim that on climate time scales the frequency or intensity of extreme weather and climate events has increased for: flooding, drought (meteorological or hydrological), tropical cyclones, winter storms, thunderstorms, tornadoes, hail, lightning or extreme winds (so, storms of any type).”
Research shows since 1957 alone five hurricanes have made landfall in Louisiana with wind speeds exceeding 150 mph. The most powerful of those five hurricanes, 1969’s Category 5 Camille, had wind speeds exceeding 190 mph. Three of the five Category 4 or higher hurricanes Louisiana has experience in the past 70 years occurred during late 1950s and 1960s during a period when the earth was undergoing a period of modest cooling, and many scientists were warning of a coming ice age.
Data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Hurricane Center (NHC) show hurricanes have neither become more numerous or more powerful during the past half-century of modest warming.
Paul Homewood: "Data shows that hurricanes are not becoming more intense, a fact that the IPCC themselves acknowledge."
"300 hurricanes made US landfall between 1851 and last year, including 92 major ones, that is Cat 3 and over. The busiest decade for major hurricanes was the 1940s, while in contrast, the last decade was one of the quietest. Ida is the first hurricane to hit the US so far this year."
"The Independent has also deviously claimed that Ida was the fifth-strongest hurricane to ever hit the mainland United States. In reality, it is actually tied with six other hurricanes, meaning it is only amongst the top 10. Many hurricanes prior to the satellite era of course may not have had their peak wind speeds actually recorded."
Paul Homewood: "It is absolutely clear that the number of strong tornadoes has declined since the 1970s. Alarmingly, however, this page has been 'disappeared', and the link now comes up with this:
Fortunately Wayback still has a copy of the original web page, and I also have it on file. It is blindingly apparent that NOAA found their original assessment far too inconvenient, something that should be kept out of the public domain at all cost."
Climate chauses wind speeds to decrease...Except when climate change causes wind speeds to increase...
Claim: Atmosphere expert Professor Paul Williams, of the University of Reading, told the Financial Times that winds have ‘generally weakened over land over the past few decades’. He said one explanation for plummeting wind speeds could be ‘human-related climate change’, that would see poles warming ‘faster than tropics in lower atmosphere’ areas. Prof Williams said: ‘This would have the effect of weakening the mid-latitude north-south temperature difference and consequently reducing the thermal wind at low altitudes.’
