All Those January Winter Storms? Your Faul

Here we go again: the Cult of Climastrology is continuing to blame winter storms of anthropogenic climate change

January Was Awash With Extreme Winter Storms. Climate Change Likely Played a Role
In the West, Northeast, Midwest and even the South, states experienced downpours, blizzards and flash floods this month. Research suggests those events will only become more common.

Winter storm and flood alerts continue this week for millions of Americans following a weekend of flash floods in states such as Pennsylvania and Illinois, where many residents were forced to evacuate their homes as they took on water. It’s the third weekend this month when large swaths of the country have been doused with extreme wintry conditions—a trend that’s becoming increasingly more likely because of climate change, recent analyses show.

In northeastern Illinois, unseasonably warm temperatures destabilized a pileup of ice on the Kankakee River and unleashed major flooding, prompting evacuations of about 200 homes. “There’s always ice backups this time of year, but I’ve never seen it this bad,” one resident told a local news station.

ClimaMeter, an international consortium of climate scientists, released a rapid attribution analysis last week that examined the winter storm systems that occurred Jan. 12-14 across large swaths of the United States. The report found that January saw increased precipitation largely due to climate change, with natural climate variability playing a modest role.

“Our analysis reveals that winter storms in the USA remain a tangible threat, occurring with temperatures akin to those in the past but yielding increased snow or rain precipitation,” Favide Faranda, a scientist with the France-based Institut Pierre-Simon-Laplace and a co-author of the study, said in a statement. “These findings impose additional challenges on adaptation strategies in a globally warmer climate, where winter storms still have the potential to instigate significant disruptions.”

The mid-January storms brought about exceptionally low temperatures from the Northwest to the Midwest, disrupted ground and air travel, caused power outages for hundreds of thousands of households and prompted severe winter weather alerts in more than 17 states.

If everything is caused by your cultish beliefs, it’s a cult. They’re literally blaming very cold temperatures, ice storms, and big snowstorms on heat trapping gases. Not that this is new, but, the insanity continues. They’re saying that the massive snow I watched via webcam in places like Buffalo, Watertown, NY, Vermont, New Hampshire, and others was due to the Earth getting warmer because Other People drive fossil fueled vehicles. It’s nuts. At least Scientology isn’t trying to force their beliefs on everyone.

    Teach is obsessed with the beliefs of others that he doesn’t agree with.

      You mean like you with Trump? I thought so…

      Mr. Teach has established this web site for the expressed purpose of commenting on climate issues and the strange things climate activists are doing and saying. That is not obsession. It is focusing on an issue that interests him. How can you not know how blogging works? It may come as a shock to you, but the internet also has blogs dedicated to ideas that you agree with. Perhaps you could even start your own blog or even a YouTube channel to comment on things you care about. There are plenty of free resources out there to help you get started. Then you too can experience the joys of total strangers leaving comments on your content, even though you didn’t ask them to. It is even possible that Mr. Teach has more than one blog and that, using a marketing principle called “product focus”, each blog has an “obsession” with a different topic area that interests Mr. Teach.

    I grew up in Kankakee. I’ve tubed, rafted and swam in the river. I’ve camped on island in the river with the Boy Scouts and have done clean up projects on it’s shores. Fished for catfish with my father and knew the river well from Kankakee to Wilmington. Winter ice jams are nothing new. We use to go down to Warner Bridge just down river from Kankakee to see the jams and there were time the Army Corp of Engineers came in with explosives to free the river and one time they tried a hover craft with it’s downward air to lift the ice and break it up. Guess what, cabins built near the river flood. My uncle built a home on river banks will above the high water mark. He never flooded. It’s been going on for hundred’s of years. Nothing has changed.

    “H”, you know nothing of what you talk about. Your comments show your lack of knowledge or ability to research. Walk a mile in my moccasins and get back to me. Otherwise your comments are null.

    It was 29.6º F at 8:30 this morning, the first day in eight straight that we dropped below freezing. But, prior to that, we had seven days out of eight in which the temperatures were well below normal, with three days showing temps below zero, something very uncommon in this part of the Bluegrass State. Why, it’s almost as though ‘climate’ is actually an average in a range of normal conditions, rather than daily events.
