As we know, drought, flood, tornadoes, heat cold, more hurricanes, fewer hurricanes and everything from prostitution to emigration are all 'consistent with' global warming. Jeff Nesbit is a journalist, not a scientist.
And, our old friend, Michael Mann has also opined,
That is not what the science shows. Here is the graph for the United States.
Here is the ACE index, which combines hurricane strength and numbers, for the entire world.
Two years ago, faster-moving hurricanes were 'consistent with' global warming. Now, it is slow-moving hurricanes. Remember: the catastrophic global warming movement is about power and money. It is not about 'saving the earth.'
