The New York Times invents its own climate science to attack Florida

When a hurricane hits, good liberal supporters must unleash their mockery on rubies who haven’t followed through on their doomsday climate change prophecies.

Even if said proponents have to fabricate science to back up their claim.


Such is the case with the New York Timeswhich required two writers, Christopher Flavelle and Jonathan Weisman, to cobble together an incoherent piece mocking Floridians for not listening to them and electing Democrats to fight climate change. “Florida Leaders Reject Key Climate Laws,” the headline read. “Now they are looking for help in the event of a storm.”

Flavelle and Weisman say Republican leaders in Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis and senses Rick Scott and Marco Rubio, “don’t want to discuss the underlying problem that makes hurricanes more powerful and destructive.” They also say rising sea levels and warming temperatures made Hurricane Ian worse and that Republicans are to blame for not backing the Democratic Party’s climate change bill. (You know, the one they claimed at the time was about reducing inflation.)

In reality, hurricanes do not become “more powerful and destructive”. There is no evidence for this claim. According to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, “there is virtually no long-term trend in the number of hurricanes.” NOAA’s page on global warming and hurricanes has an “overview of current research results”. In summary, he concludes that there is “no convincing evidence for a substantial century-scale greenhouse warming-induced increase in: the frequency of tropical storms, hurricanes, or major hurricanes, or in the proportion of hurricanes that become major hurricanes.

It’s already enough to drop the microphone. But on top of that, like Michael Shellenberger Remarks, these hurricanes cause more damage because more people live and thrive in these areas. “Once you adjust to increasing wealth, there is no tendency for damage to increase,” Shellenberger writes.

Is Hurricane Ian itself more dangerous due to climate change, as Flavelle and Weisman claim? No, there is no proof of that. Acting NOAA Director Jamie Rhome specifically warned against linking climate change to a natural disaster on CNN with Don Lemon, who pathetically pleaded with him to say otherwise. But Rhome insisted on sticking to the real science. “I don’t think you can tie climate change to any particular event,” Rhome said.

Those damn NOAA science deniers of President Joe Biden strike again.

Liberal activists (including those posing as journalists) preach to “follow the science,” yet they now claim to know more about hurricanes than NOAA. (Check Rhome identifiers for yourself and wonder how Flavelle and Weisman think they know more about hurricanes than he does.) They’ve been reduced to just pointing fingers at every natural disaster and shouting climate change, then demanding that everyone supports this whole liberal mess that conveniently conforms to all their biases on the subject.

Climate change alarmism has nothing to do with science, because New York Times usefully and unintentionally illustrated here. It is a matter of partisan politics, which is why the New York Times and others were eager to attack Florida for not immediately submitting to their destructive climate agenda.
