Here We Go: Huffington Post Links Hurricane Joaquin With ‘Climate Change’

Most news outlets have wisely stayed away from this proposition, something that is not based on science. Not Huffington Post’s Lydia O’Conner

How Climate Change Is Intensifying Hurricane Joaquin
Warmer oceans are making everything worse.

As the East Coast prepares for a possible Hurricane Joaquin landfall, experts warn that its intensity and potential for destruction are exacerbated by climate change.

Joaquin, which strengthened into a dangerous Category 4 hurricane on Thursday and battered sparsely populated Bahamian islands, will strengthen in the next 12 to 24 hours, the National Hurricane Center reported. Its current path has it nearing North Carolina and Virginia on Sunday or Monday, but mid-Atlantic and Northeast states will experience minor to moderate flooding over the weekend regardless of whether the hurricane makes landfall.

Joaquin’s quickly progressing strength can be tied to unprecedented sea surface temperatures in the hurricane’s vicinity, Michael Mann, director of the Earth System Science Center at Pennsylvania State University, told The Huffington Post.

“Joaquin has been traveling over a record-warm ocean surface and undoubtedly that has contributed to its rapid intensification,” he said. “In a very basic sense, warmer ocean surface temperatures mean there is more energy available to strengthen these storms. So we expect more intense hurricanes in general in a warmer world.”

Lydia goes on to use other “experts”, but fails to note that, despite the heat, there have been fewer hurricanes, and much fewer major hurricanes in the past few years. The US hasn’t experienced a category 3 or stronger in almost ten years, and, unless Joaquin takes a major turn to the west (it’s trending further and further east), the chance has become remote.

Hurricanes happen. Warmists, though, want to manufacture a condition where they are being created and/or made worse because Someone Else refused to make their lives carbon neutral.

Mann warned it’s likely we’ll be seeing more hurricanes of Joaquin’s strength.

“Based on our work, climate change is already leading to both more intense and larger hurricanes than before,” he said. “That translates to more frequent Sandy-like storm surges for New York and elsewhere.”

And we’re supposed to believe the computer models from the Cult of Climastrology

    that model proves that it is building and was created do to man driving a car and leading to a hotter environment thus this SUPERDOOPERSTORM is only one in a LONG line of SUPERDOOPERSTORMS that have occurred since man started living on this planet. We’ve been inundated by SUPERDOOPERSTORMS for far too long especially over these last few years, that if nothing is done to stop these SUPERDOOPERSTORMS then we’ll all die – either from flooding or heat. Some may die naturally, but most won’t.
