Although "many" policymakers still engage in climate change denial, the group writes on an accompanying website, "The scientific community is in agreement: Climate change is the reason why we’re experiencing more and more frequent and intense weather, including extreme hurricanes and tropical storms."
Um, apparently these zealots didnt get the latest climate change memo. The hurricane scare isnt working, because the climate isnt cooperating..there is a historic dearth of hurricanes!
Climate campaigners seem to think they have a winner with a takedown of elected officials who reject global warming science, in which fake news reports talk of the turmoil and tragedy created by Hurricane Marco Rubio, Hurricane James Inhofe, Hurricane John Boehner and more.
The trouble is, the science on a connection between hurricanes and global warming is going in the opposite direction, if the near-final draft of next month’s climate science assessment from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is any indication.
Al Gore's anti-science propaganda piece "An Inconvenient Truth" relied heavily on scare tactics regarding hurricanes, based on the major hurricanes that hit at the time...and in an interview this month, the huckster Gore wrongly claimed that there is now a Category 6 hurricane because of global warming, and wrongly claimed there is more extreme weather today...
"Sure, rising seas will make any storm surge worse. That’s about it in terms of making the case that tropical cyclone danger is rising in a human-heated world. The climate panel foresees fewer hurricanes, overall, but a rise in strength in those that do form. In the meantime, statistical analysis by federal climate scientists points to a decline in the number of hurricanes making landfall in the United States since the mid 1800s."
Oh, wait, another blog tells us "rising temperatures will bring more intense storms later this century"....later this century, eh?
Perhaps we should name new growing glaciers, thriving polar bear populations and cool summers like this one, after global warming phony hucksters...
We had an "Al Gore" summer here, unseasonably cool ! The zealot global warming kook Michael Mann campaigned in Virginia for Democrats, insulting all Republicans along the way as 'anti-science' ...he deserves a winter storm named after him!
