The Inconsistencies on Climate Change

I don’t care about climate change. It really is not my issue. I think the left has latched on to it as a religious exercise. But aren’t they somewhat admitting they think it is a good thing.

First, they tell us we have been experiencing climate change for a decade.

Then they have to acknowledge that during that time they’ve been predicting massive hurricanes and frequent hurricanes. The result? We’ve barely had any hurricanes.

Now we’ve had Harvey, which dumped a ton of rain, but was nowhere near as destructive as Katrina or as deadly as the hurricane that hit Galveston in 1900.

Now they’re telling us Harvey is caused by global warming, but a great many scientists who even embrace climate change say that this is not actually so. In fact, most of the flooding had more to do with Houston’s impermeable surface cover that has grown exponentially in the past ten years than because of the massive rainfall from Harvey.

And on top of it all, the left now thinks that Harvey is Mother Nature’s way of punishing those awful polluting bigots in Texas who burn fossil fuels. Seems like they actually think it is a good thing.

Personally, I still think it is cyclical. Either way, we have had fewer hurricanes than the left said we would have. And the flooding and destruction had more to do with construction than climate change.

But, as they say, never let a crisis go to waste. They’ll make this all about climate change, science be damned.
