CUE “GLOBAL WARMING” CRIES … 

|| By FITSNEWS || Hurricane season for the Atlantic Ocean doesn’t officially start until June 1 … but somebody forgot to tell that to an area of low pressure that’s hovering off the Florida coast.

This storm system (above) hasn’t developed tropical characteristics yet, but there’s a good chance that could change …

In fact according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida, there’s a forty percent chance these storms could develop into a cohesive tropical system over the next two days.  And if that happens, South Carolina is squarely in the “forecast track.”

Naturally, the possibility of a tropical system forming in early May must be due to “global warming,” right?  Because let’s face it … every weather reading/ phenomenon is due to global warming (according to its disciples).  And you’d better damn sure believe in global warming … or else.

But wait … what about Hurricane Alice?  That system formed on December 30, 1954 and reached category one status before dissipating a week later over the Caribbean.

So … was there “global warming” in the fifties, too?

Forecasters Dr. William Gray and Phil Klotzbach released their annual predictions this week and they’re calling for a quiet 2015 season – with seven named storms, three hurricanes and one major hurricane.

Why such little activity?  As it turns out, water temperatures are running below average … although (again) we’re sure that’s the result of “global warming.”

South Carolina has seen 23 hurricane landfalls since 1893 – the most infamous being Hurricane Hugo in 1989. Fortunately the state has avoided any direct hits from major storms since then, although there have been several close calls – including Hurricane Irene in 2011.

The record for the most named storms in a given hurricane season – which technically runs from June 1 through the end of October (with a September 10 peak) – is twenty-five (set in 2005).  The record for the fewest named storms?  Four – in 1983.

Wait, the Heartland Institute told me cigarettes don’t cause cancer. They also told me global warming is a hoax. BTW, check out this great book by the president of the Heartland Institute. It’s real classy and smart. It’s called “Please Don’t Poop in My Salad,” because anyone who writes a book with that title should be trusted to tell us about all that scientific malarkey!

“..a tropical system forming in early May must be due to “global warming..”
The growth in “global warming” is inextricably linked to the growth of “global ignorance.”

If it has been warm in your house lately, you may need to go take a pill.

Funny how deniers cry “global warming” before anyone else. There’s no need to chalk up any one event to global warming. Scientists caution against that, because– oh yeah– they are scientists and are very careful not to confuse correlation with coincidence. And– oh yeah– after decades of research, they’ve concluded that fossil fuels are causing the Earth’s atmosphere and ocean to warm.

So, go ahead and cry “global warming.” But realize it’s you who’s doing so, not scientists.

Actually, I think the correlation piece is higher CO2 in the atmosphere, that is also being correlated to higher temps, that is also being correlated to burning more fossil fuels.

So yeah..correlation.

I wonder what the last Ice Age was blamed on? And its subsequent warming?

The problem I have with all this is what is the perfect temperature that we should stay? And how do we know that?

Tropical storms have a tendency to occur this early every three years or so.

Nothing to see here. Weather patterns and global temps normal.

Oh yeah…and dinosaurs lived amongst fully developed humans a mere 6,000 years ago.

If the hurricane gurus are telling us to get ready for a quiet season, you’d best ruck on down to nearest Home Depot and grab some plywood.

HD has boodles of duck tape in various colors and designs (some weird and odd) — discounted. They can’t get rid of them! After the storm your house (what’s left of it, that is) will be the coolest looking one around. Plywood, duck tape, and the TV crews will find you).

We get these early season storms about every three or so years on average. Not a huge deal, but interesting to watch. Someone is going to get a good bit of rain and so winds in the 40 to 60 miles per hour range. BTW if it is a subtropical storm that’s different than a tropical storm, these used to be named Subtropical storm #1, #2 etc. prior to 2002 so unless you followed weather closely you never heard much about them, in 2002 they put them in with the regular tropical storm and hurricane names. The news LOVES a named storm but not so much something call Subtropical Storm #1.

Liberals – FITS included – are ALWAYS praying for and anticipating a disaster. That way they can take the money the government has confiscated from the earners, and use it to tell victims the government is taking care of them…

And it’s a great opportunity to blame Republicans…There are still a substantial number of average Democrat voters who believe Hurricane Katrina was a manipulation of weather by Bush. How F*#king stupid must you be to be one of them..????
