Well, we all knew they were going to start howling about Hurricane Sandy….. if you can call it a hurricane with its 75mph winds. This is why I posted the preparatory post Prepare For The Hurricane …….. Alarmism.
Climate Depot has some of the lunatic fringe’s inane blatherings.
Steve has done his usual great job in documenting past storms which blows up the lunatic “unprecedented” claims. And, Anthony has a great post up about this. He’s provided a great graphic which I’ll borrow.
The lunatic fringe things our use of coal and oil and well, just about anything which benefits humanity is evil. These things cause atmospheric CO2 to imperceptibly rise, and the dolts think this causes hurricanes or something. These are way different than the hurricanes which happened in the past. Things are different. Anthony shows how things are different.
If you read about someone making the claim that hurricanes are caused by CO2 or that we’re doing something to alter the weather, laugh at them, empirical evidence states otherwise.
Addendum: You should laugh at the alarmist fringe even if they don’t specifically make this claim about Sandy. They’re a bunch of nutjobs.
