Today, after his vacation in Delaware, Crazy Uncle Joe toured New Jersey to look at the damage from Hurricane Ida,
He was screaming that the “Existential threat of climate change” is a “Code Red“, whatever the ‘F‘ that means. All the climate ‘scientists’ such as Chuckie Schumer, AOC, and the like, keep saying that the loss of life from Hurricane Ida was because the weather is more severe as a result of, wait for it, climate change.
Hurricane Ida was a Category 4 hurricane that became the SECOND MOST damaging hurricane to hit Louisiana. The most damaging was Katrina in 2005, 16 years ago. Hurricane Ida is tied for the strongest maximum winds at landfall with the Last Island Hurricane of, wait for it, 1856, 165 years ago!!!
Once again, riddle me this all you oh wise people of science. WHY is it that the most destructive hurricane was 16 years ago and the windspeed was the same as a hurricane 165 years ago?
Shouldn’t Ida be the worst hurricane on record as the EXISTENTIAL THREAT of climate change is making the weather more severe according the the prognosticators of science?
Shouldn’t an 1856 hurricane have had LESS wind speed than a hurricane of today? We didn’t have automobiles, trucks, airplanes, and power plants pumping out EXISTENTIAL THREATENING carbon emissions 165 years ago,. There were fewer people producing less EXISTENTIAL THREATENING carbon emissions and a lot more forested land to sequester carbon. China and India were just backwards countries way back then and NOT the EXISTENTIAL THREATENING, carbon spewing industrial behemoths. Weather should have been LESS severe using the ‘science‘ proclaimed by the intellectual class.
Almost all weather related events were WORSE in the past than they are today.
Now ‘splain to me again how the Greenie New Dealers are 100% sure spending our tax dollars will solve this “EXISTENTIAL crisis“.
Oh wait, maybe the weather will get worse because of ‘white supremacy‘ and ‘systemic racism’. Or it’s Trump’s fault.
