From the New York Post, “Global-warming ‘proof’ is evaporating.”
The 2013 hurricane season just ended as one of the five quietest years since 1960. But don’t expect anyone who pointed to last year’s hurricanes as “proof” of the need to act against global warming to apologize; the warmists don’t work that way.
Warmist claims of a severe increase in hurricane activity go back to 2005 and Hurricane Katrina. The cover of Al Gore’s 2009 book, “Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis,” even features a satellite image of the globe with four major hurricanes superimposed.
Yet the evidence to the contrary was there all along. Back in 2005 I and others reviewed the entire hurricane record, which goes back over a century, and found no increase of any kind. Yes, we sometimes get bad storms — but no more frequently now than in the past. The advocates simply ignored that evidence — then repeated their false claims after Hurricane Sandy last year.
And the media play along. For example, it somehow wasn’t front-page news that committed believers in man-made global warming recently admitted there’s been no surface global warming for well over a decade and maybe none for decades more. Nor did we see warmists conceding that their explanation is essentially a confession that the previous warming may not have been man-made at all.
I realize everyone across icy America is exceedingly worried about “Global Warming” today, so to quell those nasty fears here is a brief look at the facts. Those in power are proceeding as if this nonsense is now beyond debate, while all of their dire predictions are as successful as the rollout of Obamacare.
The Executive Branch, via EPA regulation, is pressing ahead on things that will hamstring the American energy infrastructure, and significantly increase costs for anyone who desires to keep warm in the Winter, or keep cool in those “brutal, scary” Climate Change Summers.
Meanwhile, I’m certain the blowhard, newly converted vegan, Al Gore, is far away from his energy-hogging mansion in Middle Tennessee, spending lots of cash fraudulently earned from promoting false information about the environment.
