Global warming activists exploit Typhoon Haiyan

In the wake of the tragic typhoon Yolanda that killed over 5,000 people in the Philippines, climate activists attempted to blame it on man-made global warming. Marc Morano, editor of ClimateDepot.com, says this is incorrect:

“Typhoon Haiyan, far from being quote ‘the strongest storm ever’ as claimed by global warming activists, was only the seventh strongest storm to ever hit the Philippines and there were 57 super typhoons since 1950 that were more powerful than Haiyan. Global warming activists have exploited the issue of Typhoon Haiyan for cheap political purposes in order to help secure a UN global treaty. Don’t believe the hype. The science is clear: there is no ‘new normal’ in extreme weather.”
