Investor's Business Daily POC#28 - “In short, it's part of a long-term weather pattern — not climate change.
Think of weather as the agent that transfers the broiling heat and atmospheric moisture of the tropics into the colder polar regions. Increasing heat will increase the amount of energy and moisture weather patterns need to transport. Quite simple. Quite inevitable.
David Archer, Professor of Geophysical Sciences at the University of Chicago, explains the relationship between the use of fossil fuel, the natural concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and the ability of human society to recognize and understand anthropogenically triggered climate change.

Investor's Business Daily POC#29 - “And a look at the number of hurricanes by decade shows conclusively that the number and severity of hurricanes have mostly declined in recent decades, not risen.”
Investor's Business Daily POC#30 - “"There is no reason to be debating Harvey and climate change in the context of an unfolding disaster, other than political opportunism and attention-seeking,”
Beside this is supposed to be a constructive important dialogue not some petty political debate game.
Unless we honestly face what's coming, more and worse, and discuss it and get in touch with down to earth realities we'll have no chance of coping.
Investor's Business Daily POC#31 - “said climate scientist and University of Colorado Professor Roger Pielke.”
Investor's Business Daily POC#32 - "It's not a good look for scientists or journalists who are promoting this issue.”
Investor's Business Daily POC#33 - “Pielke destroys the notion that global warming has made hurricanes or tropical storms worse by noting that from 1926 to 1969, a period of 44 years, there were 14 category 4 hurricanes that made landfall. From 1970 to 2017, or 47 years, there have been just four.”
Pielke “destroys” geophysics with statistical gamesmanship. POW, BAM, ZAP. Why am I not impressed Roger?
Investor's Business Daily POC#34 - “If anything, if you were a global warming advocate and being honest, you'd have to say that higher temperatures have caused the number of severe hurricanes hitting the U.S. to decline by 70%.”
What an amazing term, George Orwell would be impressed.
Investor's Business Daily POC#35 - “All of the news shows, newspapers, news websites and magazines will be peddling the same shamanistic nonsense:”
Investor's Business Daily POC#36 - “Global warming is to blame for everything nasty in the natural world, but especially for the brutal hurricanes that occasionally rip into our coast. But the facts show it just ain't true.”
Have they no notion of how much we depend on moderate predictable weather patterns in every aspect of our lives and economy from general wellbeing, to infrastructure, food production, power production, industry, construction, transportation, etc., etc.?
Allow me to introduce you to our Earth, our mother and sustainer in every sense of the word.
Most of us have spent the past decades satisfying our imaginations with Hollywood fantasies and other distractions. Thus, we doomed our future to the most difficult of times. Now, even given all the horrors we're watching go down, these GOP dunderheads and astro-turfers are still at it. Hypnotizing themselves and conning others to continue believing nothing is going on and that we shouldn’t take any responsibility for anything.
They want us not to even think about it.
These guys are criminal in every sense of the word.
I weep for my children.
