Sorry, Alarmists, Climate Chaos Is Not Here

The Federalist– Climate isn’t the same as weather—unless, of course, weather happens to be politically useful. In that case, weather portends climate apocalypse.

So warns Elizabeth Warren as she surveyed Iowan rainstorms, which she claims, like tornadoes and floods, are more frequent and severe. “Different parts of the country deal with different climate issues,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D–Malthusia) cautioned as she too warned of extreme tornadoes. “But ALL of these threats will be increasing in intensity as climate crisis grows and we fail to act appropriately.”

Sen. Jeff Merkley (D–Ore.) recently sent a fundraising email warning Democrats that climate change was causing “growing mega-fires, extremely destructive hurricanes, and horrific flooding” in which “American lives are at stake.”

Even if we pretend that passing a bazillion-dollar authoritarian Green New Deal would do anything to change the climate, there is no real-world evidence that today’s weather is increasingly threatening to human lives. By every quantifiable measure, in fact, we’re much safer despite the cataclysmal framing of every weather-related event.

How many of those taken in by alarmism realize that deaths from extreme weather have dropped somewhere around 99.9 percent since the 1920s? Heat and cold can still be killers, but thanks to increasingly reliable and affordable heating and cooling systems, and other luxuries of the age, the vast majority of Americans will never have to fear the climate in any genuine way.

Since 1980, death caused by all natural disasters and heat and cold is somewhere under 0.5 percent.  more here

  1. All the idiots talking like they’ve done extensive research into the climate. They probably need the instruction book to turn on their thermostat.

  2. When I left for work yesterday it was bright and sunny. Global Warming.
    When I left for work today it was overcast. Global Cooling.
    It’s so scary how the weather changes!!! But I’m sure driving an electric car will fix it!

  3. I’m sure they will be throwing tornadoes in the mix soon.

    Morons.

    Y’all got the air “cleaned up”, what did you expect?

  4. Lorenz (yes the discoverer of the Lorenz strange attractor) proved back in the 60s that long term weather forecasting is impossible. Climate occurs over much longer epochs and may be so chaotic that there is no normal or mean climate – it is most likely chaotic modal not obeying simple linear predictions that so called “climatologists “ use in their computer models. The math does not exist yet to understand the weather let alone the climate. The world is full of ignorant people that need to feel good about themselves so they created the church/cult of climatology.

  5. They’re nobody’s like the rest of us but want to feel like they’re making an impact.

  6. They’re climate auctioneers…The Worlds going to end 12….Can I

    get an 11 ….11…13…13 ..14…15…15..Young beta male in the front,

    15…15…C’mon Folks …I need a 14 or the lots being pulled.

  7. Have you noticed that outbursts from climate fear mongers peak twice a year?

    1. Sometime during tornado season (April-June, depending on the year).

    2. At the height of the hurricane season (usually September).

    And then there’s that little panic disturbance in the winter from those that think cold, snowy weather is caused by global warming.

    Holy crap, some people are stupid.

  8. No,no…you said by “…by every quantifiable measure, in fact, we’re much safer…”. That is really overstating it. Certainly by total death toll, weather is killing more now than in the past simply based on population growth alone. Have fun with it, but be careful.
