Dear Southern Storm Victims: You are dead because you didn't believe in global warming
Liberal hate site Think Progress ("When you Think Progress - think stupid") has a jaw dropping blog post that is beyond "I told ya so" with regards to the dubious connection between climate change and severe weather. The headline says it all:
Storms Kill Over 250 Americans In States Represented By Climate Pollution Deniers
Note the slavish devotion to the cockamamie administration idea that CO2 is pollution. Someone should tell them that licking the boots of politicians in cases where even the administration knows they themselves are full of bull only makes the boot lickers look pathetic.
But what is up with that headline?
"Given that global warming is unequivocal," climate scientist Kevin Trenberth cautioned the American Meteorological Society in January of this year, "the null hypothesis should be that all weather events are affected by global warming rather than the inane statements along the lines of ‘of course we cannot attribute any particular weather event to global warming.'"Kevin Trenberth is one of the lead authors of the UN IPCC Reports which failed to incorporate skeptical analysis from responsible opponents and predicted such events as Himalayan glaciers melting based on unproved research. It is a flawed document that climate change religionists treat as their Bible.
The congressional delegations of these states - Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, Virginia, and Kentucky - overwhelmingly voted to reject the science that polluting the climate is dangerous. They are deliberately ignoring the warnings from scientists.
The problem with Trenberth's statement is that it is laughably false. If we are to take the position that all weather events are the result of global warming, then how about non-events? How about a less than predicted number of hurricanes as we had last year? If bad hurricane season prove global warming, then few hurricanes must prove it's a crock.
Neither is true. Trenberth knows better but he also knows where his bread is buttered; grants and position due to his unwavering support for warming and vicious attacks against critics. Imagine him coming out tomorrow in opposition to the IPCC. How long do you think he'd have a job?
Scientists who have so much vested in the global warming industry are as suspect as those who receive grants from industry. They are both shilling for a master other than scientific truth.
Think Progress exhibits the empathy of a marmoset. To try and blame the victims of the storm for their own deaths because they didn't "believe" in global warming (scientists - real ones - neither "believe" or "deny" warming. They examine the evidence and either agree or disagree with the hypothesis) and had no "faith" that charlatans pushing this theory for their own nefarious agenda were correct.
Next time a storm kills someone from a blue state, I'll be eager to see what Think Progress has to say about that.
