Florence Rains May Have Been 50% Greater Due To ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

See this is the way “climate science” from the Cult of Climastrology works

Sketchy climate change conclusions about Florence

It stands to reason, on the face of it, that a warmer climate should contribute to more severe hurricanes. Warmer air is capable of generating larger amounts of precipitation on a daily basis, with those increases significantly more evident during an extreme event like a hurricane. Still, a new study suggesting that Hurricane Florence’s rains were 50 percent greater because of climate change is exceedingly sketchy. Conducted by Stony Brook University, it’s a so-called pre-attribution study, meaning that its conclusions were reached before Florence even made landfall. With a large segment of the U.S. population doubting the settled science of climate change because of certain political allegiances, the last thing we need are studies like this.

At any rate, the study concluded that warmer temperatures were responsible for maintaining Florence’s high intensity, even though it dropped to a Category 1 storm before coming ashore. Yes, several locations in the Carolinas measured record tropical rainfall during Florence, but that was largely because the storm stalled over the area following landfall. And that was chiefly due to strong high pressure to the north that refused to budge for days, leaving nowhere for Florence to go.

What Todd Hill is referring to is this

Hurricane Florence’s Rains May Be 50% Worse Thanks to Climate Change

The catastrophic rains accompanying Hurricane Florence along the U.S. East Coast can be blamed squarely on climate change, new research shows. The rainfall was projected to be more than 50 percent worse than it would have been without global warming, a team of scientists said before the storm made landfall. The hurricane’s size was predicted to be about 50 miles (80 kilometers) wider for the same reason. In parts of North Carolina, as much as 30 inches of rain has already been recorded, setting a state record for the highest rainfall received from any one storm.

In other words, this was a prognostication. The article, which was repeated in some form throughout much of the Credentialed Media, was published on September 13th. Florence did not make landfall till the 14th. No one in North Carolina had received 30 inches of rain by even the end of that Thursday. Wilmington, NC, had about an inch and a half. It wasn’t till Friday that they started to get a lot (over 9 inches that day.) No other station in NC reported that much rain on Thursday.

Just the Cult being the Cult.

    I remember back in June that Joe Bastardi in one of his briefings warned that there was a greater hurricane threat to the U.S. east coast this year due to sea surface cooling over the the last few years. And that hurricanes of the sort seen in the 1930s are a risk to the US East Coast this year, due the current Atlantic temperature pattern. The reason had nothing to do with CO2 in the atmosphere, but because of natural sea surface temperature cycles.

    They “may” have. Or, they may not have. *Science*

  3. JGlanton says:

    And how about the other 3 hurricanes that fizzled out while Florence was on her journey west? Did they fizzle out from Climate Change? Did someone predict that Climate Change would make hurricanes wetter and stronger, and also make them drier and weaker?

    Just a bunch of yapping lapdogs.https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_negative.gif
