I have zero experience in weather or related science, but even I know how hurricanes work. Simply, pressure in atmosphere, hurricanes is formed, equalizes pressure, no/light hurricanes for a while, repeat process!! OMG! Circular events are hard to predict!

Well they haven't been silent, clearly. Between the droughts in the tropics and coastal cities, the Arctic being 30 degrees warmer than it should be, the polar vortex finally bleeding through into the North American continent due to weakening winds failing to keep them in place...

If you think nobody's been pointing out humans' effect on the climate, you've been sleeping under a rock. And this is among the most powerful hurricanes in recorded history.

Screw all those welfare scientists.

It's time to shut down all the forced public fundings of non essential things.

Sell all those weather satellites. Sell the planes that fly into the storms. Lay off all the statistical priests and mathematical astrologers.

I'd rather be forced to surrender 80% of my pay to African tribal dindus than give another cent to these reeeeing nerds on the public dole.

At least the dindus will spend their money quietly in some far away dung heap and leave me alone.

Get some real employment in the private sector you slide rule mongering leeches.

And here we get to the root of the problem. Anti-intellectualism. This is why southern culture is shitty and why southern whites underperform nothern whites in pretty much every category.

Just because some scientists and liberals sell bullshit "Green" products to make money don't mean that man made climate change aint happening buddy.

Just because some hippy tries to sell you avocado water to cure your stomach cancer doesnt mean that you dont actually have stomach cancer.

Also google "controlled opposition"

Who would you sell the weather satellites to? They do one job and they're in space! Not the easiest thing to sell.

But Donald Trump says climate change isn't real, so now everyone here knows it isn't real.

warmer than it should be

Given the wide variation the climate has had in the past ten thousand years (without even getting into the times millions of years ago when it was even hotter) ...

How do we determine what it's supposed to be?

Given the wide variation

Where did this graph come from?

How do we determine what it's supposed to be?

You'll have to ask a climatologist. But we can clearly see that the current changes are driven specifically by human activity. You don't spew gigatons of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere and have it not affect the climate. That'd be bizarre. Literally unexplainable.

What is the point of the thermometer record being mentioned? You can measure past temperatures by looking at ice cores.

Arctic being 30 degrees warmer than it should be

Based on what? Data from the last 130 years?

Humans, homo sapiens, have been around for millions of years? The Arctic is 30 degrees warmer than it ever has been?

Uh... Look. Do scientists and especially liberals exaggerate and sell bullshit studies and bullshit PRODUCTS. YUP. We are still affecting the climate and its not in a good way.

Just because some charlatan tries to sell you avocado water as a cure for cancer doesn't mean you don't still actually have cancer.

And all the ice cores. Don't forget the ice cores.

Humans, homo sapiens, have been around for millions of years?

Yes. Roughly two million.

The Arctic is 30 degrees warmer than it ever has been?

At least since the beginning of the current ice age.

How about weaponized weather? HAARP?

To make Puerto Rico into a state? And the other islands into territories? We might just get Cuba back again.

Me and a buddy did a FOIA request back in 2002 on the HAARP program, we got back 3 large legal sized envelopes stuffed to the gills with redacted page after redacted page. The only thing readable was the first 4 pages about how it was a testing station or some shit like that. It was kinda of exciting but a complete let down.

They know enough people will believe it without question. All they need is a well paid scientist with a PowerPoint presentation.

They've already stigmatized climate change denial and no one wants to be uncool in the age of social media.

It's called cloud seeding and been going on for 40 + years.

Guess what makes really good cloud seeds? Airborne Saharan sand. Huh, I wonder why all of these storms start off of the coast of Africa.

Is it land made or are we sort of finally coming out of the ice age?

It is climate change but it could very well be natural.

I agree with the man-made part - they use HARP to turbo-charge these storms.
