Four people died in West Virginia flooding after eight inches of rain in 24 hours. Scientists declared this to be a global warming induced apocalypse.
According to the National Weather Service Office, the 24-hour rainfall there was 8.17 inches.
One hundred years ago, during one of NASA’s coldest years ever, 125 people died in West Virginia flooding.
The US record for one hour rainfall was set in West Virginia in 1943, when they received nearly 14 inches of rain in one hour. The US record for 24 hour rainfall is 43 inches set in 1979 – more than 500% of what was received in West Virginia this week. All US short term rainfall records were set when CO2 was below 350 PPM.
There is no evidence that the West Virginia floods were record floods, and no evidence that the rainfall had any link to global warming. But climate scientists receive funding for scaring people, so facts are irrelevant to them.
