Newest Prognostication: Hotcoldwetdry Will Increase Lightning Strikes

You had to use a hair dryer, take a 5 minute shower, and drive a fossil fueled vehicle to work today, stopping to pick up a breakfast sandwich, so, this will all be your fault. If it happens. Because it might mayba

Lightning Strikes 50 Percent More Often with Climate Change

We already know that climate change is increasing the likelihood of daily floodstornadoes and heat waves. Now, new research shows that lightning will strike 50 percent more often in our warming world, though where these electric shocks will occur remains a mystery.

Actually, most of that has already been debunked, and, even if true (notice they left out tropical storms), there is no proof of anthropogenic causation.

Currently, there are about 20 million lighting strikes each year in the United States, igniting deadly wildfires and threatening to strike buildings and even people, the NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory reports. And with climate change causing average global temperatures to rise, this number is only expected to increase.

Except for that 18+ year pause.

Based on 11 climate models, the new study, published in the journal Science, predicts that for every one degree Celsius of global warming, lightning strikes will increase by about 12 percent. Overall, that means that for every two lightning strikes in 2000, there will be three in 2100. However, scientists don’t yet know where or when exactly these upsurges will occur.

So, our old friends the climate models. Which have failed 95% of the time. But, hey, scientists climahysterics don’t quite know yet how this will occur. So, give them lots more money to research their already published prognostications that they say will happen.

This is not science. It’s a cult.
