Tornado activity has been near record lows, so Bloomberg wants you to forget about them and focus on The Empire State Building being struck by lightning as evidence of “climate change.”
It’s largely our own fault.
The Empire State Building actually gets struck by lightning an average of once every four days.
Every short term rainfall record in the US occurred before 1980. In 1956, Maryland received over an inch of rain in one minute.
Then the geniuses at Bloomberg claim that 8-10 inches of rain in 12 hours in West Virginia is a “1,000 years rain.”
In 1943, West Virginia had almost 14 inches of rain in one hour. Apparently that must have been more than 1,000 years ago. Pennsylvania had 34 inches of rain in 12 hours in 1942.
Climate alarmists are no different from 16th century Europeans who burned 15,000 witches for “cooking the weather.” They observe ordinary events, and convince themselves that it is unprecedented and somebody’s fault.
