Torrential Rains From Recent Hurricanes Is A Strong ‘Climate Change’ Signal Or Something

Hurricanes happen. They always have. Harvey was made much worse due to the interaction of multiple fronts which hemmed it in, instead of allowing it to move quickly like hurricanes usually do. It’s called “weather”. But, not in the Warmist World of Vox

The torrential rain from Hurricanes Maria, Irma, and Harvey is a strong signal of climate change

As Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria plowed through unusually warm oceans this summer, each one broke records, startling even the scientists who study extreme weather.

“All of these storms went through a period where they gained strength quickly,” said James Kossin, an atmospheric scientist at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction. “That was alarming.”

The intensity of Hurricane Maria, which made landfall on Puerto Rico as a Category 4 storm on September 20, was part of why it was so devastating to the island and its weak infrastructure, leaving Puerto Ricans in a humanitarian crisis.

But this year’s intense Atlantic storm season had another element tying its biggest events together: a monstrous, and sometimes deadly, amount of rain.

OK, you get where Excitable Umair Irfan is going, and, of course, Umair throws in the standard line

No single weather event — even an extreme one — can be “caused” by climate change, as Vox’s David Roberts has explained in detail. And when talking about hurricanes, researchers are quite hesitant to even estimate how much climate change is to blame. Huffman said he’s not yet sure if this storm season is “unprecedented” in its ferocity.

Of course, Umair goes on to attempt to Blame these storms on a changing climate, with the unspoken assertion that this is all caused by Mankind. One has to wonder why the previous almost 12 years of minimal landfalling major hurricanes isn’t included? Seriously, if all this talk of warmer temperatures, expanding and rising seas, more water in the atmosphere, etc, are such strong signals, then what to make of the previous 12 seasons?
