Why anyone listens to the morons on the green left any more is the only mystery left surrounding the now disproved theory of CO2 induced global warming.They are running around like Chicken Little screaming ‘the sky is falling, the sky is falling’ at each normal weather event now.
In a truly cosmic case of irony, the cries of doom prior to Irene landing came just as all the energy was dissipating from that storm and bringing the East Coast of America an above average wet weekend. For example take Brad Johnson, hand-wringer extraordinaire:
Hurricane Irene is bearing down on the Outer Banks of North Carolina as a Category Two storm, and is expected to track a path of destruction up the densely populated Atlantic coast, with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg ordering the first-ever mandatory evacuation of low-lying areas of the city. As the U.S. government report “Global Climate Change Impacts in the US” summarized in 2009, warming of the oceans is causing Atlantic hurricanes to become more intense and dangerous:
Before Brad could even catch is frightened breathe, Irene was falling apart yesterday afternoon. By this morning it limped to shore a Cat 1. Sadly, Brad is not the only easily excitable green lefty out there. Mayor Bloomberg probably pulled the trigger a little too quickly based on the ridiculous hype this storm has received. The Nanny state went into pure and pathetic melt down yesterday, and is not looking good this morning. Remember the story of the boy who cried “Wolf!” folks.
I suggest we remember humankind has survived much worse than this many times in our history, usually with much less technology and basically no warning at all. It is strange that all our fancy modern warnings have produced is rampant fear mongering- instead of sober preparations.
