Uh-oh! Hurricane season is here
again. And with climate change the storms are more frequent
and stronger… except… they aren’t. The fact is,
the media and climate change campaigners have been lying
to you. Yes, I know it’s hard to believe that the news media
would be unduly hyping anything that draws more attention to
themselves, but the evidence is clear that’s what they are
doing. Landfalls of major hurricanes in the U.S. have
actually declined over the past 140 years, long before humans
began burning large quantities of fossil fuels. And the downward
trend in storms is holding steady over the past several
decades. As Roger Pielke Jr., professor of Environmental Studies
at the University of Colorado testified before Congress,
“The world is presently in an era of unusually low weather
disasters.” Pielke Jr. points out that both hurricane landfalls and
strength were “down by approximately 20 percent since 1900,” and
according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration the worst decade for major hurricanes
was the 1940s. In fact, as this chart shows: As CO2 as increased
in the atmosphere, landfalling hurricanes have actually declined
in the United States. The Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change itself reported in 2013 that “No
robust trends in annual numbers of tropical storms, hurricanes
and major hurricane counts have been identified over the past 100
years in the North Atlantic Basin.” A 2016 analysis by Kenneth Richard
found 33 peer reviewed scientific papers revealing a lack of
connection between global warming and climate change.
But what about the recent hurricanes: Michael, Irma,
Maria and Harvey. Don’t they prove that hurricane activity
is beginning to ramp up. In a word? No. What the media has largely
ignored is the fact that between 2005 and 2017 no major
hurricanes made landfall. In the United States. A major hurricane is defined as a
Category 3 or larger. That 12-year span was the largest extended
period of no major hurricanes hitting the U.S. mainland
since at least 1900, and possibly even the
U.S. Civil War! The U.S. had an amazing vacation
from major hurricane activity during that time. When Harvey hit it 2017,
it was simply a return to normal. You might remember some
climatologists and media outlets claiming that the enormous amount
of rain associated with Hurricane Harvey was due to climate change.
Penn State Professor Michael Mann wrote in an op-ed piece:
“It’s a fact. Climate change made Hurricane Harvey more deadly.”
In truth, Harvey was more destructive and deadly because it got trapped
between a high pressure system in the west and another system in
the east, which is extremely rare. As Climatologist Judith Curry
said at the time, “Anyone blaming Hurricane Harvey on global warming
doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The huge amounts of rain are
associated with Harvey’s stalled movement.” If hurricanes aren’t
more frequent or powerful, what’s really going on here, besides
the media hyping gloom and doom for their own purposes? Well, perhaps Roy
Spencer, a research scientist whose work has been funded by NASA, NOAA
and the Department of Energy said it best: “In order for politicians
to advance policy goals, such as forcing expensive solar energy
on the masses or creating a carbon tax, they have to turn
normal weather disasters into ‘evidence’ of climate change.” I
couldn’t have said it better myself. For the Clear Energy Alliance,
I’m Marc Morano. Power On.

  1. The hurricane/climate change hysteria frustrates the hell out of me. Thanks to the trash media, lies circle the globe several times before the factual evidence sees the light of day.

    I read one scientific paper during the peak of the hurricane fearmongering that determined climate change–at best–contributes a fraction of a percent to hurricane strength.

  2. CBS news has stopped reporting the real temperatures and now only reports INDEX TEMPERATURES, which represent the real temperature plus some digits added on to compensate for humidity which will make you feel hotter. Using this scam CBS is trying to convince the public that ordinary hot summer days in the South are evidence of the world coming to an end because we burn fossil fuels in our cars. Read the ACCUWeather climate report on media exaggerations at
    Climate change is a new age religion and a Left Wing political scam. Average Earth temperatures have only risen about .08 degrees Celsius since 1880 according to NASA. How the hell is that a "climate crisis?

  3. Just remember last month when all the elites had that party on that private Italian island to talk about climate change. After they either flew in on private jets or on mega yachts spewing carbon to tell the unwashed masses how to live their lives! We are peasants to these people!

  4. Why does this channel have so few subs? Need to get this in front of Rush. His audience would definitely support and help spread the message.

  5. Yeah, duh, It may not be causing MORE hurricanes. But it is 100% causing MORE SEVERE hurricanes… Who is funding this bs operation… (oil companies)

  6. Keep an eye on terror activity in the US. With all the media hyped up fear of lone shooters, the international terror activity is increasing through the phone system. Calls are being made from overseas to US public institutions like hospitals with shooting threats. This causes the hospital to 'lock down' meaning no one can come or go. This will eventually cause enough fear to cause death. We need to calm down about the shooters because we are fueling their cause. What happened in Philly is a good example. It was just a drug bust gone wrong, but everyone is relating it to El Paso and Dayton.
