Despite the fact that hurricanes in the U.S. are at a record low, global warming alarmists have been quick to seize upon these natural disasters as evidence of man-made global warming. Well-known climate alarmist Brad Johnson issued a press release that called on political candidates to acknowledge that “Hurricane Sandy is a true Frankenstorm, a monster created by man tampering with nature with oil, coal, and gas pollution.”
And Tedd Glick at Grist Mag said that Sandy “is God’s revenge for the refusal of the U.S. government to take action on the climate crisis.” Never mind the fact that history is full of similar storms when temperatures and CO2 levels were lower.
Anthony Watts has put together an excellent run-down of the facts about Hurricane Sandy, global warming, and history over at WattsUpWithThat.com:
The only way to deal with propagandic pinheads such as this is to counter with real facts, and then whenever his propaganda appears, put those facts right back into the venue wherever it appears through comments, emails, and letters. . . .
Don’t believe political shills like Brad Johnson as he doesn’t rely on facts, but rather, fear. That makes him and those like him that say Hurricane Sandy is some sort of “wrath” for human behavior he and his buddies don’t like not only unreliable and idiotic in their approach, but malfeasant to boot.
