    If you trot out single events like this, you can’t complain when ACC doubters trot out cold weather anecdotes to deny global warming.
    Neither make any sense & you don’t see scientists of any stripe doing int.
    I know Probability & Statistics are hard, but you have to learn some math and a little science for yourself if you’re going to form any meaningful opinion or be a wise voter.

    Yep, this is a single event. There haven’t been ANY floods, droughts. super typhoons or other unusual weather events in the past decade.
    And ain’t if funny how you reference ‘probability and statistics’ but don’t actually CITE any?

    And how about that Lindsay Graham, huh? Voted against relief for Hurricane Sandy, but when HIS state gets hit, he’s the first one holding his hand out.
    In other words, typical rightie Republican.
    Just the same, I think he should be given what he’s asking for. There’s peoples lives in the balance here, and that should be our first concern, regardless

    Uh, it’s called “weather”. Oh, and “hurricane season”.

    No, they’re not on board. They’re there to drill holes in the boat to prove you wrong.

    You mean there was no tax money spent on Sandy relief?Maybe it was just all the amendments to the bill that had little or nothing to do with the storm that were voted against.
    Would the news nerds have called it “Super Storm Sandy” if it had gone to the Gulf Coast?

    If folks would even bother to read a synopsis of the Global Climate Change they would know it says some places wetter, some dryer, some colder, some hotter! But of course that would take some effort, and they might learn something.

    Anything in the Bible is LOCAL to the Eastern Mediterranean. I don’t deny climate change, or the overwhelming scientific evidence. I’m pretty sure the Chinese were reproducing happily whilst Noah (if he existed) thought he was the last person on earth. The cartoon might be improved with a caption about “sorry, no more seats available..”

    You do know they aren’t right?

    It’s mind-boggling to realize that, this deep into the 21st Century, we still have people who apparently don’t understand the difference between weather and climate. Here’s the deal:
     • Weather is short-term; climate is long-term.
     • Weather is individual measurements; climate is average measurements.
     • Weather is what you get; climate is what you expect.
     • Weather is umbrellas; climate is ice ages.
     • Weather is the city council; climate is the United Nations.
     • Weather is 3 minutes on TV; climate is doctoral dissertations.
     • Weather comes and goes; climate just keeps on coming.
     • Weather change kills off individual plants and animals; climate change kills off entire species.
     • Weather is Angry Birds; climate is The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.
    Any American adult who doesn’t understand this by now must be:
    (1) a social promotion from a special-ed class.
    (2) working for a fossil-fuel company and whose salary depends on the public not wising up during her or his lifetime.
    (3) deliberately disingenuous.
    (4) a religious fanatic who buys into the 2000-year-old lie that their favorite dead guy is due back tomoro, having disappointed a hundred previous generations of True Believers because he’s been waiting especially for YOU to be around when it happens, because that’s how important YOU are!
    These categories are not mutually exclusive.

    Utah congressmen still think Galileo was wrong about the heavens because he was the guy responsible for making screw off cap wine in California.

    • * *
      No he didn’t. He voted against all the pork in the bill that had nothing to do with Hurricane Sandy.
      It was a $60 billion package.
      47 states got community development funding, Amtrak corridors unaffected by Sandy were included, lots of other things that had nothing to do with Sandy. Republicans had a $24 billion alternative that was focused on Sandy.
      And now we know that only 11% of that $60 billion was appropriated in the first year – a lot of the money is unaccounted for and was mismanaged.

    Graham has said “as much as necessary” for South Carolina — essentially, he is voting for a blank check for his state.
    Yeah, it’s hypocritical. If he thought there was too much pork, he should have negotiated it out.
