“Linking hurricane rainfall to global warming today (and even decades from now) based upon such a tiny contribution is misleading.”
How should Washington prioritize spending in times of crisis?
NOAA has posted some spectacularly speculative numbers claiming that Hurricane Harvey's record rainfall was so rare as to be unnatural. This is the attribution game; the new wave of alarmist pseudoscience.
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen rebuts arguments from alarmists that recent hurricanes are evidences of the damages of global warming. Indeed, Driessen shows how the use of fossil fuels has dramatically reduced the cost in human life from hurricanes and other severe weather events.
CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen quotes multiple climate scientists who explain that high-rainfall tropical storms have battered the Texas coast (and Florida) for generations of recorded history (and likely long before). Thus, the efforts to tie Hurricane Harvey to "climate change" are "disgraceful" -- and ignore the reality that Houston was built on impermeable clays and reclaimed swamp lands with a history of subsidence.
