The climate here includes bracing weather!
Never been different.
Where my pie at?
and intense hurricanes in 2011
We had a SINGLE hurricane hit the United States in 2011, it was Irene, and it was a Category 1. It happened to hit multiple heavily populated areas, so it did a lot of monetary damage, but it wasn't an "intense hurricane".
We also got hit by a tropical storm.
We did set a record for the second highest total NUMBER of tornadoes, but not for the most damage, or the most severe.
They are just paving the way for a carbon tax. First, us, then the UN. This is about political power, not floodoing.
IF BLOOMBERG REALLY BELIEVED THAT NEW YORK WAS GOING TO BE FLOODED, WHY THE HELL DID HE NOT PUT A SEAWALL AROUND BATTERY PARK???? The entire Lower Manhattan was flooded because that Bloombozo did not take the necessary preemptive action. /s
BY HIS OWN STANDARDS, Bloomberg is guilty of negligence.
Fixed the title
just think a few years ago it was called weather. How’s your weather ? How’s your global warming ?
The lessons I learned when I moved to Austin regarding Climate:
1) It is HOT in Texas
2) It may not rain for months at a time.
3) When it rains, it pours and then it floods
4) Hurricanes are a fact of life
5) So Are tornado
Texas have adapted and adjust accordingly to this simple phenomenon called the F__KING WEATHER!
I am pretty much convinced that every country in the world is affected by climate.
My Admiral Fitzroy’s Storm Glass 19th century weather forcasting gizmo says it’s going to be calm and dry tomorrow. Good enough.
And the more such pride that I see in publications and policies, the more difficult weather that we seem to receive. Wait until more prideful folks see what’s going on with the drought. Maybe an extended minimum (fluctuations more toward cold) after this solar maximum drought will make them more humble. Maybe not. It’s the greatest occasional show on earth. Let’s watch it play out.
