The Chicago Tribune says that Rock River flooding is caused by “climate change” – and is “only going to get worse.”
Climate change has already started disrupting life in the Great Lakes region — and it’s only going to get worse – Chicago Tribune
Had anyone at the Chicago Tribune bothered to do any research, they would have known that floods there happen very frequently, including 1929, 1937, 1948, 1952, 1965, 1969, 1973, 1979, 1993 and 1997. They had three floods in 1952 alone. But why would anyone expect newspaper reporters to read their own newspaper? Climate prophets don’t need research, because they have their superstition to guide them.

Yes, but this time the flood waters might be warmer (or colder) than in the past, which is a classic sign of climate change. We will need to wait and see what the Climate Models tell us.
… and they’ll probably contain more man made CO2 and not so much natural CO2. Also this flood water may be wetter then it would have been before we started pumping out vast quantities of CO2 raising the temperature by, um, about .3 deg C in the last 40 years! Yup must be all of the above.
Yes, we will need to wait and see what the Great and Powerful Oz will say.
All you have to do is think back to the Journalism Club at your high school. These same idiots now run the major newspapers
“Unencumbered by the thought process.”
What would it take for this pack of idiots question even the smallest of their beliefs?
