And give us our treats!!!!
It’s one thing when a scientific dunce in the form of California’s Senator Barbara “Ma’am” Boxer says the F-5 that hit Moore Oklahoma is caused by global warming. You kind of expect such unprovable nonsense from her. But when a guy who touts himself as “The Science Guy” says the same thing… Well, I can’t let that go by.
Because the actual scientific measurements provided by NOAA of tornadoes rated F-3 and above simply does not support the statements made by Senator Boxer and Bill Nye. Even with the incredible increase in our ability to detect tornado activity in the last 20 years due to greatly improved Dopplar radar technology, the trend for larger tornado formation since 1954, is down!
Strange thing is…. Bill Nye and other strong advocates for the alarmist anthropogenic global warming faction could make an argument that AGW affects tornadoes. The formation of tornadoes relies of both warmer air AND cold air, something Nye doesn’t seem to know. Global warming might be affecting the frequency of tornado formation because it’s causing a decrease in cold systems aloft, making larger tornadoes LESS likely.
And the real world observations provided by NOAA supports that hypothesis, as the trend of observed larger tornado occurrences does seem to have decreased a bit over the years.
But a trend of LESS larger tornadoes just isn’t useful to the global warming alarmist industrial complex, so they’re not going to follow what the real world observations seem to be suggesting.
NOTE – I’m gay, so I have no idea if this is true! At one gig, many many (juni) moons ago, a chick did try to pick me up first, before all the other members of the band. After I rebuffed her advances, she then went for the guitarist. I was her first choice…. I later learned she was insane.
Oh…. There is apparently a caveat to this rule after all!
Before I continue, let me say I LOVE this guy! Not only because he’s a hero, but his interviews show him to be a true and honest guy. He is who he is, one of the many unique Americans that are around us every day!
But, unfortunately, he has a problem. You see, he lives in Cleveland, which is predominantly Democrat (the part of town where Ramsey lives – voted 80% for the imcumbent). He goes to McDonalds, which, according to some GOP talkers, is typical of many poor Democrats. He talks improper English, which is also said to be typical of Democrats. And, the worst part… He’s black, and 90 percent of African Americans vote Democrat.
So, if Ramsey is indeed a Democrat, and if you follow the latest meme about non-Republican voters spouted by the GOP since they lost to President Obama in November, Charles Ramsey is, most likely, a “low information voter”!
Right now, he’s a hero. But in a few weeks, he’ll be back to being a “low information voter”. And just wait until Obama has him up at the White House! That will certainly piss them off.
OK. I understand the bitterness that comes when the fates of politics don’t go your way. But I’ve been really ticked at a faction of the vocal Republicans and Conservatives who constantly label everyone who didn’t vote for Romney or the GOP in the last election as “low information voters”. It’s insulting. If they are concerned at all about trying to win hearts and minds so that they can maybe attract more voters, this is the worst thing they can do. I will keep harping on this, and when the next election comes around, if they are still using this terminology, I will make sure that the general public knows of the contempt the modern GOP has for the average voter.
