- Reuters warns 3 lightning deaths in DC are a ‘climate warning’ — But ignores massive decline in lightning deaths over past 100 years & studies predicting less lightning in warmer world
(Reuters) - "Scientists say that climate change is increasing the likelihood of lightning strikes across the United States, after lightning struck at a square near the White House, leaving three people dead and one other in critical condition."
But wait! How can fatal lightning strikes be a "climate warning" when fatal lightning strikes are dramatically declining?!
Extreme weather expert Professor Roger Pielke Jr. comments by pointing out the dramatic drop in lightning strike deaths since 1900.:

- New claim: Global Warming To Compromise Aircraft Safety! ‘Will lead to more lightning strikes on aircraft’
'According to the CAA’s (Civil Aviation Authority) review of safety, page 156, they are concerned that global warming will lead to more lightning strikes on aircraft!'
'Lightning-induced fires are rare...However, greater weather changes are anticipate as a result of global warming, with lighting implications.'

USA saw fewest lightning deaths on record in 2013: ’23 Americans died from lightning in 2013, the fewest since records began in 1940′ - '2013 was also a relatively quiet year in the USA for severe thunderstorms, which produce large hail, tornadoes or very strong winds.' - 'The previous record low was in 2011, which had 26 deaths.'Posted 12:15 PM by Marc Morano | Tags: astrology, lightning, transportation, wacky
Climate skeptics’ panel discussion at Princeton ‘Zoom-bombed’! ‘The N-word & a doodle of male genitalia’ appeared over Dr. Will Happer’s presentation slides
Princeton Alumni Weekly: "A panel titled “Climate Change is NOT an Emergency,” sponsored by the Conservative Princeton Association, featured speakers arguing that the media and policymakers are pushing a narrative laden with misinformation and fear. ... William Happer *64, an emeritus professor of physics at Princeton, said you can’t “dial” the Earth’s temperature up and down using carbon dioxide levels.
While Happer was speaking, the panel was Zoom-bombed: The N-word and a doodle of male genitalia suddenly appeared on the screen over his slides. The technical staff immediately shut down the event on Zoom, and it continued in person only.
Physicist: ‘The frequency & severity of floods, droughts, hurricanes, tornadoes, heat waves & wildfires are not increasing, & may even be declining in some cases’
"The frequency of North Atlantic hurricanes has been essentially unchanged since 1851, as seen in the following figure. The apparent heightened hurricane activity over the last 20 years, particularly in 2005 and 2020, simply reflects improvements in observational capabilities since 1970 and is unlikely to be a true climate trend, say a team of hurricane experts."
Physicist: ‘No evidence climate change is causing tornadoes to become more frequent & stronger’
Climate ‘scam’: An ‘all-encompassing fraud’ with ‘authoritarians & corporatists bent on achieving even more centralized political power & economic wealth’
Ed Ring: What is actually beyond debate is not that we are in a climate crisis but that if we don’t stop destroying our conventional energy economy, we are going to be in a civilizational crisis. Energy is the foundation of everything—prosperity, freedom, upward mobility, national wealth, individual economic independence, functional water and transportation infrastructure, commercial-scale agriculture, mining, and industry. Without energy, it all goes dark. And “renewables” are not even remotely capable of replacing oil, gas, coal, nuclear, and hydroelectric power. It’s impossible. The only people who think renewables are capable of replacing conventional energy are either uninformed, innumerate, or corrupt. Period. ...
Were America’s oil and gas companies simply supposed to believe all these nascent theories and shut down? What exactly should they have done, back in the mid-1960s, to cope with this allegedly looming climate emergency? Were solar panels and wind turbines ready for rapid deployment back then? Of course not, especially since solar panels from China, and wind turbines from Germany, are still not capable of providing more than a small fraction of the energy we need. The real crime, if you want to call it that, isn’t that oil and gas companies questioned climate change theories back in the 1960s or ’70s. It’s that they’re accepting them now.
