Warmist Peter Sinclair: 'I fear this approach plays into the hands of the paranoid/conspiracy mindset of climate deniers. Nobody has come to put them in FEMA camps, no Obama Brownshirts marching in the streets, and no churches replaced with gay mosques, so they’ve been looking for something like this to fire up the crazies. That said..
As climate impacts continue to become clearer to the general populace, fossil fuel executives, and climate misinformers who have played a part in this catastrophe, may some time soon prefer a safe jail cell to the torches and pitchforks that are coming their way.'
Accuweather: "During the month of May, the United States saw 288 preliminary reports of tornadoes, above the May average of 276 tornadoes. None of these storms were rated as stronger than an EF2, marking the first time there has not been a tornado of EF3 strength or stronger in May since 1950, when record-keeping began. There were also no deadly tornadoes in the U.S. in May, making this the first year without a killer tornado in May since 2014." ...
"This year has been a quiet one for severe storms in general," said AccuWeather Senior Weather Editor and Meteorologist Jesse Ferrell. ... The U.S. is experiencing a separate tornado-related drought — one that may delight those who fear some of nature’s most powerful storms. No EF5 tornadoes have been recorded in the U.S. for more than eight years, eclipsing the previous record, which was the period between the May 3, 1999, Moore F5 tornado and the May 4, 2007, Greensburg, Kansas EF5 tornado.
