Damp Squib Irma Spares Mar-a-Lago; Wreaks Havoc on Climate Chicken Littles

Irma is now officially the most disastrous hurricane in the history of the world…
…But only if you’re a radical Muslim or a climate alarmist or you work in the construction industry.

For the last week, all the usual suspects from green hedgefunder Tom “rhymes with liar” Steyer to anti-capitalist disaster harpie Naomi Klein – plus their de facto allies in Islamic State – have been wetting their knickers with excitement at the prospect of a biblical inundation to rival Noah’s flood.

Instead the worst possible thing happened.

Not only did Irma fail to destroy nearly as many Trump-voting Floridian homes and businesses as they had hoped; but it left the mother of all targets – Mar-a-Lago – without virtually a scratch.

One Last Time – Hurricane Harvey Had Nothing Whatsoever to Do with ‘Climate Change’

All week some of the very worst people in climate activism have been trying to make political mileage out of Hurricane Harvey.

They range from the inevitable Naomi Klein

NOW IS EXACTLY the time to talk about climate change, and all the other systemic injustices — from racial profiling to economic austerity — that turn disasters like Harvey into human catastrophes.

…and the inevitable Michael “Hide the Decline” Mann

Climate change worsened the impact of Hurricane Harvey.

…to whichever disgruntled, anti-Trump, predictably left-wing NOAA employee runs the @altnoaa Twitter account:

What all these blowhard charlatans have in common is that they are all talking drivel. They are, as the EPA rightly says, attempting “to politicize an ongoing tragedy.”

As scientists – or, in Klein’s case, people with pretensions to having scientific evidence on their side – they really ought to know better than to pin man-made climate change on a natural meteorological event which has nothing whatsoever to do with man-made climate change.
