Climatologist Roy Spencer pointed out that those claims were unsubstantiated. “Unfortunately, there seems to be a trend toward classifying events as ‘1 in 1,000 years,’ when there is no way of knowing such things...Remember, it is perfectly normal to have a 1 in 100-year event every year...as long as they occur in different locations. That’s how weather records work.”
Marc Morano on "The Weather Lottery": Your chance of the winning the lottery is very low, but the chance of someone, somewhere winning the lottery are very high. The climate campaigners and the media essentially hype the “winners” of the extreme weather lottery, wherever they are, and attempt to imply these events are happening everywhere. Extreme weather always strikes somewhere at some time, and it always will, so there is no shortage of examples of “record” storms. Lotteries and casinos do the same thing in their ads—showing the winners, and implying that you are just one ticket or spin away from joining them.
Meteorologist Topper Shutt explained the misuse of the term 100-year flood after Hurricane Harvey hit Houston in 2017. “A 500-year flood does not mean that an area will see a flood of that magnitude once in 500 years. It means that in any given year there is a .2% chance of a 500-year flood and likewise a 1% chance every year for a 100-year flood,” Shutt wrote. “Remember, we are talking about billions of years of climate and usually just a hundred years of actual, observational data."
Morano: "Not everyone, however, is a fan of Warren's legislation... "This is virtue signaling of the highest order for her Democratic base, Marc Morano, the editor of ClimateDepot.com, said on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday. He argued that Warren's bill would give the U.S. government and the Securities and Exchange Commission extensive power to go after companies and "shake them down."
Morano: "My book details the absurdity of all of this, pay up or face bad weather. The government has to protect us from bad weather."
Scholarly studies confirm that witch trials were on the upswing during the Little Ice Age. According to a 2012 Live Science article, “Historical records indicate that, worldwide, witch hunts occur more often during cold periods, possibly because people look for scapegoats to blame for crop failures and general economic hardship. Fitting the pattern, scholars argue that cold weather may have spurred the infamous Salem witch trials in 1692.” ...
Princeton Professor Emeritus of Physics William Happer in 2017 drew parallels to today’s man-made climate change claims. “I don’t see a whole lot of difference between the consensus on climate change and the consensus on witches. At the witch trials in Salem the judges were educated at Harvard. This was supposedly 100 percent science. The one or two people who said there were no witches were immediately hung. Not much has changed,” Happer quipped. ...
Salem State University historian Emerson Baker’s research agrees with Oster’s findings. “A harsh New England winter really may have set the stage for accusations of witchcraft,” noted a Live Science analysis of Baker’s research. The bad weather may have helped stir up the population’s psychological state into a full-blown mass hysteria.
Morano: "President Donald Trump may be presiding over the disintegration of the UN Paris climate pact,” said Climate Depot’s Marc Morano, adding that the U.S. decision “set a global example and it may have led to the agreement potentially teetering on the brink of its own survival.”
Marc Morano, the publisher of the influential Washington-based website ClimateDepot.com, said that many of America’s most strident leftist environmental activist groups are heavily financed by Russian money. He said those efforts seek to hamper the U.S. economy by inhibiting the use of fossil fuels and encouraging the wasting of government funds on research into implausible man-caused climate change. Morano’s new book “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change” is considered one of the most complete guides to the history of the greatest fraud in history: man-caused climate change.
