What should have been done to prevent and prepare for the fires ravaging the West Coast?
You’re wasting your time if you ask Joe Biden.
The Democratic nominee offered no constructive solution that would actually have an impact, such as forest management, fire breaks, planning and emergency preparedness. Instead he read out an unbelievable list of radical global warming talking points that contrary to the scientific evidence, falsely attributes every extreme weather event to climate change. This is pure science fiction. Watch for yourself.
Here are a few shocking samples:
“It shouldn’t be so bad that millions of Americans live in the shadow of an orange sky and are left asking, ‘is doomsday here?’ And I know, I know this feeling of dread and anxiety extends well beyond the fires. We’re seeing record hurricane seasons, costing billions of dollars. Well last month Hurricane Laura intensified at a near record rate. Just before its landfall in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast. It’s a troubling marker, not just for the increased frequencies of the hurricanes, but more powerful and destructive storms. They’re causing record damage to people’s homes, lives, and livelihoods…
The Arctic is literally melting. Parts are actually on fire…
With every bout of nature’s fury caused by our own inaction on climate change, more Americans see and feel the devastation. Whether in a big city, small towns, on coastlines or on farmlands. It’s happening everywhere, and it’s happening now and it affects us all…
If we have four more years of Trump’s climate denial, how many suburbs will be burned? How many suburban neighborhoods will have been flooded out? How many suburbs will be burned away in superstorms?
If you give a climate arsonist four more years in the White House, why would anyone be surprised if we have more of America ablaze?
If you give a climate denier four more years in the White House, why would anyone be surprised when more of America is under water?
We need a president who respects science. Who understands that the damage from climate change is already here…”
WRONG, Mister Biden. You’ve just pulled an even worse climate hustle than CA Governor Newsom unleashed on 9/11.
The Wall Street Journal described it as “a speech that claims to revere science but is utterly detached from it.”
“As for climate and hurricanes,” The WSJ continued, “sigh, let’s repeat that there is little evidence that storm frequency and the modest global warming of the last century are linked. As scientist Roger Pielke Jr. has noted, hurricanes hitting the U.S. have not increased in frequency or intensity since 1900.”
Science tells us that hurricanes, fires, and floods are historically normal. The scientific data, as Craig Rucker laid out in his post on Governor Newsom, shows too little temperature change to attribute extreme weather events to human emissions.
Joe Biden has gone all-in on a radical climate hustle. This is as ignorant as it is dangerous.
America needs sound energy and environmental policies grounded in reality.
Joe Biden should not indulge in alarmist science fiction.
