For the first time in more than 80 years, the Atlantic Ocean hasn’t produced a named storm between July 3 and Aug. 31. So the Climatistas will have to celebrate Labor Day this year for its Marxist roots rather than the weather destruction they’re constantly rooting for so they can blame it on man.
The Atlantic’s failure to form a tempest is a rarity. It “has had no #hurricanes yet this year,” Colorado State University meteorologist Philip Klotzbach tweeted Thursday. 2022’s calm spell happens to be only the seventh time since 1950 that the Atlantic “has gone through August without a #hurricane. Other years are: 1967, 1984, 1988, 2001, 2002, 2013.”
In a separate tweet, Klotzbach acknowledged something that Democrats, the know-it-all media, and the agenda-driven extremists will likely never admit: “Forecasting the weather and climate keeps you humble!”
The Atlantic storms will eventually arrive. And the alarmists will blame them on human greenhouse gas emissions. It’s the blueprint. But for now, their taste for disaster has to go unsated as their narrative fails again.
Of course this is merely a single point of reality. There are others.
For instance, Arctic ice is at a decade-high level. Wasn’t supposed to disappear altogether by now due to our miserable fossil fuel addiction?
Then there’s the Great Barrier Reef, which “set new records for extent this year.” This, only a few months after the Washington Post, acting as a mouthpiece for the entire global warming racket, said “climate warming has dealt yet another blow to the Great Barrier Reef,” as it had just suffered its “sixth massive bleaching event.”
Have we left out any recent news? Oh, yes, there was the release of the World Climate Declaration, which calmly points out “there is no climate emergency.” More than 1,100 scientists and related professionals signed the document, including physics Nobel Prize laureate Ivar Giaever of Norway, and more than 235 professors.
Yet the nonsense persists. The Associated Press reported earlier this week that “Zombie ice from Greenland will raise sea level 10 inches.” Zombie? Haven’t the climate fanatics continually told us that they’re all about science?
Anyway, it’s “hokum,” according to Anthony Watts, who sends readers to a 1989 Associated Press story in which a senior United Nations “environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.”
“That claim voiced by the U.N. official was based on computer models projecting future sea levels,” says Watts. “Obviously, the models were wrong, because that claim never happened. Today, 22 years past the due date, not one country, not even a city, has been ‘wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels.'”
We’ve had enough of the lies, the exaggerations, the fearmongering, and the hypocrisy. We’d like to see a little honesty, even just a touch, and some humility. Otherwise, we’ll have no other choice but to believe that the climate crowd, which is roughly the entire left side of the political spectrum, is invested in establishing an authoritarian government that it controls.
