CLEVELAND - I saw and heard some very disturbing things on television on Tuesday. What I SAW was live television video showing a tornado tearing through a Dallas, Texas business park. The most amazing site was seeing the twister pick up empty semi tractor-trailers and toss them hundreds of feet in the air like toys. Only to drop them, crashing to the ground in a unrecognizable mess of metal. Ah, the awesomeness of nature!
What I HEARD was even more disturbing. I watched a cable television meteorologist, a former Weather Channel met, blame yesterday's Texas tornadoes on...(drum role) climate change! Sigh. This is what she said with a straight face: "Thats kind of the climate change we are seeing. You know, extremes are kind of ruling the roost and really what we are seeing, more become the norm. So, let me get this straight: a tornado in Texas in April is extreme? Tuesday's small EF-2 tornado was the result of global warming/climate change/climate disruption? Really! Who'd have thunk it!
The ridiculousness continued: "This global warming is really kind of a misnomer, the CNN Weather Anchor said. Its global climate change. So...severe is more severe.
As far as I’m concerned, there’s no real evidence to prove an increase in tornadoes. There are more people to see them and our detection equipment is better but that doesn’t mean more tornadoes.
Mark goes on to point out that, with regard to any increase in damage dollar amounts, the rush for federal disaster relief results in the reporting of relatively minor storm damage that may not have been reported in the past.
I recently read some indian legends and a couple of them sounded like descriptions of tornadoes. Black Wind Man was an angry brave who wandered the plains destroying any villages in his path. Another was Coyote and the whirlwind.
North Texas is and has been called tornado alley for a reason. Most homes in that area have tornado shelters for a reason, and it is not to store junk.
Reminds me of “The Battle of Fallen Timbers”, where U.S. troops fought against a group of Indians at a site that acquired its name from all the trees that had been blown down from some kind of windstorm. Now, wind storms take their gratest toll on wood, and because of rot, the evidence of the destruction doesn’t last all that long, so that upcoming generationsw of humans might be scratching their heads as to why something was named what it was named...
The night the British burned the White House is another example of “extreme weather”. Some 30 British troops were killed by weather and only 1 was listed as killed in action.
He may be inheriting the esteemed mantle of Dick Goddard. If you can accurately predict the weather in Cleveland you are GOOD. PS: Goddard has also on several occasions eviscerated AGW and human induced Climate Change as total nonsense.
Saw the video and it looked like a semi-trailer in the air and the tractor was no where in sight.
