Christ, what a couple of idiots. Explaining anything to these Faux News indoctrinated ignoramuses is a complete waste of time.

I could try to pretend to respect their point of view, but not for long. I have no respect for willful ignorance. These clowns are part of the problem.

What if we take the view that he's trying to make denialists and skeptics look bad? He's actually on our side? It seems to be working.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Of course. The fire is lit and the dance begins. Valiant but fruitless. You claim ignorance on the part of those that do not believe. I would first consider taking your nose out of the sheep in front of you. Then I assure you that you can begin to smell the roses that prevail. They always will. Because they are real. That seriously must smell volatile after a while. Maybe not. Being placed there for a decade or two probably numbs the senses. Oh the horror.

I figure the more they are asked to back up their stance the more they reveal how fuking clueless they are. I always like it when people make themselves look stupid.

Not that I mind a good discussion, but when you take the phrase ignorance is bliss too seriously, it becomes more difficult to achieve lift-off.

So no, I ain't gonna miss Knotts...

I don't get it is Knott's really the Chief and booted for his "nose in the sheep in front of you" comment??

Personally I always got a kick out of his graphs with no explanation of what the initials meant or how to read the graph...it just let me know he had nothing, nada, zip

Vintage Oklahoma Climate Refugees? Decade Of Heat And Drought Forced most of Oklahoma's population to flee during the 1930s.

Really?
And it just got cooler again? What do the models say?

And where did all that dusty heat come from and where did it go?

the national weather service provided a warning 16 minutes before the tornado hit, the warning was upgraded to "emergency warning" with "heightened language" 5 minutes before the tornado hit. This did give time to get to safety...tragically some of the children died in the school because of flooding in the basement at the school (they drowned). Hoping now to find survivors in the devastation.

Does anyone have a link to studies regarding the severity of weather events like tornadoes and hurricanes that have increased in either number of events or intensity? Seems to me there are more events...

I think one of the problems with such a study would be the incomplete record of earlier extreme weather events. Tornadoes only touch down for minutes at a time. If there isn't a school or trailer park in the path, they could easily go undocumented. Hurricanes would probably be a better bet.

What's the difference between climate alarmists claiming tornados are earths vengeance for modern civilization,

and Westboro nuts claiming it's God's vengeance for homosexuality?


Same thought process.

just different gods.

TGT--where has anyone claimed that tornadoes are vengeance for modern civilization--we are saying there is CAUSE and EFFECT.

We are also saying with MODERN TECHNOLOGY we could free ourselves from burning fossil fuels that contribute to climate change thus eliminating or reducing the CAUSE and EFFECTS.

Unfortunately the BIG OIL, Multinational Corporations, and SUPERWEALTHY have suppressed the technologies that could enable this. They have also clouded the debate with MISINFORMATION.

Sadly people like you (who should be more intelligent than you demonstrate)are part of the problem...by refusing to acknowledge what is happening before your eyes.
