Scientific Rebuttal Of Kamala Harris’s Unscientific Climate Tweet
Honestly, sometimes I marvel at things like this.
It’s like shooting fish in a barrel.
Outrageous statements such as these are gifts that keep on giving.
Let’s check the facts:
1) Wildfires are less than 20% of the early 20th century in acreage burned.
2) Hurricane ACE index/storm near record lows this year, globally no increase. EPAC/WPAC well below average. So is total global production this season.
3) Much worse storms have always run rampant than what we see now. The list is legion and too numerous to name.
4) Heatwaves are nothing compared to the 1930s, and if you didn’t have rolling blackouts due to bad energy policy, there would be fewer problems.
Why the rest of the nation would want to adopt the example of California is beyond any rational person’s belief. Besides, cold kills more than warm, another fact ignored.
Obviously, the person making this statement either does not know these facts (or does) and simply seeks to hide them to push a false message. There can be no other conclusion.
Apparently, Kamala Harris does not understand that earlier periods were as warm as today and were called climate optimums, not climate emergencies. We can go on and on, but in this case, brevity makes the point.
