Think Progress didn’t even wait until the funerals of the victims were over before trying to shamelessly politicize a weather event that has now killed over 300 people while trying to lead “deniers” to believe they had it coming:
They do mention the storms were the worst “in decades,” but don’t seem interested to ask themselves what caused them decades ago.
Did you catch the subtle change in approach? “Climate pollution” — not “warming” or even “change”… but “pollution.” It sure is hard to deny there’s “pollution” out there, isn’t it? Now they don’t even have to prove that the planet is trending cooler or warmer to explain hurricanes, floods and tornadoes. All they just need to do is throw some tin cans alongside the road and get a cow to fart nearby and they’ve got all they need to blame weather patterns that are as old as the planet on human activity.
I’m no meteorologist, but I do know a little about tornadoes. However, one thing I didn’t know is that they have political vendettas:
The congressional delegations of these states â€” Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, Virginia, and Kentucky â€” overwhelmingly voted to reject the science that polluting the climate is dangerous. They are deliberately ignoring the warnings from scientists.
Now not only is climate “neglect” (or whatever level the scam has now been elevated to) causing killer tornadoes, but those tornadoes are targeting areas inhabited by climate deniers? They make it sound like Al Gore now has a hit-man on the payroll.
Here’s one possible answer that doesn’t fit the agenda behind the climate sham so you’ll never hear it offered as a possibility:
Craig Fugate, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), also dismissed Thursday climate change as a factor in the deadly tornadoes: “Actually what we’re seeing is springtime,” he said.
“Springtime”? According to Think Progress, if that guy doesn’t drink the Kool Aid fast, he’s going to get nailed by a tornado.
If you read this article, it explains a favorite argument among the Gorebots that there are “more storms” and more people are harmed by them now than 50 or 100 years ago. The reasons are, among many, better tracking technology and that there are simply more people. Normally that would go in the “Duh” file but the left’s feigned ignorance (not feigned in many cases) knows no bounds when trillions of dollars is at stake.
Remember when Pat Robertson said Hurricane Katrina was punishment for US sin? The left (and much of the right for that matter) mercilessly mocked him as a kook — and now Think Progress goes and does the same damn thing. Go figure.
Update: NBC’s Brian Williams wonders if the tornadoes were caused by “something we have done.” Given the collective Obamagasm-induced body heat that’s been radiating from MSM newsrooms into the atmosphere (including from Brian Williams) for the past three years, I’d have to say “definitely” to that.
