How climate change is being blamed for Harvey after a dozen years without a major hurricane

Before Harvey, it had been a record 12 years since a major hurricane made landfall in the United States, but that hasn’t stopped the climate change movement from blaming the Category 4 storm on global warming.

A torrent of claims linking Hurricane Harvey to climate change surfaced after the storm hit Corpus Christi, Texas, late Friday, bringing catastrophic flooding and an unprecedented 50 inches of rain by Tuesday as the system stalled over the Houston area.

“Harvey is what climate change looks like,” meteorologist and climate activist Eric Holthaus declared Tuesday in Politico magazine.

Climate Reality Project, founded by former Vice President Al Gore, argued that “climate change makes hurricanes more devastating,” while 350.org called the storm “an unnatural disaster” and “the product of both a hotter planet and this administration’s climate denial, racism and callousness.”

    If you look back in history you will find that the same things were happening in the 1930s, and 1940s as seen from pictures of Houston streets flooded in front of Sears and Roebuck on main street in the 1940s. So it really is a cycleable
    weather condition and has been going on for years.

    Let’s be clear. 10-15 years ago ALL the global warming predictions that said anything about hurricanes, called for an INCREASE in hurricanes over this past decade. They could not have been more wrong. All as in 100% of their predictions on global warming induced temperature rises, severe weather, and hurricanes have been as wrong as wrong can be. To say so is not a denial of science, rather it is an ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF WHERE SCIENCE CURRENTLY STANDS as it relates to understanding and predicting our global climate.
    I live in earthquake country (California). Everybody knows science cannot currently predict earthquakes. To say so isn’t to deny science. It is simply acknowledging where science currently stands in its understanding of earthquakes.

    Only the alt-left liberal mindset would blame “racism” for a hurricane. These people are shameless. Since Obama promised money to the Climate Change Chicken Littles, nothing bad happened in his 8 years, is that how it goes? (Sandy was obviously the fault of the Republicans in Congress) Now that Trump told them the Congress allocates money, and he’s not going to ask for it, all the sudden Mother Nature dumped another storm on us. Is that how their “thinking” “works”? Some idiot, sorry – Professor blamed Karma for dousing Texas with the storm because they voted for Trump. If that’s the case, stand by California and New York for a biblical apocalypse for voting for Clinton.

      Maybe this is it since this area voted for hillary and the mayor is a democrat. Does that mean liberals caused this?

        You can only blame nature for weather, no matter how hard you try.

    Sure; could be. Doubtful, and there is no real evidence of it, but why not take this opportunity to make a pitch to con millions of hardworking taxpayers out of more of our money and put more harmful regulations on everyone that makes it more costly to live?

    1. Worried Vet says:

      Thats what Obama did. Whats sad is Houston voted for Hillary and the mayor is a democrat. So now why the hurricane, to punish liberals for voting for hillary or because they believe in climate change? This is a real example of making it fit their agenda true or not. They don’t care and they wonder how anyone cant believe their crap. Maybe lies and more lies, plus shoving crap down our throats is why liberals are losing and even liberals are tired of it. Keep it up and liberals will disappear and go back to being democrat or conservative.

        That is pure BS.
