    Global warming zealots never let a storm go to waste

    To point out that there is an historic hurricane drought and tornado drought in the US shows one's scientific ignorance of the complex science of global climate change. Also that the mean temperature has gone down since 1997, is irrelevent.

    However, for the religion of global warming, one storm, whether Hurricane Sandy or an historic storm in the Phillipines, means global warming is real, baby! But while some in the cult of global warming are praying for the people of the Philippines, they’re also praying they can score some sweet, sweet political points.

    Never let a super typhoon go to waste!

    Tweets from zealots:

    "Dear Small Minded GOP, Climate change is real. LOOK AT THE PHILIPPINES"

    Dr. Heidi Cullen of Climate Central wins the "First Haiyan BS award" claiming "deep ocean heat" fed storm...

    "If you live in the Philippines, you know climate change is a planetary emergency. Already. Not just a grim prospect for the future"

    "If you're a complete moron who doesn't believe in global warming and Haiyan doesn't make you change your tune, we're all f*cked."

    Yeah.  We really dodged a bullet there.

    FYI, tornadoes can't occur without humidity.  They usually co-incide with thunderstorms.  Maybe the reason we haven't seen many tornadoes recently is because the mid-west and half the country is neck-deep in epic drought.

    Global warming jihadist quote when there is a big storm: "The Phillipe typhoon is proof that our planet is heating up from man-made carbon emissions. We must do everything we can to limit carbon emissions or we will all die"

    Skeptic quote when there is much below average storm activity or if there is an abnormal cold snap somewhere: "Some global warming.Where is it? "

    Global jihadists' response: "Deniers! You can judge a long term pattern one isolated event"

    When the overarching forces that control the dynamic of a system change then the dynamics change and so there are new trends. Single insidents are caused by the current local circumstances but the extent to which long term changes affect fleeting conditions is not black and white.

    THe bottom line is that civilization is changing the balance of things. THis is changing trends. This will have increased long term effects. You can argue about the details to some extent though over time even the details will become better understood and forecastable.

    One possible factor I am ignorant of is to what extent if any a new ice age might have been in the offing over the next few thousand years and if this in fact might have been a possibility do the changes eliminate that possibility.

    On the other side is the potential for such great changes years in the future that we endanger much of our world. If you take the position that we should not leave overburdening debts to our children then you have to apply the same principles to laving them a healthy place to live.

    Science itself should not be political and applying science to the world - as we do in thousands of ways every day both as a species and as individuals - should be based on a combination of pragmatism and ethics. There is room to argue about exactly what we know and its implications. But the better something is understood the less there is to argue about. In this case the degree of knowledge has contiued to grow to the point where there is no doubt that we are having an effect.
