Hurricane Fiona Is Harbinger Of Climate Doom Or Something

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

You just knew this was coming, right? It’s traditional. Expected. Invariable. Unfailing. The climate cult’s orthodoxy

Hurricane Fiona is a harbinger of climate future

For the second time in five years, Puerto Rico has been blasted with a massive hurricane, causing widespread flooding and power outages, and the increasing severity of these storms is caused by climate change, according to studies.

The island, a U.S. territory that has still not fully recovered from Hurricane Maria in 2017, was hit by Hurricane Fiona on Monday. Parts of Puerto Rico received 30 inches of rain, causing landslides and overflowing rivers. Some rural roads have become impassable and have stranded residents. As of Tuesday morning, 1.17 million of Puerto Rico’s 1.47 million utility customers were without electricity, according to estimates from

Hundreds of Puerto Ricans have been forced from their homes, and the storm is gaining strength as it moves eastward to the Dominican Republic and north to the Turks and Caicos Islands. The U.S. National Hurricane Center warned of “life-threatening” flooding in those nations on Tuesday. Now a Category 3 storm, with winds reaching 115 miles per hour, it has caused deaths in Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Guadeloupe. (snip)

The Caribbean has always experienced hurricanes in late summer, but the storms have become more intense, on average, as a result of global warming. For each additional degree Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit) of temperature, the air holds 7% more moisture. More water in the air leads to stronger storms. According to NASA, the average global temperature has risen by 1.1 degrees Celsius (2 degrees Fahrenheit) since the Industrial Revolution, as humans have emitted heat-trapping gases by burning fossil fuels.

Storms are also made stronger by warmer ocean temperatures, which provide the energy that powers hurricanes.

Just because someone says something doesn’t mean it’s true. Yes, temperatures have risen, but, there’s no hard proof obtained using the scientific method that it was mostly/solely caused by the actions of mankind, especially fossil fuels. If fossil fuels are so bad then why haven’t all the Warmists stopped using them themselves? The first recorded was Hurricane San Roque in August of 1508. And many since, because of where Puerto Rico is. Though, it doesn’t get as many as you would think because of different factors. The strongest was Hurricane San Felipe II in 1928, the only category 5, which killed 312 (Maria in 2017 was a category 4 at landfall).

Last year, a study of satellite images going back to 1979, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, showed that climate change had increased the chance that a hurricane would reach Category 3 or higher by roughly 8% each decade. A Category 3 hurricane is defined as one with sustained winds of at least 110 mph.

What about all the other storms since the beginning of the Modern Warm Period in 1850? Can we compare this to tropical systems in the Little Ice Age? How about the Medievel Warm Period and Roman Warm Period? Rather important to have those baselines and comparisons, to see if this is different. Of course, the climate cultists need neither science nor proof, because it’s all about scaremongering.
