For the first time in more than 80 years, the Atlantic Ocean hasn’t produced a named storm between July 3 and Aug. 31. So the Climatistas will have to celebrate Labor Day this year for its Marxist roots rather than the weather destruction they’re constantly rooting for so they can blame it on man.
The Atlantic’s failure to form a tempest is a rarity. It “has had no #hurricanes yet this year,” Colorado State University meteorologist Philip Klotzbach tweeted Thursday. 2022’s calm spell happens to be only the seventh time since 1950 that the Atlantic “has gone through August without a #hurricane. Other years are: 1967, 1984, 1988, 2001, 2002, 2013.”
In a separate tweet, Klotzbach acknowledged something that Democrats, the know-it-all media, and the agenda-driven extremists will likely never admit: “Forecasting the weather and climate keeps you humble!”
The Atlantic storms will eventually arrive. And the alarmists will blame them on human greenhouse gas emissions. It’s the blueprint. But for now, their taste for disaster has to go unsated as their narrative fails again.
Of course this is merely a single point of reality. There are others.
For instance, Arctic ice is at a decade-high level. Wasn’t supposed to disappear altogether by now due to our miserable fossil fuel addiction?
Then there’s the Great Barrier Reef, which “set new records for extent this year.” This, only a few months after the Washington Post, acting as a mouthpiece for the entire global warming racket, said “climate warming has dealt yet another blow to the Great Barrier Reef,” as it had just suffered its “sixth massive bleaching event.”
Have we left out any recent news? Oh, yes, there was the release of the World Climate Declaration, which calmly points out “there is no climate emergency.”
