The Mexico Earthquake Is ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

In case you missed it

(ABC News)  At least 15 people were killed as a magnitude-8.1 earthquake rocked Mexico late Thursday night, leveling buildings in southern Mexico, triggering tsunami warning in several countries and causing people to flee into the street, buildings to sway and lights to go out in Mexico City, some 650 miles from the quake’s epicenter.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, who said the quake was 8.2 in magnitude, called it the strongest the country has seen in a century. The U.S. Geological Survey measured it at 8.1 magnitude.

The powerful temblor occurred some 50 miles southwest of Pijijiapan, Mexico, off the coast of the southern Mexican state of Chiapas, at 11:49 p.m. local time (12:49 a.m. ET), according to the USGS. The depth of the earthquake was 43 miles, the USGS said.

You know what’s coming, right?

    Test. Are we back on yet?

    It is astonishing to me what percentage of people are complete scientific illiterates, and that is putting it as kindly as I can.

    Run for the hills boys. We’ve had two hurricanes so far this season and we are all total idiots if we dont believe in global warming.

    Some interesting reading from a professor who is a firm believer in Global Climate change:

    The phase changes over the equatorial Pacific Ocean are known as La Nina and El Nino. A cooler-than-average phase in the equatorial Pacific is referred to as “La Nina” while a warmer-than-average phase is called “El Nino.”

    Trends in the Atlantic Hurricane Season from year to year can be traced back to the La Nina and El Nino phases over the Pacific. Through extensive research, Dr. William Gray of Colorado State University discovered that La Nina cycles produce more Atlantic hurricanes while El Nino cycles produce fewer Atlantic hurricanes.

    One of the main reasons this conclusion was drawn is that the wind shear is typically lower across the Atlantic during La Nina than in El Nino years.

    From this years NOAA/National Weather Service Climate prediction center.

    ENSO Alert System Status: Not Active

    Synopsis: ENSO-neutral is favored (~85% chance during Jul-Sep, decreasing to ~55% during Dec-Feb) through the Northern Hemisphere winter 2017-18.

    During July, ENSO-neutral continued, as equatorial sea surface temperatures (SSTs) were near average across most of the Pacific Ocean [Fig. 1]. The latest weekly Niño SST index values were close to zero in all four Niño regions [Fig. 2], having recently decreased from higher levels in the Niño-4 and Niño-3.4 regions. The upper-ocean heat content anomaly was near average during July [Fig. 3], reflecting below-average temperatures along the thermocline across the central and eastern Pacific overlain by slightly above-average temperatures.

    Translation. La Nina will produce more Hurricanes. We are currently in a La Nina period. Therefore we will historically have more hurricanes.

    Its about the science. Factual science.
