Tropical Storm Arthur forms off coast of Florida; 1st named storm of the Atlantic season.
Tropical weather ping!
Global Warming, Climate Change and Global Cooling combined to create this horrendously potentially dangerous reaction from Mother Nature in response to my driving a frigging truck that gets 18 MPG.....
Cue Arthur’s theme song, “The Best That You Can Do”
by Chris Cross
Arthur he does what he pleases...
How do the liberals explain that we had violent hurricanes and various extreme weather, long before we had coal fired power plants and SUVs driving around???
During the last ice age, Chicago was buried under a mile of ice. Didn’t it take global warming to melt all of that ice? Would we be better off if all of that ice didn’t melt? Is global warming necessarily a bad thing, since we needed global warming to end the ice ages in earth’s history?????
Maybe I’ll stop by the local Arthur Treacher’s and pick up some fish and chips!
As we all know, tropical storms and hurricanes did not occur before global warming.
Libs already screaming and pulling their hair out.
Chicago would definitely have been better off had that ice not melted.
Latest discussion (doesn’t look real good for Hatteras if it strengthens more than they think - which is what Bastardi believes):

TROPICAL STORM ARTHUR DISCUSSION NUMBER 3
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL012014
1100 AM EDT TUE JUL 01 2014
Radar and satellite imagery indicate that the convective
organization of the cyclone has improved since the previous
advisory, and the cyclone is being upgraded based on a sustained
wind report of 33 kt from Settlement Point (SPGF1) on Grand Bahama
Island earlier this morning that was outside of the deep convection.
After remaining nearly stationary earlier this morning, Arthur
appears to to be drifting northwestward now with an uncertain motion
of 315/02 kt. Otherwise, there is no significant change to the
previous forecast track. The latest model guidance has continued the
trend of a pronounced mid-tropospheric trough digging southeastward
from the upper-midwest into the northeastern and mid-Atlantic region
of the United States by 72 hours. The 500 mb flow pattern is almost
identical in the GFS and ECMWF models, which increases the
confidence in this evolving pattern. As a result, a steady increase
in southwesterly steering flow over the southeastern United States
is expected to gradually turn the tropical cyclone northward over
the next 24-36 hours, and then accelerate the system faster toward
the northeast on Thursday and Friday. By Days 4 and 5, Arthur is
forecast to move over the far north Atlantic as an extratropical
cyclone. The NHC track forecast is just an update of the previous
advisory track, and lies down the middle of the tightly packed
guidance envelope close to the consensus model TVCA.
Northwesterly vertical wind shear is forecast by the models to
gradually subside over the next 48 hours, which should allow the
cyclone to develop its own upper-level outflow pattern. In fact,
latest visible and water vapor imagery indicates that cirrus
outflow has been expanding on the north side of the system during
the past few hours, suggesting that the shear conditions could
already be subsiding. The low shear conditions and warm
sea-surface temperatures should allow for at least steady
strengthening, and the cyclone is expected to become a hurricane by
72 hours. The official intensity forecast is similar to the
latest intensity model consensus IVCN through 36 hours, and then
slightly higher after that.

Oddly, there are two UNNAMED storms off the West Coast. One of them is bigger than this one.
You mean without the Daley machine, Rahm Emmanuel, Jeremiah Wright, and Barack Obama? You surely raise up a dilemma...
You’re an environmental criminal!
But the Climate Change Channel is so excited because they finally have something to talk about....
Lol, pretty much sums it up, except I might remind to add in there, breathing! That caused it as well ;-)
Sheesh - and people think Bastardi is an alarmist... at least he's honest about giving scenarios that are all about trying to inform people for the sake of saving lives.
Let’s be inclusive. Tropical Storm Arturo.
When I went to bed last night, this thing was falling apart with loss of its circular pattern. In 12 hours, it’s reorganized and grown enough to be named. Although most tracks have it going off to the east, it still bears watching for the July 4 weekend if it gets large enough to affect the coast.
From a prior RUSH transcript:
RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I have something, we're going to post this at RushLimbaugh.com immediately. The webmaster is waiting on it. Algore has a new book out. It's called Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis. And this book, according to our official climatologist here, Dr. Roy Spencer, University of Alabama at Huntsville, formerly of NASA, Dr. Spencer tells me that this Gore book is a metaphor for his twisting of reality to suit his needs. He took some NASA imagery of the earth and Photoshopped the following into it. And we've got a website here with both pictures: the original snapshot of the earth from NASA, and then the way Gore Photoshopped it. And here's what's on the picture that's Photoshopped: four hurricanes that were not there. The hurricane closest to Florida is spinning in the wrong direction. The hurricane off of South America is almost on the equator, which is physically impossible for hurricanes. All of the sea ice in the Arctic Ocean is removed, but snow cover over Canada and Alaska remains. Cuba, in Gore's Photoshopped picture of the earth, Cuba doesn't exist. It is not there. Cuba is totally underwater, which would require a sea level rise of over 6,000 feet, which means Denver would be underwater as well. If Cuber is under water, so would be Denver! Now, half of the Greenland ice sheet is gone, but it's out of the center; the thickest part, rather than around the edges, where it's the thinnest. It's a joke! This man is an absolute joke! He's Photoshopped a picture of the earth.
Someone call the government, OH GOD!!!!!!
