- Trump Disputes Death Toll From Hurricane Maria Was 3,000 – Puerto Rican Gov. admitted higher ‘death toll is only an approximation, not a concrete list of names’
CNN still relying on that debunked Puerto Rico death toll to bash Trump - 'Harvard study had an insanely huge margin of error, putting a low estimate of 798 and a high of over 8,000, w/ a horribly unscientific methodology...researchers took one number — 15 deaths identified from a survey of 3,299 households — and extrapolated that to come up with 4,645 deaths across the island."
Flashback: Puerto Rican Gov. admitted higher 'death toll is only an approximation, not a concrete list of names'
The death toll is 'a very broad estimate for the number of people who died above what you’d expect to see in a normal year' - 'But that number is not a count of the death toll in Puerto Rico caused by Hurricane Maria. Instead, it’s just the midpoint of a wide-ranging estimate of the possible number of deaths'

- DESPITE RECORD LOSSES IN 2017, GLOBAL CATASTROPHE LOSSES ARE TRENDING DOWN
- Analysis: Global weather related disaster loss trend is downward from 1990 to 2017
Extreme weather expert Dr. Roger Pielke Jr.: The figure above shows the annual costs of weather disasters (data from Munich Re) as a proportion of global GDP (data from the UN), from 1990 to 2017.
2017 ranks 2nd to 2005;
The dataset is dominated by US hurricanes (accounting for about 70% of losses);
The trend from 1990 to 2017 is downward;
6 of past 10 years have been below average;
- 2017 Global Hurricane Activity Almost 20% Below Normal …Southern Hemisphere Near Record Low
- CO2 Emissions Growing Strongly Again
Le Quere has this to say in the Tyndall Centre’s press release on the topic today:
This year we have seen how climate change can amplify the impacts of hurricanes with more intense rainfall, higher sea levels and warmer ocean conditions favouring more powerful storms.
As we know, there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever for this statement.
It is a sad state of affairs when supposedly objective scientists are prepared to lie to support their beliefs.
- 2017 Hurricane Season: Empirical Evidence Confirms Activity Not Unprecedented – Overall, Close To Average — So Far
'The 2017 season in the Atlantic region is not even ranked among the top 5 historically in 6 of 7 key metrics (so far) through mid-October.'
"While Atlantic has obviously had very active #hurricane season, N. Hemisphere has experienced average TC activity by most metrics to date," hurricane expert Phil Klotzbach wrote on October 16, 2017.
- GORE: GLOBAL WARMING IS MAKING WILDFIRES AND HURRICANES WORSE
The 9th annual conference comes during a time where ongoing wildfires are ripping through northern California, leaving at least 35 people dead across four counties. “All over the West we’re seeing these fires get much, much worse,” said Gore, theLas Vegas Sun reports. “The underlying cause is the heat.” In particular, he blamed the reliance on fossil fuels for allowing hurricanes to get as destructive as they have been. “The heart of it is that we still depend on fossil fuels,” he said.
- Warmist Naomi Klein warns of ‘climate chaos’ – Declares: Trump presidency ‘could echo through geologic time’
Warmist Naomi Klein tells UK Labour Party convention about a "world so upside down" due to "climate chaos."
"Whether it's climate change or the nuclear threat, Trump represents a crisis -- that if left unchecked -- could echo through geologic time."
"It's bleak out there. A world so upside down...Whole regions rocked by climate chaos."
"The Caribbean and the southern U.S. are in the midst of an unprecedented hurricane season. Pounded by storm after record breaking storm."
Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry: ‘The UN IPCC Reports have become ‘bumper sticker’ climate science’ – Report lobbies for ‘politically manufactured consensus’
Curry: " The IPCC Reports have become 'bumper sticker' climate science – making a political statement while using the overall reputation of science to give authority to a politically manufactured consensus." ... "The IPCC has strayed far from its chartered role of assessing the scientific literature in support of policy making. The entire framing of the IPCC Reports is now around the mitigation of climate change through emissions reductions. Not only has the IPCC increasingly taken on a stance of explicit political advocacy, but it is misleading policy makers by its continued emphasis on extreme climate outcomes driven by the implausible extreme emissions scenarios." ...
"The most important finding of the past 5 years is that the extreme emissions scenarios RCP8.5 and SSP5-8.5, commonly referred to as 'business-as-usual' scenarios, are now widely recognized as implausible. These extreme scenarios have been dropped by UN Conference of the Parties to the UN Climate Agreement. However, the new Synthesis Report continues to emphasize these extreme scenarios, while this important finding is buried in a footnote: “Very high emission scenarios have become less likely but cannot be ruled out.”
Great Water Reset: The UN & WEF are coming for your water now! ‘Sustainable development’ water dictates – Aim to ‘achieve internationally agreed water-related goals’
Cheryl K. Chumley: The United Nations plans to protect water that’s used for bathing; water that’s used for developments; water that’s home to sea life; water that’s used for transportation. So the up-and-coming controls would likely focus on residential limits to water usage, and costly increases to access that water; on bans on agricultural usage, and costly increases on farmers; on strict controls on the types and numbers of ships that can sail the seas and rivers and channels, and costly increases for this form of transportation. ... as with carbon offsets, the U.N. water czars will demand trades of activities to offset the supposed pollution of the waterways.
So much for jet skiing. So much for fishing on the weekends with the family. It’ll be too expensive — and regulated.
“Natural resources crises, including for water and food, come within the top 10 biggest risks facing humanity in the coming decade,” the World Economic Forum wrote. ... “[A]s global warming continues to take effect, ordinary weather is becoming a thing of the past, exacerbating our water crisis,” the World Economic Forum wrote.

Lawyers Seek To Add Stock Of Lawyer Jokes By Demanding Oil Companies Be Prosecuted For Homicide
So if using oil is murder—and it has to be murder and not manslaughter, for our authors know of what they do—then lawyer Donald Braman and “public citizen” David Arkush are murderers. Perhaps they’ll turn themselves in? If it isn’t ink, it’s the gas they put in their cars, or the fuel in the planes in which they fly, or in heating or cooling their home, or running the electricity to pay for their Netflix accounts, or in manufacturing the clothes they wear, or in the plastic which surrounds them in their own homes, or in growing the food they eat. There is no way these sad individuals can remove the charge of hypocrisy, or escape the logic of their own argument. ...
If this “lethal harm”, caused by use of oil, is indeed “unparalleled in human history”, then our authors, who knowingly participate in this lethal harm, damn themselves. None of this can, or must, be taken seriously. The charge is absurd. It is asinine. It can only be the result of, as I said, lowly greed, or worse, profound stupidity and irresponsibility.
