Napolitano on weird weather and climate change: 'There's a pattern here' By Zack Colman - 07/05/12 04:02 PM ET
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano this week linked climate change with the wildfires hitting Colorado.
Napolitano said theres a pattern here as she noted the summer wildfires as well as the East Coast heat wave and the high-velocity winds that whipped through the mid-Atlantic late last week. Thousands of people remain without electricity because of the wind storm.
Asked point blank if the wildfires were caused by climate change, Napolitano responded, It could be a lot of different things.
But then she explained her view, which seemed to make a connection between climate change and the weather events.
You have to look at climate change over a period of years, not just one summer, Napolitano said. You could always have one abnormal summer. But when you see one after another after another then you can see, yeah, theres a pattern here.
Napolitanos comments came in response to a question at a press conference Tuesday in Colorado Springs. They were posted by Climate Desk.
In response to a question about whether the federal government is ready for weather changes caused by climate change, Napolitano said the federal government is adapting.
I think that we are preparing. We understand and we are seeing the changing weather patterns. We are seeing right now in what already has been a difficult summer, Napolitano said.
So yes, we incorporate some of that into our planning, Napolitano said. What do we need? Do techniques need to change? Tactics need to change? This is not a static universe that we live in.
Because until AlGore made up global warming, there was never ANY “crazy” weather anywhere. Ever. Never.
So an incompetent attorney/bureaucrat is now an expert on Marxist propaganda disguised as “climate science”?
If nothing else, the Communists have been very successful at cultivating compliant, fiercely loyal, Useful Idiots.
yeah, I too have noticed this pattern. Every summer it seems to get hot and then every winter it gets cold. what’s going on here?
The pattern is folks like her using whatever they can to excuse increasing their control over the masses.
You have to look at climate change over a period of years, not just one summer, Napolitano said.
I’ll give you a HUGE Mulligan Nappy. If you can provide REAL, not-projected and not theorized, in depth climate data back to ONLY the year 1000, maybe then you and your other Bolshevik propagandists can START to scratch the surface of the enormously complex subject of Climate patterns.
That is a huge concession, but you and your army of lying, grant-seeking, dead assed “scientists” can’t come even close to that basic requirement.
Can she explain why California is having a mild summer so far in the northern San Joaquin Valley? Only one 100 degree day so far. I amazes me that hot weather in the summer is news. I was raised on an Iowa farm where we had no air-conditioning. We did not need the government warning us to drink water. No one provided us cooling centers. We looked after the elderly on our road without the government telling us. I think Janet needs to stop being such a busy body.
Maybe Janet should look into the possible connection between terrorism and these wildfires. That is alledgedly her area of expertise.
Ms N couldn’t judge a checkerboard pattern if it hit her in the head.
Please, MS libtard, leave science to grownups who actually pursuid real majors in college...which pretty much elimiates all of you in the Obamacretin administration.
Shove it up your smelly Obama, Janet.
Can’t wait to send all of these bozos packing!
They have been nothing but a four year scourge and nightmare on our country.
The latest Senior Climatologist chimes in.
Are you sure?
I noticed that the days are hot and the nights cold. If I leave my windows open at night to cool the house, the furnace kicks on. I don't know whether to put on a sweater or take it off.
Summer Fall Winter Spring - wasn’t there an Indian princess by that name? Or is that that gal that is running for office on the east coast that has a great grandmother with high cheekbones?
Maybe the Head of the Department of Homely Security should change career to Meteorologist.
They are always wrong, so nobody will notice what a @$$ she is.
Maybe Obama finally got his mitts on the HAARP project and it baking us to “prove” gore-bull warming supposedly exists.
