NOAA Predicts ‘Below-Normal’ Hurricane Season; Obama Takes Climate-Change Victory Lap

Font Size:

If there’s a hurricane today, that’s proof of global warming climate change. If there’s not a hurricane today, that’s also proof of global warming climate change. Everything is proof of global warming climate change. Unless, of course, you’re a science-denier.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration:

For the hurricane season, which officially runs from June 1 – November 30, NOAA is predicting a 70 percent likelihood of 6 to 11 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 3 to 6 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including zero to 2 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). While a below-normal season is likely (70 percent), there is also a 20 percent chance of a near-normal season, and a 10 percent chance of an above-normal season.

Ten percent?

And thus was President Obama’s faith in scientists (who tell him what he wants to hear) vindicated. Let ’em know, POTUS!

As you wish, Mr. President. I #ActOnClimate by flying all over the place telling other people to reduce their carbon footprint. I #ActOnClimate by cherry-picking facts that help me politically, and ignoring the rest. I #ActOnClimate by defaming people who question my beliefs, because there’s nothing less scientific than skepticism. That’s how I #ActOnClimate.

How about you guys?
