Coleman, a noted global warming skeptic, has long been countering claims by some scientists and liberal activists linking global warming to extreme weather. Liberals have already claimed Matthew was made stronger by global warming.

“Matthew has already set a number of records — and global warming is giving it a boost,” Joe Romm, ThinkProgress’ climate editor, wrote.

“Hurricane Matthew, a record-shattering storm that is unusual for October, is a reminder of climate change’s potential to turn seasonal weather events into extreme, year-round threats,” echoed Huffington Post reporter Lydia O’Connor.

Hurricane Matthew is currently pummeling the Florida coast after leaving john-colemanhundreds dead in Haiti. More than 600,000 Floridians have lost power, according to reports, and only one has died during the storm.

Matthew hasn’t made landfall, but is expected to soon. If it does, it will break an 11-year streak of no major hurricanes making landfall in the U.S.

    I doubt if the Clintons will use any of the $250 million they scammed from the Haiti earthquake. Not one penny went to assist Haiti. Only $250 million went into their personal bank account, the other millions went to friends and “donors”.

    It is their preservation strategy to avoid cognitive dissonance.

      Denialist? This is untrue we just want to see a viable mechanism which you don’t understand, but you still keep on with your one liner starments without meaning.
