Attribution For North Carolina Hurricanes

North Carolina has been hit by 56 hurricanes since 1851, including six from 1953 to 1955 – but according to the Washington Post, the next one is President Trump’s fault.

    They’re slipping. Haven’t they blamed Trump for the last Ice age and the extinction of the dinosaurs yet?

    • Josh says:

      Hurricane Hazel too was Cat 4 hitting NC, but since it was before 1979, Putin hacked the records so that the leftists forgot about this.

    • Johansen says:

      rapscallion… Trump has in essence has just ‘beat’ CBS. Does anyone realize this?! They were the ones that came after him as a woman hater. The attacks bounced off Trump (in terms of his ratings), and now CBS has been decimated and exposed as the lying hypocrites they are! This is incredible! They just lost *another* executive, in addition to Moonves and Rose. ’60 Minutes’ has been beat. I personally find this very satisfying

      • Johansen says:

        Jeff Fager is his name. Chief Executive of ’60 Minutes’. These guys (Moonves, Rose, etc) were busy fondling the women around the office and demanding oral sex in exchange for employment , while viciously attacking Trump on their network. They’re all out (and will no doubt face expensive civil litigation) while Trump goes on. This is unprecedented in the history of politics and media

      • Tomb says:

        Trump has the power of God. First he’s responsible for the hurricane,so since it weakens that must mean he caused it to weaken.

  2. Douglas Hoyt says:

    If the Washington Post climate policies were adopted, eastern North Carolina would have thousands of windmills. A hurricane would blow down or destroy many of these windmills, causing more damage than would otherwise occur. The WP policy lacks wisdom.

    Here we go!!!

    Wrightsville Beach is basically the beach front of Wilmington, NC. I used to run to there during a long project and ran along the beach front street…The Pier has a NOAA Weather Station. 8658163…

    https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/stationhome.html?id=8658163

    Florence is forecast to pass within 30 miles of this land station (NOAA once told me bouys’ wind speed are unreliable in hurricanes (although they measure the same numbers as their land counterparts).

    I am betting we will not see one windspeed in this area of stations over 100mph…anybody want to take the the other side?

    • Cam says:

      For info, since the wind-speed given is in knots, anything above 87 kn is over 100 mph.

    • AndrewDC says:

      Florence markedly weakened overnight. If any station on land has sustained 75 mph winds, I will be shocked. The alarmists thought they had a live one with Florence that would give them huge credibility. Instead they have big time egg on their faces and several hundred thousand angry people who spent multiple days in hotels at their own expense for absolutely nothing.

      The Great Atlantic Hurricane of 1944 has undergone remarkable Orwellian “reanalysis”. There was a report of a peak wind of 144 mph at Cape Henry, VA, that has been expunged from the record books. Also a ship report of a 26.85″ central barometric pressure has likewise been expunged.
      Running their climate models backward, leading climate scientists have determined that it was impossible to have that strong a hurricane with safe levels of CO2!

    It’s gotten so easy to predict the behavior of news companies and see it play out day after day. They over dramatize weather event with the language they use to try to instill more fear in people who are already facing a fearful situation, until recently when category 4 Florence became category 2 Florence. I suspect that the exaggerated language is meant to drive up the emotions to get more clicks and more money as well as to prime the pump for the article that will be published a few hours or days later about the coming apocalypse of climate change brought to you by your science styled version of Jack Van Impe. I have a question. What do you believe is the purpose of NOAA and NASA in altering the data to support climate change? What benefit do you believe they are after to push this narrative? A simple internet search only leads to more pro-climate change information, so I’d like to hear the other side if I could.

    • DCA says:

      “No matter if the science of global warming is all phony…climate change [provides] the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.” – Former Canadian Minister of the Environment, to editors and reporters of the Calgary Herald, 1988.

    • DCA says:

      Also, this:
      “…one has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. Instead, climate change policy is about how we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth…” – IPCC official Ottmar Edenhofer, November 2010

    • Jason Calley says:

      Hey Kevin! “I have a question. What do you believe is the purpose of NOAA and NASA in altering the data to support climate change? What benefit do you believe they are after to push this narrative?”

      Lacking a way of peering into someone’s mind in a search for personal motivations, the following is, of necessity, an opinion rather than iron clad fact. Remember however, that all policy, even public and national policy, is the result of discrete individuals making decision according to their own will. There is no “national decision” on anything, there is only “individual people in positions of authority making decisions.” Based on my past observations of individuals, (especially those working in large corporate environments), I think that the most likely motivation for managers of NOAA and NASA doing this fraud is simple self interest, just what they need to do to secure their personal futures, and assure that they continue to get regular promotions and paychecks, along with the various perks that accompany their jobs. The perks may even be a desire for some level of personal fame or respectability in certain circles. This is basically the same thing that Twain speaks of in his essay “Corn Pone Opinions”. https://havlicek.weebly.com/uploads/6/8/5/2/685209/corn_pone_opinions_twain.pdf

      As for why their jobs and paycheck depend on promulgating their lies, that is more difficult. Obviously someone(s) in high levels of politics or finance are pushing this agenda. I think that DCA is correct in his example. People in high control (upper politicians, big CEOs, bankers, etc.) normally get to where they are because they have an insatiable desire for power and control over other people. Put out a sugar pile and you will soon get insects who desire sugar. Create a position of great power and you soon get people who love power. The CAGW fraud leads to great power for a small class of people. Just as past civilizations were often controlled by those who regulated water or trade, today’s civilization based on high energy consumption, would be controlled by anyone who can claim control over energy usage. The entire basis of CAGW is to provide a plausible sounding reason to give control of energy to a group of people who desire power over others.

      Really? This is not rocket surgery.

      What do all governments want more of? Money and power. Controlling CO2 means controlling literally every aspect of human life.

    When this question came up at work today one of our managers replied, “Nope, Pelosi gets credit. She stood on the coast and her ugliness knocked the wind out of it.”

    • arn says:

      That’s why germany never gets hit by hurricanes.
      We’ve got Merkel.
      I wonder that there is any wind here :)

      topic:
      Trump was born before 1953 so there is a great chance to put the blame on him for 1953-55 hurricanes.

    Weakening further. Now only sustained winds of 100 mph. Might only be a cat 1 when it comes ashore.
